4. How to Look For a Job While You Still Have One, Then Leave Gracefully!
Not interested in a coaching package? No problem. Purchase this guide and consider working with Lawyer Coach Paulette later on.

One of the best times to look for a new job is when you already have a job. Currently-employed jobseekers are perceived to be more desirable by some hiring managers than unemployed jobseekers.

Yet there are drawbacks to searching for a new job while you’re still in your old one. The biggest concern is if your current employer finds out you’re looking. 

This 19-page guide contains:
  • 13 tips to not get noticed on LinkedIn (including screen shots)
  • 20 do's and don'ts to conduct your confidential job search
  • Practical information on how to leave your job and write a resignation letter.
$45 + HST

Recently, I contacted Paulette for her assistance in tweaking my résumé to make it stand out for upcoming articling applications. Her coaching gave my résumé the ‘edge’ that it needed. She made it her mission to help rework the layout, and content to reflect authentically my skills and experiences. To do this she utilized a unique brainstorming process to transpose my thoughts onto paper. I especially liked how Paulette used a white board during our session as a visual map to facilitate improving word choices and recalibrate the résumé structure. An exceptional quality of the service is that this was not merely an editing task where the client is disengaged. Most importantly, Paulette empowered me by ensuring my involvement at every step in a collaborative approach. Paulette’s significant experience within the legal industry and her creative approach to problem-solving helped me produce a résumé of which I am truly proud.end-quote
