The career search process can be confusing, so it's okay to have some questions before working with us. Below you'll find answers to frequently asked questions about our career coaching program and Sprout (ISA).
What services are provided through Prepory’s Career Coaching program?
Prepory’s Career Coaching program is a 90-day (or less) intensive that pairs you with a Career Coach who will guide you through the job search process. Your coach will perform an interests/personality assessment, target jobs, assist you with the application process and help you negotiate your salary. We recognize that each career search process is unique, so we have options for a-la-carte or other types of engagements. Contact us directly to learn more.
Who are the career coaches?
Prepory’s Career Coaches are part-time and full-time team members that have worked across several industries. All career coaches go through extensive vetting and training before working with any clients.
How do I meet with my career coach?
You and your career coach will communicate via phone, email, and video conference. The majority of the 90-day career coaching program occurs via regularly scheduled video conferences. You and your career coach will work together to select a time that works best for you to meet.
Are the topics related to general job searches, or tailored to my specific needs?
Your assigned career coach will provide you with both general and tailored advice. The job search process is extremely nuanced, so our program is mostly tailored to serve your needs, improve your strengths, and minimize your weaknesses.
What’s the time commitment for the Career Coaching program?
The Career Coaching program consists of a total of 17 hours. The first third of the program will involve intensive coaching and assistance. The following two-thirds of the program will be responsive to where you are in your job search process (e.g. interview prep and follow up for specific positions). Sessions will last about an hour and will be flexible according to your schedule. You’ll also receive unlimited support from your career coach via email and phone.
Is there a guarantee I’ll get hired after working with Prepory?
While Prepory Career Coaching alumni are hired 30% faster than the market average, there are no guarantees in the career search process. Our goal is to support job seekers and ensure our clients have the tools and knowledge necessary to successfully navigate the career search process.
How long does it take for your clients to land a position?
The average job search process is 5 months long, but the majority of our clients are hired within 3.5 months.
What cities do Prepory alumni typically get hired in?
Prepory Career Coaching alumni have earned positions all over the world, including Tokyo, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Miami, and New York. If you’re interested in moving to particular city, your career coach will work with you to identify opportunities in that area.
What type of jobs or industries do Prepory Career Coaching alumni work in?
We work with clients with all sorts of interests. Our clients have earned positions across an array of industries including finance, technology, education, and consulting.
What is discussed during the 90-day intensive career coaching program?
Although the program is tailored to your specific goals and skill set, our career coaches will cover the following topics: personality/aptitude assessments, goal setting, job search mapping, résumés, cover letters, online presence, job sourcing, interview prep, and compensation negotiation. Topics are subject to change in order to most benefit you.
Why should I participate in Prepory’s career coaching program?
The job search process is subjective and non-intuitive. You typically have one chance to impress a hiring manager with your résumé or during an interview and getting that chance takes time. Our average client earns full time employment within 3.5 months - more than 30% faster than the market average.
If I'm not ready for full-time positions, can you help find me an internship?
It depends on the industry and type of internship. You can contact us directly to discuss the options we have available for you.
