Why do I need a Career Coach?
Friends provide well-intended meaning but unfiltered opinions. Information in the internet is just too much, not validated and perhaps, not tuned in to local labor trends.
What will you do?
A Professional Career Coach offers clarity and a new perspective.
The Career Coach will equip you with the right knowledge and tools to design your personal workable career plan. This plan unlocks limitless possibilities. Unbelievable? The world is your oyster!
What's the difference between career development and job placement?
Career is a journey of lifetime experiences across paid and unpaid jobs. It’s a broader scope that entails work and life.
Job placement is about putting people into jobs. It’s seen as a direct recruitment function. Problem arises due to folks getting into roles that don't fit right into their interests and skills.
As a result, they get restless and fustrated with their career.
To ensure people are placed in the right job roles, a set of analysis has to be produced. This involves a myriad of 1-1 engagement and understanding.
Aside, there are also cases where the client knows their specific agenda and thus require only placement.
Why isn't my private career coaching free but local government agencies offer complimentary?
Trust me, we’ll love to!
But we got bills to pay.
We have worked tirelessly with our past clients to custom build an actionable career plan - specifically for them. They keep them for several years, gaining the ability to amend their execution radar because of this expertise.
Often, you'll find yourself totally immersed into an enriching 1-1 experience and not a quick 1-2-3 hassle to put you into jobs that probably you may not like. Of course, if you just need any paying job, we won't be having this career conversation.
Hence, a fair yet totally affordable honorarium is all we require – and if you don’t invest in your career – tell me, who will?
Am I right to say that the Career Coach will do all the heavy lifting for me?
The plan is ultimately yours. Only you know how to charter the route. Therefore, you should take charge. NO plan is workable if you expect the Coach to spoon-feed you.
The Coach guides and empowers you with a structured approach to execute this plan.
That doesn’t mean the Coach sits and talks without doing anything.
A Professional Career Coach supposes to put in the effort – and you feel at ease with the Coach. The Coach uses a variety of methods that include counselling and consultation. There are differences between each but we’ll leave it to the 1-1 program to explain further.
Can a Career Coach help me with job search, resumes and interviews?
You’ll need a convincing, authentic portfolio and channels to sell.
I just need a job to pay my bills. I don't need any career advice.
Sure. We get it. Reach out to any external sources for getting outplacement. That said, even if you get employed, you may not feel career satisfied.
You didn’t have a detailed breakdown of your profile that fits into suitable professions. Career is not just about jobs. It’s also about purpose and fulfillment. The Career Coach is able to fill in this gap. You also come this far to browse our website. Surely, there is something we can help in your career?
I am confused about my career options. What should I do?

Are 1:1 career coaching sessions online and confidental?
All sessions, 1:1 and in small groups, are 100% delivered via Zoom.

How are the sessions conducted?
For 1:1 career coaching, you can be sure that there are intriguing questions asked, not to interrogate, but to flesh out the key insights and steer conversations towards "aha" moments. That's the power of career exploration and discovery.
