We want you to get the most out of your Careers Coaching session.
This is why it's important to explain the limitations of the sessions. Coaching works when you have a goal, aim or idea to work towards. That way, the Coach can help you explore whether that goal, aim or idea would be right for you, and guide and encourage you on how to get there or what steps you could take.
If you haven't got a goal, aim or idea to work towards, then its's usually not the right time for you to engage in coaching. Rather, you should start by researching and exploring yourself. It's probably the case that you need to do your research, speak to your network, and gather information first. Once, you have more of an idea about what you want to discuss and work towards, that's where a Coaching Sessions can come in.
If you've booked your session to discuss a career crossroads or career planning, it's really important that you do some careful research before you speak to the coach.
This is because your coach can't tell you what career path to take.
If you don't know where to start, research 3 jobs or areas that interest you. Take a look at the Health Careers website, or our pages on career inspiration.
If you are simply looking for someone to give you information about a particular role, tell you what training is required, or what courses you should take to get there, then Career Coaching will not benefit you.
