Frequently Asked Questions
What is KTS Career Coaching and with whom do you work?
KTS Career Coaching is a boutique firm providing tailored career coaching, assessments, and job search assistance to individuals in all career stages.
What makes KTS Career Coaching unique?
I continue to connect with recruiters in various industries, which has given me unique insight into what recruiters seek in candidates. Additionally, I remain up-to-date with how the Covid-19 crisis is affecting career trends and the job market.
Why can't I just use an online resume template?
You can, however, templates will not help you tailor your résumé to pass the ATS (Applicant Tracking Systems) that most large companies use.
I am not comfortable interviewing, especially via video. How can you help me with this?
How confidential is my information?
All discussions between the coach and client are strictly confidential. It is KTS Career Coaching’s policy to respect your privacy and protect the confidentiality of our discussions. Your personal information will never be shared with anyone.
How does the initial free phone consultation work?
KTS Career Coaching's free phone consultation will allow you to describe your goals, challenges, and needs.
Do I need to live in Los Angeles to schedule appointments?
No, all appointments are virtual and take place over the phone or via Zoom.
Will a career assessment tell me what career I should choose?
Career assessments reflect your responses to items indicating your likes and dislikes. No 'test' can tell you what to pursue, however, they can serve as a starting point for us to discuss what is important to you and what you need to have in a career to make you happy.
I have lost my job due to the covid-19 crisis. How can I find a job now?
Of course, this is one of the most stressful times we have all experienced. Losing a job so suddenly is devastating, especially when it was unexpected. Once you take time to process and are ready to look for a new job, or make a career change, know there are still available jobs. In my interview with the Los Angeles Times, I highlight the next steps to take. Yes, there will be a lot of competition. However, the more you prepare during this time, the better your chances will be to land a new role. I have worked with people who have been laid-off before the pandemic and can help guide you through the job search process.
