CAREER CONFIDENCE

GROUP COACHING

  • ONLINE PORTAL

    CAREER CONFIDENCE ONLINE PORTAL

    The Career Confidence Online Portal provides an added layer of support, guidance and coaching at your fingertips, so you can do the work on your schedule. The online platform contains 5 hours of online coaching, spread over 5 modules, each broken down into easily digestible lessons that take you through the program step by step, over a period of 30 or 60 days (you can select which program suits you best, based on your schedule). Each lesson includes a video (PowerPoint slides with Suzanne narrating key concepts) and accompanying guides and worksheets to facilitate your work. The image below highlights a typical program page, a workbook and a screenshot from one of the lessons.

    In addition to 14 Video Lessons, the program includes guides and worksheets to help you move through your process seamlessly, and get you to the other side of your job search without the overwhelm, fatigue and frustration.

Interviewing for offers covers the nuts and bolts of the interview process, from how to ace a video interview, all the way to how to handle gaps in your background in the best way possible.

  • WEEKLY GROUP COACHING WITH SUZANNE

    The Group Coaching Program includes weekly group coaching calls with Suzanne, designed to provide you with additional insight and answer your questions when they arise.

    Weekly group coaching sessions (50 min each) allow for ongoing support and detailed explanations of key principles, additional insight and answers to your questions, so you can get the support you need at your own pace from an expert in recruiting and job placement.

  • ALL INCLUSIVE ONGOING SUPPORT!

    BY YOUR SIDE THE WHOLE WAY

    You won’t have to wait for the next group coaching call, or dig through the material to find a critical point you missed. I will be online 5 days/week to support you as questions come up, if you need feedback on your work, help on an email, or preparation for a call.

    The program is designed to provide you with ongoing support, so if your search takes longer than expected or you want to take your time to find the right fit, you can feel confident knowing that you’ll still have access to all of the online program resources, along with my support through the online forum and weekly community Q&A calls for 6 months.

    While other coaches require you to pay each time you need more support, I’m committed to the success of every professional I work with. That is why I developed an online community and continue to host weekly Q&A calls so you can get help all the way through negotiating your offer and landing your new job.
