Job Search Training
I have helped people from a variety of backgrounds secure jobs from bus drivers to software developers. I can show you how to maximize your chances of landing an interview.
People can best develop their skills through in-person coaching and continuous feedback. Contact me if you would like to book a private or a group training session on the following topics:
- Cover letter
There are a lot of myths about what to include and exclude on a job application and this is not helping people stand out from the competition. A lot of practices are outdated, especially in fast-changing industries like the marketing and technology fields.
In each training session, we will go through the myths, best practices, hands-on exercises, and examples of real applications that resulted in getting an interview.
By the end of the training sessions, you will have all of the skills you need to customize your applications in your industry to maximize your chances of landing an interview and the job.
If you don’t have the time to research companies and customize your job applications, I can do the tedious work for you and collaborate with you to make sure your applications reflect your personality, skills, and values.
I can write you a stellar:
- Online portfolio
- Cover letter
- LinkedIn profile
Sending quality job applications is a full-time job and I always tell people not to apply to more than three jobs a day. Customizing your applications requires good research and reflection on your most related experience.
I use a less conventional approach to résumés that makes my clients more attractive to employers and their application easy to read.
Competition is fierce and having an online portfolio can be the deal breaker that puts you ahead of the competition. One of my contacts said that his portfolio is what ultimately got him the job because all of his skills were equal to the other candidate. Why talk about your work when you can show it?
