Not everyone relishes the idea of the day when they have to look for another job, whether this is by choice or because we can no longer fulfill our role due to illness or injury. This can be a very daunting and stressful time. At Advantage Injury Management Services we provide Job Search Assistance, where we provide a tailor-made program for you to enable you to learn the necessary skills to be successful in looking for work. In this program, we work together to improve your job seeking abilities- it is a team effort and we do not look for work for you. Looking for work is now your job!
We start with the basics- finding out what you want to do, your ideas about where you want to work; the income you expect etc.; and provide guidance as to realistic job options given your skills and experience.
Following this, we will provide you with information on how to develop your own resume and cover letter and get you actively applying for work! In getting a person to be actively involved with their job seeking journey, we believe that we are teaching them skills that they will use for the remainder of their working life. This way you can control what is said about your skills and experience- after all you are the expert in what you do and writing your resume is the best way to sell yourself!
Finally, once you are actively job seeking, we will provide you with support and assistance along the way, even conducting mock interviews with you to increase your confidence and provide feedback on your responses.
C’mon give Job Search Assistance a go! You may be pleasantly surprised!
