Job Search Mastery Program
This systematic approach has helped hundreds of professionals, managers and executives to find purposeful and fulfilling careers. When you love what you do, your life will never be the same again.
The “Job Search Mastery Program” is a comprehensive step-by-step program to empower you to take control of the entire job search process and find you job you love and excel. Using proven tactics and strategies, you will get the job you love and no longer passively relying on job ads, company career websites and recruiters/headhunters.
This program will include deep provoking self-coaching questions, ready to use email scripts, word by word conversation starters, intelligent questions to connect with experts to gather smart information. It is designed to change how you look at your job search in a non-conventional way.
What are some of the possible current job search scenarios? Does it sounds familiar to you?
“I have many years of experience, degree holder and can accept a job that pays well. But after a few months of sending resumes to job ads and headhunters, I just had one interview with a company that of no interest to me. I was wondering whether the economy in Thailand is in trouble now. – Bangkok Times
What’s the outcome?
They continue to use the traditional approaches in their job search process. They feel they have done a lot of “productive work” like sending hundreds of resumes, contacting the recruiters or headhunters, and apply through job boards”.
And some of them accept the fact that for those who have found good jobs are lucky. And to those who have been told that they should send out their resumes to every job opening. And when it didn’t work, they decided to think it’s a bad job market out there and continue to figure it out what has happened to them.
As you can see, there is a difference of relying external sources and luck to get the job you love and to really take full control of your job search process, from the start to the end. Through my “Find Your Purpose Driven Career” program, you will have a systematic approach to unlock the hidden job market and find your ideal job.
When I started my career coaching and job search consulting practice more than six years ago, many of my clients shared their job search challenges and insights. Through their stories, I have decided to create a system to help them. Instead of giving them jobs which what recruiters do, I will teach them how to find the job of their dreams.
There are a lot of free advice on the Internet. So why should I bother to invest in your program? While you can try to google search your answers for career advice or job search and see what are the results.
Perhaps you will get tips like: Make sure your resume is only two pages long and has a lot of keywords in it. Or get into social media such as LinkedIn and create an account. You must find your passion. 10 tips to survive your next networking event, top 10 employers to work for.
You will find tons of advice and articles throughout the results, but you will rarely find the most important part in a job search process, and that is the right mindset that must be adopted in your job search process.
What it means that if you are not able to deconstruct the mental barriers within you, the strategies you have will be useless. It’s like you are building a great wall within your frame of mind. Unless you deconstruct the wall, or you won’t be able to execute the goals in finding your ideal job.
And this is why I have created the “Find Your Purpose Driven Career” program. I’m offering this special program to people who are committed to find fulfilling jobs. It’s going to be an amazing journey for those who take up the challenge. Just imagine when you wake up each morning, you’ll be happy heading to work, even all the Mondays
You might be bored and wanted to have a new challenge
You know you wanted something better than your current job
You have been working in this organization for many years and can’t see any prospect of further advancement
Your role has been changed and you no longer enjoying what you do
You feel that you have short-changed
You deserve better compensation and benefits
You foresee mergers and acquisitions that will result in layoffs, uncertainty creeps in
You are tired of the unnecessary politics and unpleasant environment
You want to try another new industry and new role
You have a lousy boss and unfriendly colleagues that create unhappiness in the workplace
The Current Scenario
You have send out 80 resumes to all the job vacancies you can find on job portals, companies websites, job ads, or even LinkedIn company pages openings etc…
You make sure that you have deposited your resume in all the job portals and resume banks you can find
You have visited all the career fairs, expos, associations, alumni to seek out for job opportunities
You have contacted and send your resumes to all the recruiters, headhunters or executive search firms you can find on planet earth
You have asked all your friends, relatives, family members, former colleagues, ex-bosses, suppliers, contractors and even your customers to look out for you if they have any suitable job opportunities
You have messaged all your LinkedIn connections, Facebook friends, Google Hangouts, Twitter Followers and other social media channels you can heard of from Techcrunch.
You searched through the LinkedIn groups and send unsolicited invitations to add random strangers, send them resumes, and hoping that they will help you to look out for any suitable jobs
You have approached all the career consultants, coaches, counsellors, trainers, experts and speakers to ask for advice, preferable free of charge
And lastly, you will check your email and mobile phone frequently if there is any invitation for interview or missed calls
You have send out unsolicited job applications to companies regardless if there are any job openings. And in your letter, you will put “Dear Sir/Mdm, Dear Hiring Manager or To Whom it may concern” – And the heading “Exploring job opportunities with your firm”
What you can do about it
You can either continue to stay in this manner or you can choose to stand out from the crowd and achieve your desired job.
The success in your career happens when you bring in the right people into your inner circle.
Outsiders will have a different perspective and have the ability to see things objectively in a way you are no longer capable of seeing it.
What your life on the road ahead is what action you are going to take now.
And once that happen, it will transform your mind with ideas, strategies and insights that would not be visible within you.
If you want to have a better quality life, then the extra effort you are putting in will be worthwhile.
Yes, you need someone to achieve success. We all do.
There are many ways you can achieve your career success.
Either you can talk to your boss, find a mentor or engage a professional for help.
The most important is you must be ready, willing to be helped and open to changes that will get you to the desired results.

This program isn’t for everyone?
After coaching hundreds of working professionals in regards to their career, I am quite selective in terms of my clients to be in this program.
My view is that I rather work with a small group of committed, open minded and determine to change their career path for the better than a big group who is not going to change anything or take any action.
This Job Search Mastery Program is not for you if:
• You are looking at a quick fix system to find that dream job without putting hard work and effort in getting it. In other words, this is not a magic system that you plug in and then out comes your dream job.
• You are a junior executive earning 2K a month and expect to earn 12K a month after the coaching sessions.
• You are jobless for a long time (Unless you have a lot of savings in your bank account)
• You have a lot of credit card debt (Your focus should be to clear off your debt. You will not be allowed into this program without clearing your debt. If I find out that you have joined in this program and have credit card debt, I will ban you from all my programs
• And the last thing is that I spent so much effort, time and money to develop this coaching program. So I am not interested to open this program to everyone, just to those who are committed to make a positive change in their life by getting their dream job and excel in it.
Who’s this program is for…
• For those who want to make a change in their life so as to live more fulfill and meaningful
• For those who want to challenge themselves to get a better job they love and enjoy
• For those who want to make a lifelong investment in themselves not only in financial aspects, but other important aspects in life.
• For those who are ready to take action to do something out of their comfort zone (Meeting experts and arrange for coffee meetings, reaching out to hiring managers directly, practice interview with your friends or in front of the mirror). I will support you with my materials such as case studies and scripts. This will enable you to have full confidence in achieving your goal.
You can also opt for the Laser Focus Session
This is an option if you have a list of specific questions in regards to your career development, plans or ideas, or just want to speak about your fears and concerns, a laser focus session is for you.

Our engagement process
The whole session is conversational and consultative. We may get to know a bit more with each other on our first call so as to build the trust and comfortability. This is important if you want to get the best out of our session together. What you take away is specific strategies, ideas, action steps, priorities, plans and resources and a renewed sense of purpose to act.
And, by the way…things I will not on this call – waste your time talking about my life, food or the weather or give you anything less than my full attention. Neither of us have time for that diversion, especially when it’s on your time.
We will start to list down your agenda, uncovering yourself through deep questioning and conversations, and brainstorming of options and ideas. Then we move into creating a strategic plan and take action.
If you got specific questions or challenges, we will laser focus on them. The conversation will focus in on your greatest challenges and opportunities.
