And is it tougher than you had hoped? Whatever your circumstance, you likely need a clearer focus. Therefore, you will appreciate that achieving all of this will require dedicated effort, skillful implementation and patience on your part.
Equity can be your partner moving forward. We can be at your side as your Career Transition Coach. We will add structure to your efforts and upgrade the way you are approaching the marketplace. After we get to know you, we insert consistency into your campaign. And then, we will help uncover new possibilities and solidify your motivation and confidence.
We assign a well-matched Career Transition coach to educate, motivate and guide you through the entire process.
People learn differently and because of it, respond best to a variety of coaching methods. Some are ready to advance quickly into campaign implementation, while others require emotional healing after a job loss. We utilize various tools and techniques to builds skills, overcome barriers and enable a personal relationship that achieves results.
Our services are staged this way because we want you to work at your own pace and communicate in a style that is natural for you.
Everyone is different and each of our clients have unique needs and desires; accordingly, you drive the content and pace of delivery.
Each program, at the minimum, will address the following:
1. Dealing With Uncertainty and Examining Your Options
A job loss or unplanned change can create emotional distress. It can also paralyze your ability to move forward. We help individuals constructively address these barriers to enable a stronger focus on the challenges ahead. Is it better to continue doing similar work or transition into a different role? Are there particular sectors or organizations that should be targeted? All of these questions allow us to guide our clients through an exploration of realistic possibilities.
Ultimately, we want to get you moving in a direction which gives you the best advantage.
2. Preparing Your Resume
First and foremost, a resume must be a selling tool and not a historical summary of your career. It needs to demonstrate skill and showcase results. A compelling value proposition which defines your abilities must come through from your resume. We help you project your benefits and contribution. You will craft a powerful resume that will inspire readers to want to learn more about you.
Eventually we want recruiters to meet with you in person.
3. Accessing Opportunities and Conducting Outreach
There are two fundamental pathways to success. Both are critical to gain optimum exposure.
1. Visible – pursuing specific positions posted online, in print or through outside recruiters.
We share proven methods of how to apply to competitive jobs. These tactics will greatly increase your chances of getting past the ‘gatekeepers’ who control access to the hiring managers.
2. Hidden – becoming known to key decision makers even if no job seems open at the time.
We reveal creative networking techniques which put you in front of the right people who can open up more doors. We will provide answers to many useful questions such as: Which websites and job boards are best? How can social networking channels broaden possibilities? How should recruitment firms be utilized? What letters, when and how, will need to be written along the way?
Consequently, we ensure that you know where and how to proceed efficiently.
4. Succeeding at Interviews
Interviews are all about effectively selling under pressure in different venues to varied audiences. It is a learned skill. Accordingly, we demonstrate how to properly prepare, ask the right questions, answer questions convincingly, tell stories, deal with compensation, present professionally.
We will practice mock scenarios with you and provide pointed feedback to adjust strategy for upcoming live interviews.
All of this is done to impress the audience and advance you to the next stage.
5. Closing the Deal
In conclusion, this journey is about having you secure the best legitimate and attractive offer.
We advise on how to utilize references and review terms of employment. Where possible, we can help you boost your negotiation skills to improve the offer. Most of all, we will help identify common loopholes in employment contracts and assist you with working through them with your potential employer. We discuss productive on-boarding strategies and help you get started on the right food in your job.
Our clients, from virtually every industry sector and functional specialty, speak volumes about the impact we have made and the ease of collaborating with us.
Let us demystify the complexities of Career Transition and help you transform pending uncertainty from a ‘chill’ to a ‘thrill’.
