Private Job Search

Our clients report much better results considering job search duration, the quality of offers, and the number of opportunities and offers, when comparing a Private Job Search to previous job searches.

“For the past 17 years, we have been a truly unique private career services provider, a quiet and effective team behind our client’s successful job moves – driving a better fit for their professional, personal and financial objectives.”
-Janice Waterman, Founder

Private Job Search Process

There are four steps to our Private Job Search Process and Services. After each step, you can determine if you want to engage the team for the next step or one on one advisory-coaching, or execute the remainder of your search with expert tools, training, preparation and planning. Your unique approach can be equally effective to reaching your goals depending upon your job search experience, skills, the strength of your network, your market position, and the time you have available to allocate to a job search.

Step 1: Strategic Search Preparation

Step 1 provides all the tools and the plan you need to execute a strategic and thorough search.

Step 1 includes services to launch or energize your search. Your Marketing Plan, Resume, LinkedIn profile, Biography and Marketing Letters are all built to achieve your unique goals, considering primary and secondary goals, target market, unique experiences and leadership skill set, your message, professional story, market position, your value proposition challenges and advantages, and include detailed target market contact lists which generally include between 200 and 500 contacts with access to positions that fit your goals.

Step 2: Interview and Network Training

You may engage us for Step 1 and 2 to be fully prepared to navigate the market and market yourself armed with expert research, preparation, guidance and practice for networking meetings and interviewing in a variety of customized and relevant scenarios.

Step 3: Reference Report

You may engage us for Step 1 through 3 so that you will know upfront what your references will say about you and receive guidance on how to manage the reference process, and market your own background and skills, fully understanding your position and reputation in the marketplace, and if needed, a strategy to be seen the way you want to be seen.

If you determine that you would benefit from our marketing and networking services and/or ongoing advice and research, you have two choices:

Step 4: End to End Services or 60 Days Advisory/Coaching

Step 4: End to End Services

You may engage us for an End to End Private Search. An End to End Private Search provides comprehensive and highly customized coaching, research, planning and marketing services from day one of your search or search reboot through an accepted offer.
