Why career coaching could work for you

When you’re stuck in a role that makes you miserable, or know where you’re headed career-wise but aren’t sure how to get there, then career coaching could work for you.

Career coaching has really taken off in recent years and with good reason. No longer a tool for those earning a high income, access to a skilled and experienced career coach is now more accessible than it’s ever been and can yield positive results for jobseekers.

Here are just a few of the benefits career coaching has to offer:

Working with your skills and experience

Although you might already know your CV like the back of your hand, it really does help to get an objective third-party view of your skills and experience.

Working with a career coach can help you see yourself as a whole package from the perspective of an employer and give you insider tips and tools to help bring your talents to the surface and make your CV shine.

By highlighting your key strengths, a good career coach can help you focus your attention on making the most of them in front of a prospective new employer.

Creating a clear career path for the future

Everyone likes to have career goals, but it can be tricky to know what your aiming for if you don’t have the key knowledge on what you need to achieve to get there.

What qualifications might you need? How much experience would an employer expect for the particular role you’ve been dreaming of? What could help set me apart from the competition? A career coach with expert insight into what it takes to be successful in a wide range of roles can give you the information and the steps you’ll need to take in order to get there.

Your personal brand

Personal branding is a relatively new term when it comes to job seeking, but if you can present yourself as the entire package then chances are your career goals won’t be too far away.

From setting your own personal mission, communicating your values through your CV and building a network of professional contacts through social media platforms such as LinkedIn, you’re creating a strong personal brand that far outreaches the impact of a CV alone.

Having an experienced career coach at hand to help guide you through this process and support you on your journey towards the position you want is a good investment of your time if you’re serious about your future.
