Job Search & Application Program
The Job Search and Application Program is designed to help reduce the stress and anxiety that comes with applying for jobs.
Program participants meet regularly in small cohorts and in 1:1 sessions with a Thrive coach. Through the program, there will be time spent on how to conduct a job search, identifying professional goals, developing application materials, and identifying networking opportunities and strategies, which will all help inform their job applications.
Custom Career Coaching
Despite the difficult job market as a result of the pandemic, there are jobs out there. The biggest challenge job-seekers are facing as they seek to enter or re-enter the workforce, or pursue a new opportunity, is to be noticed among the many other applicants.
We offer a selection of services to help you manage your job search, strengthen your application materials, prepare for interviews, and improve your confidence in your career aspirations.
Resume & Cover Letter Review - $35
First impressions matter, and you have about 10 seconds to show your best. Your cover letter and resume are the first documents that show employers or networking contacts your ability to write and communicate. They need to shine - be professional, relevant, relevant, and tell your story.
A review includes a 30-minute appointment dedicated to immediate review and feedback on the content and formatting of your documents.
Job Search Strategy - $70
A typical job search takes 4-6 months. Being strategic, organized, and focused can help reduce that time and improve your engagement within your professional network.
Job Search Strategy coaching includes one 60-minute coaching session, during which we will develop a strategy for creating a targeted list of employers, expanding your network, and creating meetings with new connections.
LinkedIn Review - $35
LinkedIn is the professional networking platform. When used to its fullest, it allows you to develop new professional relationships, engage meaningfully in your professional arena, and be ahead of others when it's time to seek a new opportunity.
A LinkedIn review includes a 30-minute appointment dedicated to immediate review of the content and engagement in the platform. (This requires a LinkedIn profile to have already been created.)
Interview Preparation - $70
Interviews, whether informal or formal, play a significant role in building relationships, opening the door to new opportunities, and securing the job you want. Being prepared, having done your research about the industry, and communicating clearly are equally important to moving forward in your career search and development.
Interview Preparation includes a 60-minute appointment dedicated to interviewing skills and a short mock interview.
