Professional Career Transition

Career Coach

At the core of AJO's professional career transition program is individual consulting with an assigned Career Coach.
  • Meetings can be conducted face-to-face, in-office and/or by phone and/or by video conferencing.
  • The focus is on each participant's unique needs for his/her transition.
  • Not only do we address short-term strategies for success in a competitive job market, but we also address ongoing career management.

Program Tools and Resources

Learning and online resources are available until a successful transition, regardless of the duration of a program. We offer a blended learning model which provides live webinars, in-office seminars, and AJO's My Career Navigator with its program roadmap to facilitate “just-in-time” learning.

Program Flexibility

Today's job market demands that we offer participants the flexibility to pursue opportunities that may be temporary or short-term in nature, allowing them to resume their programs if and when necessary. If a long search is inevitable, our goal is to support each individual during extended searches and ensure participant confidence levels remain high with ongoing support, especially during later program stages.
Our programs are designed with maximum flexibility in mind with adequate consultative time set aside for exclusive use in one-on-one coach meetings. This is frequently cited as the most valuable aspect of our services.

Here's What They're Saying

"Just wanted to take a moment to thank you on my one year anniversary of being laid off. I worked at a major wireless provider for several months, and having a very long commute, kept looking and found employment only 3 miles from my home, and for 8% more than I earned at my original employer! I honestly do not think I would have had the results and success in landing not one, but two full time positions as a result of your help and guidance. And I beat out candidates quite a bit younger. Thank You Alan, and the whole team at A.J. O'Connor Associates."

"I had a truly phenomenal experience. If I had to pick one thing that stood out above everything it would be SOAR. I looked forward to coming to that every two weeks. I got so much out of those sessions. Knowing that others, who were very much like me, were facing the same challenges and learning how they were dealing with it was so incredibly helpful. The unexpected benefit were the deep, lasting relationships I made with several people that I don’t know that I would have formed otherwise."
Team Leader, Credit Bureau
"Jan and team were vital to my refocus and rebranding after 6 years with my last company. I felt Jan’s objective and supportive coaching was instrumental in the success of my search campaign. The initial process of reworking my resume, summary and LinkedIn information was critical to establish before I launched my search. I looked forward to our sessions for feedback, support and constructive strategy discussions. Jan’s credibility as a sales and marketing colleague was also very valuable."
