A job search is an opportunity to investigate your strengths, to create your personal brand, and discover a career that is a perfect fit for you. Once you define your personal brand, it's time to communicate that brand to others. Your personal network is the most effective way to get the word out. 80% of jobs are found not by posting on job boards, but through personal networks. More surprising is that the most productive contacts are usually not close friends, but acquaintances! So how do you get people who barely know you to think of you for a specific role? It's about developing that 10-second elevator speech that communicates your personal brand, and making sure everything that prospective employers see and hear about you - your job, your references, your resume, your cover letters, your social and professional networking pages - deliver consistently on your personal brand promise.
Scholar Strategies applies proven business approaches to help you present yourself in your best light. You can't be all things to all people, so at the core of what we do is help you find the right-fit potential careers to match your individual strengths. It's about taking what you've done - your job history, achievements, and activities - and telling a compelling story about who you are and who you have the potential to become.
At Scholar Strategies, you will partner with a counselor to develop your personal brand and to ensure that message is consistent across all areas of your job search process.
