I’m Connie Hampton and I help you find your next career step, mentor, or business partner.
Today the average time a job lasts is about 2-5 years. Executives frequently move to a new job at the 4 year mark. Sometimes the companies don’t last that long. Most graduate schools don’t teach networking skills and we are left trying to figure it out by ourselves.
Job search is hard work and scary, especially if you don’t have a plan or you don’t start until after your last job is over.
It takes far longer than you expect and you need help staying buoyant in the process.
I’ve done enough job search over the years that I started to study the process – what works, what doesn’t and how have things changed in the last 10-15 years. I’ve learned that a job search really is a sales job but you only need to make one sale (every few years).
On the other hand, you do need to be marketing (networking) all the time.
When I found a job as a recruiter, I found my passion. So, of course, I’m constantly networking and marketing to find new clients, new openings and new candidates.
I’ve honed the process of job search networking and personal branding and marketing. I’ve helped many great people learn how to find jobs. Many have gone on to find each next step in their careers – using the skills they learned from my classes, products and book.
Imagine the relief of knowing that you have a plan you can use.
You will take control of your career, learn the ways to build your particular career network and maintain it, use it to find jobs, partners, mentors, etc. for yourself and others in your network.
