Udemy - How to 'Jump Start' Your Career to Get The Job You Want!

What if you had the power to take proactive control of your career and your future? If you had the ability to open doors to opportunities others rarely see and the skills to secure the position you really want ahead of your competition?


Welcome to this course, which is an online version of the one-to-one 'Jump Start' Programme I have been using to help people from across the to world define, find and secure the career opportunity they really want.

It can be a common frustration that despite having a wealth of skills and abilities, people struggle to get a response to their CV / resume from job boards or recruitment firms. At the outset, positive feelings and confidence about the future can quickly turn to negativity and despondency.

As one of my previous clients summed up this situation: 'I just don't know why my CV isn't working for me!'

Whether you're new to the job market or have been immersed in it for a while, this course will give you the answers to the burning questions you have and to the questions you never thought to ask.

Successful job search is much more than a well-worded CV / resume. In fact the most important thing in finding success in the job market is your own psychology – what you believe, how you think and the action you choose to take.

I'll teach you the proven Career Codex framework for defining, finding and securing the career opportunity you really want, not just the one you've seen advertised or the one presented to you by a professional recruiter.

It moves you from a state of reactive chaos to put you in proactive control of your job search every step of the way. The state of the job market and what others do is not important – what matters is what you choose to do and how you do it.

Wherever you're based in the world and whether you're looking to make a career move within sector or a career change / transition to something new, this course will teach you the skills, strategies and a proven approach that really works.

It covers the four key stages of any successful job search:

Environment – how the job market really works and how to therefore position yourself successfully to stand out. 

Psychology – how your beliefs ultimately lead to your success or failure, and that personal responsibility and self-evaluation are the real keys to success in the job market. 

Planning – how to define the job you want and your unique offering. Then how to build a personal jobseeker plan to deliver the opportunity you desire within a clearly specified period of time. 

Process – the more traditional tools to find job search success, but approached from a completely different angle. This includes CV / resume and cover letter composition, how to get in front of decision makers (recruiters, employers and 'marketmakers'), interview techniques, social media strategies, professional networking and offer negotiation.

While others simply advise that to find success in the job market you need to stand out, this course shows you how!

I look forward to working with you and helping you find the success you know you deserve.

To Your Success!

Best wishes
