Are you looking for a career coach? While there are many reasons to seek these professionals out, career coaches typically help people enter (or re-enter) the workforce.

By coaching people on their resumes, interview skills, and development, career coaches help workers find better jobs and further their professional lives.

Career coaches currently work in a variety of industries, including sales and marketing, nonprofit and social good organizations, healthcare and services, manufacturing, technology, financial services, education, retail, real estate, construction and development, and more.

Career Coach

If you're seeking a new job, exploring a new career option, or simply looking to improve your managerial or leadership skills, hiring a career coach can help.

Here's what you need to know about these professionals.

What do Career Coaches do?

Career coaches work one-on-one with clients to provide tailored and structured sessions.

They may, for example, focus on reviewing a client's resume, conducting interview prep, making goals and organizing plans to achieve them, and addressing specific work-related concerns.

What Impacts Career Coach Costs?

Career coaches charge in a variety of fashions. Depending on the career coach you hire, the following factors may impact their costs:


Career coaches are professionally-trained individuals from a large assortment of backgrounds. Because of this, the experience will affect their price.

More experienced coaches cost more but have more training and academic qualifications. Coaches may also charge more if they live in an area with a high cost of living.

Services Offered

Most coaches will price differently for a strategy session than they will for additional assistance with activities like writing cover letters or revising resumes.

Speak directly to your career coach of choice to get a feel for how they price their services and what comes at an additional cost.

Package Prices

If you can find a career coach willing to offer packages, you'll likely be in good hands. Because these packages allow you to get more services at a lower price than you'd pay for a la carte services, for example, they're a great way to access the most possible bang for your buck.

Career Coach Prices

While all career coaches vary, here's what you can expect to pay, roughly, for their services:

Hourly Coaching
