It’s one thing to seek out a good, or even great job. But have you clearly defined your “dream job”? That end-goal or industry where you want to be?
Whether you’re a new graduate, or a seasoned professional, it’s never too late to go for that dream. Sometimes, you just need a little help to point you in the right direction. If you’re feeling stuck or unsure of the direction you want to go in your career – interview coaching might be a great fit for you.
Learn Your Strengths
Interview coaching forces to you clearly define your strengths and weaknesses – both as an employee, and as an individual. When you use the TopScore System, we actually have you list out your top strengths in different areas. This can be eye opening for many job seekers.
For example, you may be in a data analytics, but feel very strong in public speaking. A shift to a communications field may be a better option for you. Listing your strengths helps you to identify where you naturally fit within various industries.
Identify Your Personality Style
In addition to your professional strengths, your personality plays a major role in which jobs will be a good fit. For example, if you’re not a natural “people person”, a job in sales is probably not going to give you a large amount of satisfaction.
Interview coaching helps you polish aspects of your personality that may come off as abrasive, and helps you adapt to different industries. As you go through coaching, you’ll find that certain scenarios just fit more naturally for you. This means you’ll likely fit in a lot better in that industry or company culture.
Gain A New Perspective of Potential Employers
When you go through interview coaching, you have to view yourself through the eyes of a prospective employer. More importantly, you have an objective third party giving you feedback on your personality, delivery, and communication style.
This can be invaluable if you’re not sure about which career path to follow. After all, the job you take needs to fit you as much as you need to fit in with the culture of the industry.
By investing in interview coaching, you reduce the need to take random jobs to “find yourself”. You’ll have a clear direction that will allow you to focus your job search efforts toward an industry or area where you feel strong and would like to grow. This is a win for you, and for your prospective employer.
Most importantly, interview coaching will make sure that you make a great impression when you find the opportunity for that dream job!
