Boerne, Texas (PressExposure) February 20, 2009 -- Mary Elizabeth Bradford, AKA the Career Artisan, recently premiered a unique service called the Career Artisan Mastermind Coaching Group (CAMCG) to help job seekers in every phase of their job search.
"I finally found a way to offer my tactical job search coaching to a wider audience," said Mary Elizabeth. "The group coaching concept is brand new for the careers industry. In fact, I have seen nothing like it."
Now job seekers can receive expert-level career and job search help for a fraction of the cost of hiring a private career coach. Private coaching typically runs between $100 and $300 per hour.
Clients sign up for group coaching on a month-to-month basis, so it fits each job seeker's need and timeline perfectly. Live coaching group calls on critical job search topics are hosted twice monthly. Clients call in to a private, members only bridge line and can bring their questions with them to receive laser coaching on their particular challenge directly from Mary Elizabeth. Since participants do not meet in person, they can choose to reveal or conceal their identity, depending on their personal preference.
Other members-only benefits include email days for private questions, a members only group forum for (optional) networking, support and exchange of ideas, complimentary resume critiques, a host of downloadable templates and how-to guides, members only access to pre-recorded coaching calls on hot topics including: social networking, instructions on successfully using the hidden job market, secrets to working with recruiters, how to answer tough interview questions, job offer negotiations techniques, how to get focused, how to successfully change industries and how to network without having to ask for a job, just to name a few.
"For a job seeker to have access to this level of help and resources at this price-point is an irresistible combination," said Mary Elizabeth. "It's an elegant balance of high tech and highly personal service. The fact that a job seeker can enjoy and benefit from the group no matter where they live makes it incredibly easy and economical, too."
The "mastermind group" is a well known concept for harnessing the power of a group of people who share a common goal. It serves to pull group members forward, enabling them to reach their goals faster and easier vs. trying to do it alone.
"I have new group members that have shared with me that they have been looking for a job for a year or more and knew they had to face the fact that trying to go at it alone with limited resources wasn't working for them," said Mary Elizabeth. "Most of these job seekers are mid-to-senior-level professionals who thought job boards or recruiters could help them land a job. They are truly relieved when they realize there is a faster, easier and more effective way for them to manage their job search and enjoy great results."
