are career coaches worth it?

used those who charges 300-400$ to fix your resume, provide linkedin tips, and talk to you for an hour for some general directions. Did not think it was too much help.

what about long term coaches?

how do you choose them?

    Only thing a career coach can teach you is how to be a career coach

    I hired a resume writer a few years ago for 1k. But she wouldn't work on my resume without first having a few video sessions over Skype to get to understand my goals.

    I wasn't motivated enough to find the time. She returned the money after a month of trying to schedule the call. I still wanted her to work on resume and keep the money. That speaks to her integrity.

    10/10 would hire her.

    You should check out Jobalytics (link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/jobalytics-resume-keyword/fkiljfkkceaopbpfgfmjdnkiejaifkgd?utm_source=blind&utm_medium=social&fbclid=IwAR1OWWhbqbYPPQjze_2Du2qUCZ2UtcIjz4OXOIjaUzJJarBDqOD6uNXgFUY) -- a FREE chrome extension that can identify missing keywords from your resume based on the job description page. Most companies use application tracking systems to filter out resumes -- if you have the adequate keywords that reflect your skills and also match the job descriptions of the roles you're applying for, it could help you tremendously in the resume-screening part of job searching.
    Good luck!

    It’s a perk that execs get.

    I have found reaching out informally to mentors is more useful. Identify people inside and outside your organization who seem to be where you want to be in 3-5 years. And then talk to them on how it happened for them.
