The Process

How Does Career Coaching Work?


Many people wonder, “How does career coaching work?” The career coaching process varies according to your individual goals, and the amount of time and energy you can devote to the process. It is always confidential.  Depending on your needs, our roles may alternate between that of coach, consultant and teacher. The process may include one-on-one discussions, aptitude and career interest assessments, personality and values assessments, homework, reflection and, in some cases, role-play. Our packages range from two to six sessions and take from two weeks to two months to complete, depending upon your goals and how closely your sessions are scheduled together.
