Top Career Coaches in Singapore

top career coaches in singapore

Who are career coaches? 

Career coaches have expertise in skills such as resume building, interviewing, career planning and negotiation, and it is safe to say they are experts in their field. These professionals are up-to-date with current hiring practices, and they are always on the lookout for new information and ways to help job seekers land their dream job or mid-career individuals to make a successful career switch. 

What do career coaches do? 

Career coaches assist and inform individuals who are in need of career advice by using a solution-oriented approach. Career coaches help individuals achieve their work-related goals and professional objectives by defining and redefining them. 

What do career coaches specialise in? 

While you may think that all career coaches are the same, and there isn’t a need to compare them, there are some differences when it comes to the areas of the specialty of career coaches. Some career coaches are experts in negotiating pay raises and employee benefits; others are better off with landing your interviews for your dream job.

Review 1

Kudos to Career Coach Gerald Tan and Avodah. My career journey has been made more meaningful by Gerald’s wise counsel and practical, actionable insights. Along the way, he exercised the warmth and care of a guide who is genuinely interested in helping me bring clarity to where am I, who am I and how to move forward in my career. The More Than Work programme helped sharpen the focus for me by equipping me with the Career Tools and Career Direction in living a life of purpose and meaning.

If you are seeking answers on how to reenergise your career, look no further than Avodah.

Review 2

Beyond the professionalism of the training and coaching, Avodah added immense value to my process of self-discovery and sense making of my career paths. I invited my best friend along to the workshop on Career Clarity and we were both surprised that we could still learn something new about each other’s career values, after 20 years of friendship. That was the trigger needed to answer some tough but necessary questions at our life stage.

The team at Avodah makes it a point to consistently build and affirm the strengths in others and that is invaluable in itself. Their mission to guide and equip individuals with self-directed action and ownership is well placed across the diverse learner demographics. Thank you for staying the course and keeping your mission alive.

Amazing service! The course was conducted very well. Would recommend it especially if you are looking for your strengths and weaknesses in the workplace and how to apply that to your craft. Really insightful information that helped me understand myself better and improve my career. Any person looking to change careers, break through their ‘plateau’, or work better with others should talk to Avodah. Thank you once again for a fun and useful time at the course.

Review 1

Most people might think that career counselling is only about preparing you to answer interview questions, and that does not even begin to scratch the surface of my experience with Vinod and Roberta. What is really unique about their counselling is that they take all factors into consideration, be they environmental, situational or part of your personality. This has given me a fresh perspective on things and I could not be more amazed.

Vinod and Roberta have been professional and non-judgemental every step of the way, and I cannot think of any others who truly have the heart for their clients. Although I may not have found all the answers yet, I am glad to have found counsellors who will journey with me and support me throughout the decisions I have made. Big thank you to you guys!

By Marisa Low

Review 2

Their service is unique, I think. There’s actual one-to-one time with the career counsellor who helped me understand my intentions. I now am able to see things clearer. A suggestion to others is, don’t waste your time psychometrics, as they don’t work when you’re stuck. These guys really help.

Review 1

I met Shubhangi after being out of work for 1.5 years due to retrenchment when my company moved the position outside of Singapore. She spoke to me about how I can approach the companies and what methods I can use in my job search. Even she didn’t realize how much she had helped me and I was able to get my current role with that advice. Definitely recommend her to any job seekers – a lot of times we don’t know what we are lacking. Shubhangi understands Singapore recruitment well to guide through the process.

By Subbiah Lakshmanan, Operations Director for a Media Company

Review 2

I met Shubhangi while changing jobs after working for the same company for about 12 years. She guided me throughout the process and helped me secure a job very fast after our initial meeting. With her expertise, she even managed to position my experience to get a higher package than I was expecting. Shubhangi has very good understanding of the local recruitment scenario and I’ll recommend her to job seekers who need guidance in their job search in a heartbeat.

Review 1

I have to admit that normally when I read sky high praisings I am always a bit suspicious, suspecting a friends favour. But then, I don‘t know anything else to say but this : If you ever struggle in your professional life, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with Sam. She is very sensitive, warm hearted and easy to talk to. She untangled the chaos in my head and guided me to a change in my life I did not expect but which I am very happy with.

