As part of a recent redundancy package I was lucky enough to have the support of June’s career coaching services to help me search and apply for a new job role.
On making contact with June I was offered an introductory one-to-one Skype meeting where we could talk informally about my situation, discuss what I was looking for in a new role, and where best she could support me in the hunt for a new position. Following this initial meeting, June was able to offer me help in a number of areas: periodic one-to-one Skype meetings, support with searching for a suitable new role, help with updating my CV, and interview coaching sessions; all of which I took her up on.
I personally found the one-to-one coaching sessions to be the most helpful of the above services. Without the periodic career sessions I think there is a tendency to drift and lose focus in what you’re actually looking to achieve, and what specific things you should be doing to land a prospective role; in this regard having a work-coach to check-in with from time-to-time really helped me re-focus my activities and plan what my next moves should be.
Should anyone else be looking for some employment support, whether that be because of redundancy, or just because they feel they would like a little help with moving from one job/sector to another, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend June’s excellent career support services to them.
