In my last article I shared that I have three Career Coaching packages to choose from based on what your needs are as a job seeker. If you are ready to find that ideal position that checks all the boxes on your wish list, then my Landing Your Dream Job Package is the one for you.
This comprehensive package provides all the tools and support you need to plan and implement an effective job search. With coaching you will:
- Gain clarity on your ideal job, career direction, desired company, and work environment
- Develop a targeted resume and LinkedIn Profile that aligns with your career goals
- Learn how to leverage your network to generate job leads
- Practice interviewing and receive feedback, coaching and support
- Create a plan for the first 30 days of your job search
Additionally, I’ll provide guidance through the offer process and negotiations so you can get what you want, and I’ll help you create an effective 30-day onboarding plan for a successful transition.
Here’s an example of how one of my clients landed her Dream Job with this package.
My client was a pharmaceutical exec with a nursing background and nursing degree who had been out of the workforce for 10 years raising her family. She was ready to search for a new opportunity and get back to work but was struggling to get started. She was concerned about the career gap and wasn’t sure whether to go back into pharma or pursue a nursing career.
We started our work together with an assessment of her experience and skills to identify her unique qualifications and map those to several possible opportunities. We then worked on creating new personal marketing tools for her – an updated resume and a more professional LinkedIn Profile. I coached her on trends in the recruitment process and changes in the work environment. Through some “homework” exercises, I helped her think through how she could best combine and leverage her skills and experience from her two prior careers to stand out to a potential employer. By encouraging self-reflection and helping her recognize strengths she may have overlooked, I was able to build her confidence level for the job search journey. Although she initially wanted a corporate job, after working with me she decided to return to her nursing career because it would offer her the flexibility that she needed. I helped her gain clarity on which path to pursue first, and we also came up with a back-up plan in case things didn’t work out. She’s now been happily employed as an IVF nurse for several years.
Another advantage of working with a coach and taking the time to assess your skills, experience and what you want in terms of work, environment, culture, etc., is that you might find that your Dream Job isn’t somewhere else, but where you are – just in a different department or branch. That’s what happened to another one of my clients who really liked the company but wasn’t feeling fulfilled in his job. After we went through the various components of the program, he decided to look internally at opportunities with his current employer. As a result of the coaching program, he now has more confidence in his background, skills, and experience.
