Whilst the advice given on these sites is comprehensive and valuable to any
job searcher, being able to talk to someone personally can always be more
beneficial. Talking to close friends or relatives can prove more of a hindrance
than a help because of their intimacy to you but by meeting someone impartial
they can provide objective support whilst understanding your personality. An
understanding of your needs, dreams, fears and aspirations is integral if you
are looking for career support with an objective viewpoint.
A poll issued by the Guardian Jobs revealed that 79% of people think that
paying for a career coach is a waste of money but when stuck in a rut or facing
a challenging job search a career coach can lift your spirits and confidence and
put you on the right route to career success.
A recent PCS poll showed that 55% of job searchers believe it will take over
3 months to find their next position with 34% of these believing it will take
over 6 months. By enlisting the help of a career coach you can cut your job
search by half and land you a role which gives you real job satisfaction, which
is something a recruiter can never guarantee.
PCS offer all candidates the chance to meet with one of the country’s leading
career consultants who will review your CV and give a free evaluation of your
career to date. If you are searching for careers advice on the net then why not
arrange a meeting at your nearest PCS office.
Making the right decisions for your career is one of the most important
factors in enhancing your job satisfaction, so making sure the advice you
receive is specific to your individual situation will have a lasting effect on
your career and in your personal life!
