- Job Search Strategy - How to Launch Your Career successfully to create a better path to joining a quality company.
In this challenging context, let me organise my sweep of your career and help create a summary in chronological order, one that will hopefully characterise your professional life in a clear message you can easily articulate
- Resume Service: I will discuss your resume and give you a critique. If it needs more work then I can assist and you will also get a VIP referral our Resume Doctor, who is a super wordsmith as a practising journalist and former corporate communications specialist
- Interview Preparation: I have conducted over 1,000 interview sessions and provided valuable help to candidates.
- Career Advice: This comes in many forms to assist you with a new role and position at your current employer, a move to a new employer and another role, or a "Free-Change" to a new job in a new sector, requiring a new skill-set.
- The Cover Letter: The cover letter is often seen as unnecessary by some, but I differ on that point. All job applications require an email which is essentially a cover letter. There are 7 key parts to such a letter or email, plus a couple of tricks to get the reader to take real notice of you and your application.
- Networking activities: To assist your job search by getting electronic reach.
- Redundancy support: When Outplacement Services have not been provided.
- Phased Retirement plans: Learn to be relaxed about some of the options.
- Building an online personal brand: This is Linkedin, Twitter and Facebook and I share with you the the do's and don’ts in the new social networks age
- Linkedin as the ‘new resume and making a winning’ profile. Recruiters will generally have looked at your profile and, in many cases, they will have it on their computer screen when they phone you.
- Exploring self-employment or setting up a business: I have significant personal experience in both self-employment and establishing a business, and can provide you with the benefits of that experience in helping with the many challenges you will face.
Career management or transition support
- Job search strategies: Building a 40-step strategy for success. What’s better than a good plan well implemented? An excellent strategy excellently implemented - that's how to get an excellent job.
- Interviewing assistance: The Art of the Job Interview.Typically there are four parts of a job interview for which candidates should prepare: (1) The opening; (2) Chronological review, including who you really are as a person, how you think, and what are the major influences, such as work ethic, values and personality; (3) Assessment of your background and track record against the core skills, experiences, and competencies; (4) Your questions, which are just important as your answers (‘He who asks the questions controls the agenda’). I will discuss the whiteboard and how that can control an interview.
- Making the most of your current job: Gaining access to new responsibilities and opportunities through cultivating mentors, volunteering for ‘stretch’ assignments, and pursuing an advanced degree:
-Networking strategies within your current employer
- Is there potential for redundancy and if so the important discussions you should have with The Job Dr.
