About a Career as a 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. You might also provide services such as writing resumes, leading career training programs, or providing outplacement services for corporations.

As a career coach, you might work with job-seekers and career changers of all ages and backgrounds, or you could specialize in providing career coaching services to diverse populations such as the disadvantaged or entry-level worker, entrepreneurs, mature workers, military, senior-level executives, unemployed workers, or women.

As the owner of a career coaching business, you will have the freedom to choose the types of clients and career coaching you want to do, and enjoy the financial rewards of being your own boss. For example, if you work with career changers at the executive level you could earn $150 or more per hour.

It's been a while that I've been thinking about starting a career coaching business. This guide gave me all the practical information I needed to be confident that I can succeed. I received an offer from the leading employment website in my country to develop a proposal on career coaching services. With the guide my dreams are now a reality.

  • How Much Money Do Career Coaches Make?
    Career coaches in private practice typically charge fees anywhere between $50 and $500 or more an hour for an individual coaching session – quite a wide spectrum. Generally speaking, a competitive hourly rate for career coaches working with an individual one-on-one over the phone ranges from $100-$150. If you are working with clients in person, this rate would be higher (sometimes as much as 50-100% higher), taking into account added travel expenses and time. Fees for training programs are typically charged by the day. Fees vary, but it is not unusual to charge several thousand dollars a day for a training program. One trainer interviewed by FabJob charges $1,500 for a half day and $2,500 for a full day, plus $1,500 for program development (if it is not a program she usually presents). Other trainers charge from $500 to $7,000 or more per day.
