Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs

What is a graduate coach?

A graduate coach is a professional who specialises in guiding recent graduates as they transition from the academic world to the professional realm. These coaches provide personalised support to help graduates navigate the job market, identify career goals, enhance employability skills, and create effective job search strategies. Graduate coaches tailor their guidance to address the unique challenges faced by individuals who are embarking on their career journeys.

Should I pay for career coaching?

The decision to invest in paid career coaching depends on your individual circumstances and goals. Paid career coaching can offer substantial benefits, including personalised guidance, expert insights, and tailored strategies to accelerate your career growth. Professional career coaches can provide valuable advice on CV building, interview preparation, networking, and career planning. While there are free resources available, investing in paid coaching can provide a structured and results-driven approach to achieving your career objectives.

How do I choose a career coach?

1. Training, Experience and Certification: Ensure your coach has the necessary skills, experience and credibility to guide you effectively.

2. Identify the specific area of career coaching you want to focus on, such as graduate coaching, executive coaching, career transition, or leadership development.

3. Ask for referrals from your network.

4. Research the coaches available through their online presence, professional websites and presence on social media platforms. Many coaches offer free initial consultations, and competitive pricing of their coaching packages. 

 

Choosing a career coach involves considering their experience, expertise, approach, and compatibility with your needs and goals. Look for coaches with a track record in your industry, positive reviews, and a coaching style that resonates with you. Schedule initial consultations to discuss your goals and see if there’s a good fit.
