reer Coaching and Counseling is a relatively new field that is gaining a lot of ground lately. Have you ever considered the possibility of getting help in the job market? Today, more than ever, career help is making a strong statement. Finding jobs, though better right now than in several years (according to the Department of Labor) is still very time consuming and fraught with many new rules. The workplace is full of new technology, practically hundreds of job boards and search engines, recruiters who generally are fresh out of college and perhaps do not know how to evaluate job skills and many other state of the art technological advances that many of us have not been exposed to.
How do I find a good Career Coach?
Finding a good, honest Career Coach can not only help when you are out of work but can also help when you are gainfully employed. Looking to advance your career may be an important goal for you but you may not have the time to pursue it due to many other responsibilities: “It can also help those who are facing a downsizing/rightsizing situation or those who are just plain unemployed. The role of a Career Coach basically helps the unemployed, the underemployed and the over(qualified) employed.“ says Machelle Thompson, an Independent Career Coach and Legal Counsel.
What services does a Career Coach offer? A Career Coach can offer a multitude of services to include:
There are many ways: Google Career Coach, ask a friend or relative if they know of anyone, and by checking your local news sites and social media for Career Coaches.
What is the Cost of a Career Coach?
That will vary depending on the services you require. A good Career Coach should be able to give you a free 30-minute phone consultation and then write up a plan with pricing along with other details.
Do I have to go to their office? No, many Career Coaches can do everything on the phone and will make it as easy on you as possible.
Finding a professional, full-service and priced right Career Coach can be full of benefits and can help anyone from the college student who moved back home after graduation to the Senior Citizen who is looking for some part time income to add to their social security check.

State Legal Briefs
Florida: State Minimum Wage Rises
Starting January 1, 2018, Florida’s minimum wage rose to $8.25 per hour, up from $8.10 – a 2% increase, due to inflation. Employers can still pay workers less than minimum wage if they are eligible for the tip credit under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and if workers make up the difference in actual gratuities. However, businesses must still pay tipped workers a base wage – which will rise to $5.23 per hour.
Employers need some information on FLSA may contact HR Pros, LLC. www.hrprosllc.net or firstname.lastname@example.org.
