Partnering with Endeavor Agency in your professional career change journey helps you identify many more job leads and secure job interviews. We help you find job leads from job postings, recruiting firms and word-of-mouth sources.
Most candidates know of only four or five job boards, when there are hundreds! Most individuals simply do not have the time, knowledge or resources to find them all. Endeavor invested hundreds of hours in compiling a database of numerous job boards for you to utilize. The biggest frustration frequently shared by candidates is that no one from the employer responds to their application. Endeavor will help you identify key contacts inside your targeted organizations. Endeavor will find their contact information and help you craft verbiage to reach out. Most importantly, Endeavor will help you overcome the emotional challenges of reaching out to people you don’t know. These actions will improve your chances of securing an interview by more than 10x versus applying to a job and waiting for a response.
Individual job seekers generally know of only a few recruiters. There are more than 200,000 recruiters in the U.S. at hundreds of leading firms. These firms usually do not publicly promote their jobs as they prefer to search for candidates. As with job posting websites, Endeavor created a database of recruiting firms to help you identify and target the right recruiters for your personalized job search to improve your odds of securing an interview.
Then, Endeavor helps you find their contact information and craft verbiage to use to reach out. Most importantly, Endeavor will help you overcome the emotional challenges of reaching out to people you don’t know. These actions will help you secure countless more screening calls with recruiters.
WORD OF MOUTH
Studies have shown more than 80% of all jobs are filled via word of mouth without first being advertised. You have to place yourself in the conversation if a job lead is filled using this method. Endeavor will help you focus on companies you want to target. We help you identify key contacts within those organizations, make important connections and start conversations.
The main obstacle preventing most candidates from accessing this largest pool of potential jobs is fear. Endeavor will help you overcome the emotional challenges of reaching out to people you don’t know. These actions will help you uncover many job leads that are not advertised in the very companies for which you want to work.
Endeavor knows everyone goes through phases and changes in their personal and professional lives that push them in different directions. Endeavor listens closely to our clients to learn more about you as a person, as well as a professional, to help you develop a clear picture of what you truly want out of your careers and life. Then, our team will help you plot a course to reach your career destination.
Professional Career Marketing
Your professional career marketing materials (resume, cover letter, letters of reference and online profiles) should be updated and ready to distribute BEFORE starting to look for a new opportunity. Endeavor’s experienced and trained branding professionals will help you stand out from other applicants and make sure you are interesting and memorable. We help you present yourself as the best person to fill the open job you want. Our team doesn’t just provide tips and feedback on your materials. We do the heavy lifting of rebuilding your materials as well.
Interview Preparation and Coaching
Securing a first-round interview is great, but you will be competing against 10-20 other candidates who have similar experiences and qualifications. And that’s just the first step for most jobs at the C-suite level. Ultimately receiving the job offer normally involves multiple rounds and styles of interviews. You need to be outstanding and on-point during interviews in different settings – phone, video and in-person – to ultimately win the offer.
Endeavor Agency educates and prepares our clients to win the offer using the Proactive Interview Model. This proprietary system teaches you how to emphasize your value and navigate any interview to a successful close to secure the next step in the process. Your Endeavor agent will conduct live mock interviews via video conference to help you develop your answers and improve your delivery. The training, coaching and practice you get from Endeavor Agency will be the competitive advantage you need in the interview process. Additionally, Endeavor helps you prepare for each type of interview. Our team will help you analyze the company, job description and each individual with whom you will visit to help you gain every possible advantage.
During the interview process, most employers will push their positive aspects and try to hide any negative issues in order to fill the position. You need as much information as possible about the opportunity, instead of just what the employer presents you, to produce the best possible outcome for you. Endeavor helps you review the company culture and the specific job to find its good and bad qualities. Having our guidance in the evaluation phase can tremendously improve your odds of making good decisions that will lead to greater career satisfaction.
Negotiating your employment package by yourself can be a big mistake, according to business and employment experts. Negotiations, even friendly ones, are full of pressure. It’s difficult to not take things personally and remain objective since you are the product. This is where experience and guidance from Endeavor can more than pay for your investment into our services, as your livelihood and hundreds of thousands of dollars are potentially at stake. Negotiations involve many more items besides compensation that are very important for your job enjoyment, protections and career advancement. Endeavor has the experience to help you with all of the elements of negotiating your employment agreement.
Earning a new executive-level or C-suite-level job usually means moving to a new city and sometimes to a new state. This is a huge task and is very stressful for all involved. Endeavor will provide significant assistance for you to help make your move much less stressful.

Recruiting firms work for an employer – not you. Firms search for candidates for one job and the firm’s financial responsibility is to the employer. Firms also have no financial incentive to ensure you, as an individual, win that job offer. Firms will only help you with the opportunity they present you, and if you don’t win the job offer, you start the entire process over, potentially with a different recruiter.
Endeavor works for you – the individual. Our team helps you on multiple job leads and stays with you during your entire journey. We are financially incentivized to help you at every stage of your job search and to create advantages over other candidates seeking the same position(s) as you.
