A handy directory of top career coaches who let you try before you buy.

Why do top athletes have coaches?
Simple: to get better results, faster.
Similarly, in 6 Reasons You Might Need a Job Search Coach Now, job seeker coach Rita Ashley said that having a coach helps in “securing a better job, reaching it faster and gaining the intangible benefit of control over” your job search.
Who doesn’t want that?
But then, how do you find a good career coach who can get you that?
You could try Googling ‘career coaches near me’, but where you live will largely decide how useful that is. Plus the fact that a career search coach is local in no way guarantees they are any good.
You could try asking your network of contacts for recommendations, and if you’re lucky, someone you trust will actually be able to speak from experience. But what if they’re in a different industry, or at a different stage in their career?
It’s not so easy to find the best career coach for you, which is why I’ve compiled this list of career coaches from around the world who offer a free consult upfront.
Most of the coaches here offer initial phone or Skype consult calls you can use to explain your situation and discuss their coaching services and pricing, while some give free resume and CV reviews.
Use the free call to see if there’s good chemistry with the coach to be, and try to understand if you’d enjoy working with them.
