Career Planning and Job Search

Wanting to make a change? Not sure what you want to do?

We motivate you to reflect and re-evaluate your working life and use a structured and focused approach to help you plan your next career move, including investigating options, and determining what is important to you. This can also include understanding yourself better, understanding labour market trends and adjusting to options outside of your comfort zone. We help you to make informed and more confident decisions going forward about what it is you want to or can do and what it is you want to change. 

We take you through the key steps to career planning: 

 

  1. Self awareness - identifying and articulating your values, interests, knowledge, networks, experience, skills, strength, weaknesses, lifestyle goals. This step might involve a career or psychometric assessment. From this self awareness step we can identify career options
     

  2. Market yourself! Will your resume / cover letter or LinkedIn profile get you an interview? Access resume and cover letter templates. Have your resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile reviewed.
     

  3. Networking and approaching the market - Know where and how to look for jobs. Most people get jobs through who they know. Do you know and are you confident to tap into your network? Do you know how to use social media to build your profile and search for jobs?
     

  4. Interview preparation - Know what to do before, during and after an interview. Learn the easiest and best tips for how to handle nerves, typical interview questions and common interview formats.
     

  5. First 90 days - how to conduct yourself when you move into your new job. How to set yourself up for success and set positive expectations.

 
Resume and Cover Letter

Did you know? Your resume is a marketing document, it’s not a place to document all that you have done.

 

Did you know? Your resume alone is often not enough to get you an interview.

 

Are you confident you are presenting yourself in the best possible way? Most people undersell themselves on their resumes and do not make it clear the value they can provide.

 

The job market is highly competitive. Resumes have changed significantly in the past 10 years. Learn the tricks to write and present a winning resume, cover letter or selection criteria that will boost your ability to impress prospective employers and get you job interviews.


We will coach you on how to prepare your resume so that it makes it seem as though the job was written for you. We give you tips on how to read a job advertisement so you know what it is really asking for.


We provide advice on how to optimise your resume to the latest market realities so that you get more interviews or networking invitations.

 
LinkedIn Profile

LinkedIn is a key tool for being found for jobs, networking, finding jobs, and promoting yourself or your business. We coach you on how to create and optimise your LinkedIn profile and also how to use LinkedIn.

 

Did you know? Your LinkedIn profile is not simply the same as your resume published online.

 

We provide you with tips on how to maximise your use and presence on LinkedIn. We help you to feel confident and even be effective when networking and marketing yourself.

 
Interview Preparation

Do your nerves get the better of you in interviews? Do you feel your interview performance lets you down? Have you not gone for a formal interview for a long time?

 

Interviewing has changed significantly even within the past 5 years. Get up to speed and comfortable with modern interview formats and questions.
