Sessions are provided by an experienced organisational consultant and careers coach. Typically, clients will benefit from 3 or more coaching sessions, which can be packaged with other offerings.

Job Preparation Workshops

A range of 90-minute workshops provided by an experienced organisational consultant and careers coach. Ideal for groups.

  • Identifying Career Drivers and Anchors: A career anchor is defined as: ‘A pattern of self-perceived talents, motives and values that serve to guide, constrain, stabilise and integrate individual careers.’ (Schien, 1985). This workshop explores the unique patterns of personal strengths and career anchors as drivers for job satisfaction and stability to assist in identifying the best fit of potential new job roles.
  • Identifying Transferable Skills:  This workshop explores each individual’s own toolkit of skills and strengths and finds ways to apply a Growth Mindset to focus on the positive contributions they can bring to new roles. Regardless of someone’s history or experience every adult has valuable skills that can be developed and articulated as work-ready, transferable skills.
  • Resume Writing: This workshop takes a different perspective on the art and science of effective resume writing. As well as applying current best practices to formatting a meaningful resume, it also explores how to write powerful achievement-based descriptions and a resume that is easily adapted to fit any new role.
  • Interview Skills and Practice: A key part of each of the above-mentioned tools is to secure an interview for the desired role. This workshop explores what to expect in interviews and how to build the necessary skills to effectively respond to interview questions. Most importantly, this program offers individuals and groups the opportunity to practice these skills with meaningful feedback on performance to build their confidence and hone their skills.
  • Developing a Powerful LinkedIn Profile: As a useful addition to resume writing, this workshop looks at the key building blocks of creating a meaningful profile on LinkedIn. Participants will also learn how to build an online presence through regular engagement with the platform.

Stephanie Hunt, Human Resources Consultant - Storyful

“Katherine presented to our team of 40 staff at our annual staff symposium and it was absolutely fantastic. Katherine was engaging and really helped all staff members relate better to each other. We were so impressed we wanted her back for a conference of 150 medical practice managers which also went really well. Very happy with the resources provided by Associated Employee Assistance Providers who helped arranged both the above plus follow up articles. Highly recommended.”
