This is where career coaching comes in- as a coach my only agenda is you and what will help you be fulfilled. Coaching provides a safe place for you to think through all the possibilities and make sense of all the options, so whatever route you end up taking, you have confidence that it’s the right one for you. I don’t have the answers – but I can help you find yours! Our coaching sessions will help provide clarity as you work out what’s really important for your future and how to achieve it, plus support and accountability as you work towards it. Sessions fees are between £65 and £75 an hour depending on the package chosen, but it costs nothing to enquire! What’s your future worth??
This session will help you to verbalise your strengths and skills and learn your ‘key markers’ so you can focus your job search better. We’ll look at how to do a ‘master CV’ but also how to customise your CV and how to make the most of your skills and experience for particular job roles. Includes a professionally laid out CV completed after the session (you will need to supply an electronic draft) or for a CV from scratch please add £25.
Application Forms and Personal Statements
Just about every person I’ve met dreads that ‘personal statement’ space! Well I love the challenge! I’ve got 15 years experience of reading personal statements and helping people write them to best advantage! This is a really practical session – bring along one or more real application forms to work through or I’ll find you some to practice on. I’ll help you understand how an employer reads an application and show you how to best present your skills and experience and apply them to a particular job.
Interview preparation and practice
Another really practical session from an experienced interviewer. Practice answering the questions you don’t want to; learn how to tell your story and turn an interview into a conversation. How to look confident, present yourself to best advantage and connect with your interviewers. This can be usefully combined with presentation practice.
Going for a higher level interview? Work on that all important presentation with an experienced professional. Get friendly but professional feedback and practical help with screen tools, body language, voice, how to manage questions etc. Help with PowerPoint, Prezi etc.
Got an idea that won’t keep quiet?? You don’t know if it’s brilliant or crazy, but it won’t go away – sometimes you can feel you’re going round in circles thinking through all the pros and cons ..! Come for a Brainstormer session! I love talking to people about their business ideas, especially helping solopreneurs get started, and I’m good at making sense of even vague ideas! I will listen, take you seriously, encourage you, help you get clarity and plan workable goals.
