Career changes by choice
TKFay’s Women in Career Transitions series is designed to equip women who are changing careers and/or re-entering the workforce with the tools, skills, and confidence to manage their job search. Participants learn to evaluate their current situation and determine how to create a career path by choice rather than by chance.
This program is extremely interactive. We use lessons, exercises, self-assessments, skill assessments, and role plays that allow the learner to practice new skills using real-life situations
Based on individual priorities and interests, TKFay customizes each Career Transition program to the client. The basic building blocks are six core segments, each of which addresses a specific, career-related topic.
Of course, men experience transitions as well, and TKFay can adapt this program to counsel men through career changes.
- Career Transition clients receive a workbook used throughout the program.
- Principles and skills are presented in an interactive lecture format.
- Exercises help reinforce and demonstrate the material.
- Participants practice new skills using real life situations.
The Career Transition program and its elements can be adapted to meet the specific needs of groups or individuals in job transition. If the workshops are offered as part of a corporate outplacement program, the process starts with a needs analysis. TKFay then tailors the program based on the organization’s and individuals’ needs. We also recommend a pilot program to management or other leaders involved in the job transition process, to ensure that all the necessary components are in place before introducing concepts and standards to trainees.
Pricing depends on the amount of customization. Travel expenses, the needs analysis, and the pilot program are not included in this pricing.
TTKFay uses the MAPP (Motivational Appraisal for Personal Potential) assessment tool as an option to help guide, motivate, and empower people in career transition to achieve their educational and career potential. TKFay uses MAPP’s output to help clients identify career options, prepare value-based resumes, and highlight transferable job skills that can be marketed to a variety of industries.
