Looking for work can be daunting, frustrating and exhausting. It does not have to be that way. With the help of a Career Coach, you can shorten the life-cycle of your career search. In today’s world, it has been proven that submitting a resume online is not the most effective way to look for a job. You must approach a job search systematically and with a model. The first step is to take inventory of your values, interests, strengths, personality, and ambitions. This will guide you in exploring options and research industries and occupational functions. The second step is to create a brand that represents you. This would then be reflected in your resume, LinkedIn profile, cover letter, your value proposition, and any other document. Based on your interests you might decide that you need further education or seek out the type of work environment you would thrive in. Sometimes, we’re just not sure about the career we want to pursue. This is where informational interviews would be beneficial in exploring different career options. How would you go about it? Networking is a very effective way to uncover hidden job opportunities. As the cliché goes, “looking for a job, is a full-time job” but it doesn’t have to be a sixty hour a week job. With guidance, a step-by-step program customized to your needs, your job search can be a self-discovering, learning, and rewarding experience.
