The Value of Career Coaching
Think “Career Coaching” is limited to people with years worked in their fields? Employers have high expectations for new hires, too. Career Coaching to College Students has become Key to Making the Transition from Student to Employed.
We have all seen the headlines. Getting a job out of college can be challenging, and employers have high expectations, even for young adults taking their first steps in their careers. There is a clear gap between the skills students think they have to offer and what employers expect from them at work.
That’s where we come in.
Colleges may prepare grads for academic rigor, but often they are not giving students the roadmap required for career success. Career coaching has become key for new graduates making their transition from “student” to “employee”, and learning how to get that job.
Career coaching for college graduates is specifically designed to bridge the gap between college and the real world.

Critical thinking, problem solving, attention to detail, and writing proficiency top the list of skills managers find missing from job seekers’ personal tool kits.”"These Are The Biggest Skills That New Graduates Lack"
"Why Getting A Good Job is So Much Harder for Today's College Graduates"
“Workplaces are engaging in more on-demand or last-minute hiring, so students can’t know even months in advance what they need to know for a job, let alone before signing up for classes or before picking a major. We’re asking 23-year-old new graduates to act like 35-year-old experienced workers.”
