For select individuals seeking to supercharge their career transition, position themselves for advancement within their current employer or market themselves for board service, TDG offers a six-week Career Transition Boot Camp (CTBC). This one-on-one consulting program is tailored to each participant’s strengths, goals and opportunities. The candidate will be empowered to both recognize and utilize his or her capabilities to differentiate him or herself from the competition.
At the conclusion of the CTBC, the participant will be in superior shape to conduct interviews and network effectively. S/he will depart the Boot Camp with a professional resume, a compelling elevator pitch and a crisp career narrative. The candidate’s digital presence will be reviewed and edited to reflect his/her positioning. Additionally, the participant will have a clear sense of his or her abilities and what makes him or her attractive to an employer or board
Session One: The participant presents his or her life history, and we delve into a previously completed questionnaire. TDG will provide coaching and direction on how to make the narrative crisper. Together we will identify strengths, weaknesses and areas to focus in the professional narrative.
Session Two: The participant presents the professional narrative rehearsed in the first session. After the presentation, TDG provides coaching and direction on how to make it even more polished. Together we identify strengths, weaknesses and areas to highlight in the Executive Summary section of the resume.
Session Three: We review and edit the draft version of the Executive Summary the participant prepared and make the first rounds of edits on the resume.
Session Four: We spend the entire session on the resume, reviewing and enhancing the edits made since previous session.
Session Five: We rehearse the elevator pitch. Additionally, we’ll review the participant’s digital presence to ensure it supports his or her professional image and goals. We identify 1-2 professional opportunities suited for the participant.
Session Six: We conduct mock interviews based on the opportunities identified in the previous section. We finalize the elevator pitch and the longer professional narrative
