Career Coaching

Sometimes you just need to talk to a real person 🙂

Online coaching sessions with the Ecotopian Careers founder, Dr Joseph Gelfer, are available for people who would benefit from one-on-one discussion. Joseph is a member of the Climate Coaching Alliance where he is convener of the Work and Careers group.

Coaching sessions are high-level conversations that do not necessarily include advice about specific careers, rather:

  • whether or not a transition to a green job is viable (basically, a sanity check)
  • what type of green job might be viable
  • motivation techniques
  • job seeking skills (including networking and interviews)
  • goal setting (and being held accountable for goals)


“Joseph is immediately approachable and is adept at combining active listening with honest appraisal, something I found very useful in my search for clarity as a mid-career conservationist seeking to switch to a climate career. Joseph is generous with his time and has helped me think outside the box and get out of my comfort zone. I highly recommended his services.”

Combine coaching with our online course

The most efficient and cost-effective way to receive Ecotopian Careers coaching is via our online course. However, many people benefit from combining the course with a few one-on-one sessions (and some just prefer a 100% in-person experience).

If that sounds like you, sessions are 60 minutes and cost $120 each.

You can book a pay-as-you-go session here.

All bookings are subject to the Ecotopian Careers Terms of Service.


“Joseph has been invaluable to my career switch into Climate, offering me accurate and actionable advice in every meeting. The experience is akin to a crash course, so it’s very time efficient for busy execs. Joseph was readily accessible and responded quickly to questions with solid suggestions every time. This has been the most valuable and quickest career coaching experience I’ve had and I highly recommend Joseph.”
