Job Search Support for Recent Grads

If you are a new graduate looking for a first job, you need to

  1. Know what you want to do so that you can organize your job search around your goals
  2. Understand the basics of a job search and how to market yourself in the most effective way.

The BrownMiller Group offers career counseling services especially designed for recent graduates. Our testing and assessment brings specific career goals and job targets into focus. Coaching regarding job search strategies increases the probability of getting interviews and offers.

Like all services at The BrownMiller Group, job search support for recent graduates is tailored to what the client needs. Here are some things that could be covered:

An assessment process with testing that examines how interests, skills, and personality preferences fit different types of job and careers. The goal of this assessment is to come up with a list of specific occupations to target.

Strategies for networking for career research and also for potential job contacts. Coaching is provided about how to “talk about yourself” when networking: how to explain your skills and your interests and how to ask for the help you need.

Resume writing and cover letter development: a resume edit is provided and cover letters are explained with sample formats provided.

An overview of job search strategies and how to strike the right balance between an on-line search and more personal networking.

Interview coaching provides a blueprint of what to expect and how to prepare. Sample questions are discussed as well as how to prepare for behavioral interviews and negotiate salary and other details of potential offers.

Here are some comments from our career counseling clients

You were really the catalyst for this change and I feel that everything has gone exactly as I had hoped. I will keep you posted on my progress, but I wanted to let you know how much I value and appreciate the excellent advice and guidance you provided. You really helped me zero in on what I wanted to do and helped me with a road map to get there. Without your guidance and advice, no telling where I’d be right now.

Thanks for your continued support. After talking to you I ended up having a sense of calmness that I hadn't had all day.

Please know, in these uncertain times, you are so much more than just a professional career guidance counselor. You are a healer who knows how to gently hold shattered dreams and broken hearts in your hands. Thank you for your kind ways of empowering and motivating me to believe in myself.

I LOVE my new job and cannot thank you enough for everything. It has been the hardest thing I have ever done in my life but so worth it.
