Why Hire a Job Skills Coach?

Ever play sports or an instrument when you were younger? If so, my guess is that before you walked onto the court or stepped up on stage, you had a teacher/coach who helped you prepare for that moment. I bet many of you (or your parents) even hired a professional coach so you could really shine.

Winning in today’s job market is a lot like that – you need practice, preparation and skills. You also need a great coach to motivate and guide you. The stakes are high when your professional life and financial future are on the line, so get the support you need to compete.

Insights

Limiting Your Search

Over 80% of jobs are never posted.  Your job search should include more than just submitting resumes to hundreds of online job listings.  That’s easy (and feels productive) but it’s not effective.  Tap into the hidden job market and learn all the important aspects of a diversified job search.

Maximize Opportunity

By the time you get to an actual interview, you have already invested significant time, money and mental effort to secure it.  Make the most of every opportunity because this interview is a chance to change your future for the better!

The Best First Impression

Interviewers often know within the first 3 minutes of meeting a candidate whether they will advance that person on to the next level of the interview process.  Make a great first impression, then keep the conversation going with the right interview strategies that present the best version of you.

Value Return

The average starting salary for a young professional is $54K.  So for every month you are unemployed, you are losing nearly $5,000!  For more experienced professionals, the opportunity costs are even greater.  Get the help you need to get hired faster.

A Crowded Field

Today’s job market is filled with more candidates applying for fewer jobs than ever before.  Finding your competitive edge is critical.  Just as a promising athlete hires a coach to uplevel his game, an Ace coach can help you gain skills and knowledge to win your job search game.  Train like you want the job!

Time Management

Job searching is a marathon, not a sprint.  Whether you’re looking for your dream job or need a new position quickly to support your family, you want a plan that keeps you going and productive.  Use Ace the Interview’s job search structure to keep all your ducks in a row and focus your efforts where you’ll see the greatest benefit. 

Personalized Coaching

Every client is unique.  I work with a few clients in a deep way to identify your greatest strengths and teach you how to communicate those in a compelling way that gets job offers.

A Client Shared

As a 55-year old heading back to the work force after a twenty-year sabbatical, I knew it was not going to be an easy feat to procure a job. My skills were rusty and my confidence was low. I sought out Alicia Kennedy, Ace the Interview Coach, after hearing many good things about the company and her abilities, and I am so happy that I did. Alicia has a calming presence and an uncanny ability to pinpoint your strengths and make them work for you.

From the beginning, she was incredibly thorough in obtaining as much information about me as possible to develop my resume. And her effort paid off with a resume that earned many compliments throughout my job search. That was just that beginning of our journey. Alicia was invaluable to me in many ways: from practicing the interview process to sending me texts to follow-up on the actual interview, she guided me through the process. I never felt alone, as she happily answered my questions and concerns. It felt as though she genuinely cared about my success. She even helped me choose outfits for the interviews, which was a lovely personal touch.

Through her guidance and expertise, I now have my dream job. Her intelligence, patience, kindness, and business savvy were critical in making it happen. Whether you are just leaving college and looking for your first job, or you are ready to return to work at a ‘riper’ age, or anyone in between, I highly recommend Alicia Kennedy and Ace the Interview.
