Career Coaching

Career DirectionGoose Creek Coaching offers career coaching and career testing to help clients develop a career road map and strategies for career satisfaction and success. We've learned that virtually everyone benefits from career assessment and testing, career and employer research, interview preparation, assistance in the job search, and reference checking. Our relationships with experienced recruiters and executive search firms also benefit our clients.

Services like these are especially important, as the job market has become challenging for everyone from students to senior executives. As unemployment has risen, it has become more difficult to make the right career choices and having a career coach help in guiding through the process can make all the difference. Our career coaches keep abreast of current job market trends by reviewing available government data, speaking with corporate recruiters and small business owners in the area and through the news media.

High school and college students, unhappy workers, uncertain workers, terminated workers, returning workers and those attempting to advance their careers all face similar, as well as somewhat unique circumstances, which we address on a case-by-case basis.

Our career coaching program is a client-driven process, so you, along with our certified life coach, work to fashion the best program for you. As our life coach collects data, analyzes test results and accumulates a wealth of information on you and the potential markets for your talents, you have the chance to expand, explore and gain insights about yourself and the job market.

Whether clients are at the beginning of their career, trying to advance in an existing position or looking to make a move, career coaching helps clients gain insight about their personality, interests, optimal work environment, client learning style and client strengths, so they can plan the next steps. We can also help in transitioning clients in new jobs through professional mock job interviews, salary consultation and additional coaching.

Our low cost occupational, or vocational, testing is the foundation of our work with most clients. It has proven successful with teenagers headed off to college and senior executives looking to make the transition into other industries.

Our career program uses consultations and testing skills, aptitudes, motivations and interviews to provide job-matching by our Certified Life Coach, as well as a variety of optional follow-up services once you've begun to build your road map. Those optional services include interview preparation, academic preparation, targeting jobs, producing top-quality resumes and cover letters, consulting in salary negotiation and also consulting on assisting in the duties of a new position.
