Job Search and Job Applications

Conducting an effective job search and writing effective job applications requires both a strategy and a plan. Your strategy and plan need to align your values, strengths, motivations and aspirations with the jobs that are of interest to you. 

During a 90-minute coaching session Sue will enable you to create your job search and application strategy and plan. You will receive a comprehensive checklist to help you get started.

CV & Cover Letter Writing & Review and LinkedIn Profile Review

Your CV is your very own personal brochure; together with a well-written cover letter, your CV should convince an employer to invite you to an interview. Whether you need a total makeover or a review of your CV or cover letter(s) Sue can assist you by:

  • enabling you to write your chronological, contractor and/or academic CV from scratch 
  • reviewing your CV and cover letter focusing on the job(s) you intend to apply for
  • enabling you to write a master CV and master cover letter that will save you time and effort each and every time you apply for a job

Your LinkedIn profile will also be reviewed

Interview Skills & Preparation

Congratulations! You have been invited to attend an interview. All your hard work preparing your application has paid off; you have successfully convinced the employer that you have the experience and skills they are seeking.

During the interview the employer will be looking for evidence that you are capable of doing the job and that you will be a good fit with the organisation culture. With this at the forefront of your mind, your next step is to thoroughly prepare for the interview; preparation will increase your confidence and your chances of being offered the job.

I encourage you however to STOP! and take time to assess and negotiate the job offer.
