FAQs

What is a career coach?

• As the client, you are always in the driver’s seat making the choices. A career coach is someone who rides beside you guiding your decisions with a box full of maps, travel guides, GPS, and knowledge of the terrain. A good career coach is trained and experienced at focusing on your present life and your future (rarely their past), intently listening and asking questions, helping you to understand where you are, helping you ‘think outside of the box’ and helping you to find out what where you want to go.
• A career coach is knowledgeable about how the human mind works and wise about how the world of work operates. With these tools a career coach connects you with a greater understanding of yourself with a realistic understanding of how you can find greater fulfilment and purpose from particular jobs and occuptions. Some coaches are more knowledgeable about certain occupations and demographics than others, but if you are looking at a possible complete career change, a coach with a broad general knowledge of all industries and occupations is important.
• Career coaching uses career assessments and exercises, focused discussions around specific goals, and open counselling to explore and tackle difficult obstacles or issues.

What is the benefit of seeing a career coach?

(1) The benefit of a career coach is having access to an objective results-oriented person who is non-judgmental, creative and a great listener. They can help you reframe your current life situation and make sense of how to proceed from where you are.
(2) You will gain greater knowledge of your strengths, skills, values, motivators, interests and personality style.
(3) You gain access to specialised career assessments and an expert interpreter of career assessment tools and exercises. You may have seen or even completed many online career tests but not benefited from them because you haven’t been able to apply them to your particular career issue. A career coach will offer you relevant and appropriate assessments and then formally reports to you on these assessments and assists you to interpret the results in a way that you can immediately apply to your career situation.
(4) A career coach gives you a formal process or method of analysing your career requirements and a systematic exploration of career options.
(5) You will gain greater clarity about your career decision and a clearer path about how to achieve your goals.

How many career coaching sessions will you need?

• Adult clients, in general, attend 1-4 hours with a careers consultant depending on their particular career issue.
• Students generally require an initial 2-hour session followed up by a 1-hour session with a careers consultant to complete a full comprehensive assessment and reporting process.