Review 2

Sam’s coaching style was a blend: she used powerful questions that helped me figure out challenges I had been facing. She was supportive of my thoughts, frustrations, and attempted endeavors. She provided feedback and clarification for me too. She’s a solid, focused, and knowledgeable coach. She asked powerful questions that enabled me to clarify my thoughts, and also encouraged me to write her between sessions. Her coaching energized me and I was able to move through challenges and came up with deeper meaning due to working with her. I learned what is is like to be supported by a gentle, strong, powerful coach. She listened well to me, and I felt heard by her. I ended up understanding my motivations better and have more clarity around significant issues I was facing. I was able to keep moving forward despite some unexpected challenges and to juggle several projects simultaneously. I felt supported through the entire coaching round – and felt stronger and had more momentum to keep going and follow through. And, I felt more content. I also ended up having more clients and work, one of my goals.

By Peggy Linden, Coach, Facilitator, Consultant, Healer from Washington D.C. USA 

Review 3

I’ll never forget Sam’s first words to me – “You need self-care.” It was a wake up call, but not what I had expected to hear when I felt that I was at a point in my life feeling stuck and overwhelmed, juggling work and being a mum to two preschoolers. The coaching sessions have given me a fresh perspective on my career and motherhood, and ideas on managing the balance, but I believe what I got most out of it was the confidence and assurance that I was doing alright and I always have access to resources and support when I’m ready, to go even further. Thanks, Sam, for your support, and getting me started on this journey.

This is just a group of amazing people. They’re the ones who are professional yet personal. It is a delight joining their courses as they really put their heart to your growth, paying attention to every aspect of your development during your developing journey. More than that, they also create a group that has such strong camaraderie, that it is simply impossible to fall. Brilliant guys and well done team Mind Transformation!

A wonderful platform to learn with hands on experience. You are in a safe environment where you can expose your vulnerability. In the process you learn more about yourself and walk out stronger.

You will learn not only from the mentor himself, but also from the supporting ecosystem from the staff and participants too who came from all walks of life.

Indeed a life changing experience for me in embarking this learning journey. Thank you Mind Transformation.

My journey with Mind Transformations had set a solid foundation for my personal growth and development. The quality of learning is consistently top-notched. The team really lives up to the name “Mind Transformations”, and in fact, they don’t just transform mind, but more importantly, LIFE. The trainers and everyone in the team will never hesitate to go the extra mile to deliver value and experience which would literally transform the students’ lives. The graduate community that the team cultivated is even more amazing. With Mind Transformations, we have a safe learning environment with supportive and encouraging coaches, facilitators and fellow students from all walks of life.

Review 1

Wendy is my coach from a peer coaching programme. Knowing Wendy’s years of experience in leadership position from global enterprises, I look to her as my sounding board for both business and personal development related issues. As her coachee and a fellow coach, I must say that Wendy is definitely one of the finest coaches I have ever come across. There is an incredible calming quality about Wendy, which I believe comes from her inscrutable ability to listen deeply, so deeply she is able get you grounded instead of fluttering about. And from there, she would draw out key insights and perspectives that many coaches would have overlooked. Wendy is definitely a rising star and a force to be reckoned with in the coaching world. I would recommend Wendy anytime.

By Janet L. Business Director of IO Resources 

Review 2

Wendy was really helpful in my consultation with her. She can capture the essence of your character and your struggles very quickly and applied techniques that help you identify your wants and needs in a career as well as identifying what are the next steps of action to take. She is also very encouraging that by the end of the session, you do see light at the tunnel! Thanks, Wendy 🙂

By Nadia, Health and Wellness Malaysia 

Review 3

I worked with Wendy during my time in Mars. She was one of a few of my wonderful managers. She was strict, but caring to me. I learned from her a lot, from her working style to her leadership. The experience from that period of my life is really precious on my career development. If I have a chance to work with her again, I definitely will take it.

Review 1

It was an absolute pleasure working with THMC. The entire process was an eye opener, and very useful whether you’re looking to switch career direction or even just rebrand your professional self. THMC’s passion and genuine desire to help clients find the right career path is evident from the first meeting and continues throughout each session. I’m also a huge fan of the refreshing direct approach to tackling issues and cutting straight to the chase. I’ll happily recommend THMC to everyone (and return for further sessions where needed!).

