When applying for a job you need more than just to meet the criteria of that role to become relevant.  If you and 300 other people are a good match how do you make yourself stand out?  How do you convince an employer of your worth above all the other candidates?  That is where a professional Careers Adviser comes in.  When it comes to CV writing you need someone who can extract the qualities you take for granted and champion you.  Promoting yourself in a competitive market requires an ability to sell yourself and a creative flare.

Career Choice and Change

 

Maybe you have been out of the work force for some time, been made redundant, suffered a job loss or maybe you are looking for a career change and have no idea what you want to do.  As a professional Careers Adviser I can help you discover what will work for you personally, unlock your skill set and provide aids to make a final decision.  We will look at all the practical aspects of your personal situation and challenge barriers that may be preventing you from moving forward.  Discovering your passion is the key to a successful happy life.

Interview Skills and Rapport

 

Would you like to know how to build a good rapport with anyone?  We are all meant to be different so how do you appeal to an interviewer who you have never met before?  Self-awareness, establishing common ground, good communication skills, genuine interest and body language all play a part.  If you can present a' likeable' factor, and an interviewer warms to your personality, then all other things being equal you will go to the top of the list.  Interviewers are human beings too and you will not only be assessed on your experience and credentials but whether you are a good fit for the culture of their organisation.
