Soul Search Before the Job
Use assessments to uncover your natural talents
This first module is perfect for career changers! In it, participants will explore the various types of assessments available for job seekers during a transition. This module is packed with info on how to “find your way” if you don't know what you want to do, but know you don't want to do what you're doing!!
Your Career Marketing Documents
Create a resume that resonates with target employers
The second module is tailor-made for you if you’ve been sending out resumes but are not hearing back from your target audience. In this module, we will explore the science behind building your resume (including key "anatomy" for all of you biology majors) and provide you with a tutorial on how to get past the electronic eye of the applicant tracking system. You'll learn to create a polished and powerful career summary, a bulleted accomplishment that gets attention, and a cover letter that makes it insanely easy for a recruiter to ascertain your value in 10 seconds or less!
The Hidden Job Market
Uncover where the real jobs are and how to position
yourself for them
In this lesson, you'll learn why you must immediately start limiting your time spent applying to jobs online and, instead, focus on targeting companies. This lesson is jam-packed with power tools and concepts to help you structure your networking efforts, measure the quality of your contacts, and make HUGE progress in your search. (Job seekers say this module alone is worth the price of admission!) You will also learn how strategic volunteering can help make you an insider in your chosen field!
Communicating with Your Network
Cold call, email, and pitch with success
Learn how to communicate more effectively with your network. In this module, you'll discover how to perfect your pitch, send emails that get read with greater frequency, and cold call with confidence. Bonus! In this lesson, you’ll receive done-for-you scripts to help you master any cold call, regardless of who picks up—voicemail, administrative assistant, or hiring manager herself!
Job Search Resources
Learn to use headhunters and staffing
firms to your advantage
In this lesson, we'll tackle research...how to research industries, companies, and people of importance in your search. You'll learn how and when to work with recruiters (headhunters) in your search and what to do when you're ready to reach out!
Using Social Media in Your Job Search
Understand how to leverage LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest in your job search
In this lesson, we'll demystify LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and blogging for job seekers. But, this isn't just a social media 101 lesson. We'll also teach you how to manage what's already out there about you online, proactively generate the right content, and boost your most relevant branded content to the top so it's easy to locate when recruiters search for you. (Which 90% or more of the time, they will!)
Ace Your Interview and
Negotiate Like a Pro
Think like a consultant in the interview
and negotiate like a pro
In this lesson, you will learn about strategies for before, during and after the interview. Case study interviews. Panel interviews. Stress interviews (oh my!). You will learn how to prepare for an interview and how to follow up after one with confidence and savvy. Also, as a bonus, you'll learn to apply a sales approach to interview follow up that will leave hiring managers impressed and inspired! Lastly, learn key salary negotiation tricks that can add thousands of dollars to your final salary, without jeopardizing your relationship with the hiring team!

During a career transition, I was fortunate to benefit immensely from Laura’s wealth of Career Coaching expertise. Her corporate HR industry intelligence, business acumen, and proficient writing skills are ideal for anyone seeking a talented Career Coach.
Wow, what can I say??? It took me about 4.5 months to get a new job and the activity I got based on the resume, cover letter, and coaching that Laura created for me. I’m certain that this is one of the main reasons I got hired. She clearly knows her stuff and the quality of her work speaks for itself. No way I could have come with the quality of work and the suggestions she did. I could not recommend her coaching enough, she kept me on track and focused and the end results paid off. Thank you Laura! The strategies from HIRED! are the best!
Working with Laura provided my job search the structure it was lacking prior to my hiring her. The techniques she offered and her guidance during our conversations provided me with the direction that was missing in the early stages of my search!
Laura deeply understands how the hiring process works, how hiring managers think, and how job seekers can stand out from the crowd. She’s a true pro.
I have had the pleasure and fantastic fortune of meeting Laura as part of a group of professionals seeking career coaching. She is inspirational in being generous with her time, and gives her 100% to the group. Her knowledge and expertise in the field of career coaching is extensive, and she continually nudges me (and all the group members) towards getting the structure and direction that was so lacking in my job search process. Her style is warm and friendly, but at the same time extremely focused. I have yet to walk away from a session without a solid take-away nugget. Thanks Laura!
Laura is the full package. Sure she can write a dynamic resume, but she can also coach a client with how to manage today's job market. Laura has a unique ability to ask the probing questions to boil down the situation, tasks involved, actions taken and measurable results. I am returning to the workforce after 8 years. Laura was able to get me in the mindset for today's work environment and gave me invaluable tips for networking. I now have the confidence that my resume conveys my experience and expertise. But most importantly, she helped me get my game face on to return to the job market.
