What is career coaching?
Career coaching helps people at all levels and at all stages in their career. Career coaching teaches new skills and provides resources to make difficult and complex decisions in the workplace easier, with the ability to unlock the full potential of your career.
Whether you’re facing difficult situations, having difficulties working and communicating with managers or colleagues, or looking to be a more effective leader, professional career coaching gives you the skills you need to ensure you make the most of your time at work and in your future career.
Why hire a career coach?
People hire career coaches because success requires mentorship, guidance and hard work.
The need to control situations and events we encounter in our careers requires an embodiment of focus and vision.

What career coaching can do for you
What makes a good career coach?
A good career coach is a licensed professional who has experience in training and mentoring others, in guiding their decisions and driving their potential.
The difference between a good career coach and others can be seen in the energy and results seen in those who have made a positive change in their efforts and attitudes towards their future.

Is a career coach right for me?
Everyone needs help at some point in their career. And with the fall of in-house mentors in the modern workforce, upskilling, training and avenues to success are now more hard-won than ever.
Help is available across so many disciplines and career stages, from millennials who are new or looking for a leg up in an industry, to college students, lawyers and even executives.
That’s why so many of us employ career coaches: to give us the extra motivation and tools we need to go the extra mile and succeed to our full potential.
The meaning of a career coach and their work is to teach you how to thrive in the workplace by improving upon current skills, strengthening weaker skills and empowering your mind to get the best out of yourself and your surroundings.
Career coaches are ideal for:
- College students
How to know if a career coach is worth hiring beforehand
I always advise you talk to a potential career coach before you hire them and their services.
This is because if you want to find the best career coach in Melbourne or online, a simple conversation and quote will either inspire you or deter you.
Knowing beforehand if a career coach is worth hiring can be the make or break point in your life and career. Some of the characteristics of a good career coach include an understanding of your situation and having solutions to offer in response, as well as providing you with a safe and friendly environment to learn and grow in.
The price is also a considerable factor, so I recommend you ask how much their services will be before you go signing your name along the dotted line. Finding an effective career coach doesn’t have to be difficult though.

Our client testimonials
I have improved my life and work relationships.
I originally came to Eiran for career counselling, but found so much more – a better understanding of myself and where I’m at and a clearer sense of where I’m going. I’m now well on the way to a career change that I am passionate about. I have improved my life and work relationships and now approach problems and obstacles in a different way. I always leave having learned something new and helpful. Well worth the time and money as an investment in your future.
I have now landed a job in a Law Firm.
My coaching program with Eiran gave me the confidence & lead me to change my career from a Business Development Manager to following my passion for the Law. Eiran taught me great communication skills to change the way I work that then lead me to realise that my business development although I was really good at it wasn’t what I really wanted to be doing with my life. Eiran guided me down the path I needed to take to study law as a mature age student & I have now landed a job in a Law Firm to assist with my Career Development. I am very excited to be taking the steps that for so long I was afraid to take. Thanks Eiran

Katie, Nurse & Transformational Coach
Last year I signed up with Eiran Trethowan at Open for Life for the Career Coaching Program she provides.
I can honestly say I would not have proceeded so well into my business (if at all ) without her fantastic ability to pick up on what is holding me back and then with her remarkable intuition and skills be able to turn things around in both my life and my business.
I have also attended a number of workshops Eiran has conducted which have been informative, helpful and a lot of fun.
I would highly recommend Eiran at Open for Life if you are looking for a Business Mentor, Counsellor or just want to turn your life around. She is a remarkable lady who is extremely passionate and professional in her business which shows in the results that she gets.
Thanks Eiran for all your hard work and I look forward to working with you in the future.
I now have a clear vision.
Eiran helped bring clarity to my business. I now have a clear vision!
At Open for life we like to give back to our planet.
