The first phase revolves around YOU. You will do a lot of self-examination about who you are, what gives you energy and what your strengths are. It will be an adventure and you will positively surprise yourself, because forgotten talents and desires will come to the surface and will take shape again in the present. When your unique character traits, talents and drives are clear, you can start discovering what would be the ideal job for you!
During the second part of the process, you will explore the industries and positions that you find interesting. Your labour market research will be broad and deep with the help of inspiring exercises. One on hand, think of fun discovery games and on the other hand of targeted searches on the internet and meeting up with network partners to further investigate appealing positions.
The third part consists of personal branding, because now you know which job you are aiming for and are ready to pursue it effectively. This last phase includes rewriting or perfecting your resume, learning to write the ideal letter of application and receiving golden tips on how to move through the application process successfully.
Which parts of a coaching process you need depends on your precise objective and questions. You will find four options described below.
Phases 1, 2 and 3 are suitable if you want to discover your dream job and at the start are still open to a multitude of possibilities. To go through the entire process, which includes all 3 phases would be ideal. This consists of seven conversations and several home assignments in between. Choosing this means that you allow yourself the time to track down that very special job in which you feel like a fish in the water and at the same time challenged to develop further. Because there is a good chance that you will choose a different professional direction than before, it is important to show yourself in a different way. You will rewrite your resume, LinkedIn profile and letters with enthusiasm and longing for the new profession and with confidence you will highlight which relevant talents and transferrable skills you will bring to the table. This package costs €2200,- excl. VAT.
If you think you are king in terms of marketing yourself, then I recommend that you only go through phase 1 and phase 2. Five conversations should then suffice. This package costs €1600,- excl. VAT.
You know exactly what your talents, skills and drives are. You are not looking for more self-insight, but have a purely labour market-oriented question. If this is you, then phase 2 and 3 suit you. Using your knowledge, skills and needs as a starting point, you will explore the labour market in a targeted manner and discover what positions and sectors fit seamlessly. You will also learn to perfectly adapt your CV and letter to the intended position. Advice on collaborating with recruiters and effective networking are also included, if desirable. This package includes five meetings and costs 1600,- excl. VAT.
Do you already know exactly which position(s) you are aiming for and do you only want some help with presenting yourself in a persuasive way: CV, letter and interview? Then two conversations are truly enough to achieve your goal, as long as you aim for positions that suit you. This package costs €660,- excl. VAT.
Career coaching is possible in both Dutch and English. Coaching conversations take place online or in Amsterdam South in the Van Eeghenlaan, located at the Vondelpark. Get in touch for more information or request an exploratory conversation by phone!
