Sometimes job search and career management can be a do-it-yourself project. If you visit the Job Search Tools page you can find advice, tools and tips to move you along.
Other times, you need more help.
I Work with Groups
I work with groups of people and provide guidance and support that way. Sure, I could provide individuals with the same help, but it is a lot more fun for me (and cost-effective for you) to work in groups. These groups can meet online or in person if you live in the Rochester, NY area. My preference is to work virtually. This saves time, money and teaches you how to use technology (which you will most likely need to learn how to use anyway!)
There are several paths to choose from:
Starting Your Search: Base Camp
- How to get your job search started
- Documentation (Marketing plan, LinkedIn profile, resume)
- Setting up your network
- Interviewing best practices
- Making the most of your time/activities
Reviving a Stalled Search: Level 2
- Nuances of interviewing
- Advanced tweaking of written materials
- Leveraging social media
- Career alternatives (portfolio, contractor)
New On the Job: The Summit
- Network management
- Time management
- Goal setting, 30-60-90 day plan
Comprehensive assessment of your current social standing (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, blogging, and Google+) and recommendations for steps to improve your personal online reputation.
An evaluation of the language being used in your profile and the strength of the message you are sending. Additionally, suggestions on valuable missing information and applications that can help set you apart from the competition.
You have been getting interviews and you haven’t gotten a job offer yet.
Most likely there is something going on during the interview.
I will send you a list of sample interview questions and suggested types of answers before we interview. Our mock interview will be recorded while we are on Skype. Once the interview is over, we’ll debrief the interview. This will all be emailed to you in a video file.
If you are interested in scheduling this 30 minute mock interview and up to 30 minutes of feedback (total time, up to one hour), contact me and we’ll schedule it!
