118. Am I a generalist or a specialist?

January 24, 2022

Register to attend the Free Job Hunting Masterclass on the 1st or 2nd of February 2022.

Do you know if you are a generalist or a specialist? If you believe you are a generalist, you probably think of yourself as a jack of all trades. That is, someone who can step in and lead or do the job, regardless of sector or industry. You may be surprised to learn that you may not be exactly a generalist. On the other hand, if you are worried that you’re a specialist, your niche is too narrow, and you may not be able to advance in your career, guess what? You may also be mistaken!

People think of generalists are jacks of all trades, and specialists are experts. But this may be a very narrow and limited view of the two labels. It all depends on the context, and this is where I see the mistake being made by professionals who try to explain themselves as generalists or specialists to recruiters and employers. Most define themselves as one of the other, and believe that whatever they think they are is the wrong thing to be!

Listen to this episode to find out more about these two labels, how and when to use them, and when it's best to avoid them altogether!

117. Job Hunting as a Senior Executive - with Amber Knight (Re-Broadcast).

January 17, 2022

Register to attend the Free Job Hunting Masterclass on the 1st or 2nd of February 2022.

If you are a senior executive listening to this show, or you one day want to advance in your career to become a senior executive, Amber Knight's experience job hunting as a senior executive is an important one for you to listen to. In this episode, we revisit my conversation with Amber, a senior communications executive, who has worked for the BBC and The Walt Disney Company

In March 2019, Disney purchased the film and TV assets held by 21st Century Fox for $71.3 billion. This was an enormous deal, and it reverberated down the company structure. It's expected that mergers and acquisitions will result in restructures, aka, redundancies. Amber and her team left Disney towards the end of 2019, and the pandemic prolonged her unemployment. This is a topic we discussed a few times during the last episodes of 2021, so if you are interested in learning more about long-term unemployment and how to handle it and avoid it, please listen to episodes 108 and 109.

Amber has been a huge supporter of this podcast, writing about it and praising it in her LinkedIn posts. I invited her to be a guest and share her experience, and afterward, she also participated in the 2021 Job Hunting Made Simple Online Course and Group Coaching program.

We are soon re-opening registrations for the program, and the best way to find out about it is to register for the Free Job Hunting Masterclass happening on the 1st and 2nd of February. You can find it on my website or on any social media platforms. If you are a newsletter subscriber, please check your inbox, I will have sent you details and look forward to seeing you there.

This year, the Free Job Hunting Masterclass will be huge, with critical advice and tips for corporate job hunting in 2022 and beyond. I am ambitious this year and hope to share, as always, essential information you will not find anywhere else. That's always my motto and my promise to you: I don't want to waste your time, explaining what you already know. My goal is always to make the most out of your valuable time, and share information that can be a gamechanger for your career success. I hope to see you there.

116. Expert Tips to Start Your New Job - with Sue Zablud (Rebroadcast).

January 10, 2022

Register to attend the Free Job Hunting Masterclass on the 1st or 2nd of February 2022.

The first 90 days into a new job are crucial, especially if you are a professional working in the corporate, nonprofit, or public sectors. The extensive research shows that the way you start sets the tone for the rest of your tenure in an organization. Changing perceptions later can be done, of course, but it’s more challenging. So why not plan ahead and be strategic about the initial onboarding. I am rebroadcasting some of the best episodes of 2020, while I take a break from my weekly podcast to recharge during the Australian summer. In this episode from February 2020, Consultant, Coach, and coach trainer Sue Zablud joined me to discuss one of our favorite topics. Sue also delivers an important masterclass inside my group coaching program, Job Hunting Made Simple. I hope you enjoy my conversation with Sue, which we recorded just prior to the launch of the Job Hunting Made Simple Program in February 2020.

Happy New Year everyone!

This episode is going live in the first week of 2022, as I take a break from podcasting to enjoy the Australian Summer.  So I’m rebroadcasting an episode that I think is perfect for January.

Did you know that during January, job search spikes to a year high? And that many people use the holiday break to update their LinkedIn profiles?

So in this episode, I share:

- my journey and evolution using LinkedIn,

- how I updated my profile and activity over time in line with my career plans,

- the results I got and how they helped my career advancement, and...

- I also share how I use these same tips and ideas to help my private coaching clients and to do my LinkedIn Audits.

To help you further:

  1. You can download a free resource: my Linkedin Check-list. This will help get your LinkedIn review started and ensure you're ticking all the boxes on Linkedin to get your profile and activity noticed in such a way that helps your career progression.
  2. You can book a LinkedIn Audit: Click here to learn more and book. The audit is very comprehensive, I analyse your profile top to bottom providing you with feedback, I analyze your activity and give you ideas and recommendations on how to best spend your time on Linkedin. This is all recorded and the video is yours to keep so you can go back to it and do the updates one by one, with me guiding you along the way.

