I really enjoyed working with Kim. I worked with her for a short time but she was extremely helpful and provided me with great resources for me to start my own consulting business and to help me with some issues surrounding self care after leaving a difficult job. I do plan on working her again soon. I highly recommend her as a life coach.

Nancy Cohen is an amazing life coach. My husband and I went to Nancy to see if she could move us through some marital difficulties. She first explained what the difference is between therapy and life coaching and I instantly felt comfortable with her because of her honesty; she was not trying to "get our business", she was genuinely trying to serve our needs. She has a wealth knowledge and experience. I felt that I was being listened to and Nancy was very measured and balanced in bringing us through issues. I can say that I am much happier today than I have been in years as a result of my interactions with Nancy Cohen. If you want perspective, reality check, awareness, and hope them I suggest seeing Nancy Cohen.

Tiffany is a fabulous coach! I was really stressed out when I talked to her and she got right to the heart of my problem and made some excellent and easy to implement suggestions which reduced my stress. I would highly recommend her - she is a great listener and problem solver - and really nice person.

With Mary as my life coach I was able to fulfill dreams that might never have become reality . A stagnant artist completed a painting and showed at a gallery. She is sensitive and yet pushy in a good and needed way. You begin to see the thinking that always holds us back. My experience with Coach Mary was life altering and I recommend her talents to any one who wants more out of their life,no matter what age. Debbie W.

      Kelly's coaching has guided my life from destructive and chaotic patterns of self doubt to confidence, authenticity, clarity, and efficiency. Kelly empowers me to become the most genuine, confident, and real person I can be. Whatever hurtle I am trying to overcome, she helps me form tools and mechanisms to overcome those barriers. She helps me articulate real, achievable goals in the most concise and clear manner. Kelly challenges me to look at things from a different perspective and tackle whatever goal or problem I'm going through. After our conversations, I feel clear, confident, and authentic. I genuinely recommend Kelly Melsted for both personal and career oriented coaching.

      I am really pleased with the work that IO Franco Business Consulting provided. I needed a resume done and I needed some direction on where to apply and how to really nail a phone interview. I am so glad that I hired him over the other Thumbtack pros. I work with Eric and I highly recommend him. He was extremely efficient and I didn't feel like he was working off of a resume template or just going through a checklist. I am going to do more career coaching. Thank you so much for all of your help Eric.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What is a career coach?

      If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

      • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
      • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
      • Defining your career goals
      • Creating a plan for job searching
      • Improving networking strategies and skills
      • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
      • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
      • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

      Why is career counseling important?

      Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

      • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
      • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
      • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
      • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
      • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
      • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
      • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

      How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

      A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.

      How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

      When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

      What is a career counselor?

      If you’re feeling lost in your career path, overwhelmed, in need of a job but confused as where to start, or ready for change but uncertain what you want, a career counselor is a good choice for you. A career counselor is typically a licensed professional who has earned a master’s degree in counseling — likely with an emphasis on career counseling. Each state has different licensing requirements for career counselors, so be sure to research before reaching out to a pro.

      Due to their academic backgrounds, career counselors often have a more holistic and in-depth approach than a career coach. Career coaches are not regulated by states and also tend to be more business-focused — a good fit for those who know what they want but need help achieving it. On the other hand, a career counselor provides guidance and clarity around some of the more emotional aspects that job hunting and career movement entail. Career counselors meet with you in a series of one-on-one sessions. They assess your personality and learn what drives you. They get a detailed understanding of your work history and your hopes, and often work to help you discover any internal blocks preventing you from going where you want to go. Hiring a career counselor is appropriate at any time in your career, from recent graduate to executive-level management.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
