  • What is Career Coaching?

    Career coaching is a personalized service that helps you achieve your professional dreams! With guidance, structure, accountability, support, and strategies, we'll navigate your career path together toward a more fulfilling and lucrative future.

  • Can a Career Coach Help If I Feel Lost in My Career?

  • How Can a Career Coach Help If I'm Stuck in a Job I Hate?

    We can turn things around with the Career Clarity Method if you're stuck in a job you hate. Together, we'll boost your confidence to ask for raises, promotions, or bonuses. You'll improve your communication and leadership skills, have those tough conversations, and build a better work environment. These “quick wins” will make you feel purposeful while we figure out your next career move. Once we identify your new direction, we'll focus on job search strategies, securing interviews, and nailing salary negotiations so you get paid what you're worth.

  • Can a Career Coach Help Update My Resume?

    Absolutely! We will dive deep into your career accomplishments (yes, you have many!) and quantify them to showcase your skills and strengths. Then, based on your new career direction, we'll optimize your resume to get through the ATS system and catch the eye of recruiters and hiring managers.

  • Does Career Coaching Include Interview Preparation?

    Yes! When you join our 16-week Purpose Driven Career Coaching program or the Job Search Strategy package, we'll cover key interview questions and help you clarify your career accomplishments. After our time together, you'll be prepared and confident for your dream job interview, ready to share your career success stories and impress the hiring manager.

  • How Much Does Career Coaching Cost?

    Coaching packages range from $2,400 to $6,000, with monthly payment plans available. We'll work together to find the best solution for your financial and career goals.

  • Is Career Coaching Worth the Investment?

    Think career coaching might be a luxury? Think again! Investing in your career can yield significant financial returns. For example, one of my clients, Hannah, saw a 333.3% ROI on her coaching investment. Industry research backs this up, showing strong returns on coaching investments. Beyond the numbers, coaching can reduce procrastination, facilitate goal attainment, and increase compensation and career satisfaction.


    Typical ROI for most clients who go through the program will increase salary of 15% on average. Check out successful graduates on the Praise page, YouTube or Google reviews.

  • Can I Meet with My Career Coach Virtually?

    Yes, all of our coaching sessions are conducted virtually using Zoom, making it easy and convenient for you to join from anywhere.

  • How Long Does Career Coaching Typically Last?

    When clients come to me, they are usually unclear about what they want to do next. It’s important to take a deep dive inward before doing anything tactical like updating your resume and LinkedIn or job search strategies. This process typically lasts between 3 to 6 months. The Career Clarity Method process can take up to 90 days, and the job search can take another 3 to 6 months. The typical weekly time investment is about 2-3 hours, including coaching sessions and homework, research, networking, job search, and interviewing.

  • Can a Career Coach Help Me Get Promoted?

    Yes! If you aim to advance, we will identify your short- and long-term goals, generate a plan, and build the confidence needed to ask for a raise or promotion or even switch companies to advance in title and salary.

  • What Qualifications and Experience Should I Look for in a Career Coach?

    I completed a nine-month life coaching certification from Coaching For Transformation/Leadership That Works in 2015 and a Firework Career Coaching certification in 2017. I have extensive professional experience in corporate environments and creative fields such as TV/movie production, advertising, the music industry, ad tech, and wellness. I've also led creative and career-oriented workshops worldwide, coaching corporate professionals full-time since 2016.

  • Career Coaching vs Therapy: What's the Difference?

    Coaching takes you where you are today and looks ahead into the future. Career coaching is goal-oriented, diving into Inner Critics and limiting beliefs to transform them and move forward. In contrast, therapy looks back at your past to heal past issues. Combining both can be a powerful mix of past and future focus.

  • What Makes Kori Burkholder Different from Other Career Coaches?

    I'm a certified career and life coach with a unique blend of corporate and creative industry experience. I've also had success as a side hustler, artist, workshop creator, networker, and competitive tennis player. My approach is friendly, deep, creative, and results-driven, and I tailor my coaching to your individual career goals.


    I love to incorporate meditative and creative experiences because I believe that turning off the "how" gives us a moment to "be." In those quiet moments, inspiration and clarity often emerge. Career coaching doesn't have to be dry and boring—my intention is to bring fun into the mix while focusing on your goals and achieving the results you desire.
