2022 Winners: Add your badge to your marketing materials.
Atlanta is a booming town with plenty of job opportunities.
With so much competition, it can be difficult to land your dream job on your own.
Hiring a professional to help with this process can significantly improve your marketability.
That’s where Atlanta career coaches come in.
A career coach is a lot more than a friend to hold your hand throughout a job search.
Career coaches typically come from years of recruiting or HR experience. This experience can make them extremely valuable resources for navigating a job search.
Rather than searching through hundreds of career coaching services, we’ve done the work for you. Below, we’ve compiled a shortlist of the very best career coaches in Atlanta.

Find My Profession
Find My Profession offers a one-of-a-kind experience that goes far beyond any other career coaching service on this list.
While traditional career coaches will teach you how to find a job, Find My Profession’s Reverse Recruiting service will do the work for you.
This white-glove service will search for jobs on your behalf, apply for you with a customized resume to fit the application, and network with key decision-makers to secure interviews.
The only thing they won’t do is show up to the interview for you. But don’t worry, this service includes interview preparation to make sure you’ll crush any interviews they land you.
You can save hundreds of hours searching for jobs, filling out applications, customizing your resume, and networking. Finally, you can pay someone to find you a job. Your dedicated Reverse Recruiter will create a personalized strategy to manage all aspects of your job search. Each Reverse Recruiter only works with four clients at a time, providing you with personalized attention and care.
If you’re looking for a traditional career coach to help you change career paths, this service may not be a good fit. The Reverse Recruiting service is for professionals who know what kind of job they want but don’t have the time or energy to find it on their own. There is also usually a waitlist of about one month.

Create Your Career Path
Create Your Career Path was founded in 2002 by Hallie Crawford – a Certified Career Coach. Their career coaching staff is made up of Hallie Crawford and Emma Luttrell who both have excellent bios written on the website. Coaching packages range from career direction, professional resume development, work performance, and job search strategy.
Create Your Career Path is a boutique coaching agency which means you will be able to research your career coach’s experience prior to signing up. This can be advantageous if you are concerned about your coach’s credentials. Multi-month discounts are available.
On the flip side, with only a couple of options for career coaches, someone who is looking for a niche set of skills may not find what they are looking for here. Depending on what you are looking for, their small staff can either be a good thing or a bad thing.

Did you know there are companies you can hire to help with your job search? Whether you need resume help or want someone to apply to jobs for you, we’ve reviewed the 20 best agencies to help you find a job.
Turknett Leadership Group
Turknett Leadership Group is certainly one of the most accomplished and experienced executive career counseling groups on this list. The firm was founded by Robert Turknett and is now run by Tino Mantella. Their team is now stacked with experienced businessmen and women as well as PhDs who can help you with whatever executive issue you are experiencing.
Turknett Leadership Group has worked with over 2,000 executives. They have seen it all when it comes to executives. You can easily get in touch with the group, as many of the top executives have their emails listed right on the website. Talk about easy access!
Turknett Leadership Group only has two reviews on Google. That could be a concern as many other professional career coaching services have numerous reviews from third-party sites. However, the firm might not prioritize online reviews or may take on such a select clientele that it’s not possible to have hundreds of reviews.
