A Career Coach is a trained professional who will guide you through the complexities of skills assessment, job search planning, campaign development, career marketing and long-term career management. The world has changed extensively; coaching has become a much-needed tool to handle many transitions. There are more mergers and acquisitions, more job transitions, more self-employment, more downsizings and more small businesses.

Coaching is one key tool for use by both organizations and individuals to help achieve success in this new reality. Coaching focuses on the individual as a whole, their needs and the work they want to do. Coaching results include increase job satisfaction, accelerated career development, skill development, performance improvement, assessment, and reducing barriers and behavioral problems.
