What Is Career Coaching?

What Is Career Coaching? Executive Connexions

Have you ever wondered if looking for a new executive level job could be easier? Have you wished you had support from an understanding job market expert? Maybe you feel you simply do not have the time to figure it all out by yourself?

There is a solution that can elevate you above your fierce competition: career coaching.

Career coaching is about getting the support, help, and guidance you need to figure things out to reach your ultimate career goals. A career coach is there to help you overcome whatever challenges you are facing in your job search.  In an ideal world we would all make time for reflection and self-development, but it can be hard to carve out this time. Working with a coach keeps you focussed and on track even when life gets busy so you will achieve results far quicker than you would on your own.

A career coach will never tell you what to do, but they can support you through decision making, and give you the time and space to talk about how you are feeling and understand what your goals are. The aim of career coaching is to help you understand what you want, the skills you need and how you can develop. A career coach will support you in making these initial steps, setting you on your way to a more fulfilling working life.

Career coaches are experts in skills such as career planning, CV building, interviewing and negotiation. While you may only search for a new gig or switch careers a handful times in your life, these professionals are up to date with current hiring practices because they’re constantly working to help job seekers.

Career coaches are experts in listening. They will listen to you, and together, you will start to break down your current situation and understand your needs. This is a very difficult thing to do by yourself; not always we can achieve this by speaking to friends and family, but often professional support is needed.

A great coach will help you think beyond the limitations you have set for yourself and be there to expertly guide you and cheer you on!
