It's an interview not an interrogation
⛔️ The complicated applications, the long drawn-out interviews, and all the ghosting, can leave you feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and doubting your ability.
⛔️ Employers seem to want to hire unicorns. Competition is fierce. The online process is unfamiliar and anonymous.
⛔️ You rarely get constructive feedback, so you don’t know what you’re doing wrong.
⛔️ You don’t know how to stand out in a crowded job market.
✅ What if you had someone to help you through the entire process, from figuring out what makes your skills unique, all the way through to negotiating your salary?
✅ What if you were part of a discrete and supportive community of communications professionals, going through this experience together?
✅ That’s why I created Get Hired!, tailored specifically for communications professionals like you.

“This course was a life changing opportunity for me and it absolutely delivered on supporting me get back my confidence, and to better reassess my personal brand and commitment to the work I actually want to do as a practitioner.”

Why you?

You’re a communications or marketing professional with years of experience, eager to land your next job. But you’re stuck!

You’re finding the application process unfamiliar, overwhelming and totally anonymous.

You’re a great match for the job description, but don’t know how to stand out amongst hundreds of applicants.

You’re getting interviews and have been the runner-up a few times, but there are no prizes for coming second.

Without honest or constructive feedback, you don’t know if your CV or interview technique is any good.

You’re feeling demoralised. The application process is draining your energy and your confidence.

“Vicki has been a light at the end of a tunnel, while I’ve been navigating a lack of confidence and a bit of a crossroads in my career. Thanks to her I’ve got back direction, confidence and clarity. Worth every penny, thank you.”

What’s inside Get Hired!?

Vicki Marinker candid career coach
All of the content you need is online, and available to you as soon as you sign up. My videos and workbooks will guide you through the modules.
Complete each module in order, and learn at your own pace.
Once a week for four months, we’ll have live group sessions for up to 90 minutes on Zoom, which will include coaching, training, accountability and lots of time for Q&A.
Wherever you are in the course, you can bring your questions to the group sessions. You’ll learn from and share with others in the group, who might be at different stages.
When you’ve completed the 16 weeks within the group, you will continue to have access to the online content, and can stay in the WhatsApp group for as long as you like.
The course contains these modules:

You’ll identify your values, your work motivators and what really matters to you, so you know exactly what type of job you’re aiming for. And you can stop ‘spraying and praying’, and get really specific in your job search. I will show you how to get feedback from your professional network about your skills and strengths, to prepare you for the next module.

You’ll dig into your skills and strengths. Combining what you know about your skills, what other people have said about you, and your values, I will help you develop your USP. What makes you unique as a candidate? This will form the backbone of your elevator pitch, the opening statement on your CV, and your LinkedIn profile.

You will start working on an Evidence Framework to help you tell your story to potential employers.

A masterclass in writing a CV that stands out, satisfies any automation tools hiring managers use, and ultimately gets you the interview.

I’ll show you how to create an all-star LinkedIn profile page that attracts your ideal employer.

Now that you have created a compelling shop window (your CV and LinkedIn profile page), it’s time to boost your visibility, connect with potential hiring managers and demonstrate your expertise (in a non-braggy way).

You will learn how to work with recruiters, hiring managers and talent acquisition teams. We will look at the hidden job market and how to network to influence the hiring process in your favour.

You will learn how to use your Evidence Framework and the CARL method of answering competency based interview questions. I’ll provide you with all the questions you could ever want to ask the interviewer, to help you understand if this is the right employer for you.

Looking for a new job is hard. I will share my techniques for keeping a positive mindset and staying motivated when the going gets tough.

Still have questions?

Mid to senior level communications and marketing professionals looking for their next job. This programme isn’t appropriate for people outside of communications or associated disciplines, and isn’t right for you if you’re early on in your career.

£749 + VAT (total £898.80), to be paid in full before we begin.

I do not offer refunds as standard for this course.

There is no magic pill. If you follow the guidance provided and make the most of our coaching sessions, you will have all the tools and techniques you need to conquer the job market. But I can’t do the work for you, you’re the one doing the work.

This programme is for communications and marketing professionals who are looking for their next role. One-to-one coaching will be more appropriate if you’re looking for a career change.

Coaching calls will be weekly for 16 weeks. If you can’t make it to the live sessions, they will be recorded. You will have lifetime access to the course materials.

As soon as you sign up, you will have access to all the content to go through in your own time and at your own pace. You will get the most out of the programme if you can go through the modules in between our weekly coaching calls. But your lifetime access means you can watch the videos and complete the workbooks when it suits you.

Maintaining confidentiality is crucial for the success of the group coaching experience. Everyone in the group will sign up to our coaching agreement and a code of conduct, which states that we respect each other’s privacy and treat all information with the utmost confidentiality.

I am an ICF ACC (Associate Certified Coach), a CTI (Co-Active Institute) trained coach, and a Licenced Firework Career Coach. I started my career in PR, followed by 23 years in PR & comms recruitment. I have over 400 hours of one-to-one and group coaching experience, and am a LinkedIn trainer and Top Voice for Careers & Job Search.
