Career Coaching is what you need, but it’s expensive
You’ve scoured the internet for solutions. Read a million blogs and lists. Re-written your resume a million times to try to get it perfect, but your still stuck.
If you’ve spoken to a coach, then you probably came away realizing that it’s exactly the type of guidance you need. However, the average career coach charges $1,500 – $2,000 for a 3 month contract.
Let’s get real – you’re out of work – you can’t pay thousands of dollars for someone to teach you how to find a job. You’re worried about making rent.
Job Seeker Sessions: 6 Months Unlimited Career Coaching
Affordable Career Consulting was founded to help job seekers build the right habits for themselves, and take a holistic approach to their job search while being accessible to everyone. We provide advice and guidance catered specifically to you with actionable steps to continue to move your forward.
For a reasonable fee you are able to consult with a coach to get practical, actionable steps to advance your career search.
What do we consider reasonable?
Our average 1:1 focused job seeker session costs between $20 – $25
How it works:
- You meet with a coach for a 30-minute initial intake session
- During this intake you discuss your search, your goals, where you think you’re having difficulty, etc. with your coach to create a detailed plan of action to take you through big and small difficulties you are having
- At the end of the call, the coach will come up with a “roadmap” for your progress based on your notes and assign you “homework” to complete before your next meeting
- You complete and return your homework and schedule your next session
- You have focused 15-20 minutes coaching sessions to discuss your progress, troubleshoot, and move forward at your pace
- Wash, rinse repeat until you either feel really good about completing on your own or you land your ideal job
Why is this less expensive compared other coaches?
Great question! As coaches, a LOT of our time is spent on “non-billing” activities. Finding clients, running our business, researching solutions, and especially keeping our clients accountable.
Job Seeker Sessions are different from traditional coaching in two big ways:
- Job seeker coaching is process oriented, more action-based coaching than our other offerings
- We leave the accountability up to you!
We will give you the tools, the guidance and the knowledge, but it’s up to you to put it into action by completing steps, returning homework and putting what you learned into practice.
We understand that at even our reduced cost might be a barrier for some, so to that end we’ve created different pricing options based on your budget to spread out the cost of coaching
