"Invisible Barriers to Your Success and How to Move Beyond Them"

There are certain critical stages of professional development that are crucial to growth and success but are often off of people’s radar.  When they do not occur, the result is a professional plateau – you remain stuck at that professional level  and will not move into higher level work or greater prosperity in your business until you master these stages.  I call them invisible barriers because they are usually completely off people’s radar.  In this lively, fun, interactive workshop, we will look at some of these barriers and how to effectively move past them.  They may be impacting how you are managing your job search.  Led by Sharon Teitelbaum, Executive and Career Coach.

Job Search BRIDGE Method - I - Interviewing

I will give a general overview of the Job Search BRIDGE Method.  You may have heard about the Job Search BRIDGE Method or have seen a presentation in the past, however, the entire BRIDGE Method takes about 16 hours to complete and I have not shared many of the exercises within the method, yet.

What is BRIDGE? BRIDGE is an acronym for the six components that make up a successful job search strategy.

  • B – Become clear about the type of position you are targeting
  • R – Research the possibilities that exist in your new or current field
  • I – Identify and Inventory your personal & professional assets
  • D – Develop relationships
  • G – Get a Game Plan
  • E – Execute and Evaluate your Game Plan

 What BRIDGE can do for you:

  • Help you best articulate the type of position you’re looking for
  • Help you develop a strategy for tapping into the hidden job market
  • Help you reduce the amount of time it takes to get hired
  • Help you get more interviews
