How? By providing practical and structured guidance and support while you move through this challenging period.
Get back on track and immediately start moving forward in your job search.
Even just enrolling in the course and viewing the course curriculum will help! The course is structured in a way that provides you with a step-by-step approach to taking those actions that will help you to move forward towards getting a new job.
Identify your support network.
We help you figure out how to talk to other people about your redundancy, and identify those individuals who are (and aren’t!) likely to become part of your support network while you find new opportunities.
Effectively deal with the 'emotional roller coaster' often associated with a redundancy.
We provide you with strategies for better understanding your emotions, and the impact these can have on your decisions, behaviour, and relationships with others. Successfully managing your emotions can make a BIG difference when it comes to effectively moving forward.
Get a better understanding of your current financial situation.
You’ll be taken through a quick and simple exercise that helps you to understand your current financial situation – and what this might mean for your goals when looking for a new job. This process also helps you to regain a sense of control.
Identify and explore different alternatives and opportunities.
We provide you with some guidance and ‘food for thought’ on identifying what exactly you are looking for, and the kinds of roles, companies and environments that are most likely to be a good ‘fit’ for you. This helps you to avoid wasting time and energy chasing the wrong jobs (something we’ve learned from experience!)
Uncover your unique skills, capabilities and strengths.
We help you to get clear on what YOU have to offer to potential employers, using exercises and strategies designed to uncover your unique achievements, capabilities, and strengths. You can then use this information when writing your resume and LinkedIn profile, applying for jobs, and attending interviews.
Set up a great LinkedIn profile.
You’ll also learn how to set up your LinkedIn profile from ‘scratch’ if you don’t have one already. You’ll also learn some strategies for optimising the effectiveness of your LinkedIn profile, using LinkedIn to connect to others and build credibility, and using LinkedIn effectively as a job search tool.
Prepare for and CONFIDENTLY handle job interviews.
You will learn how to most effectively prepare yourself for job interviews, along with some comprehensive advice on how to respond to the different types of interview questions you might encounter.
Work effectively with recruiters.
You will learn strategies for more successfully working with recruiters, including tips from recruiters themselves on preparing your resume and presenting as a good candidate for their clients.
Create a professional, well-written and compelling resume.
The course includes a section dedicated entirely to writing or updating your resume using up-to-date, best practice principles. You will learn practical tips and strategies for making sure that your resume includes appropriate “keywords”, and is more likely to be reviewed by recruiters and employers.
Analyse job advertisements and write effective job application and cover letters.
You’ll learn how to ‘read between the lines’ when looking at job advertisements, and figure out what the recruiter or employer really seems to want. In turn, this will help you to get past the screening process by writing more targeted and compelling job applications.
Develop a comprehensive job search strategy.
You will learn a range of different job search techniques, including those that help you to tap into the ‘hidden’ job market. We talk about networking, LinkedIn, job search engines, geographical searches, and much more.
Choose and effectively manage your referees.
The course includes guidance and advice on avoiding the common mistakes people typically make when providing information about their referees, and strategies for making the most of the referee checking process.
Prepare for "behavioural" interviews.
In our experience, most people really ‘bomb out’ at behavioural interviews! We help you to understand what behavioural interviews are all about, and teach you comprehensive strategies for preparing for these. You will have the benefit of some ‘insider’ knowledge on this topic, with one of the course instructors regularly conducting and training organisations in behavioural interviewing techniques.
