TIPS ON DEVELOPING A JOB CAMPAIGN

When working with my clients we establish their current situation in detail and then craft a customised  and holistic job campaign to meet their specific needs.
 

An overview provides some insight how this works in general,  although different elements may be used in the context of a specific clients needs : 

 
 

See the approach as a campaign with 3 major phases that interact- 

  1. PREPARE

  2. ACT   

  3. CONSOLIDATE AND SUSTAIN

Each element of each phase provides opportunity for very detailed and effective coaching and support

PREPARATION PHASE

  • Set up intelligence systems that enable you to keep up with trends and issues in your specific area/ profession
  • Set up job board systems to establish current market activity in term of roles on offer and who is hiring
  • Securing professional coaching help provides access to  knowledge on effective campaigning at all stages
  • Develop a high impact, professional CV/ Resume that clearly shows you value and customise it to resonate with specific roles
