If you are considering getting a career coach to help with your career direction keep a few things in mind.
There are many career coaches out there and very good ones at that. However, you need to do your research and find one that best suits your needs. Take time to look though the internet–Google career coaches in your area and compare what each one offers. You need one–at the end of the day–that suits your requirements and style. A big factor is: do you work well with them?
If you feel they listen to you, answer your questions and genuinely want the best for you (even if that means losing you to another career coach who may be a better fit) that is the signs of a coach that will give you the best (even the referral to another coach is a reflection that you will be in good hands.)
Also, talk with other people. Find out what makes that coach so good. Ask questions and make notes. Finding the right career coach for you will truly help you build an amazing career with the right/professional guidance.
