Job Search Strategies

Job Search Strategies

When you are searching for a job you need the right strategy.

It can be a really tough job market out there! Even though you might be applying for 10’s or 100’s of jobs, you ask yourself, why can’t I get any of them? What am I doing wrong?

The biggest issue is HOW you tackle the job market. Most people will apply for jobs that are advertised – maybe on Seek, or on TradeMe or on Indeed.

Many will post their CV on line and send their CV to a Recruiter.

But only a few will tap into the Hidden Job Market.

What if I was to tell you that 70% of the jobs that are available are found in this Hidden Job Market, and only 30% are in what most and many people do. Would that change how you went about looking?

Book in a Session today to learn about the Strategies of the Successful Job Search and how to tap into the jobs that are hidden from most people.

Curriculum Vitae Development

Curriculum Vitae Development

You need the right curriculum vitae to sell yourself.

A successful CV is NOT about writing about everything that you have ever done. A successful CV is your marketing document that sells YOU for the role that you are interested in or are looking for.

First you must identify WHAT the role is that you are applying for or are interested in, and what the potential employer is looking for.

Second you must then identify what you have in way of experience, knowledge and skills that meet this criteria.

Third you need to give evidence of how you have met this criteria.

And last put together your marketing document or CV in a way that talks about you that gets noticed, identifying what you have to offer and your achievements, whilst meeting what your potential employer is looking for!

Simple!

Caroline has written 100’s of CVs for her clients using this formula gaining excellent feedback and success.

If you want a CV that sells you for the job that you want, book a session today.

Personality Profiling

Personality Profiling

To know yourself is to offer the best you can to any role.

Knowing your personality type can help you to discover your perfect career and much more. Whether you are just starting out, looking for a change or exploring other options, understanding your personality type will help you effectively manage your transitions, enrich your current career choice and help you identify opportunities that will best suit your unique talents.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® is the world’s most popular personality profiling tool, and has helped millions of individuals around the world to learn more about themselves, their unique gifts, communication preferences, strengths and possible areas of development.

Caroline Sandford, Career Specialist, is accredited to administer and interpret the Myers Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®).

Taking the MBTI® not only gives you an in depth understanding of yourself, it will also help you appreciate people who differ from you.  Understanding your MBTI® is self-affirming and enables you to make well informed decisions about your future.

History

Personality Type is a theory developed by Swiss psychiatrist Carl G. Jung (1875 – 1961) who studied people’s behaviour for many years. His extensive research and writings have contributed enormously to the field of psychology including our understanding of the structure of the human psyche, conscious and unconscious life, archetypes and natural personality differences.

Jung noticed that much human behaviour that appears random follows clear and predictable patterns related to a few basic personality differences.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® was developed by Katharine Briggs (1875-1968) and her daughter Isabel Myers(1897-1980), to identify personality type.

Katharine and Isabel were keen and disciplined observers of human personality differences.  They studied and elaborated on the ideas of Jung and applied them to understanding people around them.  Prompted by the waste of human potential in World War II, Myers began developing the Indicator to give a wide range of individual’s access to the benefits she found in knowing psychological type and appreciating differences.

This questionnaire has been designed to make Jung’s theory of personality understandable and useful in everyday life.  MBTI® results identify valuable differences between normal, healthy people, differences that can be the source of much misunderstanding and miscommunication.

Take the MBTI® today and gain the insights into how you work best, what environments will help you excel and what jobs are going to be best suited for you.
