Why You Should Hire a Career Coach For Your College Graduate

Recently, parents have started hiring me to work with their college-aged kids, especially those nearing graduation.

They want these beloved young adults to have a successful and fulfilling career. But with so many options and paths to choose from, it can be overwhelming for both parents and child.

That's where a Career Coach comes in.

Because while it's all well and good to spend THOUSANDS of dollars to educate your child, are you setting them up for success once their degree is complete?

Have they learned...

  • How to write a cover letter and resume that will actually get noticed in this crazy market

  • When asked in an interview, "Tell me about yourself", how to make it obvious that they are the right fit for the role by highlighting their skills and accomplishments rather than summarizing their entire life history

  • Tips for landing an internship

  • Guidance around how to build and leverage their network at the very beginning of their career

  • The importance of thank-you notes

  • How to confidently and comfortably talk about salary

I work with these special individuals to identify their unique strengths, interests, and skills, and understand what drew them to their area of study to effectively explore career options that align with their talents.

Investing in a career coach for your college kids can help set them up for success and make the transition from college to the workforce much smoother.

If you're interested in learning more about how some time with me can benefit your child, don't hesitate to reach out to me for more information.