I’ve done just over a year at my happy job now, and I’m having an absolute blast. Work is so busy, but it’s really energising, not draining. I’m in a supportive environment, where work-life-balance is honoured, and my opinion is sought and valued. I wanted to say thank you again for the work we did. I wouldn’t have found this place without your process – as I tell everyone, you didn’t let me get away with anything, but made me look hard at what I wanted. The result is better than I could have hoped for. Thank you, thank you!

Why do you need to hire career coaches? 

Career coaches can be helpful if you: 

  • Are feeling unfulfilled in your current role 
  • Want to switch to a different industry 
  • Wonder if you are on the right career path 
  • Applied for multiple jobs and still unable to score an interview

Engaging with a career coach may be the solution for you. Career coaches can guide you along your journey to finding the best career for you while providing new perspectives and offer solutions to your current situation. 

How can you benefit from a career coach?  

A career coach can assist you in figuring out what kind of job you are looking for and they can also help you create a new career path. A career coach can also advise you on your current work situation regardless of the type of work you do (freelancers, employees and even executives), guiding you to improve or develop your leadership, interpersonal, stress-management and conflict-management skills, and also building up on your self-confidence. 

When to hire a career coach

Contrary to popular belief, a career coach does not only help with submitting job applications to land your dream job but can also benefit you when you are in mid-career and want a career switch completely. You should hire a career coach to discuss your career plans if you are planning to leave your current job and switch careers before it is too late. Getting another perspective from a professional can be extremely useful. 

How to find a career coach? 

The most recommended way to find career coaches is through referrals from family and friends and word of mouth. Otherwise, there is always Google and Google reviews to help you through your search for a career coach. A career coach can make or break your career path, so be sure to choose carefully and wisely before deciding on the one to leave your professional wellbeing to their hands. 

How much do career coaches charge? 

There is no exact answer to this but typically career coaches can charge anywhere from SGD 100 to SGD 300 for a 2-hour face-to-face session. Face-to-face sessions are usually more expensive as compared to digital career coaching. However, while price does play an important role when deciding on which service to go for, you should also consider personal preferences and which type of service will suit your needs better. 

What to prepare before a coaching session 

After you have done your research and decided which career coach is right for you, ask them if there is anything you should prepare before the session. Every career coach is different, so you can’t assume that they would want the same things. Some coaches would want you to prepare your resume, while others want you to attend the session empty-handed. 

After you have found what you think is the best career coach for you, check with them on what is required of you before having a session with them. Every career coach has their own style of conducting a session. Some want you to prepare questions beforehand, while others want you to bring tangible materials, such as a list of your career goals or your resume. 

Who can become a career coach? 

Anyone can become a career coach because there isn’t a need for career coaches to hold a particular qualification before becoming a certified career coach. While there are a variety of courses offering career counselling certification programmes, such certificates are not indicative of a career coach’s quality. Career coaches’ relevant working experience, resume, and reviews are much more reliable tools to measure their quality than simply a piece of paper.

Career coach vs guidance counsellor 

While both roles seem to be pretty similar in terms of their job scope and the nature of the job they do, a career coach is not to be confused with a guidance counsellor. Guidance counsellors deal with students specifically, and they usually assist students with their academic paths rather than their career paths. As for career coaches, they typically advise individuals on their career path and is not limited to assisting students only. 

Money vs passion 

Should you choose money over passion? This question is subjective as it all comes down to what you want and value to most when it comes to choosing a career. While it is possible to hold a job that satisfies both money and passion, not everyone gets to enjoy the best of both worlds. More often than not, we have to choose between the two. If you are having difficulty deciding on the right career for you, hiring a career coach is the best solution.   

Conclusion

To sum up, a career coach can be extremely helpful if you are having difficulty making decisions regarding your career path or you are planning to switch careers or industries entirely mid-career. Do bear in mind that sometimes, a new perspective is what you need to make the right decision for you. Don’t wait until it is too late, start seeking help from your local career coaches, and it might be the best decision you have ever made.
