Your Next Job Consultant
Job Search Assistance
Job searching can be one of the most time consuming and challenging elements of finding a new job. You must have an effective search strategy that rules out jobs you are not qualified for, or that aren’t a good fit for you.
Our Job search consulting can help you do just that. For instance, we’ll analyze your past work experience, qualifications, skills, and future goals to find the right job opportunities for you.
Job Seeker Training
It’s hard to get a job when you don’t have the skills to qualify. We can help your job search improve drastically by helping you get the training you need beforehand.
We’ll help determine the job skills you need and then where you can learn these skills. New skills will help you get hired and begin a new job with confidence and assurance.
Search & Interview Strategies
It’s not every day that you interview for the job of your dreams, but when you do you want to impress and wow. Knowing what to say and how to say it is just part of the deal.
We’ll coach you through specific practical interviewing advice, and common sabotaging mistakes. Learn to focus on your strengths and prove why you are the best candidate for the job.
It’s one thing to mention jargon and keywords. It’s another to talk about the results you can expect from the work we’ll do for you. On average, here’s what you can expect after our sessions together.

Startup: Days 0 – 3
When the contract is signed Helianthus Advising will begin by setting up all the files that will be needed to complete and deliver the work. In addition, we will conduct a total audit of all websites and social content. We’ll present these recommendations during the first session.
Session One: Job Searching Basics
Start your consulting off right with a complete overview of your current online presence. Learn how people (those hiring you) learn about you and why that’s important when you apply for a job. From there, we’ll cover the basics of starting a job search – knowing your goals, background, going over expectations, and looking for the right jobs.
Session Two: Perfecting Your Resume & LinkedIn Profile
Before we dive too deep into interviewing and getting jobs, we’ll take a look at your current resume and LinkedIn profile. You’ll learn the basics that make a resume readable by both computers and agencies – and why you should always have two. In addition, we’ll look at what makes a LinkedIn profile “top notch” and what recruiters are looking for when they find you.
Session Three: Professionality On The Searchable Internet
Your past is searchable and now is the time to make sure you know what others can find. Diving deeper into basics learned in session one, we’ll cover how hiring managers find information about you, what you should do, and how you should take matters into your own hands. In addition, we’ll look at how to create a “professional brand” across all social media accounts – and what not to post.
Session Four: Mastering Any Interview
Now that you’ve created your professional brand, resume, and LinkedIn, it’s time to learn how to master any interview. Learn how to maintain individuality and personality while giving answers hiring managers want to hear. Practice answering questions “live” to see how you perform under pressure. Learn what to ask a hiring manager that will both impress and give you knowledge about the company.
Session Five: Dressing Your Best & Negotiating
Long gone are the days of only wearing black suits to interviews. In this last session, we’ll focus on how to dress for the interview while keeping who you are visible. In addition, we’ll cover clothing mistakes to avoid as well as “reading the room.” Finally, we’ll cover negotiations and answer any questions you may have left.
