Because career coaching is a relatively new field, and one which may not readily come to mind when embarking on a job search, a resume is the first—and often only— tool many job seekers think about when embarking on a job search. So how can a career coach be of benefit to you?
Imagine that you are an athlete with tremendous promise. Now imagine that you have a coach who knows your strengths, your weaknesses, your abilities, your dreams and your goals – and who has the knowledge and training necessary to help you develop your unique talents and abilities to their full potential. A career coach does much the same thing, but their expertise lies in showcasing your skills and achievements.
A coach is goal-oriented and results-driven, will guide you through your job search, and provides you with valuable information unique to your specific career goals and job search.
