Who is this Career Talk service for?
Sometimes there are topics you can’t discuss with your immediate colleagues. And, most likely, your friends won’t appreciate if you spend the whole evening talking about work when you finally get to meet them. That’s when our Career Talk service comes handy.
Why does it matter?
Talking about career, salaries, your boss or professional challenges should not be a taboo! Such conversations often help you gain a clearer vision over your career path and allow you to make the best decisions for you. Whether you work for a small company or in a corporate environment, you may come across situations when the next best step for you is not clear. An unbiased opinion may help you significantly in making the right move. And sometimes you simply need to vent about something, for the sake of mental health, to get the pressure off your shoulders. Our Career Talk service is designed for such situations.
How does our Career Talk service work?
You purchase the service on our website and one of our career-talkers gets assigned to you by our system. You’ll be contacted to confirm the time of your Career Talk meeting. When you purchase our Career Talk service you can choose any Starbucks or Mamacoffee in Karlin, New town, Old town or in Smichov area in Prague. Our career-talker will be waiting for you there at the agreed time. If you want, you can also check available time-slots before you purchase this service. You can do it with our chat-bot on Facebook here. Just type in ‘time’, and he’ll check the dates for you.
What do you get when you request our Career Talk service?
Our Career-talker will meet you for 60 minutes to discuss anything work-related that bothers you. The price is final; and you are not expected to pay for their order at the coffeehouse.
Here is an overview of the most common topics we get to discuss with our group members:
- My boss doesn’t acknowledge my efforts. What should I do?
- How should I ask for more money and succeed?
- I struggle to connect with my new colleagues, especially the local ones. What are my options?
- I feel under pressure with an unmanageable workload. What’s my way out of this?
- I have more than one job offer lined up for me. How should I choose the best one for me?
- I struggle to find the right life and work balance. How do I go about this?
What else to consider?
