Dora Grote, Dr. Jerry Trusty, and Minjung Chae have completed a study that investigates the effectiveness of individualized and personalized career coaching sessions with a sample group of Jobs for America's Graduates (JAG) secondary students in six high schools across Indiana.

Notable findings  include:

  • Participants reported  enhanced levels of self-confidence resulting from the career coaching experience, including self-awareness, career planning, communicating, and specific skills for seeking and securing jobs.
  • Career coaching was perceived as effective in helping students/adults become more self-aware, more knowledgeable of job markets, and more effective in their job-seeking skills.
  • Participants related that their career coaches were encouraging and supportive.
