    While we recommend watching the interview replay below to learn more, here are some of Jeannine’s favorite tips: 

    Invest in Continuous Learning and Development

    ‘In an ever-evolving field like career services, staying updated with the latest trends, tools, and techniques is crucial.

    Join professional associations like the Career Directors International (CDI) to access valuable resources, network with industry experts, and stay ahead of the curve.

    Continuously honing your skills ensures you provide the highest quality service to your clients.

    Embrace Automation

    Implementing efficient systems and processes is crucial for staying organized and presenting a professional front to clients.

    Automation helps streamline tasks, ensuring nothing falls through the cracks while also enhancing the client experience.

    By embracing automation tools and workflows, you’ll boost productivity and professionalism in your career services business.

    Build Strong Relationships and Partnerships

    I just collaborated on a book project with 11 other individuals so I find networking to be critical.

    Networking isn’t just about collecting business cards; it’s about building genuine connections and mutually beneficial relationships.

    Collaborate with other professionals such as recruiters, HR professionals, and career coaches to expand your reach and offer comprehensive solutions to your clients.

    Leverage platforms like LinkedIn to engage with industry influencers, share valuable insights, and position yourself as a thought leader.

    Strong relationships and partnerships not only attract more clients but also open doors to new opportunities and growth for your business.

    Personalization is Key

    I don’t believe in the cookie-cutter approach.

    My clients are unique so I recommend tailoring your services to the unique needs and goals of each client sets you apart in the competitive landscape.

    Take the time to deeply understand your client’s background, aspirations, and challenges.

    Craft personalized resumes, LinkedIn profiles, and career strategies that resonate with their individual story and ambitions.

    This personalized approach not only boosts client satisfaction but also enhances your reputation and referrals.
