Recently I’ve been informally mentoring candidates in their job search and I really enjoy working one on one with people as they try to figure out the next phase of their career. I’ve worked across the range of experience from recent college grads to Senior level candidates. Looking for work can be a full-time job with little feedback. Creating a plan and working the plan DOES net results!
A thorough job search involves market research, resume tweaking, LinkedIn profile consultation and traditional “in person” networking. With the advent of everything online, the tried and true methods still work! Target your prospect companies, tailor a well written note and pickup the phone to make connections.
Once an interview is obtained, then the real work begins. Prepping for a phone or in person interview requires you to know the culture of the company. Are they formal or casual? Do they use behavioral based interviewing techniques? Mock interviews allow you to practice, make mistakes and lean into the best response with immediate feedback. Once an offer is obtained, you aren’t done yet, it’s time to negotiate. Eileen offers many years of corporate recruiting expertise to make sure you achieve the offer you are worth.
If you’re seeking a career shift, consider having someone in your corner to provide guidance and feedback as you begin your job search journey.
