We can be great procrastinators. It’s so easy and tempting to put off the hard work that needs to be done laying the foundation for a successful job search.
Students can be intimidated and made anxious by the pressure they feel to find the perfect job and career path. Many are reluctant to reach out to Career Services and often don’t want to take part in group workshops or watch on-line training. Well intentioned parents can often add to that pressure!
A great coach, Professor Terry Maltbia, said that a Coach can be described as someone who moves valuable people from where they are to where they want to be.
A coach is unbiased with no outside agenda. A good listener, the coach can help a student explore and create during the first year or two of college. Once the path is clear, a coach will hold the job seeker accountable, and keep them moving forward.
We know student life is complicated and busy. A great coach partners with students to create the space needed to take small regular steps toward success.
