The elements of the challenging job market in 2009 have evolved into a "new normal" of job search in 2013. The characteristics of our clients remain the same: bright, eager to be productive, well-qualified, and with high standards. These young men and women simply run afoul of a job market which promotes anonymity over personal contact, requires on-line applications that receive computer-generated acknowledgements if one is lucky, uses algorithms and key words for initial follow up, and finally, relies on selection criteria that are often mysterious and inconsistent.
The results of this situation manifest themselves in several ways: disappointment and discouragement by the graduate; dismay by the parents that the high tuition they have paid doesn't yield more personal attention from the college or employers; and a sense of frustration that the young adult will have to settle for "anything" (meaning underemployment at a commensurately low salary) just to get a job. Add to this scenario student loan debt, and the start to a productive professional career and decent living standard seems elusive. Campus2Career Transition Services will help you identify your ideal career path and land your all-important first job on that path through our customized, six-step program.
Our clients reside throughout the United States and seek employment in the U.S. and abroad. By working with the Campus2Career team, clients learn how to market themselves on paper, via the telephone, and in person. The end result is one of life-long value creation: our clients are equipped with the skills necessary to succeed throughout their career.
Together the C2C coach and the client develop a process and a framework for college graduates to work with to move into the right career. Our six-step program delivers a complete solution, including assessment and identification of an ideal career path, job search coaching, interviewing, negotiating and accepting an offer, and ongoing career consulting. Our engagement doesn't end until our clients land their ideal job.
A quick Google search will reveal a blizzard of competing job search support services. Most offer a menu of items to pick and choose from: résumé help, networking advice, job boards, assessments, and more. What they do not offer are results: employment in your field of choice (even if you don't know what your "field of choice" is yet!). Don't take our word for it -- check out our testimonials from happily employed clients and their relieved parents.
Frank Schroeder's presentation, "Career Launch for the Millennial Generation" at the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Chamber of Commerce, May 2011
"During our daughter's transition from college grad to first-time employee, she and Frank worked as a team to develop a job search strategy and the
appropriate tactics necessary to land her ideal job. All parties appreciated Frank's perceptive and caring approach during the entire process."
