Career Transition Management

A strategic plan is the key to success in business and in your career. When planning a managerial transition or after losing your job, you have to recognise the emerging opportunities. With a systematic approach, intelligent re-positioning and sound decisions, you will be able to open up a range of fresh prospects for your professional development.

Suzanne Harttmann

As career consultant and specialist in managerial transitions, I will help you analyse your current situation, prioritise your objectives and map out a new professional future. I offer tried and tested methods, structured approaches and an enabling - and confidential - environment that will help you devise and realise a career strategy geared to results.


An assessment of your personal and professional situation – identify the opportunities and prospects in your new professional venture

An analysis of your strengths and weaknesses, skills and potentials, interests and objectives seen in the context of market demands

Advice and support in drafting applications and establishing a personal marketing strategy

Methods, tips and tricks for mining information on future tasks and employers

Coaching for first approach, contact and successful interviews


My consultancy services are geared to the needs of managers, business executives and freelancers who are seeking professional, targeted and structured guidance in shaping their professional future. I set out to help you identify and activate your professional and personal strengths, competencies and potentials.

We start by determining your current position: What are my particular strengths? Where am I better than others? What is my precise objective? What is the right job for me?

In the second step you assess the market: Where exactly is the greatest demand for the skills I can offer? What do companies expect? Who will decide whether to hire me and based on what criteria?

Finally, we will draw up a personalised strategy for approaching your target companies. We will look at the following issues: How do I recognise companies’ needs? How can I best exploit strategic networking potentials? How can I establish contact with promising employers? How should I present myself for maximum impact?
