Do It Right The First Time

Often in your interviews with companies, you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. That’s why it’s important to have your act together. That includes working with you to refine your two minute elevator pitch so you can quickly and effectively describe yourself and your accomplishments, proofreading your resume to catch the typos which can jeopardize your chances and helping you navigate quickly through the maze of information out there.

You can find a lot of information online and in career books. It’s easy to get confused with this mass of conflicting tips and tricks and suggestions. Everybody seems to have some advice for you! Worse, the large amount of information available online and in books has a hidden agenda – to get some visibility for the writer! The writer’s goal is to appear knowledgeable and wise by writing articles which give tips and tricks to people on every conceivable topic.

The coach or mentor should be able distill the most useful and practical insight from all the available real-world knowledge, and then create a systematic and practical step-by-step approach for your success.
