SHOULD YOU HIRE A CAREER COACH?

"You know you need outside help from a career coach when you're stuck in any phase of the pipeline of bettering your career or changing it," says Kathy Caprino, career coach and author of "Breakdown, Breakthrough: The Professional Woman's Guide to Claiming a Life of Passion, Power, and Purpose." Career coaches can help you find a job or, more broadly, a career. They can support you while transitioning industries, starting a business, honing specific skills or performing better at work.

But here's the thing: Some coaches are great at helping you, and others are totally winging it by Googling exactly what you're Googling. That's why you need to know how to find a quality coach, what to pay and what to expect from sessions – before you invest your time and money.
What should you look for when choosing a career coach?
"Literally just about anyone can start calling themselves a coach," says Lisa Quast, career coach and author of "Secrets of a Hiring Manager Turned Career Coach: A Foolproof Guide To Getting The Job You Want. Every Time." That's why, she says, "the most important thing is really doing your research ahead of time to find the right coach."
