Now accepting applications! 
Extended Deadline: Applications due October 12, 2022

Join a cohort of professionals looking to advance to the next level in their careers. Led by GlobalEd Consultants with decades of experience, the program includes:

  • Individual consultation and coaching
  • Leadership Portfolio development
  • Resume editing and support – we will transform your resume to stand out from the rest
  • Two small group coaching sessions to refine your job search strategy and your opening story
  • Practice interviews

The fall cohort is for early career or beginning professionals in the field, or college students/college graduates. The progam begins October 20 and runs for 10 weeks.

We are looking for early career professionals for this fall cohort. You should be at entry level or with 3-5 years of experience in the field. Recent college graduates or current college students welcome!

Individual Consultation and Coaching
You will have one 60 minute session with a GlobalEd Consultant. We’ll focus on telling your story and finding a “hook” – a repeatable, genuine, meaningful encapsulation of your reasons for advancing in the field. We’ll then focus on your specific skills and abilities, and how to powerfully articulate these on your resume and interviews.

Leadership Portfolio Development
We will next focus on building your Leadership Portfolio – on what projects have you demonstrated leadership abilities and skills?  What is your vision?  How can you effectively communicate that vision to others? We will develop an online portfolio on GlobalEd that can include your resume and showcase your projects to potential employers.

Resume Editing and Support
We will focus on resume polishing, editing, and formatting to best convey your professionalism, expertise and narrative to potential employers. Strong resumes are clean and focused, with a clear narrative and supporting experience and evidence.

Two Small Group Coaching Sessions
Learning from your peers and cohort is often the best way to “test drive” your narrative and resume. We’ll use these sessions to workshop your story, skills, and leadership abilities, and to improve each others resumes. We’ll also discuss current job search strategies and identify current job openings.

Interview Practice
Finally, we’ll conduct a mock interview in which you can practice your new interview skills and ace the interview process.
