3 Ways a Career Coach Can Help You Achieve Your Goals

Here are three ways career development coaches can help set you on a path to success.

Whether you are looking for a career change, working toward your next promotion or seeking a personal sense of accomplishment, partnering with the career development team at your university can help you achieve your goals.

Career coaches support and guide students from the first day of class to graduation and beyond. Here are three ways career development coaches can help set you on a path to success.

1. Finding the best career for you

Career coaches assist with career exploration, which includes salary negotiation and job search strategies. If you have questions about a particular career field, career coaches can help bridge that gap. If you are in the process of researching different career fields, they can provide you with additional resources and information.

2. Building networking and interviewing skills

Career coaches can also help you develop valuable soft skills, such as communication skills necessary for interviewing and networking. These skills are essential for finding a job as well as ensuring ongoing career growth and development. Coaches can help you practice questions that might come up in an interview and strategize questions to ask potential employers.

You can work with your career coach to develop a strong LinkedIn profile and identify professional organizations that will help you expand your circle. Career coaches can also help you begin building your personal brand so that you can effectively position yourself for desired roles.

3. Creating a resume and portfolio

Finally, career coaches help guide you through the job search process step-by-step. Herzing University’s Career Development team recently launched the Career Center, a diverse platform of career resources built to help students at every level. In the Career Center, you can create a cover letter, resume, e-portfolio or even a business plan with the help of your career coach. The resource center is available 24/7 so busy students are able to get the help they need when it is most convenient for them.

No matter what your career goals are, the Career Development team at Herzing University is ready to partner with you.
