  • Finding ways to handle job challenges
  • Setting career objectives
  • Strategizing for raises or promotions
  • Cultivating new job skills
  • Enhancing resumes and cover letters

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.
  • Aim to differentiate yourself in a saturated job market.
  • Require guidance in maneuvering workplace dynamics or organizational shifts.
  • 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.
  • Avoid hiring the cheapest or the most expensive coach because the price isn't the primary indicator of the quality of their services.

  • World Coach Institute (WCI)
  • The National Career Development Association (NCDA)
  • The Career Development Network
  • International Association of Career Coaches
  • Career coaching certification from a university

  • Are your coaching sessions available online, face-to-face, or both?
  • Could you provide references or feedback from previous clients?
  • Will you help me craft a resume and complete job applications?
  • Is there a special rate for those who are presently unemployed?
  • How many years of experience do you have as a career coach?
