Effective Job Search Strategies

Are you having success with your current job search techniques?  If not, read on…

Clear Focus:  Many job seekers try to be “all things to all people” creating a confusing image for employers.  We help clarify your focus, develop a list of target companies, an “elevator speech” and search plan.   These tools will accelerate your job search and maximize your ability to find a position that meets your needs.

Networking:   Are you spending more than 25% of your job search time applying to positions on-line?   If so, you are wasting your valuable time.    Only 5-15% of job seekers actually find jobs through on-line job boards, while 65-85% find jobs through some form of networking.   We offer a practical and proven approach to networking that gets results.

Interview Preparation: Many job seekers spend hours polishing their resumes, but little time preparing for interviews.  A strong resume gets you in the door, but your interview closes the deal.  Our interview preparation will allow you to shine as you interview with confidence.  Describe your accomplishments in 60 seconds or less, articulate your strengths and present a strong case for why you are the best candidate for the job!  We help you develop good answers for difficult questions and coach you on your interview skills until you’re confident you can ace the interview.

Salary Research & Negotiation:  How much are you worth in today’s market?   What is the average salary for your type of position?   Many people leave thousands of dollars on the table because they don’t know what they are worth.    Or, they assume that they will have to take a pay cut in this down economy.    Get a realistic assessment of your situation and help getting the best offer you can.
