Stop Playing “Where’s Waldo” with Your Career Prospects – Find Help Locating and Achieving Your Life’s Purpose
How confident do you feel about your current resume/vita? Is it doing its job so you can do yours?
How well do you interview? Have you had practice interviewing at the level you would now like to work?
Are there issues connected with your resume, such as gaps in your work history, which you feel uncomfortable addressing in your resume, in cover letters, or in interviews?
It can be very important to identify such issues and to develop strategies for handling them throughout your job search process. It is equally important to develop a sense of confidence regarding the interview process.
Working with a career counselor who is familiar with the resume review and interview processes and the myriad feelings that go along with searching for a job – one often encounters more rejection when searching for a job than when looking for a romantic partner – is more than just helpful, it can be vital to your success. And having someone knowledgeable about these issues to talk with on an ongoing basis is even more so!
There are few things as difficult as looking for, and acquiring, the right job! It is an extremely time-consuming, nerve-wracking, and emotionally troubling process… The problems are not yours alone, and you don’t have to go through them alone either.
I can help you create a personal brand and job-search strategy, research job options, craft a successful resume, and prepare for interviews and salary negotiations.
If you’re interested in:
- Getting a new job – I can help you figure out what you’re qualified and interested in doing, design a self-marketing and networking strategy, and create an “exit plan” for your current place of employment;
- Researching options – I can help you conduct in-depth research on job openings, companies, industries, and general economic information;
- Marketing yourself successfully – I can help you clarify, strategize and learn to communicate your most marketable skills and accomplishments, design a networking plan to help you change jobs and build your career; or
- Finding a job today – I can help you create a targeted resume that captivates prospective employers; strategize your interviewing “angle” and develop succinct, content-rich responses, and build your self-confidence and establish your professional value.
Some things can be accomplished in your next job, while others will take time and a career path that might include further education, but with effective identification of your goals and a knowledge of the job market, it is eventually possible to earn significant money doing what you truly love!
If you know exactly what you want to do in life and are thrilled with the career path you’re on, you probably won’t benefit much from the career counseling services I offer.
But, if you’re feeling unfulfilled in your current position… If you’ve been laid off, or are afraid you might be… Or if you want to explore your options and objectively reassess your present situation and the possibilities available… Contact me at 510-486-1188 or firstname.lastname@example.org and schedule an initial consultation. You have absolutely nothing to lose and a whole lifetime to gain!