Wishing you a lovely start of the year! Now, lets enjoy this episode and learn how to make LinkedIn work for you :)

114. Understanding the Recruitment Process: A Guide for Job Hunters (Rebroadcast).

December 27, 2021

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a lovely festive season. As this episode goes out into the world, Xmas 2021 is behind us and The New Year is a few days ahead of us. There are so many dreams and hopes we have postponed for the past 2 years, I am sure many of you will agree that the End of 2021 and the beginning of a fresh brand new year, is a very exciting and hopeful prospect. I wish all of you all the very best in 2022 and hope that you make your dreams come true, live your life purposefully, and enjoy the journey as well as the destination.

It’s summer in Australia and I am taking a break from weekly podcasting to spend time on the beach and relaxing with my family and friends. So today we are rebroadcasting a special episode that I think is a good one for this time of the year. If you don’t have a job, it will help you set your expectation and make powerful and achievable goals for the year ahead. If you have a job and you’re considering moving on from it, this episode will help you set your goals as well. It’s a win-win for all listeners.

This episode and the comprehensive blog post that is a companion to it are an extract from one of the lessons from my online course and group coaching program, Job Hunting Made Simple. Job Hunting Made Simple is coming back in February and some of you may be ready to join this great program that has been so successful to past professionals who attended in previous years. To learn more and register your interest in participating in the next group coaching program starting late February, please go to https://www.renatabernarde.com/jhms.

113. Meditation for Job Hunters -With Ilana Kosakiewicz (Rebroadcast).

December 20, 2021

It is essential to take care of our overall well-being to do the best job we can and not burn out. Learning to find your balance between work and other important aspects of your life will help you reach your career goals.

So, in the new year, whether you are going back to work or looking for a new job, it is vital to stick to a routine that incorporates taking care of your body and mind, as well as your career. This will help you stay grounded and enhance your health and wellness because nobody will be able to take care of you better than yourself.

Ilana Kosakiewicz is one of Australia’s leading kinesiologists,  yoga and meditation teachers. In this episode, We are rebroadcasting part of our interview with Ilana from an episode released earlier this year. In this extract, Ilana does a guided 10-minute meditation for us.  

If you are familiar with meditation, I’m sure you will love Ilana’s calm and experienced guidance. If you’re a newbie, give this a go, and notice how you feel just before and just after doing it. I bet you’ll be able to tell the difference.

If you want to listen to the entire conversation with Ilana about her career transitions and about health and wellbeing in the corporate world, I will put the link to the episode in the show notes for you. And I was also interviewed on Ilana’s podcast, The Energy Shift. I will add the link to that episode as well in the show notes.

Now, get ready to have a relaxing time and be guided by Ilana through 10-minute meditation.

Merry Christmas everyone.

About our guest, Ilana Kosakiewicz:

Ilana Kosakiewicz one of Australia’s leading kinesiologists, energy coaches, and yoga and meditation teachers. She is a wholefood lover, an entrepreneur with a past life spent working in the corporate world as a CPA accountant.

Ilana’s own health journey with chronic fatigue and auto-immune disease taught her that slowing down, finding moments of stillness, living in the now, and listening to your body’s inner wisdom and intuition are not just important – they are essential.

Ilana is passionate about teaching women to live in alignment with their innate cyclical energy, menstrual cycle, and the moon. She helps women shift their energy and take back their inner power and self-care rights by making themselves the number one priority.

Ilana also works with children (& some men) to assist in shifting their essence, energy, and zest so they can live authentic, content, and happy lives.

Originally from Gippsland Australia, Ilana now lives in Bayside Melbourne and spends her days with her clients, teaching yoga and meditation, writing, dancing, cooking in her kitchen, and spending as much time at the beach as she can.

106. Two-year anniversary and the future of life and work.

106. Two-year anniversary and the future of life and work.

November 1, 2021

Register your interest for the Reset Your Career Workshop. You will be the first to know when enrollments open and will also access early-bird specials. 

About this episode:

In this episode, we will talk about the future of life and work for the executive professional.

The pandemic has shaken things up for the white-collar worker. Many of us no longer do daily long commutes to work, no longer eat at our desks in open-plan offices, no longer meet face to face with clients and colleagues, at least not every day.

These changes may have been forecasted and many times advocated for. But it was a pandemic that pushed everything over the line.

