The first step is to sign up and create an account. From here, you can choose whether to start with the first activity for free, or gain full access to the paid program, which includes all levels and activities that will help to build your career.
Want to Do - The Initial Stage Of The Program
This initial stage of the program is designed to help you develop a more precise awareness of what holds the most value for you in regards to your career as well as what types of tasks engage and excite you the most. With this knowledge and the assistance of scientific models, we will help you to explore and define the type of industry, company or even specific role that will suit you the most. We will also teach you about company cultures and career structures to aid you in the search for your ideal job.
Using a range of coaching activities, we will help you to explore the various aspects of a career that you deem to be meaningful, fulfilling and give you a better idea of what you want to achieve in the short and long-term. Our coaching techniques aren't just for highlighting the positive thoughts and feelings you have about your career; it's also beneficial for bringing uncertainties and concerns to the surface so that they can be dealt with later on in the program.
Can Do - The Second Stage Of The Program
The second stage of the program, 'Can Do', is vital for your career path as it encourages in-depth self-reflection and an appreciation for your skillset that lays the groundwork for the rest of your professional life. Here, we use psychometrics (also used by recruiters) to work closely with you to discover your strengths, natural abilities and uncover any hidden talents that can be transferred to a professional environment. We will also make role recommendations and point out any areas in which you could develop your skills.
This stage not only provides you with a more well-rounded view of your strengths as a professional but also gives you the ability to demonstrate your value to potential employers. Knowing how to speak the language of HR is a vital talent for future interviews and adopting a more strategic mindset towards job selection and choosing a career path to suit your needs.
Taking Action - The Third Stage Of The Program
As you can probably guess from the title, this is the stage where we use our research and preparation to create a personalised, strategic approach for how to pursue and achieve your career aspirations. Often it's a lack of direction and goals that makes the career path so difficult for young, hungry professionals.
Fortunately, our program is designed to provide actionable goals that are based on the data from our tools and resources. With this plan, you will not only have tangible goals in place to give you the motivation, and a visible path to follow but also find ways to include aspects of your career path that you are still unsure about. Every opportunity and inkling of potential is explored to ensure that you receive the most beneficial career advice. For each goal, we will observe your progress and take action. As you gain confidence and progression becomes easier, we will help you to implement a growth mindset that allows you to tackle any confidence issues that may hold you back.
Ongoing Support - After Your Course Is Completed
CareersKitchen isn't your average job coach; we care about your long-term success and ongoing progression. Therefore, we feel that it is essential to offer a personalised support system for the entirety of the 12 month membership period. With this, you will have access to additional resources such as interview guides, and also the freedom to reach out to our team for continued support and affordable coaching sessions. We are continually scheming and creating new ways to help our users, so keep an eye out for new features as and when they are released.
