Nora Bright, Vice President at Bristol Associates: “I recently met Alyson Garrido through a mutual friend and was thrilled to have a strong career coach to whom we could refer candidates. We often find that job seekers are unclear on the difference between a career coach and executive recruiter — which is why it’s great to have someone we can send candidates to when they need guidance that goes beyond the scope of our work as executive recruiters. In this guest post, Alyson sheds some light on what a career coach does and how it’s different from the role of both recruiters and consultants.”

Friends, bosses, coworkers, therapists, mentors — the list of people who can help you in your job search can seem endless. When it’s time to enlist a professional, I see many misconceptions about what a coach, consultant and recruiter do. Each serves a unique and beneficial role in helping a candidate land their next role.
