CAREER CHANGE | Returning to the Workforce

Are you stuck in a job that isn’t you? Burnt out? Dream of working in a new industry? Making a career change is challenging and a template resume won’t work. When most people change careers several times over in their lifetime it’s important to show transferrable skills the right way.


STUDENT RESUMES | First Job Seekers

Never had a job? Don’t think you have experience? Most job seekers struggle to come up with experience when they haven’t had a job. So what do you put on your resume when you’re still in school or just graduated? Lots, believe it or not! This is the perfect workshop if you are a student, graduate, teacher, educator or parent to really help get that first job.


RESOURCES INDUSTRY | Mining, Oil & Gas - Construction & Maintenance

Applied for hundreds of jobs with no luck? Working on site but the project is ending? Want to make the big FIFO/DIDO bucks? It’s tricky to break into this growing industry or gain that dream job unless you join a certified resume specialist in Mining & Energy/Trades & Construction who has gained clients that elusive offshore job or beaten 1000s of other trade applicants.
