Career Coaching for New College Grads

Job Search is Tough

New College Grad
Too often new college grads do not know how to conduct a successful job search.

Today’s new college graduates are entering a job market that is difficult to break into and for getting a career off to a great start. They are finding intense competition for entry-level job openings that are on a professional track.

Upon college graduation, over 70% of students do not have a job. Studies show that 53% of recent graduates are unemployed or underemployed.

This means that too often new grads struggle to put their major to use and to be hired by an employer in their field of interest. And too often their job applications get little employer interest, if any. As a result, too often they do not land a job that is right for them.

Another factor is that most recent grads simply do not know how to effectively job search and it can be very tough if they do it all on their own. It can be very discouraging, frequently leading grads to reconsider their career paths.

Now more than ever, recent college grads can benefit from professional help to launch their careers.

How Robin Works with New Grads

Robin requires a brief conversation BEFORE she schedules any new grad for counseling. She will determine exactly where you are in the process of launching your career and how she can best help you.

She is ready to provide Career Coaching to help you decide your career direction — and Job Search Coaching to help you land the job.

When you know what kind of job you want

You need guidance to navigate the complexities of the job search process and Robin will teach you the most effective job search tactics that will enable you to land the job you want.

Robin finds that many new grads say that their resume is not getting calls for interviews, which means that the resume is likely in need of an overhaul. Many college career centers are ineffective in helping students create an effective resume.

Robin will create a new resume to emphasize your strengths and skills to enable you to capture the interest of an employer. She will create a targeted, customized cover letter too.

LinkedIn is essential since so many recruiters are looking for new grads on it these days. Robin will develop your LinkedIn Profile and show you how to best use LinkedIn to get discovered and network with others.

She’ll work with you to create a list of employers to target.

Robin will prepare you for job interviews. She will coach and role-play to teach you how to answer tough questions and how to convince an employer you are the person to hire.

“As a computer science major, my parents were shocked I ended college with no job offer. Then I worked with Robin and employers started calling me. Because of her assistance, I just launched my career with a top company. Thank you Robin!” — Kim M., Software Engineer 

Directional Program Option

If you’re not sure what to do with your major or degree, you need a high level of guidance on how to launch your career and navigate the job search process. This session is to determine your career direction and this may require an extra session depending on the student. Robin has developed The Ideal Career Workbook, which will be the foundation of your counseling sessions.

To achieve the goal of a satisfying career path you need someone who understands the world of work to assist you in assessing what you’re good at, what you like, and then guide you to make better career decisions.

Robin will review your key strengths and offer career directions and insights as you two explore options. You’ll discover which fields, jobs, and industries would be best for you and what education and job-hunting strategies are needed to pursue those careers.
