How Our Career Coaching Services Work

Job searches can be complicated. Our career coaches bring a practical approach to helping you troubleshoot that process while helping you to navigate the situations that can arise in your job search and the related networking. Here is how our coaching services work:

CONNECT WITH YOUR CAREER COACH

 

Let us know what your goals are and your coach will build the right plan for you. It may be one session or it may be a regular thing - whatever works best for you!

INTERVIEW PREP

 

Provide your coach with a copy of the job description and details on who you are interviewing with before your session to make the most of the process.

YOUR COACHING

 

You will meet with your coach 1:1 to address whatever issues you are encountering in your search. Your coach will give you honest feedback and guidance during the session.

FOLLOW-UP

 

Some sessions include follow-up after the meeting to ensure that you are prepared for the interview or simply to check in with how it went.

Our Coaching Philosophy

Our coaching services are built with a practical objective - to help you land the right job for you. We aren’t a service that tests clients endlessly or evaluates all of the hypotheticals. Instead, we use our insights as recruiters and talent acquisition experts to help you navigate your market and real opportunities while growing your network in the process. Our clients appreciate the direct feedback and want to know the honest truth so that they can make the most of their efforts in the process.
