First, I would define what you mean by Career Coach – are you looking for someone who has been in your role and can mentor you, or are you looking for a trained coach, or are you looking for a hybrid?
The majority of coaches – indeed, the most excellent ones out there – will have no experience at all in your career path, and will be “whole” coaches. They will be able to coach you as a whole person, and your career is just one aspect of you. If you want someone who happens to also have your career choice in common with you, then you’re narrowing the window a bit and you’ll need to search.
My team and I at ROCeteer use our experiences in business to jump back and forth between Mentorship and Coaching, and I know there are other coaches that do the same.
You will need to decide what is right for you, then go for that.
