CAREER THOUGHT LEADERS (CTL)
NEWS & EVENTS

OCTOBER 8 | Certified Hidden Job Market Coach Training Program

Job search takes a toll on client confidence, motivation, and follow-through. Job seekers apply online and don't hear back, which confirms their fears and slows their productivity.

We tell them to network and they reach out to a contact, have a meeting, don't get a job right away, and decide it's not worth the effort. And the cycle continues...

Are you looking for tools to pull job seekers out of the unending cycle of online applications and self-sabotage?

The Certified Hidden Job Market Coach (CHJMC) program offers a structured approach to job search planning, networking, and proactive search. During this 6-week virtual class, you'll learn how to improve job search strategy, hone your coaching approach, and structure your services so candidates land jobs faster.

Delivery: 6 virtual classes (webinar), 1.5 hours each, for 9 hours of training PLUS 30+ done-for-you worksheets you can customize for your business.

ICF Credits: 4.5 ICF Core Competency credits when you join the live classes!

Classes will be recorded, and you will have lifetime access to the recordings and materials.

Learn more and register.

OCTOBER 10 | Registration Closes for Social Branding Analyst Certification

Leadership, career, and branding coaches have a growing opportunity to help clients expand their thought-leadership, build and nurture their network, and achieve their goals.

By providing a proven process and social media plan, coaches also have an opportunity to deliver a long-term value proposition with confidence in the value they deliver and land more of their ideal clients.

Are you ready to differentiate yourself in the marketplace and transform your clients' social brands?

In the Social Branding Analyst certification program, coaches will learn real-world strategies and get new tools to help clients craft an integrated social media strategy built around the differentiation, power, and value of a personal brand.

You'll walk away ready to:

  • Overcome client overwhelm by clarifying social media goals aligned with their brand
  • Transform social media results through the development of consistent messaging
  • Attract your client's target audience with a strategy informed by research and best practices
  • Communicate your unique value to achieve your career or business development goals

We've made the program more robust … meaning more value for you, including:

  • Lifetime access to use the 360Reach survey
  • Coaching plans to guide clients in using any of the top social media channels (LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram).
  • Case studies and resources for working with entrepreneurs, business owners, leaders, job seekers, and more!

Registration closes October 10!
