The monetary and time benefits of managing your job search.

Estimated Time for Job Searching
6-12 months if you manage it.~3-6 months for our team since we know the best ways to tap into the hidden job market.
Networking out to targeted companiesWhen networking out yourself, most people give up after 20.We strategically search for companies and the right contacts to reach out continuously until something happens.  It becomes a numbers game like marketing- where you could reach out to 100 people but only 3-6% need you.  You just reply back to the people you want to talk to you. 
Authentically branding your value, story, and missionDoing this yourself is very difficult. You need feedback, input, and an executive coach to get you clear on this.We help you get authentically in touch and clear on the unique value you bring to companies, weaving your founder's story and mission, and humanizing your leadership abilities.
Job InterviewsMany people can cycle through this process repeatedly without landing offers. Landing the offer is a challenging process and it is much more competitive at this level.We show you an effective consultative strategy to use when interviewing the lands more roles. More offers, better salary. Landing the offer is difficult without a clear strategy. Clients usually land 3X more offers with this strategy.

Lost WagesMany people get caught up in work or desperately need a break so they are not focusing on job searching full-time and lose traction which elongates this process, sometimes by several months.Each week out of work you lose --> MID $2K+ EXEC $4K+, C-LEVEL, $100K+We are contacting you weekly, sometimes multiple times a week. This is why we need to cut the search time by 1/2. We often save clients 3 months of search time -->MID $27K, EXEC $50K+, C-LEVEL, $125K+).
Salary Negotiations & Trajectory: When a recruiter is working externally for a company that person charges ~20% of your salary per role --> MID $20K, EXEC $40K, C-LEVEL, $100K+) which decreases your ability to negotiate higher (the employer has to pay both of you), and your salary trajectory can take a hit from this. By going directly to the right sources, we often can bypass external recruiters and their fees, giving you higher negotiating power.
Onboarding: Many people think "I have the job. I am finished with this process!" But 20% of people in new roles either don't stay or are exited within the first year.We go over how to self-onboard effectively to set up expectations and communication to ensure your success
