Article research: Ever hired a career coach to help you hunt for a job?

November 17th, 2008

I’m writing a column on job seekers who hire a career coach (or career counselor) to help them polish up their resume, ace an interview, negotiate salary like nobody’s business, and essentially land a new employee position. If you’ve hired a career coach (or counselor) in the past few years for this purpose, I’d love to hear from you. Email me here. I don’t need to use your real name or your coach’s name. I’d just like to know how the experience went for you, approximately how much it cost, and what suggestions you have for others interested in hiring a coach.

Please note that I’m not interested in hearing about life coaches or self-employed folks who hired a business coach to help them grow their business. This is due asap, so if you don’t get to email me by Tuesday afternoon, don’t worry about it. Thanks so much.

UPDATE 11/21: Here’s how the story turned out. I managed to use the word “pulverizing” in it, which makes me happy.
