Benefits of career coaching

Working with a specialist career coach over a series of meetings can make a significant contribution to helping you achieve your career goals.

The main benefits of working with a career coach are:

  • Giving you an understanding of yourself from a career and work perspective
  • Helping identifying the right role and employer profile that you will thrive in
  • Helping you become clear and focused about what next in your career
  • Providing an external perspective on you and your situation
  • Help with implementing a successful job search programme
  • Moving into a new role quickly after redundancy or a career break

Typical outcomes of successful career coaching include:

  • Moving into a desired new role quickly and more effectively
  • A higher salary package, which may not have been a priority
  • Starting your own business
  • Achieving further career development within your current organisation
  • Reduced stress and improved home life

An outplacement or job search coaching programme is suitable for those who are clear about the next role they wish to obtain but who require help in marketing themselves to prospective employers.

These programmes can include the following:-

  • Self-marketing, includes writing CVs, covering letters, application forms etc that will be short-listed
  • Enhanced Interview, Networking and Presentation Skills
  • Campaign Planning
  • How to manage Recruitment Agencies/Headhunters
  • Negotiating the Job Offer
  • Strategic Career Planning
