Play Your Own Game
Make a Great Impression
The ever-changing landscape of job searching and career exploration can feel overwhelming. We’ve created two online strategy courses to support you along your journey.
Stop tinkering with your resume!
When you know how to go in through the side door of a company, keywords and rankings no longer make or break you. Bring the human element back into your job search and access opportunities without little to no competition.
eCourse #1: How to Find Your Dream Career
Create & Implement
a Strategy that Works
Where do most people waste time during a job search? What are the bad behaviors that hold even the most qualified of candidates back? We’ll teach you how to rethink the hiring process, build your strategy right from day one, and save yourself hours of time applying for roles and never hearing back from employers.
If you’ve ever wondered how to identify a recruiter who won’t waste your time, pay special attention to these lessons. You’ll also learn what different employers look for and the secret to side-stepping gatekeepers and making meaningful connections with company insiders.
As you craft your resume, we’ll share the most effective ways to use it, and how to develop your USP (Unique Selling Proposition). We will explore the value of your cover letter and references, as well as what Application Tracking Systems (ATS) are, and how to use them to your advantage.
In business, as in life, it is often “who you know” that matters most. This module takes that old adage one step further, and focuses on how to make meaningful connections, stand out, and be remembered. It also includes conversation starters, and steps on how to connect effectively on LinkedIn.
Updating your profile content is just a small part of leveraging LinkedIn in your job search. Did you know the “Easy Apply” function can work to your disadvantage? We’ll share more about that and how to ensure your web presence aligns with what you’re working to achieve professionally.
eCourse #2: How to Ace the Interview
Prepare for Interviews &
Make Meaningful Connections
This module is a snapshot of everything that will be taught in the course, including specific topics and their corresponding action guides.
We will explore how to arrange interviews, what you can hope to gain from the interview as the job seeker, and what the employer looks to learn about you during their time with you.
This discussion reviews what is important to prepare for the interview other than questions to answer and ask, including what to wear, navigating directions, knowing who will be present during the interview, and more.
This lesson includes valuable information about common questions asked during interviews, as well as guides you through helpful hints on how to answer, questions that should never be asked, and questions the candidate should consider posing to the interviewer.
As part of your post-interview follow-up, we discuss thank you notes, phone calls, references and more.
Once an offer is made to you, there are many things to consider. This module covers how to make this important decision, and includes topics like salary negotiation and how to weigh multiple offers.
This lesson discusses how to move on when you are not extended a job offer after the interview.
