Career Connexxions will provide the necessary collaboration, advice, direction and support in the development and fulfillment of the following components of your Career Transition Plan.

  • Assess your current situation.** What are you currently doing in school or for work? What are your skills and interests? What are your strengths and weaknesses? What are your career goals?

  • Research potential careers.** Once you have a good understanding of your current situation, start to research potential careers. This includes researching different industries, occupations and job titles.

  • Network with people in your target field.** Networking is a great way to learn more about a potential career and to get your foot in the door. Talk to people who are already working in the field you are interested in.

  • Create a job search plan.** Once you have all of your ducks in a row, it's time to start your job search. Develop a plan that includes:

    • Generation of resumes

    • Creation or enhancement of LinkedIn profile

    • Creation of cover, application and follow-up letters 

    • Development of a networking strategy with contacts and letter content

  • Prepare for interviews.** Once you start getting interviews, it's important to be prepared. Learn about all aspects of the company, including its industry, products, competitors, finance, culture, etc.

  • Negotiate your salary.** Once you have an offer, it's time to negotiate your salary. Do your research and be prepared to negotiate.
