We offer a service that starts as soon as you place your order and finishes when you end your career. We offer career coaching services that last for life. We have been offering this service since April 2001 and lawyers & law students we coached then still get back in touch for further assistance as and when they need it.
The coaching process starts with a 2 hour one to one consultation with Jonathan Fagan, tailored specifically to your individual requirements. If you are having problems getting through job interviews we will spend some time practising your interview technique. If you are feeling stuck in your current job and looking at alternative options we will spend the time considering these. Every client has different needs and we tailor the session accordingly.
After we have finished the two hour session we provide you with a written report (and feedback on interview technique if relevant), any other work we have agreed (for example your CV prepared, email addresses provided, your application forms reviewed) followed by unlimited careers & CV support for life.
Each session also includes:
- Unlimited CV & Covering Letter Reviews
- Unlimited Application Form reviews
- Careers Report with feedback and advice
- Copies of our CV & Interview eBooks
We cater for solicitors, barristers, legal executives, trainee solicitors, overseas lawyers, practice managers, support staff, LPC graduates & students, BVC graduates & students, GDL graduates & students, LLB graduates & students, A Level students, overseas students, career changers and entrants to the legal profession from all walks of life.
