Step 1: Assess Needs & Goals
Layoffs are a tough process to go through.
Those affected are often hit with a paralyzing combination of financial concerns, shock and panic, and lowered self-esteem.
A positive reframing of the situation allows individuals to shift their perspective from a feeling of loss – which can hinder job search performance – to a sense of new opportunity.
We listen to what each client needs and provide practical tools that help them regain a positive perspective including:
- One-on-one coaching to identify career direction preferences and alleviate anxiety
- Career suitability assessments such as Myers–Briggs, Enneagram and StrengthsFinder 2.0
- Budgeting and financial forecasting tools to assist with planning during career transition
Step 2: Create a Plan of Action
In this phase, we work with each client to create a personalized action plan, helping them to:
- Research target companies and positions
- Develop a networking and outreach plan
- Contact recruiters
- Submit applications
- Prepare for interviews
- Follow up with hiring managers
Step 3: Prepare Application & Personal Marketing Materials
Substandard application materials are one of the main reasons applicants have difficulty securing interviews.
Once the direction of travel is clear, we prepare professionally-written personal branding materials to include:
- Optimized LinkedIn Profile
- Cover Letter(s)
- Professional Biography
At this stage, our writers gain an in-depth understanding of each individual’s experience and produce outstanding application documents that set them apart from other similar applicants.
Step 4: Apply for New Roles with Targeted Coaching
Resume Pilots provides follow-up support and tailored job search assistance. We hold clients accountable, offering motivation and encouragement as they execute their action plans.
In these one-on-one coaching sessions, we review progress made to date and provide guidance on the best course of action needed to achieve future career objectives.
Our coaches can assist with:
- Application advice and strategy development
- Interview coaching
- Offer analysis
- Onboarding and performance management
- Salary negotiations
- Goal setting
- Life and career balance
Our dedicated coaches also research and recommend relevant professional development opportunities or certifications.
