Testimonials

"My time with Drew Clark, after being retrenched from a company I’d been with for 21 years, was enormously helpful. In our discussions he was conscious of taking into account my uncertainty about what I wanted for the future, and what would work best for me. Drew was able to determine where I would be most successful and give me confidence and tools to search out what I’d be good at. I can certainly recommend the services he provided and Drew personally. I think when you leave what can be a stressful outplacement consultation with a smile on your face, that says it all."

D Middleton, Sydney

Drew, I just wanted to say thank you for all the help you’ve given me over our two meetings. Your advice on "life after redundancy" and how to go about finding a new job for myself has been invaluable. The interview skills we went over yesterday have given me more confidence. Thank you also for the professional resume. So many thanks for all you’ve done and I’ll let you know when I find a job.

D Harris, Sydney

Hi,

I just wanted to let you know that I found the session today with Drew Clark really valuable. He was very helpful and easy to talk to and gave some great advice. I really recommend everyone involved in this process having a chat with him, even if they don't think they need to. Thanks so much for organising this. Drew was a great choice!

Narelle, Sydney

"I chose to take the opportunity of participating in the Outplacement Program offered as part of my redundancy package just to get a quick review of my resume, as I was very sceptical of the usefulness of this service. After just 2 sessions with Drew Clark I am eating humble pie and am compelled to write this testimony as my eyes have been opened to a world of possibilities in my hunt for a new job! Drew was pragmatic, empathetic and his vast experience helped streamline my job hunt strategy significantly. I found the interview skills training surprisingly helpful and have a new level of motivation and confidence in my search for a job matched to my skills, experience and interests."

TH, Sydney

"I worked with Company X for over 14 years till recently when the role was made redundant. I had the pleasure of meeting Anna Fleming to help me with my resume, Job Interviews Process and other related preparations. The first time I met Anna, I felt really good and more at ease and calm because the interview went in such a positive, friendly and professional manner. The following meetings, telephone calls and all related correspondence were nothing short of exceptional. I believe Anna is a great asset to your organisation and I commend her for her expertise. I thank her from the bottom of my heart for her professionalism. Thank you for an excellent experience and I wish your organisation and your staff all the best of success and prosperity. I would not hesitate to recommend you in the future."

Yvonne, Sydney

Hi Julie and Debbie,

I just wanted to send my extremely positive feedback on last week’s career transition workshop. Thank you both SO MUCH for putting together such an easy, well structured, and informative workshop. The team responded extremely well to the content and were so engaged – more engaged than I’ve ever seen them. And Julie, thank you for reading their attitude and outlook and for engaging them so well – you really connected with the team and they learned some invaluable skills for life. So from all of us – thank you again for tailoring this package to us and the team! Very much appreciated.

Corey, Sydney

To Whom it May Concern

This is just a short email to express my gratitude for Anna’s assistance in the transitional process of my redundancy to a new position with a different company. Anna has been a real pleasure to deal with during this time, she has been prompt and clear in discussing my options, often giving me another way to think about the situation and the courage to consider different routes and alternative careers, which I had never thought of before.

Anna is incredibly knowledgeable and very friendly and her work on my CV and Cover Letter was excellent. Her way of communicating the ways in which I can stand out from the crowd and how to answer the most common interview questions, without sounding like I was trying to be someone else was so insightful and I really felt that she understood not only my situation but who I am, and tailored the sessions to suit me. I would absolutely recommend your organisation and Anna of course again.

Amy, Sydney

How to bounce back from redundancy

If you’re going through a redundancy or have in the past, you’ll understand the enormity of change it can cast on your life. In today’s business climate, redundancies are common and usually out of our control. As technology evolves and workplaces change, restructures occur and redundancies become inevitable. Then there are national and global events that no one can prepare for. Being made redundant is generally a stressful time, with the loss of income and uncertainty about your next steps. But it can also give you a chance to pause and reassess your career path. It can be the catalyst for positive career change and ultimately take you down an exciting new road. Read more

10 steps to a LinkedIn profile that boosts your job search

Having an up-to-date, professional LinkedIn profile that captures your value and gets people’s attention is a vital tool in your job search kit. Even if you’re not currently looking for a job, there are many benefits to keeping it updated. But it can be easy to ignore your LinkedIn profile, or to know where to start when it comes to updating and optimising it. Writing your LinkedIn profile is quite different from writing your resume. The content in your profile should be more general, as it needs to cater for a broader audience. It also needs to project your personality, while your resume is more a record of your past work and is usually tailored to specific roles. Here we share our 10 steps to creating an attention-grabbing LinkedIn profile – including tips and tricks that many people don’t know about or simply don’t use. Read more

The future of work: the tools you use are changing

You’ve probably heard it before: the future of work is changing. And dramatic shifts are underway. Cognizant’s Center for the Future of Work recently released a report that delves into the most important trends set to change (or already changing) what you do and how you do it, whatever your job. This month, we look at some of the ‘tools of work’ and how they’re changing – and what that could mean for you. Tool 1: From thumb to voice: We’ve been tapping keys, clicking our mouse and scrolling for decades. With the rise of smartphones, this changed to thumbs typing and swiping. As devices got smarter, touchscreen interfaces were in cars, restaurants and banks. Thanks to our phone addictions, sore thumbs and ‘text neck’ are now a fact of life. Our vision is declining and our posture more hunched. The hand–eye coordination required to use touchscreens prevents us from doing other things while using them – all driving the need for a new approach. We already have voice-activated devices that listen to us and do things without us touching or even looking at them (Suri, Alexa, Echo, and Google Home) and voice processing technology is getting better every day. Fully shifting to a screen-less, touchless future might return our attention to things that matter most and help us do things like driving more safely. But what does a world of always-on microphones sound like – and how will we maintain privacy? Read more
