Carmine is more than just a resume writer. He provided me with professional guidance and the tools for me to develop my short term and long term career plan. He was helpful to me because of his knowledge of the finance/accounting industry, but his skills can help job seekers in any career field or profession improve their resume and job searching skills. Carmine is honest and provides constructive criticism without being rude or condescending. I will definitely use Carmine's advice to propel my career forward. Thanks Carmine!

I have been seeing Susy for almost two years and she has been my life saver! When I first started I was going through a terrible divorce, I was severely depressed, had lost 30 lbs, and the will to go on. With Susy's coping tools I have been able to find my inner strength, gain self-confidence, and restore my life to a balance. I am even starting a new career! I am eternally grateful for her help and guidance.

Ian, I just felt the need to take a moment to thank you for what you’ve helped me with. I would like to say you’ve helped me with work and my career but that’s not quite accurate. I would like to say you’ve helped me in my personal life but I can’t say that either. I would like to say you’ve helped my achieve levels of happiness and to see the world for what it is in ways I haven’t been able to in years. But I cannot say that. The truth is I can’t say any one of these things because you’ve managed to help me in all of them. I have long seen people that just seem to have their life together and I wondered why, with all of my intellect and empathy why my life is not the same? It took me some time and the help of many for me to see that I was the one getting in my own way. But one thing has helped me more than any other in my quest to improve and that was my time with you. I would absolutely recommend you to anyone looking to improve themselves or their business without a shadow of reservation. I realize everything in life is a journey and the journey to improve is the longest as it never ends and it’s never easy but I feel like I can see like I haven’t been able to before. So thank you mate, I hope someday I can repay you for the help and insight you’ve given me. Thanks brother, looking forward to that beer and some F1 races with you!!

My husband and I went to consult with Ms Williams regarding family issues. We needed guidance with how to plan for ourselves as we navigated various issues within our family. Ms Williams was professional and listened carefully to what we were saying and then clearly set up goals that we could work for after each session. Ms Williams is caring and kind and listens to your problems. She makes observations and suggestions that can guide you to a greater understanding of what needs to be done to accomplish your goals. We were so thankful for her help and guidance.

Where do I start with this woman. She is the best coach ever. I couldn't of dreamed up a better coach. She has gone above and beyond what I would think is her duty as a coach. She found me resources and other contacts that I could utilize for my goals. She has helped me fine tune my skills and approaches for my career development. Sends me texts to check in on me and held me accountable on following thru on action plans to ensure I was making traction. She is always responsive to my texts or calls. What amazes as well is she knows what I need or what I should think about before I even do. Her situation analysis skills is not just for the current situation but she considers all aspects of of my life and what I want for the future. And if there's something I haven't considered she brings that to light as well. I couldn't have progressed so well in my career and even life if it wasn't for her.

Nadjejda was the empowering and supportive coach I needed to help me make career and health improvements. Nadjejda used her intuition to deeply understand my personality, goals, and tendencies, and then tailored her coaching approach accordingly. Nadjejda was caring, comforting, and tactful in helping me reach my own realizations and challenging me to step out of my comfort zone and stretch myself. I successfully made the changes I wanted to make thanks to Nadjejda’s support!

Jaret is an incredible mentor! I've been following him for a little more than three years now on YouTube, on his blog, and am now a member of his Peak Mindset Academy. I first discovered him through his 365 Series, in which there is a video for every day of the year. He talked about a wide range of topics that helped me get to know myself on a deeper level - everything from the ideal morning routine, to why porn is bad for your brain. All the videos are pretty high quality as well, which surprised me since he uploaded a new one every day without a decrease in quality. I signed up to have a personal call with him, and it was incredibly insightful. We talked for a while about what motivates people to do what they do, he told me what motivated him, and he also helped me out with some personal issues. Talking to him and following the material on his website really keeps my life on track. It's good to have a life coach just to have an outside perspective, and Jaret has been a fantastic one to me. Highly recommended!

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

What is a life coach?

A professional, accredited life coach works with people to help them make important changes in their life, either growing in their profession or changing gears in their personal lives. They help clients turn their dreams or wishes into realistic, attainable goals. They guide people through the process of making life changes by helping them evaluate the steps they must take to reach a particular goal, then help them decide how — and whether — to take those steps in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible. A life coach acts as a motivator, strategist and accountability partner. Unlike a therapist, a life coach doesn’t help solve problems from your past — they’re focused on helping you move forward with new ways of acting and thinking that will help you reach your goals. Some people specialize in particular types of life coaching, including life balancing coaches, small business coaches, executive coaches and personal finance coaches. Some meet clients in person, while others hold consultations over the phone.

Regardless of which type of life coach you’re interested in, make sure the person holds an International Coach Federation (ICF) credential. There are three tiers of credentials: Associate, Professional and Master, which require coaching experience ranging from 100 hours to 2,500 hours.

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 a life coach cost?

A life coach helps clients set and reach professional and personal goals, develop positive habits, and deal with stress. Some people meet with a life coach once or twice, while others form an ongoing professional relationship, meeting regularly in person or on the phone. The average national cost to meet with a life coach ranges from $80 to $130 an hour. Some coaches offer per-session pricing, especially for one-time meetings; expect to pay an average of $100-$125. People who want to work with a coach over a period of time to explore life transitions, career growth or lifestyle changes may be able to get discounted pricing in a package. For example, three 60-minute sessions cost an average of $300, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $350, and four 60- to 90-minute sessions plus unlimited contact between sessions cost an average of $400. Some specific types of coaching, such as relationship or marriage coaching, cost more than standard life coaching. For instance, three 60-minute relationship coaching sessions cost an average of $500, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $550, and six 60- to 90-minute sessions cost an average of $650 when purchased as a package. Training and experience can also affect the cost of hiring a life coach. An Associate Certified Coach, who holds a certification that requires only 60 hours of training and 100 hours of coaching experience, will charge less than a Master Certified Coach, who typically has at least 200 hours of training and 2,500 hours of coaching experience.   

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.
