Become a Career Coach
Get Paid to Help People
Achieve Career Success
Imagine having a high paying career coaching people to achieve success in their careers. As a career coach you can have your own dream career by helping other people discover and get hired for theirs.
When you become a career coach, you will get paid to provide career coaching services to people who are seeking employment in fields such as the arts, business, education, health care, hospitality, law enforcement, technology, or other industries.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor's Current Population Survey, the average person will hold between 7 and 10 jobs over the course of their lifetime. That means plenty of opportunities for those who become a career counselor or career coach.

When you become a career coach, you will have an interesting, flexible, and rewarding career helping people set and achieve goals for finding a new job or getting started in a new career.

You can help clients explore career choices, or coach them through the process of applying for jobs and preparing for interviews.

As a career coach you could also get paid to provide additional services such as writing resumes, leading career training programs, or providing outplacement services for corporations.

When you become a career coach, you might choose to work with job-seekers and career changers of all ages and backgrounds, or you could specialize in providing career coaching services to particular types of people, including:

  • Career changers
  • Culturally diverse populations 
  • Disadvantaged populations
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Entry-level workers
  • Mature workers
  • Military (veterans or their family members)
  • Senior-level executives
  • Unemployed workers
  • Women (e.g. moms returning to the workforce, women executives, or women in nontraditional careers)
If you start your own career coaching business you will have the freedom of choosing the types of clients and career coaching you want to do. As the owner of a career coaching business, you can also enjoy the financial rewards of being your own boss.

For example, if you work with career changers at the executive level you could earn $50 or more per hour.Some career coaches also get paid thousands of dollars a day to lead training programs.

As long as you have the desire, you can become a career coach. No special education is necessary to get started in career coaching and succeed. (Unlike becoming a licensed career counselor which has strict requirements including post-secondary education.) While it may take years to become a career counselor, you can start career coaching and become a career coach immediately.

If you would like to be paid to coach job-seekers and career changers, the FabJob Guide to Become a Career Coach is for you! In this e-book you will discover how you can get started and succeed in a rewarding career as a career coach.
