My work with Coach Mike has been significantly life changing, literally! In just a short time, he has helped me to get my thoughts, goals, and dreams out of my head and into a realistic workable plan of action. I needed direction concerning my career and finances---and a step by step plan on how to get there. I couldn't seem to figure it out on my own, not to mention the lack of focus and discipline to see it through. Coach Mike was able to provide me with great feedback and useful resources in initiating the process. I know that this will not be easy, but I am convinced that because I have had his guidance to assist me, I will experience success in the areas of which I am determined to excel.

Jenny coached me through my job transition, provided accountability in this uncertain season, and cheered me on through every job lead and interview! She reviewed my resume and gave me ways to improve it from a content and design perspective. She provided resources to better speak about my experience and encouraged me to keep going when I was rejected. I especially loved her hands on coaching through the interview process - she even interviewed me based on my resume and provided helpful feedback to help me work through bad interview habits. Having my position eliminated was a heartbreaking experience to work through but I’m so glad that Jenny was able to help me through the process of writing resumes, connecting with others, and interviewing successfully!

Kevin's training and coaching approach is welcoming, and relaxed. I have personally been coached by Kevin and always felt I had not only his ear and guidance, but his support. He has a very unique way of defusing any situation and guiding participants to discover successful solutions. My career took on a whole new meaning under Kevin's coaching and mentor ship. Although I was in the correct field, Kevin assisted me in finding the specific job duties that allowed me to utilize my gifts and move from a job I enjoyed to a job I love.

I have worked with Zane over the last two years. It has been a very rewarding experience. Zane is not only smart and able to quickly understand what I am communicating, he asks questions and provides insight that helps me focus on the elements I can work on most efficiently. In addition to personal growth work, Zane has also helped me make a career transition that was intimidating and confusing. I have no hesitations on recommending him as a counselor. – Jesse

My experience with working with Valarie has been wonderful. I wasn’t sure what my next step should be in my career. She was able to help me get out of my head and look at options that would be a better fit. She helped take away the fear of change and gave me the confidence to move forward toward a career that I am passionate about. Valarie was able to take all my confused thoughts and look at them succinctly in order to come up with a plan. That was no easy task! She is straight-forward and gets right down to business, which I appreciate! Valarie is very friendly and invested in your success. I would highly recommend Valarie!

From an unplanned conversation about transitioning in life turned into an opportunity to challenge myself to becoming more centered in life and maintaining a positive energy. John's natural sentiments allow him to connect and relate in a way that brings out confidence and clarity in mindsets. Sharing 3 month worth of coaching time has impacted my perception invaluably - and the timing couldn't be any better. Before the sessions, I split my mind between several struggles in different aspect of my growth. During the sessions, we broke down the barriers by finding common views and relating them to my true bona fides. After the sessions, I have a mandate to understand my contribution in life and remain positive and grounded. Memorable times when a slouched self would walk into the sessions and come out confidently believing in a profusion of positivity. I have enjoyed my journey to confidence, and I am very grateful to John for the guidance and support.

    My first job out of college was a nightmare that I didn't know how to wake up from. Sarah worked with me for 8 weeks, and in 9 weeks I had found another career path for myself. My experience with Sarah didn't end there. I received mentorship and life coaching during that time, but the journey continued. I know Sarah will always be supporting and guiding me on that journey for years to come. Working with her is a more than a career jump or timeline, it is life altering and lasts years.

    I’m glad I didn’t click away, working with Anthon was the best career decision I ever made. I first signed onto thumbtack when I was going through a career change, and needed someone to help me with my resume. When Anthon sent me his profile initially, I thought to myself, this guy has got to be too good to be true, he had industry experience from Microsoft, had reviewed over 50,000 resumes, and hired over 2000 engineer. I was excited and skeptical at first, but it turned out to be a great match. Anthon not only optimized my resume, he used his network to set me up with mock interviews so I could get practice with real engineers. He introduced me to tons of closed networking groups where jobs are advertised, and was willing to use all his resources to help me achieve my goal of breaking into the tech industry. I started talking to Anthon around December, and by mid february, I had received a great job offer, but he didn’t stop there. He helped me create a model for salary negotiation which got me a 10k raise on my offer. It’s a no brainer who you should work with, because Anthon is the best person for the job.

    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.
