Overview

 We offer a personalized Career Launch service for early-stage professionals and pre-professionals.


Service Description

 For a young adult who has finished college, the first job is everything. It’s an opportunity to explore a career interest, to learn how to thrive in the working world, and to have a chance for financial independence. It’s an important milestone, and a first of many steps toward a successful future. But in today’s job market, these first jobs are getting to be more and more elusive. Some young adults are working in fields that don’t interest them, or they work only part time hours, or perhaps they can’t find a job at all. That leads to the question of whether they are approaching the job search in the most effective way possible. Many job seekers benefit from the help of a program which provides guidance, structure and support through the job search process.

We offer a Career Launch service designed for pre-professionals and early-stage professionals. Our 3 month program is tailored around each person’s individual needs, but generally starts with an intake meeting followed by a Strong Interests Inventory interpretation. We then cover resume writing and critiquing, the all important skill of networking and how to go about it, interview skills, the job search and how to go about it, and any other relevant topics, including your current job search.

Skills

 I work particularly well with young professionals interested in the fields of finance and technology. I have nearly two decades of practical experience at industry leading firms as a mentor, manager, career development officer, work coordinator, and recruiter of early stage- and pre-professionals.

Overview

Our 3 month program is tailored around each person’s individual needs, but generally follows this format:


Part One: Intake meeting: We learn about your background, interests, strengths, and goals for the future. We discuss a plan for your job search and career exploration.


Part Two: Strong Interest Inventory Test: People do best in careers that they love. For many people, their early career years are spent trying to discover their passions and career strengths. DAA offers the Strong Interest Inventory test to help identify potential careers based on your interests. We are certified practitioners of Strong and will interpret the test’s results in our second meeting. Strong has been around for roughly 80 years and has developed excellent correlations matching the interests of individuals with potential careers.


Part Three: Our third meeting is generally reserved for resume critiquing, on how to develop your networking skills, and how to go about a job search.


Part Four: Interviews are a crucial part of the job search process, and in our fourth meeting we review how to prepare for an interview, and we conduct an actual mock interview. We videotape the interview so that young adults can watch their performance and improve, with a focus on responses, body language and putting your best foot forward.


Part Five: We provide a critique of the interview during our fifth meeting and we discuss progress in networking and job search activities. We also discuss negotiation skills, which are important for discussions of salary, promotions and job offers. This overview of effective negotiating can provide the foundation for a life-long skill.


Part Six: We allocate time for a sixth, and final meeting to provide greater emphasis on any of the above topics, or other relevant topics that may arise during our time together.
