Hey, I’m Caroline, your career coach and mentor.
In this video, I’m going to share with you three strategies to land your first 6-figure job.
For those who don’t know me, I specialise in helping people achieve success in this area.
I hear all the time the limiting beliefs that people have.
- I need more qualifications.
- I need more experience.
- I need extra courses before I can ask for a 6-figure salary.
I say that most of the time, you already have what it takes.
You just haven’t packaged it up or positioned yourself in the right way.
The biggest block that’s holding you back is the fact that you don’t intently create a personal brand that demands a 6-figure salary.
1. Be more intentional in creating a personal brand that is aligned with how you want to be in your career.
I know that everybody has a personal brand but they let it drift.
Choose how people perceive you.
- What do you want from your career?
- What do you want to do on a daily basis?
Stop and think about the things that really inspire and motivate you because that’s the foundation of your personal brand.
Once you have identified those elements, then you can start creating your resume and optimising your LinkedIn profile based on those findings.
2. Optimise your resume and incorporate your leadership and strategic skills.
The biggest pitfall I see here is that people who look to upgrade their salary and hit that 6-figure salary stay in an executional mindset.
Even though they have responsibilities that incorporate leadership and strategy, they don’t believe they are enough and therefore they downplay them and undersell themselves.
- How can you optimise your resume?
- What have you done on a leadership or strategic level that would require an external or internal promotion from your next role?
That’s how you step-up to that 6-figure salary.
3. Optimise your LinkedIn Profile.
LinkedIn is a platform that helps you raise your profile so make sure that you track the right type of jobs – the 6-figure jobs.
I hope this video inspired you and I want you to do three things from here.
