What is career coaching and why so many people are looking for a career coach?
Do you really need one?
I am sure these are the questions crossed your mind.
Coaching comes from the world of sports and the arts, where athletes and actors receive coaching so that their work will become extraordinary instead of just okay. Basically, coaching takes people from good to great.
The biggest mistake I keep seeing people making is not realising that when it comes to your job search it’s not enough to be great at what you do, you need to be great at letting others know you’re great at what you do too. And this what a career coach will do for you.
Career coach can help you to find career direction, understand and maximise your strengths, accelerate your job search and career development, maximise your potential, support you through a career change, help you strategically explore your options, develop confidence, amongst many many other things.
Here are 4 reasons to work with a career coach:
#1 CAREER COACH WILL ACCELERATE YOUR JOB SEARCH
Having a career coach will maximise your chances and you will see results faster.
#2 CAREER COACH WILL HELP YOU TO DEMONSTRATE YOU ARE THE BEST PERSON FOR A JOB
The main job of a career coach is to show you how best to describe and pitch yourself and what your value is to a prospective employer, assist you with the preparing your answers and ensure that you are telling the right story through your CV, cover letters, LinkedIn profile and when answering interview questions, which increases your chances of securing a job you really want.
#3 CAREER COACH WILL PROVIDE HONEST, UNBIASED FEEDBACK
Family and friends are often not the most qualified or reliable to give you an objective feedback. Unlike your best friend or significant other career coach will get to know your skills and provide an objective feedback tailored to your search and career goals.
#4 CAREER COACH WILL MINIMISE STRESS AND ANXIETY
Career coach will empower you to take action, overcome setbacks, and maintain your focus. I will help you to deal with challenging feelings like rejection and self-doubt in healthy ways rather than allowing them to sabotage your progress.
To my clients I keep saying "think of me as a career fairy godmother who will give you the tools to succeed in your job search."
Having an experienced and trusted adviser who understands the recruitment process by your side really makes a difference.
