Do you feel like you are just surviving in your current career? You’re not alone. A recent Gallup study found that in 2022 only 32% of U.S. employees were engaged overall. While it’s true that better leadership at organizations could help to solve this program, waiting for your organization to make those changes may take time and cost you your happiness in the process. Career coaching programs can help you now. Career coaching gives you the structure and tools to thrive, and not just survive, in your career.
Career coaching programs can help you to thrive in your career in a variety of ways:
They can help you find your direction. This is the first step to thrive in your career. Many professionals make the mistake of hopping from one job to the other without evaluating if their job or career is really the right fit for them. Career coaching helps you determine if your current career path is truly the right direction for your values and lifestyle. Once you determine your direction, you can make better decisions related to your career and what jobs would be a good fit for you.
They can help you with your job search. Whether you find that you need to switch organizations or switch career paths, career coaching programs can help you to put your best foot forward and stay on track with your job search. First, they will help you to create or evaluate your personal marketing documents. From your resume to your elevator pitch, they will help you to articulate your strengths and help you to stand out from the crowd. Career coaching programs also include interviewing prep, boosting your confidence before an important job interview. They will also help you stay organized and provide helpful tips for follow-ups and check-ins after your interviews.
They can help you with long-term success. Once you determine the right career direction, a career coach will help you to think about your long-term goals and then help you create a plan to reach those goals. For example, many career coaching programs will help you to develop a 30/60/90-day plan to help you set immediate goals for success. They will also help you to create your strategic career plan, focusing on your long-term career goals. Then, career coaching will provide you with accountability by helping you check in on and accomplish your goals. You don’t have to just survive in your career. You can truly thrive!
