Are career coaches worth it?

Working with a career coach is worth it because they offer insights and tactics to boost your professional development, either in your current role or in a new role. The counsel of a career coach illuminates fresh approaches to harness your strengths in jobs that best suit you.

How does career coaching work?

The process of career coaching works by:

  • Attending consultations to assess your strengths and job needs.
  • Outlining career decisions and long-term goals.
  • Building an action plan for salary negotiation or job searches.
  • Resume editing to suit each new job application.
  • Interview rehearsals to prepare for various settings.

How do you prepare for a career coaching session?

You can prepare for your initial career coaching meeting by:

  • Getting your relevant work portfolios and resume ready for feedback.
  • Compiling a list of your doubts and desires about your career choices.
  • Reflecting on your work-driven passions and motivations.
  • Detailing common challenges you've had in your current and past roles.
  • Outlining your goals for these coaching sessions.
  • Being open-minded to jot down insights and suggestions.

Always check with your career coach about their agenda for the first session, as each one might have a unique approach.

When do I hire a career coach?

Hire a career coach when you:

  • Feel uncertain about your career direction and stability.
  • Struggle to secure the raise you deserve.
  • Contemplate a career shift due to overwhelming stress or burnout.
  • Aren't growing professionally in your position.
  • Have difficulty discovering compelling job vacancies.

  • Find it challenging to pinpoint your ideal job.

How do I find a career coach?

Find a career counselor near you on Thervo. You can also find career coach references through LinkedIn, in online-coaching directories, or by asking friends. Request a free consultation first to see if their personality and approach suits you.

Consider these factors in your search:

  • Seek out career coaches with experience helping people in your profession.
  • Inquire if they've pursued any updated training or courses recently.
  • Request a comprehensive agreement outlining fees and terms of service.
