Where You Thrive
Defining your job target is the goal of this module. With self-awareness tools, you can reveal your gifts and talents and receive advice on where those can be applied in the workplace. This information prepares you to consider new approaches to move towards something you are passionate about. Personalized sessions support you in making the right decisions and addressing any unique roadblocks.
Making a good first impression is very important in a new job search. Many years of experience have gone into developing the best quality pieces for you to show your skills that will impress the reader. You will feel confident with your new marketing documents, including a beautifully crafted resume, letter of interest, references page, and interview thank you note, to use as appropriate.
Working in any industry requires a degree of networking. Joining an organization and becoming active is an important step to building your network and gaining referrals.
LinkedIn is another platform to join online groups to explore opportunities and trends. Not only can you explore organizations where your skills might be valuable, but your profile will appear in searches for individuals with your experience and skill set. As a Certified Online Profile Expert, Melanie can enhance your LinkedIn profile to gain visibility and connections.
Time to Shine
You want the job, and there are several things you can do to impress in your interview so that you are memorable and considered the best candidate for the job. A practice session, coaching you on answering the primary questions that most companies use (Tell me about yourself …, Your greatest weakness?
