How can I move beyond job search sites
to find my perfect job?
Most people are going to end up looking for a job at some point in their life. It's either voluntary or involuntary.
My job search coaching program is based on my professional career before I became a coach - in marketing and communications. There are a million definitions of marketing, but for me, simple is best: marketing is the art and science of convincing someone that your product or service is the only possible choice they should make. Make no mistake: you are that product.
I've laid out the steps I generally take a client through. I say "generally" because I won't clobber you over the head with a particular step if you don't need it. The way I see it, if you are not getting job offers (the last step in my program) then we need to evaluate every step before it. How are you doing in the interview stage? If you are not convincing the employer that you are the only candidate for the job, then you won't get the job offer.
If I look at your resume and it blows me away, I am not going to focus much of our time at all on fixing it. I assume you've given careful thought to your goals (the first step) and your professional brand - otherwise, you could not have created such a powerful resume. So I take you where you are and help you build upon your success.
My experience tells me that most job seekers just start working on their resume and post it everywhere, on any job search site they can find. An effective job search starts with understanding your goal for your job search and a bit of self-reflection.
