Frequently Asked Questions
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.
