Career Assessment & Planning:

I have been continually amazed at how many people have spent significant time in a career that brings them no sense of passion or fulfillment.  Millions of people are working in careers that leave them feeling empty inside, frustrated, burned out and don't allow them to work at their potential.  Sometimes, they're actually in the right job, but the organizational culture is a bad fit.  Other times, the organization is right but the job itself is a bad fit.  Organizations spend thousands of dollars training new employees when they may have actually had the right employee who was just in the wrong job within the organization. 

This process will help you identify your skills, interests, priorities, values, strengths, leadership style, preferences, etc. so that you can begin to create a vision for your career and set immediate, mid-term and long-term goals.  It has been my experience that if you don't know who you are and what you want, it is very difficult to create a life and career you love!  Self-awareness is absolutely KEY to being at the cause of your life rather than a victim of circumstances.  If you don't know what you want to do, there will be more than enough people around you who will likely TELL you what you should be doing.  Often with good intentions!  However, those suggestions are THEIR vision for YOUR life.  That vision may not be aligned with what you truely want for yourself. 

Decisions, choices and opportunities that come up are infinitely more easy to navigate when you have a clear sense of where you want to go.  Not knowing those answers is a lot like being in the ocean in a canoe with no oars!  You'll get tossed and turned by all of the "waves" around you hoping you'll wind up somewhere you want to be!  My intention is to help you be far more proactive in your life.  

Resume Review and Development:

Once you know what you're looking for and what you bring to the table with regard to your experience, accomplishments, education and training; it's time to put the "pen to paper" and create your resume.  In today's job market, there is a lot of competition.  The resume is very important because, in many cases, your resume is not found by a person, but a computer that looks for keywords.  So you do want to give it your best effort to put yourself in the best position to be "found" and get an opportunity for an interview.  However, for those who hope to spend their job search on the computer applying to job postings, that is NOT the most effective way to get that interview and find a job!  It simply does not work that way!  Even in today's market, your #1 job search strategy is going to be networking!  It's WHO you know and who they can refer you to.  A successful job search strategy does not include spending the majority of your time on the computer applying to internet job ads.  Many people do this because it makes them "feel" productive.  Honestly, it's not the best use of your time.  You do need to spend some time in your job search doing that, but if that's where you spend most of your time, you'll be looking for a very long time!

Job Search Strategy:

We will work together to create a strategy for your job search that will help you get what you want more effictively in less time with less effort and frustration.  I'll cover responding to ads, writing different types of letters, getting through gatekeepers, networking and many other topics.  This process is often what can make the difference between becoming one of the long term unemployed and finding a job.  To qualify that, there are some people who have done all of the "right" things and are still struggling to find a job.  It does happen.  Especially in these times.  Some jobs have virtually "disappearred" from the job market.  For those that have found that to be the case, the next step in the process is REINVENTION.  If that's the case for you, let's talk.  For the rest, I invite you to keep an open mind and explore all of the opportunities available to you to have an effective job search.  I can support you along the way.  You may know that a job search can be a lot like a rollercoaster ride.  With the tools, techniques and strategies I've learned in helping thousands across the country in career transition; it can make the highs and lows of that ride a lot less traumatic. 

Interview Practice:

Many people get really nervous about interviews.  It can feel intimidating to have so much riding on one conversation.  My goal is to help you feel confident, prepared and able to handle any question that's thrown your way.  Interviewing also has a lot to do with mindset.  We'll take a look at your thoughts, beliefs and energy around interviewing along with your verbal and nonverbal presentation to make sure you're ready to present yourself in the best way possible. 

Negotiating Offers, Salary and Benefits:

How do you respond when you've been given an offer, but you haven't heard back from the job you're really interested in?  What if the offer's to low?  What if they can't budge on the salary?  These are all things we'll talk through so that you feel prepared when the time comes. 

Coaching for Successful Transition to New Position:

After all of the work you've done to get that offer, we'll discuss any concerns or fears you may have about being successful in your new position.  If there are any negative thoughts or feelings about your past employer, manager, colleagues or organization; it's very important that you learn to shift that before you walk into a new job.  If you lost a job and it wasn't your choice, we will have discussed that at the very beginning of our coaching together.  What I'm referring to here is any remaining negativity that is lingering.  If that energy still lingers, you are highly likely to carry it with you into the new situation which can drastically harm you chance for a successful new beginning.
