About This Event

Sign up to virtually connect with Columbia Business School Executive Career Coaches, a group of accredited professionals who work with experienced professionals to help you move forward with your career goals.

What You’ll Learn

The purpose of a coach is to motivate you, to expand your thinking and possibilities, and to help you achieve your professional goals. No matter where you are in the world. You can register today and connect with a Columbia Business School Executive Career Coach from your home, office, or even on the road! Speak with the coaches about: 

  • Career transition
  • Pitch Development/Refinement
  • Networking Strategy
  • Salary negotiation
  • Interviewing
  • Leadership development


Each coach has their own style, industry expertise, and specialty. Most importantly, each coach can offer a different perspective, so take advantage of this opportunity to develop and define your career strategy.

How It Works

Each conversation will be an 8-minute, text-based online chat with an executive career coach. Please have questions prepared ahead of time to maximize your time with each coach. Since there are a limited number of coaches (6), you may have to “wait in line” until a coach becomes to speak with the next available coach. This platform allows you to jump around to each coach so you can get all your questions answered.

Here are some suggestions for getting started:

  1. Provide a brief summary of your job situation (i.e. are you currently employed, what industry are you in, are you trying to transition into a different industry)
  2. What are you trying to get out of your 8 minutes? (i.e. help on your pitch, networking, feedback on your resume, tips on negotiating a salary increase)
  3. Ask Questions


Sample Questions:

  1. I am interested in making a career change in X industry, what is the best way to start this transition?
  2. If I am trying to negotiate a higher salary, what are some tips/suggestions I might use? What resources are available?
  3. I’ve been working at the same organization for 10 years and my interviewing skills are rusty. What can I do to ensure I ace the interview?
  4. I’m re-entering the workplace after being out for 5 years. Do you have any advice on how to market myself?
