Why hire a career guides?

Do you feel like you forgot everything you knew? Do you feel like others know more than me? Are you an EAD mom? Or waiting for your Employment Authorization Document? You have work-permit & looking for a job? Been at home for a few years? Not sure which career to choose? Is everyone suggesting getting into IT or Salesforce?

These are all great points to keep in mind when considering your career path and working with a career coach.

  1. Spending more time now, in the short run, will help save you problems in the long run – Investing time and effort in understanding your career goals and developing a plan to achieve them can help you avoid wasting time in jobs that aren’t a good fit and ultimately find greater career success.
  2. There are many functions across industries and organizations – This highlights the vast array of career paths available to individuals. A career coach can help you identify potential career paths that align with your interests and skills.
  3. Our career coaches will help you understand more about your strengths, challenges, skills, and passions – Understanding yourself is key to finding a career that provides satisfaction and fulfillment. A career coach can provide insight and guidance to help you identify your strengths, challenges, skills, and passions.

A career coach can help you make informed decisions about your career path to maximize your potential for success.

it can be overwhelming and confusing to navigate the job market, especially when you have a career gap or are unsure about your career path. It is normal to feel like others know more than you or that you have forgotten everything you knew, but it’s important to remember that everyone has different experiences and knowledge, and you have unique strengths and skills that you can bring to the table.

If you are an EAD mom or waiting for your Employment Authorization Document, or if you have a work-permit and are looking for a job after a career gap, it can be helpful to work with a career coach who can provide guidance and support. A career coach can help you identify your strengths and interests, explore potential career paths, and develop a plan to achieve your career goals.

Need help with Resume? Do you have a gap in your career? Is your resume dated? Are you new to the job market and need to create a winning resume? Have you listed your top 5 strengths on your resume?

    Address gaps in your career – If you have gaps in your employment history, be sure to address them in your resume. You can include a brief explanation of why there was a gap and what you were doing during that time.

  • Showcase your achievements – Instead of just listing your responsibilities, focus on the accomplishments and results you’ve achieved in your previous roles.
  • Use bullet points and white space – Make your resume easy to scan by using bullet points and plenty of white space, rather than long paragraphs of text.
  • Keep it brief – Aim for a one to two-page resume that highlights your most important skills and experiences.
  • Focus on formatting – A well-formatted resume can make a big difference in how it’s received by potential employers. Make sure it’s easy to read, with clear headings and bullet points.
  • Tailor your resume for each job – When applying for a specific job, be sure to tailor your resume to match the requirements of that job. This may involve rearranging or adding sections to highlight relevant experience and skills.

Salary Report

Questions?

Do you know the salary range for your current job or role? Do you know what salary to ask for your next job? Are you using free crowdsourced data online like salary.com or glassdoor.com to do your research? Do you feel you are not making enough and would like to know how much your job and your skill is worth?

Many women struggle to navigate the complexities of salary negotiations and feel uncertain about their worth. InurWoman can provide published data for your salary needs.

  • Free resources for checking salary online websites like salary.com, glassdoor or google is called crowdsourced data.
  • Crowdsourced or free data comes from anyone who wants to post it online – regular people like you and me. Crowdsourced data is limited (sample size varies), data may or may not be accurate and data doesn’t get updated regularly.
  • Published or Reported data comes from an organization, verified resources and HR of a company. It provides accurate salary range (minimum and maximum) of base, total cash and other data points like LTI and STI.
  • We use PayScale Salary Report – The leading compensation survey and tool company in US.

At Aware Naari, we believe that transparency and accuracy in salary data are crucial for empowering women in their careers. While there are many free online resources for checking salary information, such as Salary.com, Glassdoor, or Google, it’s important to understand the limitations of crowdsourced data.

Crowdsourced data comes from anyone who wants to post it online, which can include regular people like you and me. This means that the sample size can vary, and the data may or may not be accurate. Additionally, crowdsourced data doesn’t get updated regularly, which means that it may not reflect the most current salary trends and information.

To ensure that our clients have access to the most accurate and up-to-date salary data available, we use the PayScale Salary Report. PayScale is the leading compensation survey and tool company in the United States, providing verified and reliable data on salary ranges, total cash compensation, and other key data points like LTI and STI.

PayScale is known as the leading compensation survey and tool company in the United States for a reason. They provide a vast amount of verified and reliable data on salary ranges, total cash compensation, and other important data points like LTI (long-term incentives) and STI (short-term incentives).

What’s even more impressive is that PayScale provides this data on a very granular level, taking into account factors like location, city, state, and national averages, as well as your skills and qualifications.

Got an offer and no idea what salary to ask? How to negotiate salary in new offers and current jobs? What is the market paying for the role? What is your worth? What is the salary range for my current role? What else can I negotiate for? How much bonus is typical for my level? Should I negotiate for Stocks/shares

Salary negotiation can be a daunting process, especially if you’re not sure what you’re worth or what the market is paying for your role. But it’s an important step in achieving fair compensation and taking control of your career.

If you’ve received an offer and are unsure what salary to ask for, it’s important to do your research. Utilize resources like the PayScale Salary Report or other verified salary data sources to get a sense of the market rate for your role. This can help you set realistic expectations and avoid underselling yourself or asking for too much.

When negotiating salary in new offers or current jobs, it’s important to focus on the value you bring to the organization and the impact you’ve made. Use specific examples of your achievements and contributions to demonstrate your worth and make a case for higher compensation.

In addition to salary, there may be other benefits or perks that you can negotiate for. For example, you may be able to negotiate for a signing bonus, increased vacation time, or stock options. Knowing what is typical for your level and industry can help you make informed decisions about what to negotiate for.

It’s also important to remember that salary negotiation is a two-way street. While you want to advocate for fair compensation, you also want to maintain a positive and professional relationship with your employer. Be open to compromise and willing to listen to their perspective.

At Aware Naari, we understand the importance of fair compensation and can help you navigate the salary negotiation process. Whether you’re starting a new job or looking to negotiate a raise in your current role, we can provide you with the data and insights you need to make informed decisions and achieve the compensation you deserve. Contact us today to learn more about our salary negotiation services.

  • Salary negotiation is no easy task. A lot goes into the discussion based on market benchmarking data, years of experience in the role, critical skills, people management experience, educational qualifications, your leverage in your team etc.
  • When we understand our leverage in our current role, we can negotiate salary much better.
  • Salary negotiation is not only about base salary. It also includes short-term incentives, long-term incentives, vacation time, bonus and other benefits.
  • I have worked for a decade in compensation. I have worked as a compensation consultant with a fortune 250 company that collects, publishes, and sells salary data to major US companies and globally.
  • I will answer any questions that you have for your compensation – what salary to ask for and what salary can you expect in your next role.

At Aware Naari, we understand that salary negotiation can be a daunting task, especially when you’re not sure what your skills and experience are worth in the market. That’s why we provide expert guidance and resources to help you navigate the negotiation process with confidence.

Our team of compensation experts has years of experience in the field, including working as consultants for major companies and collecting and analyzing salary data for industry publications. We use this knowledge to help you understand your market value and negotiate a salary that reflects your worth. We utilize resources like the PayScale Salary Report and other salary data sources to get a sense of the market rate for your role.

We know that salary negotiation is not just about the base salary. That’s why we help you consider all aspects of compensation, including short-term and long-term incentives, bonus, vacation time, and other benefits. By understanding the full picture of your compensation package, you can make informed decisions and negotiate effectively.
