Success Story: Kiikstart & Jackie Sincock
Jackie chose to work with Kiikstart because she wanted to explore other more creative, entrepreneurial career options, potentially under her own brand as a contractor.
Through a process of guided self-reflection, we identified that Jackie’s resumé was not a true reflection of her talent, passion and future goals.
It’s current style and manner was easily lost in a sea of beige resumés. For Jackie to explore and compete for new opportunities it was essential to design a creative and compelling bio - one that was not a typical resume but an actual story. A story that underpinned a career brand that could translate across relevant social media platforms such as LinkedIn and Instagram.
Jackie and Kiikstart crafted a strong piece of personal marketing - not just a generic resumé.
Clearly and creatively communicated not just what Jackie does, but the distinctive style in how Jackie delivered benefit to team, business and clients.
Supported the career brand Jackie created with alongside Kiikstart.
Created a story and identity that had focus and was targeted to the right roles and businesses - including organisational fit.
As a result, Jackie had far greater insight into the value of industry experience and where it was going to be of most benefit in the next stages.
Working with Kiikstart allowed Jackie to take the learnings and lessons from the written bio and convey it with increased confidence before and during interviews.
During her time working with Kiikstart, Jackie was able to identify new opportunities working as a contractor under her own brand. She is now successfully working on a variety of projects with leading government and community organisations.
What they said...
So much has changed and I’m not sure I can fully quantify it.
I can tell my story better. I can see my value and that of the work. I can dream. I can question. I can see patterns. I can see myself and how I make decisions. Habits are broken (bad(ish) ones). Things are more deliberate. Things are uncomfortable so change is happening.
Thank you, Ali. This has been transformational and important. There is no going back. As said by Oliver Wendell Holmes “One’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.”
