Career Coach vs Life Coach: What's the Difference?


As a child whenever you were faced with a personal struggle you turned to an experienced expert to help overcome your fears. On the sports field you turned to a coach for advice, and in the classroom you were guided by teachers. As an adult, you can turn to a life coach or a career coach for help when you hit a crossroads at either your job or your personal life.

While a life coach and a career coach are both meant to offer expert advice, guidance and the necessary resources to help you when you're in need, there are some differences.
