I am very thankful for my time working with Joel. He was my career coach a few years ago and the insight, confidence, and direction he gave me are very helpful. You could really tell that he is passionate about what he does and I felt like he actually cared about me. I didn't use his resume service, but next time I need one done I definitely will. I highly recommend Joel if you are looking for a career coach or life coach or even mentor or anything like that who actually cares.

Bennett has been amazing! I am brand new to working out, and he has made taking the plunge much less intimidating. He coaches on everything from nutrition to lifestyle and does a great job of explaining why we're doing particular exercises a certain way. He plans each workout differently and always keeps things engaging. I can't recommend him enough.

I chose to work with Todd Smith for many reasons. His free interview is a nice touch and shows an ethical commitment to allowing potential clients to meet him and interview him before spending money. It is also a nice touch that his fee is reasonable! I sought relationship coaching with my wife after working with a counselor that was a good listener but offered very little direction. So we decided to try the coaching approach. Todd offers the best of both worlds - having the knowledge, insight, and background of an experienced counselor and the skill to motivate, teach, and promote change of a life coach. We feel so fortunate to have found him and highly recommend him to those who are highly motivated to do the challenging work of change and growth!

    Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) - "Some people die at 25 and aren't buried until 75." Some people might find this quote scary, as if after 25, one starts to lose hope, dreams, and passion for life. Katie's life coaching strategies can help get your passion back, look at life in a different way, and create actionable steps to accomplishing goals. "Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord." [Romans 12:11]

    I was a skeptic of these kind of programs and thought that i had a firm grasp of the issues that plagued my personal and professional life. After a few sessions with my life coach I realized how wrong i was. During the process, lets call it my life transformation my life coach Amy Klous made each session very pleasant and enlightening. I left each time feeling positive and eager for more. I cant speak for anyones issues but the problems i had were unaware to me and with the guidance of my life coach I was able to rectify many issues i had and laid down a foundation for me to continue to grow on my own. The tools and knowledge I obtained through this process are priceless to me. I want to thank Amy for everything she has done for me and she told me that she wants updates from me while on my journey showing me that she is not just in this for a job, but that she truly cares for my wellbeing.

    CareerSherpas was founded on the idea that where one person can improve their life dramatically, everybody deserves the same chance to succeed. What's with the name? Sherpas are the native mountaineering guides of the Himalayas who have been relied on for successful ascent of the highest peaks for generations. Their daily work as climbing and terrain experts allowed many expeditions to succeed against impressive odds. I took on the moniker CareerSherpas to express what I look to achieve for my clients: Reaching the pinnacle of personal success. My own career has had ups and downs, but I've learned a lot about the trajectories that can be set if you aim high and want to share that success and knowledge with others. What makes CareerSherpas different? CareerSherpas was founded on the idea that where one person can improve their life dramatically, everybody deserves the same chance to succeed. I don't live in an ivory tower; I work in the real world and see every day the trials, tribulations, and enjoyment that work can bring when you're doing what you enjoy. I came to do this because people often struggle with knowing and accepting what they really want to do or even realizing that they aren't doing it. I know what it means to develop and prosper in a professional career with a balanced and busy life, not because I've studied it, but because I live it every day. Who am I? My name is Peter Fitzgerald, and I am an ex-patriot Australian information technology professional with a broad array of experience in all the many facets of IT, but that doesn't really start to explain how I wound up offering to help people with their careers, does it? In a lot of ways, it does! I started out helping friends, family, and colleagues discover opportunities for growth, and in doing so, discovered a knack for connecting people with the things they really wanted to do and finding ways to help them do it. I believe in practicing what I preach, and have consistently been applying the same techniques and approaches to my own career that I use to help others. While my results may not be typical, I have been able to consistently improve my situation over the past seven years and get involved in work that invigorates and engages me. I want to share this success and help you set and achieve goals that make your life better. Contact me, and let me help you find a fulfilling, successful career for you.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
