However, the role that has become so prominent within this sphere is that of the career transition coach.

The career coach will help you to explore you career options to understand what you actually like and don’t like all the while, understanding what you want your dream job to be.
You will be immersed in understanding what the challenges you face in your present job, why they are challenges, and arguably most importantly, what is preventing you from being happy at work. Is it lack of progression where you are? Is it your boss, or simply the organisation you work for?
There are some probing questions that the career transition coach will ask you to help you to get a better understanding of what your drivers are. One key question is your perception on your present work place, is it an opportunity for you or something you just do?
