New Year, New Job?
A New Year has begun and thoughts turn to what the next twelve months has in store. The economic climate is uncertain for many. Very often, the fist barrier to overcome is our own perception of what we can do. There are jobs available, just not necessarily those many of us may be looking for, nor which we may believe we are suited for either.
Good People’s experience is that very often our perception of ourselves and what we can offer can be misplaced. We know this due to our careers transition service, which supports those looking for work and people facing redundancy. It extends beyond the usual outplacement support such as CV writing and interview skills.
We help candidates to convey their individual strengths and use fresh approaches. We also combine communication and self-branding skills into our work (which can take into consideration their LinkedIn or Facebook and Twitter profiles). We have worked extensively across many sectors and understand the issues that those seeking new forms of employment will face. Our service is aimed at:
•Job seekers or those facing redundancy.
•People who wish to change direction in their career.
•People at a cross-roads in their life.
It guides those we work with through everything they need to know to be effective in their job search, whilst providing a range of supporting material they can dip into when the need arises. A key element of our service is providing compelling personal feedback about candidate’s working strengths through the use of psychometric profiling.
The service provides tools to ensure the person is an attractive applicant. It gives candidates help at every stage of the job search – from writing a powerful CV and covering letter, how to work with job boards and agencies, and how to get the most out of online networking to telephone and interview techniques.
Features of our services include:
ïªCV builder with support for multiple CVs
ïªInterview role-play and practice tools
ïªA personalised report providing compelling personal feedback about candidate’s working strengths and useful careers guidance
ïªThe positioning of themselves as an attractive candidate through effective CV creation, a strong covering letter and sound interview techniques
ïªAccess to current local and national vacancies
ïªEvaluation of transferable skills
The key to finding a job in the current market is a high job seeking rate. With so many applicants chasing each vacancy, candidates need an organised, methodical and effective approach to searching for a job. They will also need confidence in themselves.
