Online Career Coaching & Mentoring
Careers have changed immensely through American history. When the country was first begun, jobs in the American Colonies were either as servants, farmers, or tradesmen in a small business, such as silversmithing or blacksmithing. As time has progressed, jobs have changed. Agricultural jobs have moved to manufacturing jobs, which have moved to more technology and service-oriented jobs. In the past, an employee could look forward to working at the same job for his entire life, and to receive a pension throughout retirement. He usually worked in manufacturing and performed the same tasks at 60 than he did at 20. However, times have changed. Most adults stay at one employer for about 8 years, and rarely work the same job for more than four years. If you are transitioning to a new job, or looking at working in another field, career coaching may help you reach your job goals.
What to Expect in Career Coaching
Career coaching may entail discussions about job skills and job goals, as well as life coaching to determine where you want to be in the future, and the steps you need to take to get there. Rather than traveling to a career coach, you can access one over the phone or through voice chat to help you figure out your goals for your career and help you develop a pathway for obtaining your goals.
