Job Search

You have just found out about an exciting new job opportunity.  It's the career opportunity you've dreamed of.  OR, you've just experience the shock of a life time -- you lost your job!

In either situation, are you prepared to market yourself in a way that confidently communicates experience that directly relates to the needs and requirements of that job?  Can you convince an interviewer that you are the one they should hire?  Can you project yourself in a way that inspires confidence, professionalism, and success?  In other words, do you have the self-marketing skills necessary to land the "ideal" job?

Take charge of your job search by:

  • Prepare your resume/CV database; Cover letters
    Your resume/cover letter is the first contact you have with a potential employer - so make it count! Consider your resume/cover letter a persuasive document where you persuade the reader to "pick up the phone and call!" To meet this objective, you'll learn about crafting a resume/CV database. Rather than using the same "one-size-fits-all" resume for each job opportunity, you'll learn how to use the database to customize cover letters and resumes that are unique for EACH application you submit. Templates are provided. Developing a CV or resume data base also helps you prepare for and conduct interviews more effectively.
  • Write letters that get attention
    In addition to cover letters and resumes we'll explore ways to effectively prepare other written correspondence including marketing and introduction letters; thank-you notes that follow an information or job interview, and follow-up letters. We'll also cover how to respond to those hated rejection letters. Templates are provided and letters are reviewed and feedback given.
  • Network & Information interviews

  • Prepare for and participate in job interviews
    Interviewing ability is critical for a successful job search. You will plan for and practice interviewing techniques. Your goal: improve confidence and competence at taking charge of the job interview by learning how to uncover specific needs of an hiring organization and how best to match your accomplishments to those needs. Executives will learn techniques to present themselves in the most positive and effective manner including 1) making a positive first impression, 2) preparing for typical interview questions; 3) responding to questions, 4) asking questions that draw out critical information and 5) follow-up activities.
  • Negotiate the final agreement and employment agreement.
