Why Hire A Career Coach?

People hire career coaches for many reasons -- some short-term and immediate in nature, and some longer-term. Here are 25 reasons you may want to hire one!

Hire a career coach to help you…

    • Update your resume and LinkedIn
    • Optimize your LinkedIn profile so that you’ll be found by recruiters and hiring managers in an active job search
    • Optimize your LinkedIn profile to align with all your professional pursuits
    • Develop and project a positive attitude

    • Craft persuasive cover letters and outreach emails
    • Create a list of references to share with employers
    • Prepare for phone screens and job interviews
    • Navigate through a thorny situation at work
    • Get a promotion or move from individual contributor to manager
    • Process a painful termination or layoff and identify the best way to describe it
    • Launch your career after college or grad school
    • Make a career transition into a different field/occupation
    • Undertake career reflection and assessment to determine the best path for you
    • Sharpen your job-hunt strategy to target growing fields where more candidates are needed
    • Learn (once and for all!) how to conduct informational meetings
    • Expand your network skillfully
    • Use network connections to get into interview pools
    • Receive regular coaching (e.g. once a month) to improve your job performance
    • Nail a finalist job interview
    • Negotiate a compensation package
    • Curate a portfolio of income streams
    • Have a sounding board with a neutral party on a temporary or long-term basis
    • Decide whether or not to pursue graduate school
    • Get support and guidance on your grad school applications

I can help you with one of these, or with several. My work is customized to the needs of each client and there is no commitment to a particular number of hours or a package of services. I allow two hours for every client meeting/call, but you may conclude the meeting/call whenever you like and I will invoice accordingly.

I just accepted the offer from [company]! I’m very excited! I think I will be a great fit and learn a lot there. The base salary is $20K more than my last job with a $10K bonus, so I’m very happy! Thanks for all of your help during this process. You really helped me define my story and be much more effective in my search.
