Leaders; Job Search Strategy and Acquisition (L-JSS)


Designed for Leaders and Leaders of Leaders:

Leadership Competencies, Value Theme, Value Proposition, Strategic Positioning Statements, CV, LinkedIn and Go-to-Market: (5 hours)

This integrated program is designed for business and people leaders who wish to be positioned to secure their next career step.

Exploring leadership domains and value creation you'll demonstrate key skills and the experience required to satisfy senior level appointments.

Over a period of 5 x 1 hour sessions we'll work with you to shape your Job Search Strategy - equipping you with tailored marketing assets such as your CV, LinkedIn profile and job interview techniques to capture the attention of recruiters and ensure you're comfortable with challenging leadership assessment and appointment methodologies.

Whilst each module is structured in its delivery, the solution is designed to flex to meet your needs - whether it's via face to face or video conferencing.

We also offer to video all of your coaching so you can review your coaching sessions online as many times as you like. This has proven to be very popular with our clients and a powerful way of recalling the process, reflecting on key areas, and re-capturing the essence of your coaching sessions in your own time.

    What we’ll cover at our first meeting:

    The first meeting will primarily be around discovery, learning more about you and introducing you to the first two MyCareerBrand tools - the ABC and CV template.

    You will also be introduced to the core of our point of difference for you – the concept of Benefits and Business Case Value Proposition Development.

    With your coach, you will work through the foundation tool (ABC) and a sample CV. Both of these tools will be available for you to develop the first draft of your CV prior to the second session.


    A set assignment to complete the ABS and Draft CV prior to the next meeting. You’ll use both tools for this assignment.


    2nd Meeting: Finalising Your CV (1 hour):

    Your second meeting is generally scheduled one week out from your first and will also be for 1 hour.

    Scheduling can be adapted to suit your own needs and availability.

    24 hours in advance of this meeting you will send your completed ABS and CV assignment to:

    2. Content for LinkedIn

    3. Value proposition theme articulated and understood.

    You will also have homework following this session.

    3rd Meeting: Go to Market Strategy and Tactics (1 hour):

    Session 3 will usually be scheduled one week out from session 2 or to suit your own timelines and availability.


    1. Go to market

    2. Introductions to recruiters (if appropriate)

    3. Cover Letter Template (if not provided earlier)


    4th Meeting: Interview Skills (1 hour):

    This is an opportunity to set yourself up for potential interviews and hone your interview skills through a one hour coaching session with an experienced interviewer. You coach will take you through a series of questions aligned to the type of role you'll be applying for. Throughout the session you will be provided with feedback so you have the opportunity to apply key learnings as you go.

    1. Interview Coaching 

    2. Online secure video of the interview for your review

    3. Follow-up call with your interview coach to reflect on and assess the coaching session.

    Follow-up Meetings: (1 hour)

    At your level we know the road to securing a new role can take longer than more junior roles. It's important that you stay on track. Included in your programme is an additional hour of follow-up to assess how you're progressing and if strategy and job application re-alignment is required. These sessions tend to be more informal and may be over a coffee. Or if you'd like to have a more formal meeting in our office we can accommodate that too.

    Alternatively - and very popular with our clients, we can use the hour to map your successful on-boarding to a new role.
