Even when you’re qualified, it can be hard to find great executive jobs because there aren’t many of them, and there are usually multiple applicants. The good news is that an executive job search coach can help you get noticed in all the right ways and allow you to close the deal on your dream job.
How a Coach Helps
An executive job search coach will start by showing you how to create a network of people who can help you in your job search. If you already have a network, they will show you how to organize it. Next, they will work closely with you to help you better define your preferred job so that you can utilize the parts of your network that will help you the most.
A good coach isn’t just someone who gives you a few words of advice and then walks away. Rather, they will stay with you until you have found the job you have been dreaming of. They get to know you and your goals very well, and your search becomes their search. They won’t be satisfied until you are.
A person who is motivated to help find you the right job is invaluable, and they will help pick you up during the tough times over the course of your search. Finally, a good job coach will be experienced, and they will be able to tell you what is going on at every step of your search. Wherever you are, they’ve been there.
