In the modern, fast-paced business environment, many companies find themselves having to change at an alarming rate. And, an interim manager may be just the solution they need.
Oftentimes people suddenly find themselves between jobs and in career transition without having a fair chance to evaluate sources of assistance as they struggle to get back into the labor force. That’s why it’s wise to be educated before you’re in this position.
In this post, you’ll learn about four types of career coaching so you’ll know exactly which one fits you best if you’re ever in need.
Companies fill more jobs through referrals than from job boards. How do you think you get referred? It’s all about networking. To get you started, we’ve compiled a list of 10 types of people to connect with during your job search.
What is your career path in 2020? In this post, we have four steps to help you walk on it confidently and get to your destination quicker.
These Top 8 steps will significantly increase your chances of landing the right job in the new year:
1) Create your professional objective.
The first step in the job-search process is to determine your ideal position. Being able to concisely define and articulate your desired job description makes it easier to plan and prioritize your search. Even more important, it also helps others understand how they can help you. Essentially you must describing your ideal job and be as specific as possible!
In over 25 years as an Executive Career Transition Coach and Executive Search Recruiter, I have never seen hiring as robust and abundant as it is right now for the senior business leader across the world. Yes, there are exceptions but generally hiring and landing is faster. Leaders and those who aspire to be business leaders are securing some jobs that may have been out of reach before. Are you ambitious, seeking new challenges? If so, now is the time to launch an aggressive job search. You won’t be disappointed!
These are NOT the MOST important questions for you to ask during every job interview and in every interaction with an employer, but they are essential to your success in your job search. Gather the information you need about each employer’s hiring process so you can plan your activities, gauge your chances at landing the job, and understand how things are progressing (or not). Don’t assume all employers use the hiring same process — they definitely don’t! And, while some employers will tell you about their process, many will forget or just not keep you informed.
Every company knows WHAT they do, some companies know HOW they do what they do, but few know WHY their organization exists. Certainly there have been times when we all focus on HOW or WHAT because customers take us there or you allow yourselves to be stuck there. Simon Sinek helps you step back and realize what motivates us and what is behind the way we think, how we feel and what makes us respond.
IMHO, this is best 18 minutes you could spend with your leadership team, organization and/or yourself. Invest in yourself so you can invest in others! How are we communicating and what are the conversations we are having? Are we communicating the “what” or the “why”? Are we inspiring leaders?
