In a challenging job market there are a number of things you can do to stand out in the crowd.
Are you looking for a career coach?
I have been providing career guidance and support for many years. I’ve written resumes and edited resumes. I’ve written cover letters and edited cover letters. I’ve written applicant letters of recommendation and recommended people apply for certain positions. I’ve conducted public images and interview preparation sessions. I’m also the author of Get Hired Toolbox: 30 Ways to Land the Job of Your Dreams ebook. Despite all that, I don’t necessarily consider myself a career coach.
What exactly is a career coach?
The field of career coaching is vast. Some people think that a career coach simply writes a good resume but that is a resume writer. Other people think that a career coach finds you a job but that is the role of a head hunter. A career coach not only helps clients discover their strengths and interests but also uncovers any potential blocks or potential employment issues. A career coach understands that landing the job of your dreams involves setting clear goals and action steps, utilizing nontraditional resources, making wise decisions, and building a professional brand that includes a strong social media presence.
Personal development is a key component is job satisfaction and career advancement. A career coach will help you build a solid professional foundation, avoid costly mistakes, and target your job search to positions that match your skills and interests. With a specialization in career planning and success for students, young professionals, women, and adults switching careers, I help people to find and achieve their career dreams. Through my Get Hired Workshop and Get Hired Strategy Session, am able to help individuals map out their specific career path. Am I a career coach? Hmm… sure looks like it doesn’t it? I like to think of myself as a Life Strategist for who careers is one of the life areas in which I assist clients.
Here are three employment quick tips:
- Always tailor your resume to the position you are applying for
- Carefully proofread your resume for spelling and grammatical errors
- Never complete an employment application in a color other than blue or black
