Developing Momentum in Your Job Search

SUNDAY 18TH NOVEMBER 2018, Central London


A four hour intensive workshop to be champion as you prepare for, ramp up your search and/or be offered your next job

The job market keeps changing and so do the best ways to find work.

Sending CVs and hoping for the best is not working. But why is it not working, and what can you do to get shortlisted and land a new role that is a great fit and next step in your career?

In this practical and highly experiential four hour workshop, Ros Toynbee of the UK's no 1 career management coaching website, The Career Coach will share with you:

- Why reactive methods of job search (responding to job ads, recruiters) are failing job hunters and three other proactive methods you can use instead to get shortlisted.

- What employers are really looking for (hint: your experience and skill set is not enough).

- Why getting your LinkedIn profile right is even more important than creating an eye-catching CV, and the simple steps anyone can take to get their Profile in top tip shape even if they hate social media.

- How to network with ease, even if you're an introvert or your network is tiny. Plus how to grow your network so it can support your search and lead you to great opportunities.

- How to stay motivated, and prevent lack of response or rejections de-railing you emotionally and from working your job search plan.

- What you need to know to really stand out in an interview, and gain a job offer, even if other candidates have more experience than you.


- You are thinking of embarking on a job search and are looking to update your tactics, especially if it's been over three years since you last applied for an external role, or you just that motivational push to get started.

- You've started your job search but you are getting shortlisted for jobs that don't float your boat and not shortlisted for those you do. Or you are not finding sufficient jobs of interest, full stop.

- Your search has stalled, or slowed down, because you're losing motivation and not achieving results.

- You are bewildered by LinkedIn. You don't see the point of it and you have no interest in using it. Why the fuss?

- You are changing sector, and don't know how to appear a credible candidate.

- You want feedback on your CV and/or how you are presenting yourself in an interview.

- You are unfamiliar with the UK job market and/or are unsure how job search tactics differ in the UK to your home country.


- Preparing for your job search (or how to refocus and get back on plan)/Motivation

- Winning CVs and LinkedIn Profiles.

- Finding Opportunities: The five ways to find work and the best methods for you.

- How to be introduced to someone who works in your ideal organisation, and have a conversation with them to learn about opportunities there.

- Negotiating the job offer for success.

- Your personal job search action plan.
