Confused about career change?

By Shirin Khamisa | Advice

Change your career. Do it your way.

Dear All,

How do you enter a cool swimming pool?

Do you dip a toe in to get a feel for the temperature?

Do you use the ladder, slowly lowering in as you get comfortable with the cool water?

Or do you take the plunge and just jump right in?

Just like entering the pool at different speeds, flexible coaching can help you make a career change–at the speed you want.

Whether it’s exploring your options, developing an action plan to make the transition, or applying to new jobs with a great new resume, coaching works with you wherever your are in the process, to get you into the new job pool.

That sounds…refreshing!

The resources below will give you new ideas for moving forward. 

Best read poolside, of course. Happy reading!

Ask a coach: When can I start coaching?

Dear Career Coaches,

I know I want a career change, but I have no idea what I want to do. I feel like I need to have this nailed down before coaching will be helpful. What can I do to be ready to get the most out of coaching?
