CAREER TRANSITION AND RECRUITMENT
The proactive, one step ahead
Today’s post-pandemic global climate, gig economies and labour market fluidity have made job-seeking more cut-throat than ever. The messages you need to craft are strategic and rhetorical. They need to be assertive and targeted. Your approach to this journey is crucial.
Bespoke coaching to you and your target JD will unpack the exact qualities, skills information and drivers that interviewers are looking to box-tick. I have coached over a thousand individuals into roles in finance, banking, law, tech, project management, HR, marketing, creative and more. I am immersed in good-practice sharing with leading recruiters, outplacement providers, HR SIGs and career consultants, and have analysed deeply thousands of job descriptions and CVs. I know how hiring decisions are made.
Leverage your subconscious
Together, we can unravel exactly what to expect. We workshop to mould these into optimal responses to all lines of questioning. You are trained, harnessing techniques from CBT, to tap into your subconscious in the right way at the right time, avoiding mental clutter, to efficiently locate the indicators that demonstrate an exact competence (rather than the cut-out prototypes a textbook coach or website blog will offer you).
It is much more than just regurgitating over-prepared narratives. Nor is it about circumnavigating to fill gaps while trying not to drift off purpose. It is deeply tactical and about your ability to perform live.
Take the interviewer by the hand
It is also about coaxing the interviewer into visualising you already performing the role or delivering on targets. You are building trust.
I have ways to convert anyone from timid grads, to dead-wood mid-lifers to high-calibre executives, into strongly credible and persuasive speakers. But there are no silver bullets. You cannot develop competence by reading a book. Learning to interview optimally occurs through guided practice and guided reflection.
Employability and transition
To boost your employability, I have a gamut of competence building and personal branding development approaches to help you. I undertake a situational analysis of you and your context and your career and its possibilities. I guide you in exploring the labour market, before working on how you appear as both you online and in-person presence, along with recruitment support training, from building a jobsearch strategy to using speculative approaches, to understanding what industry is looking for and how they assess you, to preparing for interview questions and other assessment instruments. All the while, building your confidence and how you project.
As with any cataclysmic change, it is better to be prepared. Struggling for competitive advantage in the labour market is now tougher than ever. I have trained and couched thousands of professionals, managers and executives to generate interview offers and bring them up to speed in getting the roles they want. I have unblocked and enriched communication performance in leaders, the accomplished and the aspiring.
