1-2-1 Support €225 (4 hours of 1-2-1 online support)
Usually used for job hunting, the package is flexible around individual needs and is delivered as one 2 hour session, followed by two 1 hour sessions. In the first session we may cover possible career choices / transferable skills, optimising a CV, effective job hunting and application forms - helping the individual build up an action plan of job hunting activity. The session will also look at LinkedIn if relevant.
Following on, the 2 remaining hours are delivered separately and focus upon interview preparation and in particular competency / behavioural interviews which are used by 60% of interviewers according to surveys. We also look at more standard questions such as What are your strengths? Weaknesses? Where do you see yourself in 3 years time?
How does it work?
The individual receiving the support needs to be able to log into a web browser. We use Skype mainly with also the option of using WebEx. If the individual being supported has a Skype account we contact them on it. If they don't have an account, we provide access to one of our Skype accounts emailing the login and password in advance which they log into online through a standard web browser. Their computer doesn't need to have sound or a working camera, as if no sound, we ring them on a landline or mobile so we can talk together. Once logged in, we share our screen and they can watch as we alter their CV, demonstrate job hunting, help update LinkedIn or social media, or prepare for an interview. All highly effective and equally as good as if we were sat beside the individual.
1-2-1 Support €300 (5.5 hours of online support)
The above package can be upgraded to include an extra 1.5 hours of remote support that is used as interviews start to occur. The extra time allows the individual to consult with their trainer as live interviews happen, letting them gain interview specific advice and further guidance. This time can be taken in blocks of time rather than all together so several interviews may end up being supported.
Full Day Online Support €495 (equivalent to 8 hours of online support taken in blocks and includes 4 weeks remote telephone support)
The programme includes up to 8 hours of 1-2-1 online support using screen sharing facilities via Skype or WebEx, delivered over several sessions. The technology enables us to work on documents or surf the internet just like we would if sat together. For most individuals we will look at areas such as CV production, career transition, job hunting, interview preparation, self-employment, or focus upon specific areas such as assessment centres. Our support is tailored to individual needs and may include other areas such as retirement planning.
After these initial sessions we then provide unlimited access to your consultant for up to 4 weeks so that further guidance and support can be received.
Online Pathfinder €825
The programme includes up to 16 hours of initial 1-2-1 online support taken in blocks of time using screen sharing facilities via Skype or WebEx. The technology enables us to work on documents or surf the internet just like we would if sat together. For most individuals we will look at areas such as CV production, career transition, job hunting, interview preparation, self-employment, or focus upon specific areas such as assessment centres. Our support is tailored to individual needs.
After these initial sessions we then provide unlimited access to the consultant for up to 6 months so that further guidance and support can be received.
WORKSHOPS / GROUP SUPPORT
Online Workshops / Webinars €655 for up to 15 people - Job Hunting / Self-employment / retirement planning
Should you wish to run group sessions we have the online workshops option using WebEx. These can support common training needs such as job hunting, CV writing, interview preparation, self employment, and retirement planning.
Online Job Hunting Workshop
To encourage questions from attendees, we restrict numbers to 15 people per online workshop. Over the course of a day we deliver 3 x 2 hour sessions. The first session is on job hunting, the second on optimising a CV, the third on interview preparations. We cover traditional and internet job hunting including areas such as working recruitment agencies, networking, LinkedIn, using CV databases, and job board search engines.
A key part of having a positive interview is to predict potential questions and prepare set answers. As part of our support we will show attendees how to predict potential areas of questioning and suggest questions attendees may be asked. We focus upon competency / behavioural based interviews, interviews where people are asked to provide examples of what they have done, now used by 60% of interviewers. In addition, we show how to prepare for questions such as: What are your weaknesses? Where do you see yourself in 2 years’ time? Tell me something about yourself? along with more general interview preparation and look at telephone interviews and now quite widely used, value-based interview questions.
Workshop follow on 1-2-1 Session €40 per person
To enhance the workshop support we suggest that each person also receives a 1 hour 1-2-1 session where we can work on their CV to optimise it or even create a CV from scratch. These are charged per session taken up.
