Whether you are seeking to explore your career options or are just doing a job search, Career Strategies Group can be there with you every day to guide your campaign.

As your coach, partner and mentor, our mission is to help you get the best job you can command in the shortest possible amount of time. We are job search experts – it’s what we do – and we have the knowledge and resources to help you run an efficient, productive campaign.

As your career counseling mentor, we show you the best approach in marketing yourself.   Our career coaching can help you if you are searching for an alternative career  or for an executive position.

We provide advice and counsel, career change ideas, “brainstorm” and answer any questions that arise as your search progresses. We also prepare you for actual interviews (a special 2-hour video training program is available) and help you handle offer evaluation and salary negotiation issues.

The following are the general services we offer as your Personal Mentor and Career Coach.

Opportunity-spotting  – We will strategize with you on how to spot changes in a company or industry, and how to leverage those changes and create a job for yourself. This strategy is a hallmark of Career Strategies and is the best job search method of all, bar none.

Critiquing of letters – We will review your custom materials to make sure they are on target.

Interview preparation – We can make sure you are absolutely prepared for each interview, and orchestrate the follow-up interview rounds so you can make a successful career change.

Reaching Decision-makers – If you are having problems getting through to decision makers, or having trouble convincing decision makers to interview you, we can fix that. We will develop compelling messaging that will get doors open for you.

Penetrating a Company – As highly successful marketing executives ourselves (we were not always career counselors!) we, we can help develop strategies that can go a long way toward getting  you into  specific companies or industries.

Create-a-job – We have a very detailed “create-a-job” strategy that can be applied whenever a company has an unfulfilled want and need that cannot be readily handled internally. Many of our success stories involve jobs that were newly created for our clients.

Maintaining Campaign Effectiveness –  We will track your campaign’s strengths and weaknesses, evaluate performance, and make changes in the marketing plan as warranted. The goal in our career counseling process is to help you make your career change as quickly and efficiently as possible. We will keep you focused on activities that produce results.

General Questions – If you’re not sure about a job search issue, call us; our tremendous knowledge about all aspects of job search and career change is only a phone call or email away.

Offer Evaluation – Getting an offer is always nice, but is it the right offer?  We can help determine if an offer is the one to take. If you have received multiple offers – which sounds great but makes for a challenge — we will help you pick the best of the offers, based on your personal career goals.

Salary Negotiation -How much can you ask for without asking for too much? We empower our clients by helping them develop effective compensation negotiation strategies using our knowledge of current salary levels.

Career Counseling and Coaching time is available on retainer, usually from 3 to 9 hours. Additional time may be purchased if necessary. With this program, you commit to Career Counseling and coaching time only when you need it.

Career Strategies has guided several thousand clients through successful job searches. Our extensive knowledge and all of the “tricks of the trade” we know about job search are available to guide you through your job search efficiently and productively.
