Why look for a Career Coach?

A 2019 study shows that 38% of Australian workers are unhappy with their current job, citing dissatisfaction with pay, job security, or level of interest in their work as the main factors.

Finding a job in Australia is also difficult, especially without local experience and an understanding of the market.  

Perhaps you’ve decided that the career path you took is no longer what you want, and you wish to steer it in a different direction – or you are looking to take the next step up in your career. 

If you’re stuck trying to kick-start your career in Australia or you want to take things to the next level, or simply want a change of pace, a professional career coach can help you reach your goals.  

But where should you start, and how do you know if a career coach is the right one for you? 

 First of all, think about whether a career coach is what you need. A career coach helps you focus on your future goals for work, setting action plans and strategies to help you reach your potential. 

 A good career coach will use evidence-based coaching models to create solutions that work for you. When looking for a coach, consider their style and whether it’s compatible with you. Is it open and free-flowing? Or organised and super-structured? Do you prefer a gentle approach, or do you want someone more challenging? 

 Here at Career Success Australia, our team of friendly and experienced career coaches have over 20+ combined years of industry experience and access to valuable job networks that will help you secure interviews and get noticed. We offer a range of coaching services with varied approaches to help find the kind of guidance you need.

Why a great Career Coach is also your mentor?

What is a mentor? A mentor is defined as someone who is focused on the long-term growth and development of the person they are mentoring – someone who provides guidance and wisdom to help you be the best you can be. 

 A great career coach’s role is exactly that – someone who invests in understanding you and your unique strengths and weaknesses, and how you can maximise your strengths to put your best foot forward in your career. 

 A career coach works closely with you to help identify and clarify your career goals and give you the insight and direction to move towards them, as well as work with you on any roadblocks that might be getting in the way of getting the roles you want. 

 A good career coach will give you the insight to reach your desired goals more efficiently and effectively than you would on your own, coming up with steps, strategies and an individual plan for you. They will challenge you while giving you honest feedback so you can identify your weaknesses and work on them. You’ll get support while being held accountable so you can grow in a positive direction for your career.  

 Not only will a great career coach help you establish clear goals, but you’ll learn how to work though problems with confidence. 

 Here at Career Success Australia, our career coaches work beside you every step of the way, giving you career advice that’s tailored to your personal skills, qualifications and needs. We offer support via email and phone consultation for job seekers at every stage of their career.
