One Client, One Coach, One Goal

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking down your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.

Job Search Planning for 2016

There’s nothing like a new year to make time refresh your career planning. How can you make 2016 a successful job search year?

Set Goals

Setting achievable goals in one of the most important parts of job search planning.  I like to use S.M.A.R.T. goal planning for my business which is easily applied to job search.  Think in terms of Specific, Measureable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely goals!

Have a clear ultimate goal of where you want to end up, whether that is an industry, a company, or a location.  If you only have a vague idea now, think about what is most important to you.

What are your interests? What do you do well? Where do you want to live?  Is having the flexibility to spend time with your family important or do you want a career you can dedicate your time to? Break up your ultimate goal into smaller, attainable goals. Set a number of applications to send in each month or quarter.  Find more great tips for job search planning in 206 here!

What Clients are Saying:

"I'm so glad I decided that my career was worth it. Looking for a job is hard work at a very stressful time in your life, but having Linda as a Career Coach kept the process focused and positive. She was well prepared for our meetings, had a specific agenda and made each session time well spent. My one big regret was that I spent the first six months thinking I could do it myself."

"A career search is really many parts – it’s tactical, it’s emotional, it’s focused, and it’s personal. You addressed all of those things with such a positive, engaging, and skillful manner that I knew very quickly that success was all but guaranteed – as you strive for that yourself and in turn push your clients to achieve it. Your process and diligence for facilitating a successful search was brilliant! We went down a set path together, yet one that you were flexible with and catered to me specifically, and the results were quantifiable each step of the way."
