The manual that we use in our coaching is a collection of riksted effektens’ experience in helping job seekers find a job. The manual is easy to read and understand. It is comprised of 11 “Stepping Stones”. Every step you take brings you one step closer to your goal. To make the journey towards your dream job even easier, the manual is filled with exercises, examples and methods. The methods are well-tested and have already helped many get a job –

The manual works as a tool in the job seeking process. The way to your dream job starts both inside and out. Therefore Stepping Stones 1, 2 and 11 focus on knowing yourself and personal clarification. You need to know who you are, and what your dream job is before you can begin to reach your goal.

After you begin to understand yourself, it is important to find out what you can do in practice. These are the things you can sell yourself on in an application and in a job interview. Stepping Stones 3 and 4 help you with defining your competencies and telling your success stories.

Once you’ve completed those steps, you are ready to narrow down your goals: you need to know what you are looking for and why. In Stepping Stone 5 you get the opportunity to go into detail about what motivates you and what demands you have from the company you will work for.

When you know who you are, where you’re going and what you can do, you need to be able to convince others. That is where a well-formulated and well-documented application and CV gets you onto the YES pile and to a job interview. In Stepping Stones 6 to 10 you are introduced to what works when you write an application, how to use your network and strengthen your position in a job interview.

riksted effekten hopes you enjoy working with our manual and that you benefit from using it in your job search.
