I provide clients with personalized coaching sessions on a wide variety of topics related to their career development. This includes the following:
Job search strategies
Resume and cover letter writing
Job interview practice
Social media marketing, and much more
Fees and Payment:
Career coaching is a investment that pays for itself by yielding huge dividends. By investing now, you are potentially adding thousands of dollars of value to your career and financial future, which is well worth the short-term cost.
My full fee for a 1-hour session is $100 CAN and I normally accept cash, cheques, e-transfers, and credit cards (payable online) as valid forms of payment. My rates for package deals can vary depending on the specific outcomes you want, so please contact me directly to receive a quote.
For compassionate reasons, I offer rate reductions based on a sliding scale to clients in significant financial need.
Prior to Thomas, I had seen counselors who would push their own ideas on me for what direction my life should take, but Thomas was different. He understood my needs and made helpful suggestions for reaching the goals I had made for the appointment. I would highly recommend him as a career counselor.
I highly recommend Thomas Rauchenstein’s services to anyone seeking a career change or new employment. I was searching for someone with superior soft and hard career skills, real listening abilities and knowledge of action planning, and I have to say, I was extremely fortunate to find Thomas. He does an excellent job of helping you to map out your career journey, assess your values and needs, showcase the skills you already have, and provide you with tangible, actionable tools for jump-starting your short-term and long-term career path. I wish Thomas all continued success and commend him for being so genuinely passionate about his work.
I reached out to Thomas during some major decisions with regards to my career. When I contacted him he was very approachable and willing to listen. We set up an appointment to meet to talk further in person about managing my career. When we met Thomas was very professional and relaxed. This made me feel comfortable to talk. Thomas reviewed my options and provided some very practical suggestions and techniques for my interview as well as coming up with questions to ask for my benefit during the interview. I used these techniques and suggestions and was successful at obtaining a position at my new place of work. Thanks Thomas for your expertise and suggestions. Highly recommended!
Meeting with Thomas was exactly what I needed to send me in the right direction. He took the time to listen to exactly where I was at to ensure that the time we spent together was valuable (which ended in me landing an amazing job). He went above and beyond all my hopes and expectations and I seriously can't recommend him enough!
Several years back I was feeling lost--I couldn't imagine creating a long-term, sustainable life for myself. In that place, I connected with Thomas. He walked me through several exercises to help me figure out what I have to offer the world, in ways that didn't feel gimmicky or cheesy. Thomas showed up from an authentic human-to-human place, offering me hope, comrade-ship, and concrete ideas about where I might go next. After talking to Thomas, I emerged with a much deeper trust that my life might actually be about more than I had thought, and I've carried that trust with me these years. Those conversations played no small part in my eventual decision to become a therapist, a path I'm now on.
Thomas has a great understanding and in depth experience of each stage of the career searching process. He not only gives you the tools to explore the job market, but also to learn things about yourself that you may not have known before. Above all he gives you the self confidence you need to make informed decisions and take action towards goals that you want. I highly recommend his service to anyone exploring any type of career option.
I highly recommend Thomas' services. You have the opportunity to customize what you want to achieve. It truly is an investment in yourself. My work with Thomas really brought attention to what I have accomplished, what my value is, and most of all how to present it to prospective employers in resumes and interviews. And the good news is, I ended up landing a new job! In all, Thomas is knowledgeable, has a direct vision, and he articulates that vision wonderfully so you can apply it and believe in it yourself!