And in this episode, we celebrate two years of The Job Hunting Podcast, as well as my coaching business, including the Job Hunting Made Simple online course and coaching program, my services such as the LinkedIn Audits and the private consultations, which you can book online when you need them, as well as the Reset Your Career workshop, which is coming back on the 25th of November, that’s actually the 24th for those in the US, Canada UK, and Europe since I am based in Australia.

So if you are interested in participating in this brand new, re-imagined Reset Your Career Workshop, please listen up as I will be talking about it at the end of this episode. 

Special promotion and giveway to celebrating our second anniversary:

To celebrate our 2nd anniversary, I am gifting 5 registrations to the first 5 listeners who write this podcast a review on Apple Podcasts. All you need to do is write a review, give us 5 stars, send me a screenshot of your review via email, or message me on Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, or Facebook. We will be in touch with you and make sure you are registered for the upcoming Reset Your Career workshop. We will be gifting the 5 registrations on a first-in best-dressed basis as we receive the emails or messages, so please don’t forget to contact us. Otherwise, it would be tough for us to find out who you are. You have until the 23rd of November 2021 to participate in this giveaway.

Dedicating time to plan your career is a great long-term investment.

In this podcast episode, I address one of the biggest issues I discuss with prospective coaching clients when they want to get fast results in job searching or career progression. I ask them to forget about me (i.e., the coach) for a moment. And think: are you dedicating time to this project? If not, are you willing to? Because coaching is an excellent investment, but it will only work if you incorporate into your life a new routine to sustain your career, ensure you progress towards your goals, and keep the opportunities coming to you in the long term.

I get it: It's challenging to know what to do and how to spend your time:

  • Should you be on Zoom having virtual coffees with your connections?
  • Or is it better to spend your time searching and applying for jobs online?
  • How can you look for work when you have a full-time job?

It's exhausting! Sometimes the anxiety and lack of confidence can be debilitating. And when you finally get around to applying for a great role...crickets! You hear nothing back. So much time wasted for nothing. At times, you just want to give up.

4 Time management tips for job hunters and career planners:

In this episode (number 93), I provide four tips so you can find the time, use it well, and incorporate career planning into your routine:

  1. Make a date with yourself
  2. Make things easier and more streamlined with templates
  3. Find time to test, plan, and prepare
  4. Be in the moment

Imagine job hunting without stress, confusion, and overwhelm.

The information overload we experience daily drains our capacity to think and plan strategically for our life, career, and future happiness. Job hunting and career planning can be exhausting. When you're doing it on your own, the anxiety and lack of confidence are debilitating.

But it’s 100% possible to job hunt with confidence and take control of the outcomes for your future career steps. I know this because I have plenty of statements from my clients to prove that my coaching framework wors. I’ve been in the same situation in my career, and I created a proven system to helps executives achieve their career goals.

If you are ready to take control of your career, I invite you to join my group coaching program. Enrolments are now open for a limited time, and this is the last group coaching for 2021. So if you want to get that new job or promotion this year, then this is your chance to navigate recruitment and selection with support, without overwhelming and guesswork. 

Podcast Episode Timestamps:

  • 07:44 - Make a date with yourself: once a day, week, quarter - schedule it
  • 11:37 - Prepare templates to support your career.
  • 13:04 - Test, plan, and prepare: things you can do when you have time and don’t need a job or promotion. 
  • 16:29 - Be in the moment.

About our guest, Michele Chevalley Hedge:

Michele Chevalley Hedge was previously a marketing manager, so she truly understands the needs of time-poor corporate executives who, family or not, want health but not hassle. Health magazine editors often introduce her as “the modern-day nutritionist – the one who likes a bit of wine and coffee.” She is not Paleo Pete, or I Quit Sugar but perfectly placed somewhere in the healthy middle.

Michele’s clinical practice and experience allow her to share stories of patients and their nutritional transformation, which give the audience goosebumps – the kinds of stories that can only be heard if you are at the coal face with clients. Women who say their addiction to food caused their divorce; executives who say they don’t like going to the boardroom without her five top tips; and politicians, and their families, who come to her wellness retreats. Recognizing her sensible approach to nutrition, four years ago, Wiley Publishing commissioned Michele to write Beating Sugar Addictions for Dummies. 

Every week, Michele works with major banks in Australia – Westpac, CBA, ANZ, HSBC, and corporations like Apple, Dropbox, Dexus, News.com, MFAA, Women in Focus, ACCOR, Westfield, Department of Defence, Tourism Portfolio, Heart Research Australia, Cure Cancer, and schools and education events. She is the keynote speaker for the Heads of Schools of Australia and the Positive Schools Conference in Hong Kong. Michele is also an ambassador for Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution and the launch of THAT SUGAR FILM.

