Career Transition Counseling

Since the downturn in the energy market I have helped many top-tier oil and gas professionals with landing that next career move. Many are shocked with how hard it is to get hired in today’s market, but it is doable providing you are competitive and you can highlight the skills and experiences that you can bring to that next employer.

I have talked to numerous professionals who said that they have never had to apply for a job, or even look for one! We use to have such a competitive labor environment that skilled professionals had to turn down weekly calls from professional search consultants such as myself seeking someone like them. Much has changed since the boom times of $100bbl. Why Is It So Hard to Make a Career Move? Consider:

Personal Career Consultation:

It’s important that we meet in person to either discuss why you want to make a career change. We will have an honest discussion of why you want to leave your current situation, why you haven’t been able to find a new position on your own. We will talk about the culture you are seeking and just what seems to be missing for you. And, I help you identify your skills, which I have found that many professionals have a hard time identifying what they are good at and their key achievements.

It is nice to speak with your spouse, significant other and friends about your career, but they will have a different perspective I will have for you.

Professional Branding

The term branding has long been relegated to companies, but today almost every individual has a personal brand and most of us have not consciously cultivated these brands, but they exist nonetheless. There may not be much difference between personal and professional branding, but from my perspective, your professional brand is what matters to a potential employer, networking contact, or anyone who can help you find a job or grow your career.

We start with developing a Professional Resume, then a Professional LinkedIn Profile.

Job Search Strategies

The Colorado labor market is very competitive and one of the most important job search strategies you can use is make sure that you stand out from the competition and show the hiring manager that you are a candidate who should be selected for an interview.

Continued Consultation Throughout Search:

I will continue to work with you throughout the interview process and employment offer stages. We will discuss;

Cost and Guarantee
