Career Coaching – It Doesn’t Have to be All or Nothing

Kent Nolen

Q. I am very interested in having my resume updated, but I also think I could benefit from career coaching. It just seems like a big commitment and I am having trouble making the leap. Talk me into it!
A. I think it is great that you are looking beyond your resume and considering a more comprehensive career development strategy. Obviously, I am a huge proponent of career coaching. However, it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. Getting your resume updated is a much smaller commitment, but the process can be profoundly rewarding. It can also be a great entry point into a deeper coaching relationship.
While the bulk of my clients initially come to me for a new set of job search documents, the process of developing a new resume will often open clients' eyes to the power of a comprehensive strategy. The process can also bring to light areas of opportunity and help frame a coaching strategy.
Regardless of how you choose to move forward, taking a step is what is most important. So if it is easier to ease into it by focusing on your resume, start there.
