Chrissie Carl is an award-winning recruiter, people leader, and former partner sales executive at Microsoft who specializes in helping leaders advance their careers and accelerate their job searches through career planning and job-search preparation.
Chrissie helps smart, ambitious female leaders accelerate their career transitions through:
- Clarity - Defining career direction by aligning their values, passions, and strengths for an accelerated, momentum-building job search.
- (Re)Framing - Identifying and developing key components of their narrative to define, uniquely brand, and position themselves for the next step in their career.
- Confidence - Grounding them solidly in self-assurance that comes with adequate job-search preparation so confidence, poise, and passion can shine through during all phases of their job search.
- Standing Out - Differentiating themselves online, on paper, and in person to stand out among other qualified applicants and to get and keep a leg up on the competition.
- Negotiation - Taking the steps necessary to create leverage and employer willingness to pay at the top of the scale to get her client to sign.
Finding a job takes skill, especially the higher up the ladder we move or the greater our desired career change.
When we know what we're good at and what we want to do and can clearly articulate both, others are more inclined and capable of lending a hand.
People tend to get stuck at one of three job-search stages: 1) application, 2) phone screen, 3) or interview.
Successful people who are struggling with their job search are usually missing one or more of the following: a clear direction, a unique brand, a compelling narrative, confidence, or a job-search plan.
- Most job seekers mistake an updated resume for adequate job-search preparation.
When we have a job-search plan and are executing against it consistently, we feel more in control of the process and our emotions which is reflected in our poise and progress.
A good career coach is worth the investment. They can help us transition to a (more satisfying & fulfilling) job or career and potentially a (larger) paycheck (sooner than we can going it alone).
