Do you need a career coach?

With the unemployment rate at 9.5 percent and the nation's payrolls shedding 467,000 jobs, according to today's report by the U.S. Labor Department, it's no wonder that panicked job seekers may decide to turn to a career coach. Whether that's a good idea depends on the coach, your wallet and whether you can conduct your job search on your own. I've been writing about Ford Myers, the local career coach who wrote a book titled "Get the Job You Want Even When No One's Hiring." Recently I received an email from Mitch Ehrlich, who hired Myers, but was not satisfied with his work. I'll print the email, provide Myers' response and add my own observation.
