We offer more than a career workshop...
The Ontology of ValueTM System
We believe that the best approach to develop your full potential, is to find your competitive advantage in the job market and cooperate/ collaborate rather than compete. This approach proves to be the most effective both in business and in career building! Therefore, we will help you determine your unique profile and position yourself in the job market in a way to excel.
In the job market, there is no one else like you. You have your unique “professional ID” or “professional fingerprint.” This fingerprint is composed of a set of your core competencies acquired throughout your education process and professional career, your individual way of creating value for others, and your values and beliefs that make you fit into specific working environments. We use our own methodology developed with our in-house R&D tools to let you discover your fingerprint and navigate in the job market like a pro!
Given all my skills and talents, where should I go next?
Where will I flourish and build the career I love?
Are there any hidden career paths I haven’t noticed just yet?
Where can I find “my” people in the job market and how to join them?
We have the answers.
Namely, the answers to these questions depend not only on your skills but also on your personality, working style, and values. And as a matter of fact, there is nothing like the best job in the world. In fact, you and your job are like two pieces of a puzzle — to be happy at work, you will need to find that the perfect fit! During our intensive workshop, we will look for your “Person-Market Fit” together.
Moreover, how can you get an edge in today’s job market? It is all about you and your self-discovery; about how you are as a professional. It’s about your mindset, in-demand skills, and planning strategies.
In our workshops, we combine insightful, up-to-date information on the job market with intensive training in self-navigation. This is what tells us apart: we don’t just fill missing space in your profile. Instead, we guide you so that you can dig deep into yourself, improve on your networking and negotiation skills, and your strategy planning. In order to achieve this, we include interactive group lectures, self-discovery exercises, aptitude tests, mock-up job interviews, group exercises, and a 1-1 consultancy session in our workshops.
Our Training Strategy
We do our own R&D based on networking, field research, informational interviews, and psychometrics combined with machine learning. Therefore, we don’t offer yet another career orientation workshop based on textbook knowledge! During our courses, you will go through a battery of aptitude tests and exercises to help you determine the career path that might be optimal for you.
But this is not all – we also keep in touch with the participants of our workshops and help them further! Firstly, our participants receive a battery of homework assignments. Secondly, we stay in touch after the course through the dedicated Discord channel. We also provide further career advice via a dedicated newsletter.
