There are many benefits to career coaching for professionals, but elevating candidate skills during a job search is mission critical. While job sites and recruiters helps professionals navigate the dizzying job hunt, a career coach can fast track the recruitment process by helping the professional prepare, build, and execute a strategy.
A career coach is someone who is trained to help a candidate discover their strengths to achieve their goals in the interview process. Sometimes that requires figuring out what those goals are and how to articulate those strengths to a prospective employer. Career coaches are invaluable for identifying points of failure in the interview process, from building a personal brand to dealing with the emotional side of the experience, but they’re especially adept at communicating those weaknesses in a constructive way.
Having a democratic view from the other side of the table is incredibly valuable to the job seeker.
