Successful career changes require a multistep strategy that must be tailored to your individual circumstances. Here's how career coaching can help.

    For all career changers

    • Understand the values that are most important to you in your work and how to add those elements in your professional life.
    • Identify your interests and skills.
    • Envision a satisfying career path (including a satisfying retirement).
    • Develop a support system (including your coach) who can provide encouragement for your efforts and celebrate your successes.

    Looking for your first job, or a new job

    • Identify your career options using psychological strengths assessments, interest inventories.
    • Identify jobs that would match your strengths, skills and interests.

    • Refine your social networking and social media strategies.
