The Business Psychology Career Launch provides everything you need to identify the best career options for you and launch your career. I will support you with everything you need to create a career plan, position yourself for success as an Business Psychologist and have the career you deserve.
The Business Psychology Career Launch is a tailored programme for current or recently graduated MSc Occupational, Business, Work, Organisational or Industrial Psychology Grads who want to ensure that their career is as fulfilling as they expect it to be.
I’m Michelle Minnikin and I’ve been where you are. When I qualified as an Occupational Psychologist I didn’t know where the jobs were, I was conscious that it would be difficult for me to get the required chartership experience in one place so fully expected to have to move around to get sufficient experience. For family reasons I had to stay in the Northeast so I was unable to relocate to take up opportunities with Business Psychology Consultancies or other large employers for Business Psychologists so I had to be creative!
I started my career in an Occupational Psychology consultancy were I was so lucky to be able to design assessment centres and career resources for global organisations. I then went on to support long-term unemployed people with removing barriers to sustainable employment before having a number of in-house recruitment manager roles. I always wanted to work for myself (and have the best boss ever!) and after a particularly big failure in my ‘dream’ role I decided enough was enough and took the leap to start my own business.
I’ve personally undertaken career coaching and mentoring throughout my career and it has provided me with clarity, purpose, accountability and a plan to get myself to the next stage of my career. I’ve had failures, had jobs I’ve disliked immensely and ones I have absolutely loved too. I have both a business coach and a business mentor to help me grow my business.
Now, I operate a successful Business Psychology Consultancy and want to share what I’ve learnt the hard way during my career and enable you to navigate the world of work and achieve your career goals!
The bottom line...
You’ll emerge as a confident Business Psychologist who understands your true value, can articulate your purpose and strengths and who knows and understands how to manage their own professional career. Time and again I hear from Psychologists I’ve coached how they’ve realised that Business Psychologists can absolutely change the world. Because it’s not just about finding a job, it’s about creating a fulfilling career.
The changes you make in your career as a result of The Business Psychology Career Launch will advance your career and put you ahead in the jobs market, or lead you into other paths… a portfolio career or self-employment.
The Career Launch Programme is a 6 month Programme of help, support and guidence, built around our career launch system that has been proven to work in supporting people to launch and accelerate their careers!
Step 1: Finding your Purpose
Before you can pave the way for career success, you’ve got to get clear on your ‘Why’ and get to grips with what motivates you, what demotivates you, what your strengths and weaknesses are so you can make career decisions based on your values.
Step 2: Career Inspiration
In this module, we’ll be getting up close and personal with some successful Business Psychologists to learn about them and what they’ve accomplished in their careers to give you some inspiration. We will talk about how to navigate the world of careers in a VUCA world during the 4th industrial revolution. You will also work on developing a vision and goals to help with your career plan.
Step 3: Personal Branding
This is where we start dialing up our understanding of your reputation and think about your own personal branding. We will get crystal clear on what you stand for, what employers want and marry up the two!
Step 4: Job Search
So know you understand what your purpose is, what stand for, now it is time to get to grips with the job search; how to prevent being rejected and what opportunities there are out there, from traditional Business Psychologist roles to the wonderful world of self-employment! This module will help you create opportunities for yourself!
Step 5: Career Resilience
There are so many different obstacles that you could face in your career and you should be aware of what can go wrong and plan for setbacks. Your employer will not manage your career, you need to do that yourself! In this module we will create practical strategies to help you ensure that you are taking care of you…resilience, stress management and avoid burnout.
Step 6: Career Goal Setting
In the final stage, it’s time to ensure that all your newfound strategies and beliefs become second nature as soon as possible, so that your career management becomes virtually effortless and you are able to manage your own performance and ask for feedback, create accountability for achieving your goals to keep your career on track!
