This article really sums up what a good career coach does to help clients accelerate their job search or move to the next level.
Looking for a great career can be seriously depressing when you spend a lot of time surfing job boards, sending out resumes without getting any traction. Worse is when you make it to the interview stage only to find out you’re the second or third best candidate.
A career coach should instill confidence, give practical tips and open up new paths that you didn’t see on your own.
I like the idea of a job search “bootcamp” – a group session with a career coach to help you set goals, develop leads for your search and provide support. Maybe something Career Fit Mom will offer in the future!
