Career Strategy Coaching
Your career is more than a series of jobs. It’s the path you chart across your professional life to achieve your personal goals. Our career strategy coaching helps you identify and work toward achieving those goals.
Where will your work experience take you?
The road into the future is carved by your own decisions from the choices presented to you. Choosing a career path is not always easy and can happen multiple times in a person’s working life. After all, no one knows what opportunities and challenges await us in the future. An experienced career coach helps you choose a fulfilling and rewarding path and chart your way forward.
You career strategy should …
Set achievable goals
Identify worthy skills to obtain
Build upon successful milestones
YES Career Coach Michael Akbar shows you how to chart the best course for yourself. That includes finding the best available opportunities. More than 1/3 of jobs are never listed on job boards, so you need to know where else to look.
Building and maintaining a network of professional contacts helps you find great jobs and achieve success. In your network, you want more than names and contact info. You want network partners who will be strong advocates for you.
Finding and applying for new jobs is only the first step. Once you’ve landed the interview, you may face strong competition. Our Interview Aikido™ method teaches you to guide the conversation to your best advantage.
Aikido is the martial art that teaches you to use an opponent’s strength against him. In traditional interviews, the applicant is the submissive partner in the conversation. Using Interview Aikido™, you become a full partner in the conversation, interviewing the interviewer.
Setting the right course for your career begins with a simple assessment we call the “Workplace Development Report.” You and your coach work together to develop the best goals for your growth. These goals will reflect who you are and where you want to go instead of being someone else’s pre-fabricated career path.
Your career strategy coach helps you create a plan specifically for you.
You’ll develop the skills you need to navigate job opportunities and interviews. We call that your “inner game.” You’ll learn how to focus on the destination you’ve chosen and develop strategies to get there.
We’ll teach you step by step how to build a professional network to help you advance toward your goals.
And we’ll provide you with the tools you need to move forward on your path—including a cover letter, resume, and LinkedIn profile. A LinkedIn headshot, our proprietary Interview Aikido™ training, and an offer guarantee are included in most of the coaching packages.
You can email us here and then schedule yourself for a free, 30-minute Career Success Consultation—or contact us by phone between 8 and 6:30 to set it up.
