Become a Hudson Job Search Advisor

Looking for a job today is far different than it was 20, 10, and even 5 years ago.  In addition to the changes in job search technology and methods, there remains the personal “sting” of being unemployed and the financial concerns that today’s jobseekers face.

At HJS, we provide jobseekers support and guidance that is proven to shorten the time it takes for our clients to gain meaningful employment.  An important ingredient in HJS’s results is the HJS Advisor.  These volunteer advisors are key to our clients’ job search successes.

Job Description: Hudson Job Search (HJS) Advisor

Hudson Job Search is a voluntary outplacement organization. It is not an employment agency. It is a group that uses proven processes to provide clients the skills they need to obtain employment in today’s job market.  Key to this effort is the HJS volunteer advisor.  These advisors provide coaching and support to unemployed clients seeking job search assistance.

Advisors are trained in the HJS process of providing client assistance in the following areas: job research, resumes, marketing plans, networking, interviewing, negotiating offers, and follow up steps after landing a new position.

Advisors also have additional resources that are available to them to assist their clients.  These include Monday night meetings held twice a month with experts on various aspects of the job search process.  Both advisors and their clients are encouraged to attend.

Additionally, there are group advisor meetings held twice a month. Here advisors share issues and seek help from other advisors to assist their clients.

HJS also offers skill assessments, mock interviews, and other valuable job search tools.

Advisors will typically have 3 to 4 clients per year.  Throughout the job search process, advisors generally meet with their clients on a biweekly basis (ideally in person) for coaching, progress reviews, coping with challenges and to provide moral support. Many advisors have served for 10 years or more and can offer newer advisors special insights based on their experience.

Requirements for the position:
• The desire to make a difference and

• The willingness to spend time to do so.
• A positive can-do attitude.

You don’t need an HR or recruiting background to be a HJS advisor.  Through the initial advisor training, bi-annual training updates and the support of the President, Leadership Team and other advisors…HJS will take care of the rest.
