What is the Butler program?
The Job Search Butler program was created based on the successful experiences of over 2,000 people I have supported through over 15,000 coaching sessions throughout my career. Designed to help executives and leaders with already busy schedules in their career transitions, this program offers our clients a high-level and unique service.
The Job Search Butler is our ultimate program, in which we work for you on your search for a new opportunity, leaving you to focus on your current tasks and missions, professional obligations, or simply enjoying life. Some of our clients are too busy to dedicate time to their career change, while others just don’t like the whole process and paperwork involved.
With a project team specifically dedicated to your case and focused on your success, we take care of the crucial tasks of a job search so that you can choose your best option within the desired timeframe. From rewriting and formatting all your usual communication tools to contacting your next employer through one of the personal assistants available to you to arrange meetings and interviews, we are committed to conducting your job search even better than if it were our own, with more resources, particularly human resources. This means more time spent on your search than one person has in a week and more commitment.
This is our role: to develop a strategy, document, implement and operationalize the search as a communication project. Your job search is managed as a project.
And you, in all this?
Your main tasks will be to provide us with the information we need to provide you with our best service, to follow our coaching so that you can perform well in your own “missions”, mainly by talking to the right people and participating in interviews and meetings. You will also have the opportunity to follow our progress. Here are the general guidelines we will follow to optimize your journey:
Step 1: Help us get to know you.
The first interview with your Butler will be based on all the documents you have provided, such as your CV, your LinkedIn profile, your notes, etc. Our goal is to better understand who you are and what you can bring to a company. We will submit various questionnaires to better understand your experience, technical and social skills, qualities, and values. This will allow us to define your Value proposition, your language elements, and more broadly your storytelling.
Step 2: Determine your objective
Based on previous discussions, we will determine with you a realistic and achievable operational career objective, in professional terms of course, but also, why not, in terms of preferred work environments. To do this, we will consider your life goals (personality test), what makes you happy (psychological preferences questionnaire according to Carl Jung), and your cultural profile (cultural profile questionnaire according to Geert Hofstede). Administering and debriefing the various questionnaires will allow us to better understand you (and you will certainly learn your own lessons from it) and thus further personalize our project.
Step 3: Define and activate your target market
Defining the type of companies to prioritize and your geographical areas of search allows us to search for a list of approximately 100 companies (excluding those to which you may have already applied) and submit it to you. Once you have validated these criteria, we organize interviews with people holding positions of responsibility within these companies, such as CEOs, COOs, CHROs, HR or recruitment managers, General Managers… according to your profile. We also organize meetings with the top ten headhunting companies in your search area. And of course, if appropriate for your profile, we register you on relevant job offer platforms and conduct our own watch and service proposals for the most suitable job offers.
Step 4: Create your communication strategy
This step is actually very intertwined with the previous steps. In connection with the definition of your objectives, we set up a communication strategy to improve your image before the interviews. We modernize and optimize your profiles on social networks. We create your personal website, including your own domain and professional email address (example: email@example.com). We manage your professional accounts on social networks and increase your visibility by publishing messages and articles that highlight you. Finally, we coach you on the 6 dimensions of national cultures so that you can deepen your understanding of the facets of local companies and cultures and use them to communicate better.
Step 5: Become a networking master
Equipped with everything you need to convince companies to use your services, you must now get in touch with the right people. We expand your network of useful contacts, especially within the list of companies you have chosen, by connecting you to 10 to 15 people every day. We establish a list of networking events suitable for your search and profile and organize your participation, whether online or in person.
Step 6: Get hired
Once your schedule is filled with meetings and job interviews, the next step is to convince them. We provide you with intelligence reports on each company with which you have a scheduled interview. We prepare you for individual or group interviews, focusing on influence techniques. We follow up on your interviews and consider the necessary boosts for a decision in your favor. Finally, we accompany you in your job taking.
