Motivation

Your resume and job search documents are critical to your success. They represent you — conveying your strengths and interests to employers. They are honest and contain facts that you can back up.

These documents are often the primary way you’ll introduce yourself to employers. They will need to make a positive impression quickly — since they are often reviewed in less than 30 seconds! We can help.

Your conduct, your interpersonal skills and your ability to articulate intelligent and well-thought-out responses to questions are the most important elements.  In an interview your attire plays a supporting role.

In addition to meeting with you on a regular basis to assess your progress, MS. D The  Job Coach will be available on an “as-needed” basis to help you evaluate workplace situations, troubleshoot career issues and develop workplace strategies.

Just like a football coach works to get his team fired up and excited during halftime, a good job coach will help you stay focused and motivated on your job. He will listen, recognize positive strides and remind you of the progress you’re making. A good coach will also help you correct behaviors and processes that are not serving you well, and help you establish new approaches to career issues when your original plan is not working effectively.

For you to be successful in your career means you need to be motivated about your work, skills and ability to move forward in your profession. A good job coach will help you identify what you’re doing well and assist you in capitalizing on your strengths. At the same time, a job coach will point out your weaknesses, or areas in which you need improvement, and help you develop an approach to bettering yourself in key areas.
