EPISODE 38: How to Transition Careers Even During A Rough Economy

.

WorkWith Me

Quick Q for you…

Have you ever felt confused about where to go next in your career?

Maybe you know where you want to end up or what you want to do but have no idea how to get started with your job search.

Have you been applying for 100’s of jobs to no avail?

Imagine no longer feeling lost and confused about your career, finally having a plan to follow, a strategy to help you get to where you want to go.

Picture yourself confidently attending the interview and salary negotiation because you have done your research and know how to speak about your accomplishments adequately. Hiring you should be a no-brainer.

If you can imagine it but have no idea how or where to start, I can help.

I’m a career strategist with over ten years of experience in corporate recruitment and HR. I’ve helped hundreds of clients achieve their career goals, from landing their dream job to getting promoted and crafting fulfillment in their professional lives.

And while you may feel like –

  • Your network is essentially your family/friends
  • LinkedIn is not your vibe
  • An imposter or not as qualified (especially if English is your second language)
  • Getting a high-paying job is a numbers game

Here’s the good news:

Applying for a new role and waiting to receive your job offer letter for your dream job doesn’t have to feel like you’re playing the lottery!

Because having the 6-figure job mindset and prioritizing quality over quantity in every part of the application process will help increase your chances of getting a callback.

Not sure where to start?

When we work together to tailor your job-searching strategy, you’ll discover how to:

  • Stand out to recruiters and hiring managers
  • Present high-quality resumes and job applications
  • Prepare for your next job interview
  • Practice negotiating without any fear of doubt
  • Advocate for yourself

Are you ready to find the right corporate role that’ll help you reach your personal and professional goals?

Here’s how I roll:

I like to get personal. As in, understanding exactly where you are in your career journey right now. I like to know what you’ve been struggling with and where you want to go.

Based on that, we put together a personalized plan to get you on track to get your new dream job in less than a year.

When we work together, you can expect to –

🎤Be Understood. Say goodbye to those blank stares you get when someone doesn’t understand something you said.

🎤Get that job. Or promotion. Or a pat on the back. Don’t miss out on those well-deserved job opportunities.

🎤Feel Confident. No more anxiousness before an interview or during pay negotiation. I can help you become an advocate for your self-worth when it comes to asking for what you deserve!

P.S. I know what it’s like to start from scratch. I immigrated to this country without connections and had to learn the system from the ground up. I also had to break down my mindset barriers and learn to believe in myself to know I deserve to be in the rooms I started entering. I’m here to help you do the same.

What People Are Saying

Coaching Intensive
“Prior to working with Eddiana, I truthfully wasn’t receiving interviews. I thought I was doing everything “correct” on my LinkedIn profile, resume/cover letter, and interview skills. But Eddi opened my eyes to the abundance of insider tactics that only highly experienced and reputable recruiters would know. She elevated my resume to a high caliber, tightened my interview skills to ensure I portrayed an authentic, empowered version of myself, and instilled a sense of confidence in me that I was struggling to maintain in a discouraging job search. I received a job offer within four weeks of working with her and successfully negotiated my salary!
- Kimberly T.
Coaching Intensive
“I came to Eddiana thinking something was wrong with my resume but as we got to coaching she made me realize that nothing was wrong as I was receiving interviews, what we worked on was my interview skills, I was not coming across as an expert and was not successfully expressing my value. Eddi is truly invested in her clients; her willingness to to be an engaged coach and mentor speaks volumes about her passion for helping people in their professional journey. I got two job offers after working with Eddiana."
- Annabella R.
Coaching Intensive
"I honestly didn't know where to begin. I've always felt that I didn't know how to job search properly and that I would be wasting my time but working with Eddiana has taught me how to confidently job search and how to go into an interview feeling confident. Eddiana is really invested in the people she helps. I trust her opinions and advice and she's given me the confidence to know my worth when it comes to picking the 'right' job for me. I got a job very quickly using Eddiana's coaching tips and advice, and best of all, I doubled my salary."
- Brooke S.
Coaching Intensive
"Watched a YouTube video of Eddiana explaining how you don't need to have all the experience on the job description, and I was hooked. I booked a call, and I was hired at an amazing job making amazing money 6 weeks later. I was working for myself for 5 years and was worried all of my applications were being overlooked because I was out of 'corporate America' for so long, but Eddiana helped me write a resume that translated all the experience I gained on my own, and wow I am so happy I invested in this service."
- A. N.
Coaching Intensive
"I worked in a non-profit for most of my career and did not know how to get out of it. I loved the work I was doing but was being severely underpaid, Eddiana coached me to not only land the job but to negotiate with ease and confidence to a six-figure job in less than 8 weeks."
- H. V.

