StartingBlock Career Services has been working with college grads and entry-level professionals since we opened!
As we gather information from our college grads and entry-level clients, we often hear:
“I’m scared I don’t have the right skills.”
YES, YOU HAVE TRANSFERABLE SKILLS! You’ve gained skills during summer jobs, part-time jobs, and projects. You just don’t know how to communicate them. Ellen Steverson’s conversational approach and genuine interest in what you have done allows her to gather your information so you can discover the skills you have to offer employers. She will help you recognize the hard and soft skills that you already have that employers want. Not sure what hard and soft skills are? Another reason to work with Ellen, she will educate you along the way and throughout her process. Ellen Steverson leverages her knowledge and understanding of what employers want to write your resume, LinkedIn, and cover letters. She can teach you more about what hiring managers need and want so that you can be better prepared when interviewing and starting your new job!
“I don’t know how to look for a job; my college made it seem like I’d graduate and offers would just come to me, or a job would be waiting.”
YES, GRADUATING AND FINDING A NEW JOB IS FRUSTRATING & DAUNTING! Ellen Steverson is passionate about continuing her work with new grad/entry-level professionals because she remembers thinking at her graduation ceremony, “So how do I get a real job?” Her school didn’t have a career center either. If you ask her, she’ll share her crazy story about hiring her first NYC resume writer and why she so passionately helps future leaders. Ellen Steverson has worked with hundreds of college graduates. She is sought out and hired by colleges and universities to speak on resume writing, LinkedIn, job searches, and interview strategies.
The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that Americans will change jobs on average 12 times. Let StartingBlock Career Services position you for success now and as your career progresses.
“I don’t have a college degree, so I don’t know what jobs are available to me.”
AT STARTINGBLOCK, WE BELIEVE THERE ARE ALL DIFFERENT PATHS TO SUCCESS. Ellen Steverson has helped many people find great jobs and apprenticeship programs so they can start and progress in their careers. Not everyone graduates from high school and goes on to college immediately. As mentioned above, Ellen Steverson works with each client to determine the skills you do have and can offer employers. Coaching can help you discover jobs and career options, along with other training, certification, or apprenticeship programs that may be available. When you are motivated to have a great career, having a career expert to guide you will help you understand your options so you can make wiser career decisions.
