Career Coaching Tip of the Week: Build Confidence

Building Confidence in Your Client

Many of our career coaching clients contact us in a state of bewilderment; they are unsure of how to write a value-laden resume or LinkedIn profile; they do not get selected for positions after multiple interviews; or they are uncertain of the value they offer a potential employer.

I tell all of my clients that I am their Drill Sergeant – I will keep them accountable; and I am also their Cheerleader – their Chief Motivational Officer (CMO).

One of the key things that I do as a career coach is motivate and build confidence in my clients. By asking them the ‘telling and tough questions’ (query and brainstorming) to learn about their accomplishments and major achievements throughout their careers, I am able to draft resumes that prompt the response:

“Wow! I did all that! I look pretty good on paper!”

A well-written, value-laden resume chock full of accomplishment stories and specific examples of achievements is a giant dose of confidence for job seekers. And, the same accomplishment stories that are carefully scripted for a resume, are the same stories that will be used for networking and the interview process.

Build confidence in your career coaching clients during 2016!
