I came across an article on how everyone can benefit from career coaching services (“Why A Career Coach? Benefits for Everyone” by Patricia Edwards. This article clearly defines the roles of a career coach, and explains how valuable one can be, whether in an economy with a challenging job market or a booming one. A career coach can help people in many different situations. Maybe you’re looking for answers on how to get the job you want, or maybe you are trying to gain a better understanding of an overwhelming number of career options. Or maybe you have absolutely no idea which career would be a good match for you. Regardless of your situation, a career coach can help you achieve your career goals.
Edwards identifies four key things that a career coach will help you do:
- Identify Career Goals
- Stay Focused & Accountable
- Enhance Signature Strengths
- Share Knowledge.
At Bright Futures, I’ll help you in each of these areas, as well as help you in gaining greater self-awareness to ensure the career goals you set are a good match to your personality, interests, and skills. I will also tailor a coaching program to meet your individual needs, whether it is helping with education planning, creating a plan for achieving your career goals, school or job applications, or any other area of education and/or career planning.
