The career management program is a three-step process that can help you secure a job, promotion or further professional development. Our personalized coaching strategy coupled with peer-based seminars provide a tailored training experience and a comprehensive, long-term professional development plan.

The stages of our Career Management Program are as follows: 

  • Stage 1: Exploration - During stage one, you assess your personal strengths and professional compatibilities. This process is very valuable if you’re considering a change of careers or industries.
  • Stage 2: Planning and Research - Stage two is all about building. You've done your personal assessment, have a sense of what you'd like to do and now it's time to build and prepare for the job search. Key competencies in stage two include identifying target industries, roles and beginning the search process. You will also focus on skills such as résumé-building and networking.
  • Stage 3: Job Search - With clearly defined career goals, appropriate job attributes and job search skills – you are ready to run. The primary goals of stage three are to conduct the job search, obtain a new job and successfully enter the new position or organization.
