What is a Job Search Coach?

Coaches help individuals improve in order to achieve their goals. In job search it is no different, a job search coach will highlight your talents, assist in developing goals and give you honest input about what you can do to reach your goals and build your future.

What can a Job Search Coach do for me?

A job search coach will give you someone experienced in the area of recruitment to talk to about “what is working” and “what is not working” plus it will help you structure your search to ensure that you are focussing your efforts in the right places and using the best tools and techniques available.

  • Resume and cover letter review and guidance
  • Interview skills including practice (role play)
  • Job search techniques
  • Using LinkedIn to improve your profile
  • Learning what follow up techniques are most effective after a job interview
