Career mentoring

Career mentoringDoes your career NEED A CHANGE OF direction?

Few careers are linear, and very few people are totally sure – all the time – of the direction they want to go in. In fact many people are developing “portfolio careers”.

Maybe you are just finishing education, or you are wishing to return to employment after freelancing, parenting, or ill health. Sometimes your career is steered onto a new path by redundancy. You may in fact feel that you want and need a career change but how sure where or how you get there.

Whatever the reason, a crossroads needn’t be a crisis. In fact, it can be a positive development. We spend a third of our time at work, so it’s important to make sure you are in a meaningful and enjoyable role.

Drawing on my long experience in recruiting for some of the world’s biggest brands, I can help you best prepare yourself at any junction in your career journey, with:

  • Exploration and discovery of your values, aligning them to work
  • Advice about skills development
  • Making the right and most effective job applications
  • Creating or evolving your CV to perfectly reflect you, your skills and experience
  • Understanding the jobs market, your value in it, and the opportunities that are available to you
  • Your personal branding on social and digital from LinkedIn to Instagram
  • Interview skills – so that you can be confident in interview both on the phone and face to face
  • Gaining feedback and making the most of this to inform future career choices
  • When you do secure that job, negotiating the job offer
