What Will I Earn as a Career Coach?

On average, IACC-certified career coaches earn $137K USD a year.


What you’ll earn as an IACC-certified career coach depends on your region, the macroeconomic environment, and your own choices. In the United States, a certified career coach can expect to earn an average of $140K per year—some of our coaches make $400-500K.

As a point of comparison, US life coaches tend to make between $22K and $51K a year depending on the region. The average salary for school guidance counsellors is around $57K. In other words, if you’re attracted to coaching in general, career coaching is, in addition to being rewarding and exciting, relatively lucrative.
