Has it ever happened to you that you left a job interview with the thought that you could have done better? That you could have supported yourself more and projected a better professional image during the process? Job seeking holds a lot of secrets. Katheti’s new service “Counseling for job seekers” aims at supporting you in this effort. Career Counselor and CIPD Chartered Human Resources Manager Vangelis Tartarakis collaborates pro bono with Katheti in order to transfer his knowledge and experience to people who would like to evolve in the way they are looking for a job.
Internet offers more and more job searching options, but this is not enough. This process acquires good preparation, that is not limited to diplomas and qualifications. Self-presentation in an interview and the building of a comprehensive CV play an extremely important part in the positive outcome of job searching. However, experts in the field tell us that this is only the beginning. A good LinkedIn presentation, looking for the more appropriate for us work positions, where we send our CV and accompanying letter are usually terra incognita for most candidates.
Through a series of four (4) personal sessions, job seekers will develop skills such as self-presentation, CV building and LinkedIn presentation, as well as knowledge about who is the best people to send their CV to and the appropriate content of an accompanying letter.
“Counseling for job seekers” compliments Katheti’s Career Guidance, Mentoring and Coaching services. They are elements of the personal and professional development program “Life & Career”. Participants must be or become members of Katheti.
