Career Coaches In Illinois
Career Coaching FAQs
Career coaching helps individuals who want to find a fulfilling career that utilizes their strengths and complements their values and interests. Recent graduates, adults considering a career change, or those re-entering the workforce can benefit from working with a career coach, who will help them establish professional goals, create a plan, and overcome obstacles that may be in the way.
What does a career coach do?
A career coach may offer a range of services. On one end of the spectrum is the personal development side of career coaching that helps you answer the big questions in life such as, "What are you passionate about?", "What do you really want to do?", and "What career legacy do you want to leave behind?". On the other end of the career coaching spectrum are the technical job searching services such as resume writing, preparing for interviews, and developing job searching skills.
What are the benefits of hiring a career coach?
Support - A coach is there for you. They actively listen to what you are saying and what you aren’t saying. They will create a safe environment where you are comfortable and can talk without judgment.
Structure and accountability - A coach will set up regular coaching meetings with you (by phone or in person) and assist in developing a plan to achieve your career goals. They will provide the necessary accountability for you to achieve and exceed your goals, far faster than you would on your own.
Focus - A career coach will help you focus on what you really want to do and where you want to do it by identifying your values, interests, talents and passion.
Confidence and your personal brand - Career coaching can give you better awareness of your strengths, accomplishments, unique value proposition and your own personal brand.
Can a career coach help me find a job?
Yes! A career coach can help new grads, mid-life career changers, or those re-entering the workforce after several years find a job.
Can a career coach help me write a resume and prepare for interviews?
Yes! Whether this is your very first resume and interview, or you’re transitioning into a new career and need to highlight different skills and strengths.
