Should I get a Job Coach Certification?

A job coach certification, also known as a career coach certification, is wildly popular in our current economy. Many coaches are focusing their studies and choosing to expand their businesses by getting a job coach certification.

Is a Job Coach Certification Legally Regulated?

No. You do not need a job coach certification to run a private coaching practice. The client will decide if they want a job coach certification included in their coach’s resume. The job coach certification process ensures the coach has spent a minimum amount of hours studying and practicing their coaching competencies. It does not ensure you are getting a master coach, or the perfect coach for you.

My personal opinion when looking for a job coach certified in career coaching, is request a consultation session. Some coaches offer a full (45 minutes to 1 hour) free session. These coaches are the ones you want to seek out. They know that you need to discover how your coaching relationship will serve you from personal experience. They trust you will receive transformation and growth in your very first session. A real coach is confident they will provide you with all the certainty and excitement you need to invest in a coaching program and puts your needs first. This is revealed in their actions of allowing you to make the decision after a free trial session.

Coaches Are Changing the Job Market

Coaches with a job coach certification are changing the lives of people who are desperate and out of work.

A job coach certified in career coaching will often help you discover and take action in areas that will increase your chances of being hired and applying to the jobs that are right for you. A great place to start right now is to ask, “Is this the right job for me as a coach?”.

    If you are really passionate about helping people find the job or career or position that is best for them, then I would recommend a job coach certification. I did my Senior Thesis at Princeton on a computer program called SIGI that helped people choose careers because I was planning on the time on becoming a career counselor. The reason I wanted to become a career counselor was because I know that the job and career that you choose in life is one decision that will have a major impact on every other aspect of your life! You spend more time at work than anywhere else during your normal waking hours if you work 40 to 5o hours a week.

    Thanks for sharing!
