How much does career coaching cost?
I want to look back on my career and be proud of the work, and be proud that I tried everything. – Jon Stewart
Career coaching fees vary considerably from coach to coach, and are usually based on the coach’s experience, background, and training. Generally speaking, coaches with more experience and training charge more than beginning coaches. Most coaches, however, typically charge in the range of $75 to $250 per hour.
Investing in your career plan is not for everybody. It's a considerable investment of time and money. Many coaches will ask for a 3 to 6 month commitment to ensure your success so you're looking at spending, on average, somewhere between $1000 and $2500.
When asked about the cost of coaching, one of the coaching clients interviewed by Noomii had this to say: "So there's pros and cons of both. At the end of the day, life is too short. You got to live the adventure. And I'm not here to live and die. I'm here to make things happen. Life is exciting. Hire the coach. Hire the coach. Get it done. Make it happen. You'll be better off. You'll feel better."
