5. The career coach is also a cheerleader. A cheerleader who wants job seeker to win, and win at job or career decision
What a Career Coach Cannot Do: The coach is not a therapist and cannot solve deep personal problems. However, coaching experience may be therapeutic with job seeker becoming more authentic in coaching process, simply by having a person who is interested in their welfare.
A career coach is not someone who can solve your financial problems either. Talking about what you need to do as a joint venture about how money affects you is a possibility in coaching process, but not how to spend or budget money. That's kind of advice a financial advisor is better suited to handle.
Lastly, a good career coach is a person who can celebrate with you when you have successes. The coach will be there when you need more information, resources, or just a pat on back. Go find one when you need career help.
