Executive Identity – your personal brand on the job market


Free session for experienced managers & executives in Europe who are currently looking for a job (or getting ready for it): “Executive Identity – your personal brand on the job market”.

Being aware of your personal brand and influencing it skillfully is the difference between “Who are you?” and “Thank you for being here” in your career. But it takes it even further: it’s the difference between the zeros on your paycheck. Or whether your phone stops ringing when you lose your job.

As the job market becomes more and more competitive and fierce, fully self-aware managers – who are visible – are in demand!

During this interactive meeting we’ll explain:
– what influences how you are perceived as a “high caliber” executive
– why some C-level candidates consistently receive the best-paid offers
– how not to be perceived as someone suffering from “multiple personality disorder”
– how to build your “Executive IdentityRead more

Studia podyplomowe Career Advisory – po ósmym zjeździe

„Skontaktowałem się bezpośrednio z 40 firmami: 5 odpowiedziało, z 2 rozmawiałem przez telefon lub na Skypie. Po 7 dniach wysłałem follow-up do tych, które nie zareagowały. Po kolejnych 3 dniach wysłałem im zaproszenia na LinkedIn. Skontaktowałem się z 1 alternatywnym decydentem. Rezultat: cisza.” Do Konsultantów Kariery często trafiają sfrustrowani kandydaci, którzy nie są świadomi tego, co robią źle, i dlaczego ich poszukiwania są bezskuteczne. Do tego dochodzą lata doświadczenia oraz wiek, na który kandydaci zrzucają winę swoich niepowodzeń. Kluczem do sukcesu jest strategia i aktywne wykorzystywanie nowoczesnych kanałów poszukiwania pracy: networking, kontaktowanie headhunterów, aplikacja bezpośrednia. Właśnie tej tematyki dotyczył ósmy zjazd.

Free session for experienced managers & executives in Europe who are currently looking for a job (or getting ready for it): “Headhunt the headhunter for your job search“.

– why it’s important to communicate with headhunters and why you should never ghost them (even if they ghost you)
– how to fine-tune your LinkedIn profile to be found at the research stage
– how to make sure to make the most of every single conversation you have with them Read more

Career Advisory postgraduate studies – after the sixth weekend

What are your strengths from the employer’s point of view? Why should they choose you from among all other candidates?
Will they see – at first sight – what makes you unique when they look at your CV? Why should the decision maker give you 15 minutes, although their company isn’t recruiting right now? These are challenges of clients that a career consultant has to deal with every day. The sixth weekend of the Career Advisory postgraduate studies was devoted to preparing an effective CV and a LinkedIn profile from a job search perspective.
