What is the process of career coaching?

JJ1Typically, career coaching includes the following steps:

  • Julie conducts a complimentary phone call or Skype meeting with you to learn a bit about your specific situation and the reasons you have reached out to her for career coaching.
  • Julie will ask you to complete a written questionnaire and email your current resume, LinkedIn profile URL and any other personal marketing tools for her review and assessment.
  • You and Julie will work together to create an action plan summarizing the activities you will work on together.
  • Career coaching can consist of just one meeting, two to three sessions or more over any given period of time. Each person has different needs and strengths, so Julie provides career coaching one session at a time, rather than selling career-coaching packages of multiple, pre-determined sessions which can be costly and not necessarily effective.
  • Julie can also rewrite your resume and LinkedIn profile, and draft cover letters for specific job opportunities at an additional fee.
