… how to approach the job market through a multi-tier plan, key aspects of successful interviewing, which types of jobs to focus on etc. I received a number of job offers [and] Tara advised me on which opportunities would suit my skillset better and therefore have a higher probability of long term job satisfaction and career growth.
Civil / Project Engineer
I was able to find a job in less than 30 days that was more suitable with my career goals.
It took me exactly a week to find a job I really wanted. Not only that but profile views on LinkedIn increased by 30% giving me confidence of my achievement and allowing me to connect and extend my network.
Business Development Executive
When one’s age is 50 plus most industries have a prejudice against employing the aged. My interview requests quadrupled and, within two days, I found a Business Development position, with a global company, that paid 6 figures plus.
My profile went from zero for my target role keywords to 1st position and quick contact from recruiters. Its also good to have a supportive adviser alongside.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
