Do you want better career choices? Do you know what career will suit you?

There is no other aspect of your life outside family and friends that is more important than your career. Yet people make career choices and find that they are in a career that they are not suited to.

In this new global economy where some occupations are disappearing and new areas of work are opening up, people are questioning their career paths and the meaning of work. For example;

  • Have you been passed over for a promotion you feel you have earned?

  • Are you bored in your job and want more challenges?

  • Do you want to earn a higher salary?

  • Are you returning to the workforce and are unsure of the relevance of your skills and how to utilise them?.

  • You want a career change and don't know how to go about it?

These scenarios are very common. There are many reasons people want a career change. Some people will spend a lot of time trying to make sense of where they fit into the workforce and become more confused about the options. They may find something that interests them but can't take the next step.

Many people seek the help of a career guidance counsellor or a career coach, while others use a number of online career tests. First of all let's look at career coaching.

Career coaching 

A career coach's role varies, Some work within companies and others work with individuals and groups. Most would say they focus on what is important to you now and assist you to identify what you want in your career. A career coach will assist you to focus on your priorities in life, to gain clarity and ultimately to unlock your hidden potential. It is action orientated. It has to be if you are to move forward.

How to choose a career coach?

No doubt there are many good career coaches - but how do you find them? What do you look for?

Credentials:  Choose a coach who has some recognised training and belongs to an industry accreditation that adheres to a code of ethics.

Credibility: Is the coach recognised within the industry? Has he/she got a active presence in the industry? Have they published or sought out as an expert? Have they been interviewed by the media?

Life experiences: Can they relate to your issues? Have they had real world experiences?
