Navigating Career Change – for Senior Executives

If you’ve ever asked one of the following questions, this coaching process could be for you.

  • How do I balance work and personal life?
  • How do I keep my ambition high, but focus on other areas of life importance?
  • How can I assess what are the most important factors in considering career change?
  • I’ve been out of the market for a while or I want a complete change – where do I start?

Indicators of Success

This process is designed to help you create a defined and prioritised set of criteria by which to gauge opportunities and create satisfaction in your career and business endeavours. By developing this criteria independent of your current situation, you will increase the likelihood of creating objective criteria upon which to base future decisions. This customised process will assist you in integrating your personal values, skills, life purpose, desired legacy, compensation and lifestyle needs into a powerful decision-making tool and guide. Even those who have used multiple career assessment tools find this to be a profound clarifier of their life direction.

Career Satisfaction Guidelines

This guidelines provides one of the many ways to utilise the information gathered in the Indicators of Success. The Satisfaction Guidelines helps you to identify patterns in choosing work and business opportunities. It serves as a snapshot of your overall career satisfaction, and helps to surface areas for future focus in our coaching.

Curriculum Vitae & Cover Letter Development

An output of this process is to produce an interview-winning CV, but also help you internalise and articulate your unique value proposition to potential employers. You will hone your message in tightly written document that is future-focused and accomplishment oriented. Your resume and cover letter will stand out from the stack and invite dialogue and interest.

Digital Calling Cards – Your Most Important Branding Tool

For most people changing jobs, their early exposure to those who have the power to hire is via digital calling cards: Linked In, Xing, Twitter, Viadeo and many others on-line. You’ll get a critique on two public digital calling cards (any public site or your own website), including input on how to make your profile convey the right impression; advice on style, body language and how these simple things can communicate as you intend – for example, your photo style alone can be stopping your progression. We’ll review your personal brand description, and how you order and present your skills and personal image.

The Igniting Career Change process gives all–important self-awareness to the seasoned, experienced person – who needs an objective, senior professional source to get that kind of essential and candid input.

The approach can be customised to your personal circumstances and goals.

Graduate Students and Emerging Market Talent

Brighter Horizons – Boosting Your Job Search

Brighter Horizons is a condensed package of advice provided by Tim Biscaye and other seasoned executives, coaches and search professionals. The Brighter Horizons process is efficient and affordable to help graduate students and professionals in emerging markets who need a boost in your career search but may not be able to afford our standard process.

For most people on the hunt for that new position, their early exposure to those who have the power to hire is via digital calling cards: Linked-In, Facebook, Skype and your CV on-line. The average length of time the person hiring will look at a CV is between 3-8 seconds.  If you get it wrong from first glance, you’ll get the delete button, not the interview. If you do get the interview, the style and approach you use in those all-important moments can easily fail repeatedly, but you won’t know why without objective, candid, input from an experienced professional.

How does it work?

You’ll be asked to answer some initial briefing questions for one of team member’s review, along with your CV and two  social media profiles chosen by you.

We review your CV and give advice on CV layout and key wording.  You will receive feedback and advice on two public digital calling cards (any public site or your own website), including input on how to make your photos give a stronger and more positive professional impression.  We’ll review your personal brand description, and suggest how to better present your skills and personal image.

You will go through a 15 minute practice interview on Skype video or in person, and you’ll get feedback on elements that will improve your overall impression, speaking style, and interview techniques. The Brighter Horizons process results can help you be more successful in the competitive job market, setting you up for the job you want.
