In career coaching, clients weigh the value of their investment. They ask themselves questions like:
These are great questions.
Well, the short answer is that you don’t know what you don’t know. Even experienced human resource professionals don’t always have a rock star LinkedIn profile or a resume that really showcases their abilities to handle sensitive situations, lead a team, or build a dynamic and inclusive culture.

If you are insecure talking about why you lost your job, consider the confidence that a career coach can instill by talking through your transition statement.
