Making the decision to improve your professional life through career coaching is only the first step. The big question now is, how do you choose the right career coach for you? If you can afford a personalised service such as the one offered by OrientaEuro – or if you are eligible for a governmental subsidy to access its services almost for free – you do not need to worry about this: OrientaEuro’s director will do the matching for you among its 30 career coaches, based on a pre-questionnaire which you would receive.
But, if you have no other choice than to tackle this decision by yourself, here are a few things to keep in mind and help you with your decision.

Career Coaching in Brussels – is there a Coach for everything in Brussels?

excess-of-career-coaching-offers

There are many career coaching services offered in Brussels. In fact, in my opinion, there is a surplus of “career coaching in Brussels”, which negatively affects our profession and more seriously, hundreds of thousands of young people and adults.

In Brussels you can see the word ‘Coach’ applied to any activity you could imagine: not only career coaches, but a wide range that covers everything from ‘bicycle coach’ to ‘food coach’. And what about ‘shopping coaching’? I’m not joking, all this exists and is promoted!
