At Create Your Career Path, we provide you with an experienced certified career coach or certified resume writer who will work with you to schedule flexible sessions — twice a month, three times per month, or as frequently as needed. Whether your focus is on determining career direction, conducting a job search or improving work performance, you will have access to one of our expert career consultants and career tools.
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions that our clients have as they consider working with us…
How does career coaching work?
Our process is a hybrid of coaching and consulting. As consultants we give you advice, we have a tried and tested process, and we provide you with exercises and tools (our workbooks are included in your coaching package) to achieve your goals. As coaches we ask for your feedback along the way and are here to ask you the right questions to help you come up with your own answers. You are in driver’s seat as much as we are and are an active participant in the process.
Why can't I figure this out myself?
Because most people don’t know every single thing they need to consider to identify their ideal career, make a smooth transition and conduct an effective job search, or improve their job performance. Plus, having a support system is a crucial piece of the process. One of our clients put it best: “You may be able to get part of the way on your own, but what good is finishing part of a marathon? You need to have a coach to get all the way and finish.”
Do you have references I can speak with?
Yes, we have references who would love to share their success stories with you. Contact us for more information.
What is your success rate?
We track our success rate by asking our completed clients if they got what they wanted out of their coaching. 95% of those people say yes so we are very confident in our services and know our tried and tested methodologies work.
How long does it take?
Typically, the process takes around 4 months but it depends on your goals, situation and the coaching package that works best for you. Our process is holistic and comprehensive: We coach you as a person, not drag you through a process, and we help you define your career goals from the inside out. We set you up for long term career success, not provide a quick fix. The bottom line is: we are not a “drive-through” service. We ask people to realize to truly be effective, this process takes time and commitment.
What results should I expect?
For career direction – You will know your direction and how to get there. For job search – You will have a professionally written resume with a 6-step job search strategy tailored to your needs. For work performance – You will receive a 5-step strategy to enhance your work performance within the next 90 days.
Do you do coaching in person or over the phone?
Both. We primarily coach over the phone but also offer sessions via Zoho Meeting or Zoom, and in person in the locations where we have coaches.
