If you believe you have done everything you possibly can to find a job and you are just not having any luck, then perhaps it is time for you to hire a career coach! Yes, the current state of the economy is not ideal for spending money on the non-essential but this may be the solution for you!
These coaches provide sessions where they will help you to strategize and plan, and are usually around at any time to provide advice or answer questions until you feel comfortable on your own. The International Coaching Federation is one of the free resources available online to help you find the perfect coach if you do not already have a referral from another source.
Remember, when weighing the cost of how much money you will spend paying for this information and the amount of time you will lose by doing the search on your own, you should know that the average hour-long session is around $200. Also, keep in mind that a coach will help you along the way, but they are not recruiters. The coach will most likely only refer you when he or she is confident in your abilities.
I know I made the decision to hire a coach to help me find the right college in high school and though it was pricey as well, it was very helpful. However, it is not right for everyone. So if you have the money, and you have already done everything we have told you to do on our blog and you are still having trouble, take some time to research this option.
