About Katherine Burik
Like Don Quixote, I tilt at the job search process so companies and candidates can make a better talent match. I’ve been doing that for years, trying to solve complex business problems so the people and organizations I work with can thrive.
The techniques we practice at The Interview Doctor come directly from my personal experience as a candidate organizing my own job searches, creating a better way to interview and as a business leader, figuring out how to “network” as a shy person to get ahead in my career.
Job search is a repeatable process, regardless of your role. Without the right plan and quality tools to navigate the process, your search for a job or the right candidate will take forever and feel awful.
CANDIDATES: Start with the right tools: Career Coaching, Resumes and LinkedIn, to be strategic with a job search. It is “More than a Resume”. You must tie your resume to LinkedIn for effective job search. Then you need a plan, a Job Search or Career Marketing Plan to grow your career. Using Linked In and networking, you can turn job ads into networking experiences so your search is more than sending off a resume to a black hole. Discover how to express yourself with interview training, strategic interview responses to “tell me about yourself” and behavioral interview preparation. Tie your resume, social media brand and interview stories together.
COMPANIES: Hire the right talent and don’t waste time on mass produced job searches that don’t yield the results you seek. We help you become more effective with your talent search. We establish a system to attract the best talent, create interview questions based on competencies and improve the candidate experience so you can find the right match for the job.
SPEAKING: As a Speaker & Author, I love presenting to groups on topics that include: better recruiting techniques, resumes, job search, career planning, LinkedIn for job search, strategic people planning.
