Published Dec. 3, 2019

The difference between mentorship and coaching is a fine line, and we see ourselves with one foot in each of those topics. HireClub is a new startup giving everyone access to a coaching. So what do we do differently?

HireClub Alternatives: Affordable Career Coaching

About HireClub

HireClub is a coaching platform for professionals. For a fee you can get access to their pool of career coaches, whereas it is usually to be first matched with a coach, reserving the ability to change to other coaches at any time.

Coaching is usually done within 30 - 120 minute calls with coaches. While daily messaging is offered, it’s thought to be “best used for short conversations such as check-ins, quick updates, and setting up agenda for your next call.”

For cases that may warrant more time, they also offer single sessions, such as a Resume Review for $49, or a mock interview for $119.

About MentorCruise

MentorCruise is an independent education platform with the goal to connect you with the mentor you deserve for effective career development and skill building. The platform allows you to choose a mentor from the marketplace for longterm, career- or skill-driven mentorship and is allowing you to book specialized Sessions, such as a Introductory Call or a Sample Interview with a mentor.

Mentors communicate via chat and/or video calls and support mentees in organizing learning resources, advisory calls, career building and more. There is no limit to the interactions a user can have with their mentor – the program is therefore perfect for anyone looking for the most personal way of doing coaching. Whether you want to chat, have a call or work through e-mail is entirely up to you.

All mentors go through an application process, are educated and continuously audited, promising the highest quality of mentors at all times.
