Getting Work

Looking for a job is lonely, its stressful, it brings up emotions you would rather not. It eats at self belief and optimism and makes you doubt yourself. Ask yourself what is the ONE think stopping you.  Get coaching in this ONE thing. Pare back your EFFORTS so you are doing the most important and most necessary things to succeed. Too many times I see clients shooting applications and CVs off in great numbers in the hope of securing an interview. They wonder why they don’t get one and then they repeat the same pattern again. STOP this! Think about the actions that are most relevant and ensure the most success.

Getting Better Work

This is for those who find themselves in a "rut", dealing with dead end or badly paid jobs or with personnel you would rather not be around.

A Gallup poll identified:

  • up to 85% of employees worldwide are disengaged with their work 
  • 12% of employees leave their jobs because of money
  • 58% trust strangers more than there own boss
  • 53% of Americans are unhappy at work

 

Pick any statistic on work satisfaction and there is always going to be those who cannot stand where they work.  Nevertheless moving job is stressful and most would prefer not to do it if possible.  This is why people put up with so much that they do not like.  There is a huge fear of the unknown.

This coaching is not simply to help you move employer.  Sometimes you repeat patterns in employers which may put you in the same position in the future.  It might just be the time to address behaviours that are not serving you.  There may be a lot more at stake and some reflection is needed. 

Coaching

  • Career to date and how this is fitting into your career goal for yourself.  What is this goal?
  • Personal traits and talents-what you are good at*
  • Your actual current job, what you do, what you are paid, who you work with, what your values and beliefs are and are they being honored
  • Conflict at work, identifying, counteracting it and avoiding it
  • Deciding to stay or go
  • Creating an action plan that is yours and one which you can identify with
  • Preparing the springboard: CV preparation, presentation, effective communication and networking
  • Carrying out the plan.  Begin accountable and gaining momentum

CV Focus

Effective CV:

Your CV is the key you use to open the different career doors you want to go through. Wrong size, shape or makeup of the key keeps you outside those doors. I have seen many many CVs which are not clear, too long, badly structured and do not convey the ESSENCE and VALUE of a person. The CV is an extension of your “pitch” and should be something that you are proud of, confident in discussing and know it intimately.  It supports you in the interview and keeps you on track by showcasing your talents and focusing your thoughts.

Coaching/Mentoring

  • Clear “profile” or personal statement reflecting your values, skills, attitude, education and experience
  • Overhaul of language and structure for maximum impact to sell yourself
  • Bringing your past with you (what an employer/recruitment consultant/in company recruiter looks for)
  • Get length and “story” correct (including dealing with CV gaps, redundancy, illness, dismissal, stress leave)
  • Carrying out the plan.  Using the CV
  • Other issues (Cover letters, different CV versions, Linkedin etc.)
