“If you’re looking for a change in your life, but aren’t sure how to go about it, you may benefit from seeing a professional in career coaching. Often, people know they need a change in their job, but aren’t sure how to go about getting it. Once again, someone who does career coaching can help you with your decisions. Career coaching not only helps you decide what you want to do with your life, but will help you devise a plan to get it.
Career coaching can be quite beneficial to you if you are facing a major change in your life such as job termination, retirement or are just looking for a change. Too many times, individuals in need of a job will grab the first job available just so they are employed. In some situations, the new employee learns new things on the job and discovers he really enjoys his new career and the opportunities it involves. In other cases, however, the new employee finds himself in a job that brings him dissatisfaction, which leads to unhappiness, stress and possible job termination.
With the help of career coaching, many of these unfortunate situations can be avoided. Your career coach will work with you on a one to one basis, evaluating your life, your career, your skills etc. From your first meeting with them, they will take every step to get to know you, and what you want and hope to accomplish out of life. Your first meeting with your career coach will be a “”get acquainted session”” with you talking with your coach and filling out forms describing your personal information.
Often you will be tested to determine what your weak and strong points are. Once they determine what you are good at, they go over your personal information to determine what your goals are for yourself as far as education, employment or career choice. Career coaching will help you to determine which of your goals are unrealistic and which are attainable. If it is determined that you need additional education to be able to seek the career of your choice, your coach will help you with any paperwork you need to get into an accredited school of your choice. They will help with paperwork for enrollment, financial aid and any miscellaneous paperwork needed.
If additional schooling is not an option or needed, your career-coaching representative will help you with creating a resume to present to prospective employers. Depending on your career choices, they may also have seminars for you to attend with other individuals such as yourself looking to better themselves. When the resume is complete and you’re ready to start job hunting, your coach will work with you every step of the way to help you. You will be given the opportunity to come back to see them on a recurring basis if you feel you still need their services.”
