Whether you are looking for a new job in life sciences or other business fields today or you are simply thinking about a career change in the future—perhaps transitioning from academia—you need to ask yourself: “How can I do my very best to compete for my ideal job now and in the future?”

In today’s hyper-competitive world, the answer is neither to do-it-yourself, nor to expect an overworked résumé-based recruiter to do it for you.

You need a mentor. You need someone who will champion you to influential employers in your field. Someone who can connect the complex pieces of your particular employment puzzle—who you are, what you offer, and who would most value both.

In the sports and entertainment worlds, a person who performs these services is called an agent.

Promotion Career Management is now bringing this approach to the business world as “career agents.”

How our career agent support benefits you

At PCM, we will analyze your employment history, assess your leadership strengths and weaknesses, package the results as your personal “brand,” and help you sell yourself in various ways within networking events and job interviews.

You simply cannot compare the amount of time and work we put into your success versus that of a traditional recruiter, when it comes to carefully planning, building, and finding the right fit and trajectory for your career growth.

You can see our complete list of individual services here.

We can even help you after you are hired

Your career requires more than a handshake and a pat on the back from a “Who’s next?” type of recruiter.

At PCM, we can continue building your successful career even after you are hired.

The first way is to continue mentoring you and building your professional dossier and path within your current company (or elsewhere, if your company cannot reasonably accommodate your goals).

The second way is to forge a working relationship with the hiring manager and others in the company where you now work.

Last, our work with you can help you succeed by supplying your data for people analytics studies we perform for your employer. The more data available on you, the more likely it is that you and your company will find the ideal fit for your personal and professional qualities and aspirations.

This is preferable, because it connects another highly valuable piece of the puzzle: How employers can help ensure that the person they hired (or promoted, if you have worked there for a while) will succeed within their company culture?

After all, as a new hire wouldn’t you like to rise up and gain more responsibility over time? And wouldn’t a good company want the same for you, as you prove your readiness?

This can be difficult to manage, with a myopic focus on your tasks at hand and a company with many other people to manage daily.

PCM has the experience to be both parties’ go-between, helping with onboarding as well as continuing development.

You can learn more about how we help both sides succeed at connecting the employment puzzle by reading the career agent difference.

We urge you to do so—because you will see just how far our business model goes in developing successful hires for both individuals and employers.
