What is the Butler program?
The Job Search Butler program was created based on the successful experiences of over 2,000 individuals I have supported throughout my career in more than 15,000 coaching sessions. Designed to assist executives & leaders with 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, allowing you to focus on your current tasks and assignments, professional obligations, or simply enjoying life. Some of our clients are too busy to dedicate time to their career change, while others simply dislike the entire process and administrative formalities involved.
Through a dedicated project team that focuses on your success, we handle crucial tasks in 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 reaching out to your next employer through one of the personal assistants assigned to you to arrange meetings and interviews, we are committed to conducting your job search even better than if it were our own, with additional human resources. This means more time dedicated to your search than any individual has in a week and increased dedication.
This is our role: to develop a strategy, document, implement, and operationalize the search as a communication project. Your search for opportunities is managed as a project.
And you, in all of this?
Your main tasks will be to provide us with the information we need to provide our best service, follow our coaching sessions so that you can excel in your own « missions, » mainly speaking to the right people and participating in interviews and meetings. You will also have the opportunity to track our progress. Here are the general guidelines we will follow to optimize your journey:
Step 1: Help us get to know you.
The first meeting with your Butler will be based on all the documents you have provided, such as your CV, LinkedIn profile, notes, etc. Our goal is to better understand who you are and what you can bring to a company. We will provide you with various questionnaires to better understand your experience, technical and social skills, qualities, and values. This will help us define your Value Proposition, key messages, and your overall storytelling.
Step 2: Determine your objective
Based on the previous discussions, we will work with you to determine a realistic and achievable operational career objective, both in professional terms and, why not, in terms of preferred work environments. For 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 different questionnaires will allow us to better understand you (and you will undoubtedly gain your own insights) and further customize our project.
Step 3: Define and activate your target market
Defining the type of companies to focus on and your geographic areas of interest allows us to research a list of approximately 100 companies (excluding those you may have already applied to) and present it to you. Once you have validated these criteria, we arrange interviews with individuals holding senior positions within these companies, such as CEOs, COOs, CHROs, HR or recruitment managers, General Managers, based on your profile. We also facilitate meetings with the top ten headhunting firms in your target area. Additionally, if suitable for your profile, we assist you in registering on relevant job platforms and provide monitoring and tailored service proposals for the most suitable job opportunities.
Step 4: Create your communication strategy
This step is closely intertwined with the previous ones. In line with defining your objectives, we establish a communication strategy to enhance your image before interviews. We modernize and optimize your profiles on social networks. We create your personal website, including your own domain and professional email address (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org). We manage your professional accounts on social media and increase your visibility by posting messages and articles that highlight your strengths. Finally, we provide coaching on the 6 dimensions of national cultures so that you can deepen your understanding of company facets and local cultures and use them to communicate effectively.
Step 5: Become a networking master
Equipped with everything you need to convince companies to hire you, you now need to connect with the right people. We expand your network of valuable contacts, particularly within the list of chosen companies, by connecting with 10 to 15 individuals every day. We compile 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 persuade employers. We provide you with intelligence reports on each company you have a scheduled interview with. We prepare you for individual or group interviews, emphasizing influencing techniques. We follow up on your interviews and consider the necessary assistance to secure a favorable decision. Finally, we support you during your onboarding process.
