coaching for Early-career engineers and graduates

Create goals and strategically forward plan your future career. Jointly highlight gaps and strengths, reach agreement on actions and experience rapid results.

Some of the benefits of career coaching include:

  • Increasing self-awareness around your work, current situation and what changes you’re considering making in the short and medium term
  • Clarifying which role and job profile might suit you best, and how that fits into your overall career plan, when considering your next move
  • Identifying which job search strategy might work best for you, and breaking this down into clear action steps
  • Supporting you in quickly finding your next position if your role has recently been made redundant, defining your outcomes and non-negotiables, and boosting your confidence and interview readiness
  • Feedback on your strengths, how to brand yourself and increase your visibility, gravitas and network

It’s often difficult to see what we have achieved and can offer to employers, both current and prospective, at the earlier stages of our career or when working in graduate schemes. Coaching with IMechE will help you to harness your strengths, experiences to date and value you provide, and translate that into actionable steps that will further your career, boost your confidence and support you in achieving your goals.

As a graduate, the IMechE business coaching sessions really opened my eyes to the value of coaching for personal and professional development, and I will now actively seek coaching opportunities going forward. Since the coaching I have already noticed some real positive improvements in my effectiveness, both in and out of work, and I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to advance in their career.
