Unleash Your Potential by Landing the Best Fitting Job

I have assisted thousands of clients in job search from the classes I teach to the clients I counsel and work with individually. For most, the goal is to prepare, execute and land a job as quickly as possible. I keep up-to-date with the current trends in recruitment and hiring, the best resources and practices in getting noticed and uncovering hidden jobs.

My goal is to get you noticed by clearly and concisely highlighting your abilities, potential, expertise and accomplishments. This is what employers want to see and hear.

Not only is it important to know the mechanics of doing job search it is imperative to understand the nature of this process. It can be very up and down like a roller coaster ride. What I do throughout this process is objectively tell you like it is from my years of experience while offering caring support and direction to keep you balanced and focused on what matters most.

Depending on your needs, we may work through the following eight steps of the job search process or on specific areas where you need the most guidance and feedback.

8 Step Job Search Process

  • Determination of Objective(s) & Brand – What is your profession and preferred functions? What are you known for and what is unique about you? Knowing this will guide your search and also the creation of your communications materials.
  • Resume Writing/Revision – Your resume needs to be tailored, targeted and focused on the job you want to land. Depending on your objective(s) you may need more than one master resume. I can guide and assist in creating or updating your resume from format to content so it looks great and communicates your value.
  • LinkedIn Profile – This is the most powerful and effective professional networking tool for job search and recruiting. Your profile is a key element in increasing your visibility online and I can help you in building or updating so that it showcases your brand and value.
  • Marketing – Developing a marketing strategy and plan is your game plan and roadmap for the search, which includes your criteria and employment targets.
  • Communications & Networking – How are you communicating and networking both online and offline? There are many tools and ways to communicate from a cover letter and thank you note to the content of your e-mails, joining and participating in LinkedIn groups to updating your status. How you approach networking contacts, conduct an informational interview to answering the question, “What do you do?” is essential to your success.
  • Interviewing Skills – You cannot land a job without an interview. Today the average is 3-5 rounds of interviews before a decision is made. Your interviewing skills need to be top notch to impress the interviewers and to beat out the competition.
  • Salary Negotiation – You can negotiate salary and the compensation package without losing the offer. Understand the elements of the offer and compensation package and do the research to know what you are worth, then plan and negotiate to get what you deserve.
  • Onboarding & Transition – Starting a new position is often a little scary and overwhelming. It is a big change and change is not always easy. You want to learn about your new role and company as quickly as you can, fit in well with the workplace and culture while building relationships, being productive and contributing as quickly as possible.
