How Senior Executive Clients Find Jobs
The Unpublished Job Market
- 60-80% of all jobs are rarely advertised
- Jobs are often filled internally without being posted
- Informed job seekers network their way to the hiring manager
- Some jobs will be filled by job seekers who present themselves to their potential boss before HR is even aware of the need
- Less competition - easier to stand out
- Less interaction with applicant screeners
- TBG provides tools that align with job market demands
- By leveraging TBG’s methodologies, you beat the competition
Senior Executive Service For Your Next Career Step
Our 5-step proprietary methodology comprises:
- Clarity Program©
- Personal Branding and Campaign Development
- Market Access to Hiring Executives
- Preparation for Interviews and Offer Negotiation
All 5 steps are executed by a team of 7 specialists led by a career consultant dedicated to you.
Step 1 – Clarity Program©
You know you want a change, but you are still unsure in which direction it should go.
The Clarity Program© is designed to improve your own self-knowledge, to help you be more effective, to avoid career obstacles, as well as to validate what is important to you not only professionally, but also in your whole life.
Your strategic plan both for work and for your life, and a better understanding of your behavioral profile.
More than 90% of our clients rate the Clarity Program© as “excellent.” It is also available as a stand-alone service.
Step 2 – Personal Branding And Campaign Development
Junior HR people or algorithms assess most resumes. They are unable to properly evaluate your skills, so your resume loses value.
Define and align your value proposition. Quantify your value to the specific audience / employer. Eliminate the generic and broad-based resume by ensuring the reader views you as a perfect fit.
Understand how to tailor your value proposition to each opportunity via resumes and cover letters; upgrade your LinkedIn profile. Use clear milestones for each stage of expanding your social capital and enhancing your brand’s influence.
Step 3 – Market Access To Hiring Executives
Three quarters of new executive searches are executed via the unpublished market but approaching the hiring executives with cold calling is simply not effective.
Identifying industries and companies in the locations you desire. Executing The Barrett Group’s social capital strategy and leveraging referrals – backed by our proven social capital methodologies, research tools and experts.
The contact information for key decision makers plus scripts and strategies to secure interviews and offers.
Step 4 – Interview Preparation And Offer Negotiation
How can you be well prepared to expertly respond to tough interview questions? And how should you negotiate the offer in a positive and respectful way while not leaving money on the table?
Identifying critical gaps and potential pitfalls, such as whether your experience is truly transferable. Anticipating tough interview questions and developing fluid, authentic responses. Through role play, we equip clients with practical interview experience that ensures they will perform at peak performance levels during live interviews.
We help you create a pipeline of interviews, improve your interview performance, obtain more and better offers, and then improve them through negotiation.
Step 5 – Onboarding
How do you get off to a good start in new, unknown territory? How can you identify the needs of key stakeholders? How will you prioritize all of them? How could interdepartmental politics affect your performance?
We find the first 100 days are critical for future success and we want all of our clients to get off to a good start. This is where we can help with onboarding, ensuring a happy landing, including planning ahead and how to manage and prioritize stakeholders.
The deliverable is your onboarding plan, an evaluation of the organizational landscape that includes an analysis of functional interdependencies and coaching to get it right.
