FAQs to the Career Coach

What is Career Coaching or Career Counselling?

Career counseling and career coaching are similar in nature to traditional counselling. However, the focus is generally on issues such as career exploration, career change, personal career development and other career related issues. Typically when people come for career counseling they know exactly what they want to get out of the process, but are unsure about how it may work.

Why Do I Need a Career Coach or Career Counsellor?
It’s not a sign of weakness to have a coach. Every famous and well-known sportsman has coach because we get distracted easily and it’s very difficult for us to spot our own weaknesses. We don’t know what we don’t know. By having an experienced and impartial coach you will get strategic guidance following  a set of holistic programs that will help you to reach your goal faster.

Just imagine you are lost in the forest, do you think it would be quicker, easier and more efficient to walk on the footpath than go on the sidetrack on your own? What if your decision is going to cause direct impact to your career forever?

 

How Much Should I Invest in Career Coaching/ Career Counselling?
It depends on your circumstance and what you want to get out of the program. All professional and experienced coaches do not charge for their initial session.  Alarm bell rings if someone asks for a consultation fee in the first meeting whether it’s a face-to-face or via videoconference. As a client, you should feel comfortable and see benefits in engaging the right coach. By sharing your issues, your coach will be able to  make a customized program based on your needs and the level of investment you are prepared to make. Therefore there will not be any nasty surprises.

Do You Assist Me in Finding the Right Course for Further Education?
Career coaches aim to maximise your chances landing a job based on your current qualifications and experiences. However it’s up to you if you would like to do a part-time course whilst searching a new job, that element will be considered when we customised the program.

As a Career Coach/Career Counsellor, Can You Find Me a Job?
Occasionally I do make introduction to business owners if any of my clients may be suitable for their openings. However there is no guarantee that I will place you to “a” job because you might neither like nor want it.

Can You Help Overseas Clients?
