Job Search CoachingBe The Candidate Of Choice
Job hunting today requires a diversified approach to help you advance successfully at each stage of the process and become the clear candidate of choice.
Networking, storytelling, and negotiating are all critical elements to not just finding a job, but winning the job you want.
And to gain the competitive advantage, you must have marketing tools that reflect your unique story and skill set.
Job search coaching services include resume revision, interview preparation and negotiation, and job search tool development. Some clients only need help with preparing for an interview or updating a resume, while others need more time and tools to yield better results.
