Top 10 reasons Why Career Coaching is Right for you?

If you are really serious about your career, then you should consider hiring a career coach to help you advance your career. Read on to understand why career coaching is important for building a great career.

  • Right advice from the right people at the right time. This is one of the biggest reasons why you should consider career coaching. Do not waste precious time searching for jobs and attending wrong interviews which you never wanted to in the first place. Career coaches can connect you with the right openings and guide you in making the right choices.
  • Hone up your interview skills. Career coaches are great resources to depend on for preparing you to make that cutting impression in an interview. They can coach you on the possible questions you might face and how best to answer them.
  • Identify your potential and set career goals. Not all are lucky to understand their true calling in life early. Career coaching is an excellent way to identify what you are good at and set goals accordingly.
  • Motivation. Career coaching keeps you motivated and committed to your career goals.
  • Enhance the resume. A good resume can work wonders to get that dream interview call and career coaching services are great in developing impressive resumes.
  • Upgrade your skills. Career coaching ensures that you do not lag behind in skills for lack of training by letting you know what you should be updating yourself on.
  • You are not finding a job, but a career. Career coaching starts with an in-depth assessment of your personality, strengths, weaknesses and passion so that you select the work that you love. And when you love what you do it becomes a career which stays forever and not just a job.
  • Work pressure and challenges. Career coaching is not just about finding the job, it is a continuing relationship where the career coaches mentors you in resolving work place challenges.
  • Healthy work life balance. Personal life is as important as work life and career coaching can help you strike the right balance between both.
  • Be confident, grow and move forward. Career coaching improves your confidence at work and in yourself. You understand clearly what your potentials are and can confidently make strides in your career.

How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

Are you considering approaching a career coach? And, is the thought of high fees holding you back? Don’t, because career coaches are not all that expensive to hire. Before you approach a career coach, it would be a good idea to understand how much a career coach would cost you.
The charges of a career coach would depend on his experience, credentials and the services he is offering. A session to define your career strategy would of course, be more expensive than a session to write a cover letter or to revamp your resume. Depending on your budget and needs, you can choose for hourly pricing, group sessions or packages. Each of these carries different rates and advantages.
Hourly charges. Most career coaches charge on an hourly basis. This is a popular option and has many takers. Choose any service you wish and take the required number of sessions. You will be billed based on the number of hours taken. There are many coaches charging between USD 150 - 500 per hour to higher depending on their expertise.
Packages. Many career coaches offer packages to their customers. If you are looking for discounts, it would be a great idea to opt for the packages rather than individual services. The packages are ideal to get a variety of services at a lower price. The biggest advantage of selecting a package service is that you can take multiple sessions at a reasonable price. Career coaching is not a quick affair. It takes time and to get the best results you might need to attend several sessions.
Group sessions. Many career coaches offer group coaching sessions that are perfect for people looking for economy services. This way you can avail of inexpensive services and can also benefit from the experiences that other group members have to share. But it has its drawback that you will not get 100 % attention as in an individual session.

What is the difference between a career coach and a career counsellor?

The terms career coach and career counselor are often used interchangeably. Though these two share many common aspects they are not one and the same. Both career coaches and career counselors are professionals who aim to guide and help the aspirants to advance in their career. Essentially both perform similar functions. So where is the difference?

  • Defining you vs. understanding you. A career counselor more or less helps you to define yourself. Most of us must have had the first contact with a career counselor during the final years of school or college, where a counselor provides questionnaires or aptitude tests to help you discover your talents and potentials early. A career counselor takes an educational and holistic approach to assess the current situation and provides you with advice on the right steps you should take in your career. The approach of a career coach is totally different. Rather than helping you to define yourself, a career coach takes the time to listen to you, understand you, your aspirations, strengths, weaknesses, your life’s calling and points you to the best-fit role.
  • Counseling vs. coaching. A career counselor tries to understand your current situation, what are the challenges you face and what is holding you back. He may draw out an action plan for you to remedy the current issues you are facing and advise you on how to better them. A career coach takes a different approach. He tries to understand not only the current situation but also probes deeper into all dimensions of your persona, steers you in the right career path and simultaneously takes all the needed steps for resolving the current challenges.
  • Advisor vs. best friend. A career counselor plays more of an advisory role, where once he gauges your issues, he advises you on what should be done. A career coach is more than just an advisor. He is your most trusted friend, philosopher and guide whom you can fall back on for any career- related issues.

But, that’s not just what career success can be counted on. A person must feel happy about what he/she is doing at work. So, it matters how you describe a career success.
