Greater Purpose & Fit in Your Career
Can you find greater purpose and fit in your career? Robert sure did.
Robert was already very successful in his career. He was extremely accomplished with a dreamliner load of awards under his belt. Over a couple of months, he had been headhunted for a couple of roles but he wasn’t happy with the roles he was getting shortlisted for. He didn’t want to continue as a regional Business Development Director doing the same thing in a new company. He wanted to spend more time innovating and providing strategic guidance – perhaps as a Chief Strategy/Innovation Officer.
Personal Branding is not just about you. It's also about what the market wants.
When we examined his experience, he was more than qualified but the market appetite for those roles was slim at the time and he wasn’t willing to relocate. So, instead, we created a profile in Operations/General Management with a strong appeal for companies looking to innovate or reformulate their strategy and deliver market-leading results.
We don't do touch ups at Angled North. When we say rebrand, we mean it.
He selected our full service and through a 5-hour coaching session, we extracted valuable information to strengthen his new career direction and help us build his CV, LinkedIn profile etc. We also worked on his elevator pitch to clearly communicate his distinct value and provided him with the leverage he needed when negotiating.
Why Should You Remain Stuck?
After interviewing for a couple of roles, he landed a new role a few months later. He now works as MD for Africa for a multinational.
- Self awareness is critical. Take time to determine what you want before seeking out recruiters and hiring managers – who they first meet is the impression they go by.
- Hiring managers and recruiters are busy so what they read and hear (in an interview) needs to impactful and well synchronized. Everything must be like a well-oiled engine.
The right partner can help you get unstuck in a shorter time than trying to Google your way out of your predicament.
