A one-of-a-kind certification course that will provide you with the tools and ready-to-use materials to begin offering interview coaching within one review.
This is going to be EASY for you if you write resumes for a living or are already providing coaching services.
If you can:
Then you just need this content and infrastructure to be able to step into effectively prepare your clients for the all-important interview, play a greater role in their success, increase your revenue per client, and dramatically boost your profits.
I was visiting with a member who works with very high-end professionals in an outplacement capacity. Her gross revenue was over $300K at the time. I watched her in her PJs hold her 3-ring CEIC binder on her lap and read directly from it to prepare each executive client she spoke to that day.
The color-coded script content in each module makes it THAT easy.
When I first had the program proofread, the editor who was not a resume writer, came back and said, "From just reading through this program once I feel confident I could stand in front of a group, read from the materials, and no one would ever guess I wasn't a pro".
I've also worked hard to incorporate all kinds of materials into it so that it's effective whether you are working 1-1 at any level of client, or running a class or workshop.
And, you'll also feel fully supported through the sales process and incorporating it into effective packages that help you earn more per client without adding more and more hours of work to your week.
The program is completely self-study at your own pace. You simply:
Your mentor will be available via email to answer your questions and provide feedback on your module exercises. Modules range from 3-32 pages, depending on topic. Exercises will take 20 minutes to two hours to complete.
What makes this program so unique is that once you complete the modules, you do not have to worry about how to integrate it or translate it into client and practice value. You are provided with a revolutionary lecture style manual that is color coded to walk you through what to say, what to do, what to hand out or email, and when to do it! It's completely self-contained and effective for all levels of job seekers.
This session is so packed with all the foundation you will need to successfully add interview strategy to your client service offerings! It's not enough to have the material; instead you also need to be able to package it, sell it with confidence, and offer it with brilliance.
In this session we will cover:
This module provides the elements your clients need to know before they ever get to the interview.
It's a critical starting point to get them off on the right foot. In this module we will cover:
Job seekers must enter their interviews from a position of confidence, knowledge, and power. One key element to accomplish this is through research on the target company and its key competitors.
Armed with data, your clients will appear savvy, engaged, and interested. In this module we will cover:
Without pre-planning and preparation most job seekers will wait to prepare for their interviews once they are scheduled. But with telephone interviews they must be able to perform on-demand.
With these tools you can ensure they are ready. In this module we will cover:
Let's face it, no matter how good someone is at their job, they just might not be fantastic at interviewing - think shy people, new grads, and engineers who prefer to do and not talk. There IS a way for them (and every other candidate) to truly shine in an interview, and that's with an employment portfolio.
This golden nugget can give all your clients an edge and provide another revenue stream for you to help them put them together. In this module we will cover:
To nail an interview, your clients have got to look the part. It's not ALL about dark suits and uber professionalism! Understanding company culture and expectations can make or break an interview.
With this module you can ensure your clients are dressed for their target company interviews. In this module we will cover:
It is not enough to have scripted answers to key questions. Your clients need an actual methodology they can apply to almost all questions to provide hard-hitting interview answers that make them stand out in a positive way.
In this module we will cover:
Understanding and meeting employer expectations is critical in the interview. In this module we will cover:
Even the most prepared job seeker can leave a bad impression solely through word choice that can disempower otherwise positive situations. In this module we will cover:
Just as important as what job seekers say is how they say it. This is where body language will determine how believable the candidate is during the interview. In this module we will cover:
Everybody needs an elevator speech in life, but it becomes an all-important foundation for answering all sorts of "tell me about yourself?" questions in the job interview. In this module we will cover:
You've learned the baseball strategy for answering questions, but now you need the science behind why each core question is asked and what the target response should be.
This module will give you the foundation for what I call the Latin Root Questions. When your clients can answer these, they can answer all questions. In this module we will cover:
This section is so critical because clients need to examine their challenges and areas that could hurt them before the interview. They need a bright and shining POV and the understanding of what employers are looking for (reasons to rule them out). It all comes down to preparation!
When clients are prepared for the 'bad stuff' to come up, they can come out of it in a positive light. In this module we will cover:
It's time for the baby bird (your client) to leave the nest. To make sure they fly right, they need to know what to do now that the interview is scheduled. In this module we will cover:
Job seekers need to be prepared to face a variety of interview types, because one-to-one isn't always the norm.
This module gets intimate with the how-to-rock a variety of interview types. In this module we will cover:
It's not uncommon for employers to want to peek beneath the shiny presentation at the interview. So, it's critical to prepare your clients for checks and tests that can come up in the screening process. In this module we will cover:
Once the interview is over, the work and strategy doesn't end there. Job seekers need to continue to make a positive impression, and their follow up can make or break a great interview (or even save a lousy one). In this module we will cover:
The offer has been made, so now what? In this module you will learn how your clients can walk away with the best offer possible in a win-win strategy. In this module we will cover:
