We divide the process of "contemplating a career transition"
into three phases.
Phase I | Phase
II | Phase III
This is Phase III.
After the first phase of our career transition program, Assessment,
you will have identified a range of desirable career options that
make sense for you, given who you are: your likes and dislikes,
your preferences, your most enjoyable skills.
After the second phase of this process, you will
have determined whether real positions exist now that are compatible
with your options -- and especially whether your preferences might
be compatible or harmonious with what exists.
In this third phase, Implementation, you will want
to know "How will you get to where you'd like to be?" "How will
you organize a campaign?" "When will you send letters or resumes
(not effective if you are changing career directions) and when will
you use one page bios (more effective and dignified than resumes)".
"How will you alter or continue information-gathering interviews?"
"How will you prepare and rehearse for job interviews?" "How will
you see yourself as the interviewer sees you in the actual job interview?"
"What questions will you be prepared to answer?" "To ask?"
The end result will be a safe and soft landing
in a job or career that makes sense given what's out (Phase II)
there consistent with what your most enjoyable skills and who you
are (Phase I), and how you implement these results to get where
you want to be.
