Description

This course is perfect for those just leaving school, college or university and embarking on their first career, or equally for those who are more experienced but in need of a change. You will learn:

  • how to identify the right career path for you, based on your unique blend of values, personality, interests and skills
  • what employers are looking for and how to match your experiences to the skills they require
  • the ins and outs of our unique Talent Tracker Tool, and how to build your own personalised version
  • the art of selecting which of your achievements and experiences are most relevant to the role

This is a critical first step in making sure that the positions you apply for are the ones most suited to you, the ones you are most likely to get offered and the ones you are most likely to love once the role is yours.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is aimed at school, college and university leavers who are looking to launch their first careers, and those with experience who are looking for a career change later in life.

Beyond Campus Founder and Head Coach

I have 20 years experience in the corporate world leading and developing teams of people. Key parts of my role have been coaching and developing individuals on their careers, interviewing hundreds of applicants for junior to senior management roles and designing and running assessment centres. This experience, alongside my own career progression, gives me a unique insight into what secures a job offer, the common mistakes almost everyone makes at interview, how people stand out and what makes them enjoy their jobs. I'd love to share all this knowledge with you, so that you too can launch an amazing career. A career you will love.
