We will walk you through the 15 most crucial steps you need to take to build momentum for your career and land meaningful jobs.
Why should I do it?
Being intentional and well-prepared makes a huge difference in how fast you will find your next job, and how relevant that job will be to your career goals. Even in a tight job market, this program can make a difference between being among the top candidates and finding yourself at the back of the line.
Who is this for?
This program is suitable for people interested in pursuing a successful career, either they are just starting or are seasoned professionals.
It all starts with articulating what you want to do and achieve in your career. This focus will be the compass of your career pursuit.
It is about connecting your present with your aspirations, bridging the gap between where you are now and where you want to go.
Individual development plan
This program will help you be intentional and proactive with your career, creating your own plan towards what you want to achieve. By the end of the program, you will be equipped with a specific individualized plan that will inspire you to take account and stay accountable towards realizing your career aspirations.
Career Narrative will help you uncover your career stories, make new connections that give a new perspective to your career narrative, and craft a unified story that resonates with your personal career vision.
This program will give you the opportunity to craft your ideal role, introducing you to the notion and practice of “job crafting” and helping you articulate the characteristics of the role that will help you thrive.
Personal Branding is about what you stand for and what perception and experience others have off you. This program will help you take control of your own personal brand, intentionally designing and honoring it.
Your resume is one of the most important documents in your career. It does the heavy lifting of representing you and can make the difference between landing job interviews or not.
LinkedIn for your career
LinkedIn is the mainstream social network for professional networking, useful across many industries and professions. A solid LinkedIn presence can amplify your personal brand and persuade recruiters you are the one they are looking for.
The Cover Letter program will equip you with the ability to write a relatable and persuasive cover letter, leveraging this (often overlooked and misunderstood) document for building your case in the eyes and mind of a recruiter.
This program will help you craft your elevator pitch so that when you meet someone, that person understands who you are, what you do and how you are relevant to them, scoring a follow-up engagement.
This program will help you get into the driver’s seat of your own job search activity and become an active and intentional job searcher who creates his or her own opportunities.
Landing a job interview is the turning point of your job search; now the stakes are higher than ever. Connect with and persuade the recruiters that you are the one they have been looking for.
Job offer evaluation
Accepting a job offer is one of the most important decisions you will make in your life, as it sets the stage for your future. This program will help you create a solid and personalized framework to help you evaluate the job offers you get, so you can make the right decisions.
Our decision-making ability is bound by the quality of our thinking. However, most of the time we are victims of biases that go unnoticed, which – however – have an immediate and catalytic impact on the way we make decisions. This program will introduce attendees to some of the most common biases that affect our decisions, equipping them with the skills to improve their career decision-making.
Career resilience and growth mindset
Pursuing your career may be a long and psychological draining process. Being resilient and adopting a growth mindset might mean the difference between giving up and building a successful career.
