Cynopsis: Classified Advantage
Good morning. It’s Tuesday, April 23, 2013, and this is your weekly issue of Cynopsis: Classified Advantage!
What is a career coach and how do I find one?
Sometimes an outside perspective can be key to prepping for the job search process or jump-starting a stalled one to help you maintain a clear direction; that’s the kind of help a career coach provides. The International Coach Federation is the number one trade organization for career coaches and governs industry standards. You can search by geography to find someone in your area. Be sure and ask for references and check them. Also, see if the counselor is willing to do a free phone trial of 30-60 minutes before you commit. This will allow you to determine whether the chemistry between you and the counselor is right.
Knowledge of national news and politics is important when going through the job-search process and meeting new people. AllTop is a site that allows you to stay abreast of current news and topics of interest, including headline stories from The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and CNN. It’s customizable for your life, professional focus, and leisure interests. Try signing up, reading and sharing select articles with others. Posting articles for employed people in your network, if done selectively, can be an effective way of demonstrating that you are knowledgeable and helpful. Pulse is a similar resource for mobile devices (iPhones or Android).
Also, be sure to conduct a Google search the day of an interview. If XYZ company is in the news that day because they just launched a new product or a company video of theirs went viral, you have a great conversation starter for the interview.
