Career coaches as far as the eye can see. We seem to be popping up everywhere, along with business coaches, life mentors and the Zen masters. But are we really worth the money? Do you really need one of us to help guide and support you to find a job? Well…in short, yes!
This ‘yes’ does not come out of us because we are career coaches and simply want your business; this ‘yes’ is the reason why we became career coaches. Instead of making this blog about facts and statistics about how many job offers you can get with a coach vs without a coach; we will focus on our personal reason for becoming a career coach and why we strongly believe in the ‘yes’ answer.
Many moons ago we started our careers as humble Human Resource Administrators, you can learn more about us here. As our careers progressed, we moved into the more ‘human’ side of our business. A large part of our work involved recruitment. Working for recruitment agencies and becoming internal hiring managers, we have years of experience reading resumes, interviewing candidates, and even letting employees go. This does not mean we do not know how a candidate feels. Somehow, we had to get our own jobs too. We have also been on the other end of things, looking for work, sending resumes, putting our best selves forward to interview.
Well, we are Career Coaches as you well know. We have the extensive knowledge and commit our careers to knowing the ins and outs of what hiring managers are looking for. We are hiring managers after all. From Resume coaching, Interview coaching, LinkedIn coaching and Job Analysis coaching we have tailored our packages to meet very specific needs. However, as we mentioned earlier, your needs may be a little more specific than others, you may have your resume almost perfect, your interviews need slight sharpening or you are simply unsure of your career direction, which is why we also have a Bespoke Coaching package on offer. Get in touch with us today and let’s see if we are the right fit for you.
We hope this blog has given you more insight into why a Career Coach may just be the best investment you make into your career.
