Career Change and Strategy for Individuals

Career Change and Strategy

Our work together to design your new career direction may include the following Phases.

  • Phase One: The Big Picture Life/Work Overview
  • Phase Two: Branding and Strategy:
    Who are you now, how do you fit into the current market and how do we articulate that?
  • Phase Three: Marketing Strategy and Outreach:
    Getting you out there. Going to Market.
  • Phase Four: Follow up and Call back Strategies

Here are some of the areas we can focus on in our strategy session to help get your creative career where you want it to be.

 

The Upward Move

Been passed over for a promotion or a raise? Want to stay where you are but not sure how to plan your ascent?

Get Me Out Of Here

Lets plan your exit strategy and figure out the right place for you. What part of the industry? What kind of position? How can you re-brand and revitalize your career path?

But What I Really Want To Do Is…

Direct? Produce? Write? Act? Open a business? Retire? Or just simply love your life and your work and getting up in the morning.

Resume/Bio/Demo Reel

Is it time to overhaul your resume? Do you need a bio? Cover letter? Have you updated your reel? Which of these things is relevant for you? Has it changed in the past few years?

Project Review

Which projects will you focus on next year? Which projects went stagnant this year?

Business Plan

How will your project or business become or stay profitable?
