Elevate Your Career With This Underutilized SkillSep 05, 2023
"Sometimes asking for help is the bravest move you can make. You don't have to go it alone."
Welcome to September! For those in the US, I hope you enjoyed your Labor Day holiday weekend.
The week following Labor Day brings back fond memories of the new school year starting, wearing new Fall clothes, shopping for school supplies (always loved that!), and picking out a fun lunch box (ok, I'm dating myself!).
Even though I left school a long time ago and entered the working world decades back, I've always felt that after Labor Day, people come back with a renewed energy and outlook on work, thanks to summer vacations and taking advantage of longer daylight hours. Do you sense that, too?
For me, I am knee-deep in creating my 4th quarter plans and focus areas for my business, so that I can begin implementing it a month from now. Top of mind is the content I'll share with my community and how I'll support and help my current and prospective clients achieve their career and job search goals.
And ... I can't do this without you.
Will you do me a HUGE favor and take my anonymous, 2 minute survey?
I know you're busy and there's a good chance you won't take the survey, but I promise you, if you complete my survey ...
... your input will enable me to provide the exact content and programs/services that are most relevant and helpful to YOU ... and to other mid- to senior-level leaders who are looking to advance in their career, find a similar position at another company that's a better fit or re-engineer their career and do something more rewarding and fulfilling!

Unlock Your Full Potential: Elevate Your Career With This ONE Underutilized Skill
"Personal branding is not about you. It's about putting your stamp on the value you deliver to others." ~ William Arruda
Have you ever wondered why, despite your qualifications aligning perfectly with a job, you never heard back from an interview?
Or maybe you had an engaging conversation with a headhunter, only for it to lead to nowhere?
Perhaps you believed a promotion was in the bag, but someone else got the nod.
In these scenarios, it's not solely about qualifications or experience; it's about effectively communicating your personal brand, an often underutilized facet of career success.
Why Personal Branding Matters
Personal branding isn't a buzzword; it's a game-changer. In today's competitive corporate landscape, a well-crafted personal brand can set you apart from the crowd. It enables you to convey your unique value, expertise and passion to (potential) employers in a way that makes you indispensable. A strong personal brand can open doors to your dream job, high-impact projects, or even attract opportunities you haven't considered yet.
The Headhunters Call: Be Prepared
Headhunters often hold the key to unadvertised positions and exclusive opportunities. Yet, unexpected calls can be unnerving. When we work together, we'll explore strategies to ensure you're poised and ready to make the most of these conversations, even when they catch you off guard.
Mastering Interviews with Confidence
Interviews can be daunting, but they're also your chance to shine. When we work together, I share valuable insights and techniques to help you not only survive but thrive in interviews, all while staying authentic to your personal brand and values. Remember, confidence isn't about arrogance; it's about showcasing your abilities and the value you provide with grace and conviction.
My Proven Approach: The Job Search Runway™
Having navigated the corporate landscape for decades and after conducting many successful job search campaigns over the years as a way to advance in my career, I've developed a highly effective and cohesive approach to conducting an effective job search that consistently gets results -- one, and often, multiple solid job offers. You can learn about The Job Search Runway™ here. When working together, I'll share insights, examples and effective strategies for each step so you can apply these to your own career journey.
Your Next Steps
Whether you're actively job hunting or content in your current role, honing your ability to communicate your personal brand and value proposition is essential. Start by:
- Self Reflection - Identify your strengths, passions, unique skills that set you apart.
- Skill Enhancement - Consider workshops or coaching to refine your personal brand and messaging/communication skills.
- Networking - Connect with peers, mentors and industry leaders to practice and fine-tune your messaging.
- Regular Updates - Keep your LinkedIn profile, resume and other professional materials up-to-date to reflect your evolving personal brand.
Your career trajectory is closely linked to your ability to master this often-overlooked and underutilized skill. Take action now and seize the opportunities that await!

From Search To Success Collective: Landing Your Dream Corporate Role With Confidence and Intention
The Fall 2023 Cohort Kicks Off This Week!
I'm excited to be kicking off the Fall 2023 Cohort this week!
Participants can either follow along the cohesive 12-week training and implementation track or, once they complete the prerequisite exercises, they can work at their own pace, jumping around and focusing on specific areas as they please.
Support is available via 1:1 calls and weekly LIVE Q&A Support Calls via Zoom so they can receive coaching, guidance and support from me throughout their job search journey.
And, one of the best things about the Collective are opportunities to support and network with other like-minded corporate professionals who are on the same journey as you.
The camaraderie and support among the participants is so rewarding.
🎉🎉 Client success! Before joining the Collective, the participant struggled with finding the right opportunities and getting responses from their network. However, just 2 months after joining our 12-week program, they landed a fabulous offer by uncovering a job opportunity through their network and nailing their interviews. 🍾 They credit their success to acknowledging their previous approach wasn't working, embracing new strategies taught in the program and using the provided templates and powerful scripts in their job search. 🎉🎉
Here is some of the positive feedback from past participants:
"I wish I would have found you sooner! It would have saved me weeks of frustration and spinning my wheels!"
"Thank you, Audie, for the support, encouragement and validation."
"I'm so glad I found you!"
"Great feedback and insight, Audie. Thanks for your wisdom and guidance."
