Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to get started?

After you book a session, your coach will confirm the booking and be connected to you via email by the next business day (keep an eye on your junk/spam folder for correspondence). Most coaches reply within just a few hours. If you haven’t heard from your coach by then, just contact customerservice@localjobs.com or call us direct at 888-681-8975.

Why are some coaches more expensive than others?

LocalJobs coaches are broken down into three price levels: Ambassador, Coach, and Head Coach. All of our coaches have been vetted and are backed by LocalJobs, but they each offer something different.

Ambassadors have fewer years of experience, but specialize in various areas and offer services at an affordable price point for those on a budget.

Coaches are great for mid-career professionals who are looking for an experienced coach to help them take the next step.

Head Coaches have the most experience, typically working with senior leaders and executives. They’ve helped many many clients over the years of their profession.

In addition to the experience of the coach, some services offer you more time or interactions with your coach as the level increases. These differences are listed on individual service pages.

This is my first time using a coach. What should I expect?

When you work with one of our coaches you will receive personalized attention from a career strategist who will use pre-screened, well thought out questions to best understand your career objectives.  The goal is to help your REACH your objectives. You should expect a mix guiding questions, thought partnership, and action steps to help you with what comes next.

As in anything in life, the more you invest into your coaching sessions, the more you’ll get out. Those who get the best results are receptive to feedback and open to doing the work after the session is over.

Which service would be best for me?

This really depends on where you in your career.  If you are a high school student – you likely need a simply crafted resume.

A recent college graduate with a good sense of what career path to take likely needs a well crafted resume, cover letter and a new LinkedIn profile.  A Networking strategy session would also be help.

One who is late twenties or early thirties approaching potential management opportunities may do well with a New Manager coaching session.  On the otherhand – if you’re finding that what you thought was the right career path isn’t – then you really need a new career stategy session to determine what would be a likely good path to take.

Experienced or more seasonsed employees may be seeking help in negotiating their next salary offer


This depends on your needs. We get that your situation is unique, and it can be confusing trying to figure out what’s going to help you the most. You can learn about all of our services on their individual pages. We also have a great article that will help you decide which coach and service is right for you. If you still need help figuring it out, don’t worry! You can talk directly to one of our career advisors who can work with you to find the right coach for your exact situation—just email care.coaching@themuse.com or use the chat tool at the bottom of the page.

We’ll help you find the perfect match.

What if I am unsatisfied?

We’re happy to report that these problems rarely arise. Nonetheless, our customer care team is standing by, and is committed to resolving any issues that come our way. Just contact customerservice@localjobs.com if you have any problems – or you can call us direct at 888-681-8975 to speak with a support representative.

Can I get a refund?

The following issues would be grounds for a full refund:

  1. Final drafts of written materials containing spelling errors, inconsistent tense or inconsistent formatting. NOTE: Working drafts that contain errors do not constitute a refund.
  2. Any missed deliverables listed on the service pages (pre-coaching assessment, follow-up email, calls, etc.).
  3. If a cancellation request is received before the first call, you will be issued a full refund.
What if I bought a package and don't want to finish it?

If a cancellation request is made when a package is partially completed, we will issue a refund for only the sessions which have not started (pre-coaching assessment is starting point). Individual sessions will not be refunded following the first call. Packages include the Extrement Job Search Package.

What if I am not satisfied with my coaching session?

Once a session is completed, we cannot issue a refund unless there are grounds for one (see above). However, we strongly recommend you express any questions, concerns or comments to your coach. In nearly all cases, your coach will be able to help you find a resolution, as long as you communicate with them.

What if I am unsatisfied with my resume or cover letter?

Once the final version of the resume or cover letter is delivered, we can not issue a refund. Should this issue arise, please communicate with your coach to work toward a resolution. This resolves nearly every case.

If you are not satisfied with your initial call, contact customerservice@localjobs.com right away and we will issue you an 80% refund.

If you are not satisfied with your first draft, contact customerservice@localjobs.com within 4 hours of receipt from your coach and we will issue you a 50% refund.
