How a Coach Can Help You Land the Right Job

 

50% of people are looking for a new job at any given moment. That’s a pretty darn big number and it makes today’s job search environment a bit wild. The rules of finding a job 10 years ago don’t really apply today.

Today, the people who do their homework, focus their efforts, and prepare are the ones who get ahead. They are the ones who start their search early (long before they “need” to leave their current role). They seek opportunities outside their comfort zones and experiment with their approach until they find one that works for them.

This means doing research, learning as much as possible about the industry, company, and role, and having a strong awareness when it comes to connecting your value with the goals of the company and team looking to fill the role.

To get this information, you absolutely have to build and tap your network. According to some experts, as many as 70% to 80% of available jobs are never even posted.

We recommend partnering with a coach to (1) focus your efforts (2) develop a network in a way that works for you and (3) create a job search strategy that keeps you feeling motivated.

We’re a coaching company but there are plenty of other coaches out there if we’re not your cup of tea. The takeaway here is that you simply don’t have to do it alone and you don’t have to guess your way through this process.

Looking for a new job can be one of the most invigorating and exciting periods of your career. It’s a massive opportunity to explore options for the next stage of your career.

If you’re not feeling quite as excited as we are about looking for a new job, you might consider partnering with a coach.

Partnering with a coach is great for:

  • Accountability: You’ll have someone checking in with you every week to see how things are going and help you overcome any obstacles.

  • Focus: Sometimes a job search has a tendency to get away from us. Your coach will help you narrow your search so you can tailor your story, customize your resume and cover letter, and tailor your LinkedIn profile.

  • Boosting Confidence: Sometimes the job search can hit your confidence more than we ever expected. Your coach will help you separate feelings from reality and make objective decisions in the right direction. They believe in you and will cheer you along!

  • Building a Strategy: Our coaches have plenty of recruiting experience and have been on both sides of the table you’re currently sitting at. We know what it’s like to look for a job and we know what it’s like to flip through thousands of resumes and decide who to speak with.

  • Identifying Blindspots: We help you think outside the box, identify your skills and strengths, and create a plan for any gaps. Your coach is going to be honest and straight forward with you. Our only goal is to help you find the RIGHT job that aligns with your goals, values, and personality.
