Learning About Your Career Interests

It is not uncommon for high school, college students, and even seasoned professionals, to not know which career direction they want to take next. They simply don’t have enough information about themselves or the job opportunities to make the decisions they are expected to make at such a young age.

Personality and Career Assessments

In addition to coaching, we use Personality and Career Assessments to give people more information about themselves and the range of careers that exist. These assessments take into account their personality, interests and specific duties of each job or career. After using assessments and coaching people feel they have a better understanding of the career direction that is right for them.

How Can a Job Coach Help?

All in all, a job coach will help you gain the knowledge, confidence, and connections you need to get a job and career that you love and find fulfilling.  We can even do post-hire onboarding coaching to help you adjust to the job requirements, personalities, and company culture.

Format for Coaching

All job coach, career coaching sessions are via Zoom video platform only. Sorry, we do not provide in-person sessions.
