Our services fall naturally into the
three major components: Career Guidance, Career Search and Career
Success, and they are outlined below. However, they can be mixed
and matched to meet your specific individual requirements.
You meet with a Coach for about 45 minutes
to review your career to date, your aspirations, your competences,
your strengths , your values and your current commitments. You
are then invited to undertake some questionnaires which provide
information on your Career Anchors, your Disposition, your Working
Style and your preferred Team Role. With all this information
your Coach will produce a 20 to 30 page career report outlining
careers which people with a similar psychological profile as
your self have been successful. Your Coach will also make several
suggestions given your specific situation and make up.
We will conduct comprehensive
psychometric questionnaires designed to assess your
interests, values, team style, personality patterns
and drive to achieve.
Career Assessment & Diagnostic Feedback
These patterns will be explored
with you to explain satisfactions and dissatisfactions,
successes and failures in your career to date and what
needs to happen for fulfilment and realisation of your
potential to take place. This reflects where you are and
helps to assist you in developing the vision of what it
is that you need to do from now on, in order to achieve
more and do more with your life.

This includes a comprehensive work book and five different styles
of résumé construction. You then write your résumé
and the Coach will work with you to edit and strengthen it so
that your résumé will achieve interviews. (We
have learnt to our cost and that of our participants not to
write the résumés for you. This is because you
will have to “bat off it” at the interview and interviewers
can tell that it is not your work and this has serious implications
for your chances of a job offer).

of strong and succinct covering letters both for adverts and
when you send speculative applications.
We also show you how to develop a successful
job search plan. Interestingly at least 60% of the people we
coach gain their next position through the “Hidden Job
Market”. We show you how to succeed in this very effective
job search area.
