Promotion or Career Path Changes
In the United States, changing careers is not unusual. Researchers have noted that only about 25% of the population stays at a job longer than 10 years, which reflects a shift in jobs and promotions over the last century. It is safe to say at some point, you will be faced with a change in your career path. Major career changes happen when you are prepared to make a change, as well as when you are unprepared to make a change. If you are facing a promotion or a career path change, talking with a coach about career changes may help you plan your new career direction after a promotion or career change. Career coaching may include resume coaching, career transition coaching, and help with choosing a career coach to receive career change advice and information.
What to Expect From a Career Coach
Career coaching may entail discussions about workplace self-improvement which may include convincing your boss you need a promotion. Life coaching may be valuable as well to determine future career goals, especially after you receive a promotion. Coaching for a promotion or a major career change differs depending on what stage of your career you are at: whether you are just starting out, or in mid-career. While getting a promotion is a wonderful milestone in your life, it is a step on the ladder of milestones you want to get to before you change careers or continue further past your promotion.
