Job Search Skills

Nick assisted me throughout the entire process – from looking for work, to applying, to interview etc. All his advice was timely, spot on and accurate. But all of this was delivered in a very gentle and unpushy way. I had been recommended someone from a big firm before and had not liked their hectoring, broad brush approach. Nick was totally different. He made me feel valued, appreciated and much more confident. I felt the relationship was personal and I was not merely going through a formulaic process. And it didn’t take very long at all before I got a great job.”  Sara M

Job search comprises various activities and techniques. We can’t list them all here but here are some of the more important tools and activities our coaching might cover. Job search support is offered as part of our one-to-one support.

Networking

Did you know that more people find their jobs through networking than any other method? Not only that, but if you want to make even a small career change then networking is likely to play a crucial part in the process.

Our networking for job search coaching removes the fear and reluctance around approaching people by changing the way you think about and use networking as a business tool.

Getting the Most from Recruiters

To maximise the effectiveness of recruitment agencies and head-hunters it’s important to understand how they operate and how to get them to take an interest in you. Workjoy will show you how.

Research

How do you find out about job opportunities? How do you find out about organisations that you are being interviewd for? How would you go about building a list of prospect companies?

Research is an important part of the job search process and the better you are at it the greater your chances of securing the right role for yourself.

Cover Letters and Application Forms

Workjoy will work with you to write the best letters and sharpest application forms to make sure you give yourself the best possible shot of every opportunity you apply for ensuring you say exactly the right thing in exactly the right way.

Starting Your Own Business

Are you thinking about setting up on your own? It’s a big decision: rewarding and fulfilling, yet risky and scary. Workjoy will help you to decide if self-employment is right for you and work with you to plan your new business.

Psychometric Assessment

Careful use of assessement tools can help a great deal as you consider your future career plans. Understand what motivates you, the type of working environment that best suits you and your needs from the people around you and you will have a wealth of valuable information about yourself that helps you to make those important decisions.

Psychometric testing is not intended to tell you anything you don’t already know. Nor is it meant to be the single source of information for decision making. Instead, think of these tools as a method for stimulating your thought and raising questions to consider.

Our fully qualified consultants are able to suggest the right psychometric tool for your needs and to provide you with a full personal assessment. Instruments include, but are not restricted to, Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Firo-b and 15 Factor Questionnaire.

Please note that psychometric assessments are individually priced according to the instrument used. We will always give you a quote for this work before proceeding.
