What Does A Career Coach Do?

What does a coach do

Do you feel stuck in your career? Do you feel stressed and overwhelmed? Would you like to expand your professional path?

A career coach is someone who can help you in your career—either to advance, to secure a new job, or to transition into a new position. A career coach can also be someone who helps you with starting your own business.

Here are some specific things a good career coach can do for you:

  • Improve your CV / Resume
  • Make your LinkedIn Profile More Effective
  • Develop your Personal Brand
  • Help you to get Found Online
  • Market Yourself to Potential Employers or Clients
  • Hone your Interview Skills
  • Navigate a Video Interview
  • Negotiate a Higher Salary
  • Transition to a New Field

Some things (like networking, interviewing, salary negotiation, or office politics) are notoriously problematic for many of us. However, working with a career coach can give you personalized solutions that make them a lot easier and more comfortable for you.

A career coach is always on your side encouraging you and supporting you. When you question your ability to reach your goals, your coach will motivate you to keep going.

A career coach will help you to recognise what jobs and opportunities are best suited for you based on your talents, personality and ambition. These can be detected through discussion, testing and probing questions. The best coaches are very honest and will tell you what you can realistically do, how you can achieve it and what your limitations are likely to be.

Using active listening, structured goal setting, and undeterred encouragement (and sometimes you’ll be challenged), a career coach will help you overcome the hurdles that are in your way. Whether you’re looking for a new job or striking out with a business of your own, a career coach will help you strategize and execute on your plan.
