How do I choose a counselor?
Consider these questions in terms of what is important to you:

  • What kind of help do you need – has the counselor/coach worked with this issue before?
  • What relevant experience does the counselor have?
  • What is the counselor’s process?
  • Are you comfortable in the initial telephone conversation with the counselor/coach?

How long will it take?
The number of meetings (in person or by telephone) will vary based on what you want to accomplish.
One career issue: 1- 4 hours
Job change: 6-10 hours
Career change: 8-14 hours
Social Media for Job Search (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook): 1-5 hours
People are generally more successful if they work with a career counselor over time in an ongoing coaching arrangement.
