Donna’s job search focus was to find a job within the interior design field. However, very quickly into our conversation, she also shared that she wasn’t sure of what she wanted to do. Here is how we worked towards best outcomes for Donna:
- Self-assessment worksheets that helped her identify values, interests and skills as it related to her life goals
- In-depth work and reflection on job criteria, expectations and identifying successes from past experience
- Thorough research to identify knowledge and gaps about potential career paths
- Individualized marketing plan to identify action steps
PROMARK Advantage: PROMARK Services helped Donna identify a hidden opportunity by going after a position that did not exist. She initiated this plan after purposeful networking, learning and researching about potential needs of the employer and developing a job description to solve their immediate problems. She presented the job description to the hiring team, and was able to influence an offer.
Big Result: Donna also finalized a contract to make greeting cards (her life-long passion) for the cancer wing in a local hospital.
Donna’s comments: “I have learned that a job search is NOT about finding an open position and sending in an application…I would not have had the courage to go after my dreams (greeting card business) without your help and support.”
