Job Search Strategy Coaching
Interested in starting your next career move, but not sure how? If you’re like many other professionals who might be out of work or discreetly seeking their next opportunity, you know what it’s like to try to find a job in today’s highly competitive market. Having the right skills isn’t always enough to land your next job.
A strong job search campaign strategy is critical. You don’t want to go full-steam ahead in the wrong direction! We can talk through what roles and organizations you’re targeting, and make sure you have a solid plan.
During our time together, we’ll discuss your current strategy and how to make it more effective. Common topics include networking, the power of LinkedIn, informational interviewing, pointers for your resume and cover letter, and interviewing.
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented both opportunities and challenges for job seekers; we can also work through how your job search strategy has changed now that you might not have to live where you work. The explosion of remote work means the labor pool is larger and more competitive—but it also means you might be able to live in Florida and work for a company in New York.
Many job seekers consider this session their A-to-Z guide—a session that gets them excited to start their job search campaign. Contact me to learn more and schedule your job search coaching session.
Networking and Informational Interview Coaching
Networking can help you connect to your next job, even if you don’t like the idea of networking or feel uncomfortable doing it. Many introverts or people who’ve never had to expand their circle often find networking difficult—and recoil at the thought of it.
Networking is one of the most effective ways to help you make your next career transition because it helps ensure your application documents are read. Because resumes are frequently filtered through applicant tracking systems, it helps to be well connected.
My clients and I often discuss informational interviewing and how it can benefit your job search—and give clarity on the direction you want to take. (See note above about making sure you’re heading full-steam in the right direction!)
If you haven’t heard of informational interviewing, this is simply the term for having purposeful conversations with people to learn about their career, their job, and/or the organization they are working for. By learning this information, job seekers can become better applicants because they are better informed.
Making a good impression during informational interviews can accelerate the pace of your job search. The people you speak with might tell you about potential job openings and recommend others you can talk to on your informational interview journey.
Through coaching, you’ll learn key aspects to successful networking and how purposeful networking through LinkedIn, meet-up groups, and informational interviewing might very well be just what you need to make your next career move.
