Do you dread (or reject) working with clients who want or need to make a career change? Not sure how to position them or even how best to collect resume content? This seminar offers strategies and materials to help you guide career-change clients in focusing their job search and providing appropriate information for documents. In addition, the session will cover approaches to helping clients deal with changes in their career, self-image, and personal marketing, as well as keys for evaluating new job opportunities.

In this teleseminar, participants will learn:

  • How to help clients focus on a new career field (and job titles) and articulate their basic qualifications and appropriateness.
  • How to help clients build a new brand based on their core values, career goals, and transferable skills and training.
  • How to help clients identify accomplishments (CAR) that best suit the new career in terms that relate to the new job area.
  • How to construct the career-change resume to optimize the clients’ experiences while avoiding having past careers disqualify their candidacy.

Freddie Cheek, M.S. Ed., CCM, MCD, CPRW, CARW, CWDP, has 30+ years’ experience in resume writing, job search training, career coaching, adult education, and human resources. During that time, she has written thousands of resumes for individuals in nearly every career field and job level. Freddie has administered federal and state job placement contracts, worked for nonprofits, school districts, and recruitment firms, and taught journalism and English in NY and NC. Her writing samples and job search advice are published in 20+ books.

One Hour Teleseminar is $19.99 for members and $29.99 for non-members. The teleseminar will be recorded.