@careersinreview comment “VIP” and you’ll be added to the waiting list for the salary negotiation and script guide that I’m releasing in January. 

“Thank you so much for for the offer. I’m excited about this role, the team and the company. The base salary is lower than expected/originally discussed, and based on the years of experience I bring on [specify on area tie it to the role skills] I’d like to reanchor the conversation that I’m looking for a number closer to XYZ, I’m very interested in the role and would like to know how we can work together to get us closer to this number.” 

The best way to have leverage during these conversations is to have other options lined up. 

Practice before you have this conversation. 

Consider other compensation aside the base salary. 

Salary conversations are one of my favorite topics. Drop your questions below 👇🏼

@careersinreview the secret to negotiation when it comes to your salary…

Is, there is no secret.

Those “comments” truly don’t matter. 

Could they hurt you a bit if you’re in a conversation with a really experienced recruiter? Maybe.

Sometimes good recruiters (the truly good ones) only want to know the number that will make you happy.

But the tricky part is hard for you as the job seeker to know who are the good ones. 

So I get it, let’s prepare you for the scenario where you’d get someone who might want to get you for cheaper 😣

Yes, you shouldn’t volunteer how much you currently make. 

So here is how you can safely navigate this:

🔥give a range, a big one, and take advantage of total compensation talk. 

✨it’s not all about base salary, so when you give a number and if it feels too big for you be sure to mention at the end “total compensation”

👏🏻salary negotiations are very personal because it’s going depend on how much reliable information you have and how much leverage you actually have at the time of negotiation. 

So although it doesn’t technically really matter, to be safe stay away from saying those things, come prepared, be ok with talking about money 💰 

You got this! 

I’m creating a $FREE.99 guide all things money (salary negotiation) when it comes to all milestones to your career. 

Comment “VIP” and I’ll add you to the waiting list for when that’s ready in January. 

This resource comes with 10yrs of experience negotiating salary on both sides of the table, negotiating base, benefits, titles, vacations, equity, and more. 

It’s gonna be LIT 🔥

✨the job market continues to be dumpster fire 🔥 

And the career advice I see continues to be less reliable.

The more “clickbait” and outrageous the claim the more likely it is that is not true. 

Some jobs might not make it to a job board but that would be the very minority of the cases not 80% 

Adding the job description in white font to your resume is an old trick that has now been picked up by recruiters, not a risk you should be taking. 

You can reach out to recruiters and HMs, do it strategically, apply for the role first, you need to comply with the rules. They can’t consider you if you’re not an official candidate.

I can’t believe I’m going to say this…

But you have the right to walk away, repeat after me, you have the right to walk away!

A lot of career content creators (myself included) talk about the things you should avoid as a job seeker so you don’t show red flags to your future employer.

But what should you do when the employer is the one showing the red flags? 

Here is what you can say when you’re encounter with these scenarios:

🚩Not sharing salary after multiple attempts: “unfortunately I’m unable to continue in the process without understanding the compensation structure and salary range being offered for the role…”

🚩Illegal questions: “I rather focused on talking about the professional aspect of my background and joe my skills can serve this role…” 

🚩Lengthly projects (not compensated): “here is a sample portfolio of my work which will showcase the exact same skills and will answer the same questions as the project proposed for this project.”

🚩Exploding offer: “I understand the urgency here, I’d appreciate reasonable time to evaluate the offer in writing and review so I know I’m ma liking an educated decision”

🚩no shows or too many reschedules:”unfortunately it appears this role might not be ready to be filled at this time, I’ll be withdrawing my application from consideration.

I’m working on something super exciting to help you prep for your interviews if you want first dibs follow the instructions below. 

Comment the word “GUIDE” and I’ll send you the pdf with preliminary information, once you sign up you’ll be the first to know when the new resource come out 🤪

I know y’all don’t want to hear this, but it’s the truth.

Al is not yet the one rejecting or selecting the candidates/ resumes that will move forward.

Because the one company that tried it got sued big time and the technology is not ready for it yet, so it has not happen vet.

So please for the love of god stop believing people that have no experience in hiring, people who have never seen the back end of a hiring applicant system.

The job market is tough right now, so you might doing all the right things and still might not be seeing results, time will be the determining factor here.
