    A Proven Way to Make a Successful Career Change | Case Study

    A Proven Way to Make a Successful Career Change | Case Study

    Ever wonder how to change careers?
    Meet Tracey.
    She was at her new job in her new career for a short while when she and I connected on this. She couldn’t wait to tell me about it.
    Before I turn you loose on the valuable, DOZENS of lessons she shares, let me set the table for you on her challenges…
    She’s in the early stages of her professional life and lives in New York in the US.
    She had umpteen challenges while trying to change not only jobs, but careers.
    Here are just a few of her issues, for editorial purposes, I think will hit home:
    Big career change: She was a performance artist and fitness trainer and wanted to support an ESG organization in an analytical capacity.
    No experience in the new career: She had virtually no hands-on experience related to these types of organizations or working in the kinds of roles she was interested in pursuing.
    "Wrong" education: While educated, her studies didn't align to the change she wanted to make, so she needed to quickly supplement her resume with certifications and courses.
    Narrative issues: During her networking, many people told her, "I don't get your background. I'm not sure how you'll fit." So, she needed to get her storytelling in order and “feed the funnel!”
    So? What did she do about it?
    Listen to today’s podcast as she shares exactly how she planned for and approached it, what she did, and what transpired.
    All I can say is, “Tracey, your table is ready.”

    How to Make Your Résumé Standout in 2023!

    How to Make Your Résumé Standout in 2023!

    It’s January, which translates to high recruitment season. That means employers are interviewing candidates like crazy.
    Even so, it’s not exactly like shooting fish in a barrel if your résumé isn’t up to snuff.
    No matter what month or year it is, you need to put a killer résumé together to not only show potential employers the value you can contribute, but also set the best table for yourself when you get into the interview.
    What do I always say?
    “Whenever you set out to do something, plan to win.”
    Winning in this case means you’re going to get the interview AND job offer.
    The problem is most job candidates don’t think this many moves down the pipe.
    They hope for an interview.
    They hope they’ll do well when they get into the interview.
    They don’t concentrate on planting all the seeds throughout the entire interviewing process to ensure they have the most leverage when they actually receive the job offer.
    Well, today, you’re in luck because I’ve got a spectrum of goodies that cover how to make your résumé standout by putting in it exactly what employers want to know.
    Because I’m so confident they want to know this, I’m certain they’ll ask you about it in the interview.
    That’s why I’m not only going to show you what goes into the résumé as it relates to your bullet points, but also how to turn those bullets into interview stories.
    I even have a case study in there for you!
    Join me for today’s podcast how to make your résumé stand out and interview stories shine in 2023!

    Job Search Tips for the New Year

    Job Search Tips for the New Year

    January is a great, if not the best, time to search for a new job.
    It just is. Why?
    Employers are filled with new hope, new budgets, new directives and a bunch of other "news."
    Even if this isn’t technically the start of their new fiscal year, they know it’s the time of year employees take stock. They know the best employees will be mobile, so they want to hire those best employees.
    They also pray their best employees don’t go all mobile on them…as in create unplanned vacancies!
    I’ve been working for 35 years as an executive in small and large companies, a business owner, executive recruiter, and career coach.
    A little street cred I’d hope you’d say…
    …and I’d say, every year I’ve worked, I watch history repeat itself as employers reflect, think, rethink, plan, and scale.
    This should matter to you whether you’re looking for a new job or not!
    And, you should use this opportunity to position yourself advantageously.
    What exactly do you need to do?
    It’s in today’s podcast on Job Search Tips for the New Year. I give you a behind-the-scenes take on what this looks like inside organizations and the changes to make to your approach to significantly increase your odds of success!
