Back To Work | Ask the experts: Hiring a Career Coach

Friday, September 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm • Organized By General Assembly Kansas City
Online Event

About

This session is part of Back To Work | Relaunch Your Career Post-Pandemic, a free week-long summit with the aim of getting your Career Back in Shape! Check out the full schedule here!

Choosing the right coach can feel daunting. How do you know who’s qualified? Who will help put you on the path toward your goals? Are they legit or just out to make a quick buck?

If you're thinking about hiring a career coach, bear in mind that not all coaches are what they seem. Although there are many reputable coaches out there who can help you with a career change, interview preparation, resume rewrite and more, career coaching can be rife with scams. Many career coaches have little to no experience in the field they claim to be experts in. Look into a coach's background and make sure you can talk to past clients independently before giving any so-called career coach money. An even better idea is to ask your friends if they have used a career coach.

Your chosen coach will be partnering with you on a very important and personal aspect of your life. In addition to the above criteria, you should get a sense the individual is passionate about coaching and genuinely cares about your success. Join us for this webinar to learn more about hiring and working with a career coach.
