PERSONAL CAREER COACHING

In the 21st century, management of successful career change depends on a proactive, strategic plan. Change is occurring in our lives at breakneck speed with no slowdown in sight. We can either harness the change or stand on the sidelines. To build a successful career, what worked 10 or even 5 years ago does not work today and certainly, will not work tomorrow. All bets are off. We must discard old assumptions, craft new strategies, and employ new tools. Simply stated, we must understand the dynamics of today's job market. Based on the premise of understanding the job market, we can help you build a dynamic, strategic career plan.

Career Management Associates Midwest offers four programs customized to your distinct needs and level of experience:

Career Essentials Program

Do you know how to explore opportunities rather than look for jobs? Do you know how to present yourself to people and organizations that seemingly don’t even have a position for you? Do you know how to get in front of the real decision makers? Career Management Associates Midwest coaches do, and we can show you how.

You and others may be surprised at your struggle to make connections that are worthwhile in your search. While you may know tons of influential people in the business community, do you really know how to successfully approach them in situations like this? It's not just about how large your network is, but more about how effectively you network and market yourself with respect to finding a new opportunity. We’ll make sure you know:

  • Who is going to be able to assist you in your search and how to work with them effectively
  • How to work with your contacts without making them feel uncomfortable
  • How to expand your contacts to include people that have worked for you and with you
  • How to get the most out of online groups like LinkedIn, Facebook and others

Comprehensive Career Transition Program

You did not attain your current level of career achievement without going through some type of job search. But maybe it’s been awhile, and things have changed. Maybe you’ve been so busy meeting your organization's objectives and helping others with their careers that you’ve neglected your own, even though it's time to consider moving on to another opportunity. As an executive accustomed to seeing the big picture, you know that a lot goes into a process as important as this. You know you need support to help with details in more than one area, and you also want to effectively manage your resources. In your case, choosing from à la carte services may not be the right approach. Consider this cost-saving package of services instead.

We have combined the most important elements of a successful position search into one package, including access to our Online Career Portal with one-on-one career coaching - all at a significant savings over purchasing these services individually.

Experts at Career Management Associates Midwest know what resources are important for specialized, complex position searches, so we have consolidated the best-in-the-business tools with the most knowledgeable coaches to provide you with a complete package of services that rivals anything available in the market today.

Premier Career Marketing Program

Ignite your career transition performance and results of your career search by working outside of the traditional methods of identifying, pursuing and securing a new career opportunity.

Our methodology is comprehensive and is much more than “teaching” the 101 basics of networking, interviewing and resume development. If you are tired of recruiters not returning phone calls, resumes, job boards and antiquated methods, then we can help.

The Strategic Rules for Conducting a Successful Opportunity Transition:

  • Most people "apply" for job openings [reactive]. Rather, we teach you to "create" career opportunities [proactive].
  • Create opportunities by “solving problems” and by "adding value".
  • Strategy equates to a shorter transition process.
  • “Cookie cutter” resumes are for “job seekers” not “opportunity seekers" and will do more “harm” than “good”.
  • Separate yourself from the interviewing “cattle call”.
  • Learn how and understand the value of educating a network regarding “core competencies” and “passion”. Networking is a lifelong endeavor.
  • The prospective employer is interested in the “How To.”
  • Research is more than a prospective employer's stock price and website
  • The core to negotiating is “leverage” which is achieved through a well-crafted and communicated “value proposition”.

Executive Agent℠

When considering multiple business engagements and opportunities, Executives require an experienced and dependable ally. Career Management Associates Midwest has a solid reputation constantly delivering options worthy of consideration.

We represent senior executives (typically Presidents and CEOs); much like a sports agent represents an athlete. Our clients are interested in one or more of the following: the turnaround of a failing company, growth of a new investment platform, desire to acquire a board seat and expand their professional relationship base, career transition, or purchase a company. Career Management Associates Midwest will significantly increase your ability to create, identify and secure the opportunity worthy of you and your family.

Career Management Associates Midwest’s Executive Agent℠ strategy creates opportunities; it does not involve traditional and antiquated methods. With your cooperation, we will position your passion and core competencies to communicate and demonstrate value:

  • Did a significant headhunting fee eliminate you from having the opportunity to present and position your value?
  • Is it difficult to identify and pursue options while maintaining your executive responsibilities?
  • Will you enjoy or should you conduct “marketing calls” to business owners and leaders? Is it awkward contacting your network feeling as if you are asking for a "job"?
  • You have a pipeline, offers, relationships, etc., however, not sure what to do next?
  • Is it time to seek a board position or own your own company?
  • Are you concerned about confidentiality?
  • Are you confident that you can leverage your core competencies and value through the negotiating process?
  • When you come to these crossroads and others, as your Executive Agent℠, we will make a significant difference, providing years of practical knowledge, support, tools, and guidance.
