Where to Find a Job Coach

A job coach can help you make smart decisions about your job search plan.

Job coaches work with job seekers at all levels. They can help you determine your strengths. Coaches often use skills and interest assessments to help you make career choices. They can offer advice on many topics. This may include skills, training, developing resumes, or writing cover letters or thank-you notes.

Job Coaches Can Help With:

  • Job loss transition
  • Defining career goals and using career assessments
  • Education, training, and skills evaluation
  • Labor market information such as wages and employment trends
  • Job search strategies for researching, applying, interviewing, and following up
  • Networking, job clubs, job fairs, and workshops

  • College career centers
  • Community centers or faith-based job seeker groups
  • Searching online for "job coach" or "career counseling services"

As you look for a job coach, ask about their experience helping people with a criminal conviction. If possible, find a coach who has practical tips on how to job search with a criminal background.
