Determining the direction you want to take your career can be challenging to do alone - and we are here to help. Career coaching services offered through VCU Human Resources will assist employees in owning and sculpting their own career, enhancing their ability to self-advocate and plan their career trajectory.
Career coaching is a type of one-on-one collaboration between a participant and a career coach. Participants discover, plan, and actualize their career goals while building career confidence. Throughout the career coaching experience, participants utilize various tools and resources with a career coach serving as their accountability partner and guide to planning and decision making.
These services are designed for entry to mid-level employees. For information on coaching for senior and executive level employees, see our leadership coaching page.
By engaging in career coaching, participants receive:
- Three virtual or in-person individual sessions with a trained career coach.
- Access to tools and resources to support the participant's progression toward their stated career goals.
- Support through an accountability partner to help build a plan and check-in on the participant's progress.
- Service offerings include but are not limited to: goal setting, resume building, interview practice and professional presentation tips and tricks.
