It’s difficult to change careers on your own. Few people get their current position without any help or guidance. Having an informed, resourceful network is critical for making strategic career decisions. Working with someone who has worked both in academia AND the private sector, and who understands the synergies and differences between the two job markets can be an asset to your career transition: it saves you time and energy.
We will get to know you a bit better by sending you a comprehensive questionnaire/assessment about your academic and professional background. Once you will have returned the questionnaire, you’ll be invited to schedule a 30-minute brainstorming appointment over the phone or Skype, during which we will discuss your personal background, skills and strengths, hobbies and interest, and set up a plan of action to identify career paths, target positions, and build the strong personal and professional profile you need to get hired.
Like any other relationship, the more you invest into your sessions, the greater the benefits. To achieve results, it’s important for you to be open to feedback and to be willing to fully invest yourself in the work you need to do after our sessions.
Not at all. If you consider that you could potentially increase your starting salary, decrease the amount of time wasted “learning the ropes” of the non-academic job search, and speed up your career growth by getting a better job than if you had gone about it alone, the money you invest in our services could be one of the best investments you’ll ever make! A brief look at the feedback we receive will tell you that many of our clients are convinced they would not be where they are without Academic EQ’s strategic help.
Of course! You can start by buying a few hours. When you are ready to purchase additional services, you can either purchase additional services online, or send us an email and we’ll send you a link.
You are in complete control and decide what we work on. You will be billed for the time your consultant spends reviewing materials, editing, and consulting with you on the telephone, Skype, or via email. Since billable hours include time spent composing emails, we highly encourage communicating by phone (which is much quicker!) We make sure to keep you informed of the time used while we work together. If you are unsure about the number of hours you need or have concerns about cost, feel free request an estimate before purchasing.
Very easy. Go to the page of the services you need. Click on the “Add to Cart” button and fill out the order form. You will receive an email asking for academic and professional background information. Your order will be processed within 24 hours. Your credit card will be billed immediately.
