    Need professional help with your career?

    If you're seeking professional help with your career - you need to make sure that you are working with the right person i.e. someone who can really help you and move you to where you want to be.  First - ask yourself why you are seeking professional help with your career:

    • Are you after a career change?
    • Are you interested in building your skills?
    • Do you want a more rewarding career?
    • Do you need help with what you're going to do next?
    • Do you know what you really want?
    • Are you aware of all your options?
    • Are you struggling in the job market on your own?
    • Do you need some support and guidance through your transitions?

    Once you are clear about why you're looking to get some career guidance in your next steps - then ask the professionals you will potentially work with some questions. Make sure they are worth the time and money you will be spending on and with them. Make sure they know what they are talking about and are in a position to help you with what you really need...

    • Ask the career coach or career guide what real life career experiences they have had
    • Where have they worked before, what did they do?
    • How many changes in their career have they actually gone through themselves?
    • You need someone who understands what it’s like to have really lived through these experiences
    • You also need someone who listens well as well as transmits and communicates well
    • Your coach needs to be able to give you a sense of direction and forward movement
    • They need to be able to work with you and support you until you reach your end goal
