What does a career coach do?
A career coach can help you break down challenges and barriers you encounter in your professional life. Whether they be small and specific, or big and general, a career coach is equipped to help you identify new ways to think about career-related challenges, while helping you develop skills that you’ll be able to take advantage of in the future.
What sort of things in particular can you help me with?
I offer a variety of services! Some of the things I can help you with include resume and cover letter writing/advising, interview coaching, mock interviews, LinkedIn profile coaching, networking (especially for the introverts among us), negotiation, navigating professional relationships, action planning, goal and value assessment, and more!
How does this work?
Generally speaking, we’ll begin with a free 30 minute chat [link to contact/booking page] so we can assess your needs, answer your initial questions, identify what would actually be useful to you, and figure out a game plan moving forward. Once we’ve gotten a pretty good idea of what we’re looking at, I’ll send you 2-3 coaching package proposals (pricing details included), tailored to your needs. From there, you choose the one you like best. We’ll start as soon as you’re ready!
How flexible is the scheduling of sessions?
As flexible as you need it to be. Generally, sessions occur once a week, but I’ll work with your schedule as much as possible. Weekend and evening session times are available to accommodate full-time work schedules, parenting responsibilities, school responsibilities, work styles, and other life obligations.
What can I expect as far as turnaround time for resume and/or cover letter writing?
Standard turnaround time is 3-5 business days. However, this is negotiable and can be altered to fit tighter schedules.
