Job Search Strategies: Effective Networking, Resumes, Interview Skills
Learn skills and secrets of the trade for effective networking, writing successful resumes and insightful letters and interview preparation.
- Who should you have in your network, what can they do for you? Let your network work for you, now and in the future. We will work on how you should structure your network and what you need to do to make sure your network stays loyal to you.
- Resumes and job related letters are a very important part of your job search. We work together to choose the right format, keywords and content to deliver real impact.
- Interviewing is an art, not magic. We work together to prepare you for the various types of interviews, and yes, there are several types and settings. How you prepare for an interview is dictated by the type of interview (e.g. board-review vs screening) and setting (in-person, video, phone, etc.). MEcoaching365 will walk you through the steps to prepare for the different interview types and settings.
In today’s competitive work environment managing a career is not an easy task. Career Management coaching can help put your career plans in perspective to make strategically sound decisions. We will use your career roadmap, or help you develop one if needed, as a guide to assess your career progress and help you redefine your journey as required to reach your goals. Career management is best thought of as an on-going mentoring relationship that grows and flourishes as time passes.
It isn’t always easy to distinguish oneself amongst others in the job market, but that is exactly what you need to do to land the perfect job. By learning to define and articulate your value proposition in a clear, credible, appealing manner while showing your exclusivity you will gain the edge needed to stand out. We work together to craft a value proposition that does just that for your would-be-employer or clients. Your “elevator pitch” or “one-minute commercial” on what you do, as well as your LinkedIn profile, comes from your value proposition. Remember you only make a first impression once, make it count.
You know you are tired of what you do, but you do not know what you want to do next. Sound familiar? You’re not alone. Using personality type assessments we gain an understanding of your strengths and what you value most. You will then be in an excellent position to choose a career that will be most rewarding. Once you know what your “dream job” is we can create a roadmap that will help guide you there.
Career Roadmap Development
Together we develop a career roadmap with goals and realistic timelines for on-going career progress. The career roadmap is a “living” document as goals, priorities and the job market tend to change. We have periodic check points to reassess goals and modify as appropriate. The outcome from this service will give you a visual tool to follow to achieve your goals. This service is such a critical part to the success of your career that it is offered as a stand-alone service as well as part of other popular services.
Communication / Presentation Skills
Communications experts estimate that only 7% of our communication is represented by the words we say. Another 38% is represented by our sounds, and 55% by our body language. Having confident body language appears to make perfect sense, but how do you deal with phone calls if they can’t see you? This service will help you refine your communication skills to feel more at ease during interviews as well as learn how to better deliver presentations to peers and clients, whether it is over the phone or in person. Learn how to use body language and storytelling techniques to better communicate with that person or group you’re trying to impress.
