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 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.
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.
