Key elements of the process are:
The first step is to determine where you are in the job search process. Focus is essential. If you are still trying to figure out exactly what you want to do, you can explore self-assessments and resources to help clarify your goals.
You’ll explore how activities like networking, leveraging LinkedIn, attending conferences, conducting informational interviews, participating in professional organizations, meeting with executive recruiters, and searching executive-level job posting sites can support you in accomplishing your career objectives.
Resume and branding materials
Next, you’ll look at your resume, cover letters, LinkedIn profile, portfolio, and any other materials you may need. Your materials will be optimized both for a quick personal look and for an electronic scanning process.
Your coach will help you manage internal and/or external job postings and help you develop company advocates to support the hiring process. You’ll be connected with job postings and on-campus recruiting opportunities through Ross.
Make sure you’re ready to shine, and be prepared for interviews in any kind of format. Partner with your coach to develop your most strategic talking points and convey the value you offer. Mock interviews can assist with feedback on your style.
Negotiating the offer
Your coach will help you advocate for what you want in a job offer, and also assess whether a given opportunity is right for you.
