Why is a career coach useful?
It is very useful to consider alternatives with a Coach when you are changing careers or jobs. A Coach can assist you to understand your strengths and priorities, and how to align these to your vision about life. There are many sites that have materials about strategies to get a new job.
However, a coach can give you a bespoken attention and will help you to explore wider and resourcefully your own goals and current situation. Coaching will give you the opportunity to explore in depth the opportunities you have at hand within your current career and job, and those opportunities that could be attainable if you want to develop a new one.