Michele is the Nature Care College Ambassador, Cure Cancer Ambassador, and Heart Research Institute Ambassador and consults for 100’s on international corporations. She recently sat alongside the Dalai Lama at a conference where she presented on ‘Vitality, Energy and Serotonin – It’s all in Your Food.’ Mental health and nutrition research is her passion, and she often declares, “It makes the New Yorker come out in her.”

Links mentioned in this episode:

  • Do you have training material ready for online teaching? Then, learn more about Kajabi, which is the platform I use and check if this is something you should invest in. I LOVE Kajabi and have built my entire website and learning programs using the platform. I have already converted many colleagues and coaches to using it. You can teach anything on Kajabi: music, farming, yoga... It handles everything: mailing this newsletter, CRM, payments, my website, and of course, my online teaching platform.*
  • Do you want to be coached by my coach? If so, join me and many others from May to July for a 3-month program designed to help you launch a product or service in 3 months! I have done so many programs, and this one is by far the one that worked best for me. It goes through all the steps you need to take, in real-time, with all the resources, templates, and tools you need. I will be doing it again, so we can be colleagues!*
  • Do you want a website? Here's my secret: Templates with everything you need: webpages, social media templates, all done for you, styled, branded, and easy to use. Yes, you can change the colors and photos.*
  • Do you hate sending emails backward and forward to book a meeting? If you have been spoiled for most of your career by having excellent EAs (guilty!) and all of a sudden you find yourself managing your own calendar, you have a newfound respect for the work they used to do for you, right? Many people like Calendly, but I'm a big fan of Harmonizely. It is effortless to use, translates well to different time zones, sends reminders, asks questions, and automatically sets up a zoom meeting. It's a blessing, and I can't live without it.*
  • A link to the episode about my career story: 62. My career story: From immigrant to CEO.
  • Book a free discovery call with me if you are considering getting a private coach to support your next steps.
  • The Optimized Job Search Workshop
  • The Optimized Job Search Schedule

*Because I'm such a big fan of the services above, and over time I have referred colleagues and clients to them, these businesses have been generous enough to offer me a commission. This means that if you use the links above, I will get a percentage of the sales, and there will be no additional cost to you. It goes without saying that I would not be recommending them if I did not 100% believed in them. In fact, I use them all in my all business.

About our guest, Ilana Kosakiewicz:

Ilana Kosakiewicz one of Australia’s leading kinesiologists, energy coaches, and yoga and meditation teachers. She is a wholefood lover, an entrepreneur with a past life spent working in the corporate world as a CPA accountant.

Ilana’s own health journey with chronic fatigue and auto-immune disease taught her that slowing down, finding moments of stillness, living in the now, and listening to your body’s inner wisdom and intuition are not just important – they are essential.

Ilana is passionate about teaching women to live in alignment with their innate cyclical energy, menstrual cycle, and the moon. She helps women shift their energy and take back their inner power and self-care rights by making themselves the number one priority. 

Ilana also works with children (& some men) to assist in shifting their essence, energy, and zest so they can live authentic, content, and happy lives.

Originally from Gippsland Australia, Ilana now lives in Bayside Melbourne and spends her days with her clients, teaching yoga and meditation, writing, dancing, cooking in her kitchen, and spending as much time at the beach as she can.

The Job Hunting Made Simple Online Course & Group Coaching Program

Job Hunting Made Simple is a 7-week online course + coaching program created by Renata Bernarde that shows you how to plan and advance your career in an intentional, inspiring, and fun way. It is a proven blueprint for creating a prosperous career and attracting your next job.

Looking for work and taking the next steps to advance your career can be a stressful and lonely experience. The information overload we experience every day drains our capacity to think and plan strategically for our lives, careers, and future happiness. The Job Hunting Made Simple program provides a framework to make sense of all the options, opportunities, and steps ahead in an intentional, inspiring, and simple way.

Job Hunting Made Simple was created for you if you are:

  • serious about your future career progression, but unsure how to achieve your goals
  • in-between jobs and not knowing if you're putting time and effort into the right strategies
  • returning to the job market after being without work for an extended time and feeling like the pandemic has taken away your confidence
  • with the same organization for a long time, and you haven't looked for work outside of your organization in a while. Or if you have, you've been unsuccessful. 
  • ready to look for new job opportunities, but can't find the time or focus on doing it!
  • you feel overwhelmed and pulled in different directions, and you wish you had guidance and a framework you could follow.

If this is you, then this program is for you. I look forward to seeing you on the inside!
