Just saw the job of my dreams - I need to stand out from the crowd

I've just been made redundant - what do I do now?

It's been a while, I need to update my Resume

Jeez, the job wants Selection Criteria too - I don't even know where to start!

I don't have time to do up my Resume

I freeze every time I go for an interview - I need help

I'm applying for job after job after job, but I can't get an interview

I don't know how it happened, but my confidence is shot

I've had such a hard time over the years, I don't know who I am anymore

I used to be so good at interviews, but my confidence has gone

After being made redundant, I can't seem to get a new job

I can do that job with my eyes shut, but I didn't even get an interview!

I hate my job - I need to get out of here, but what am I going to do?

I reached the top of the tree, but I'm not happy, so what's next?

My Resume has worked in the past - how come it's not working now?

I've never needed a Resume, but I can't seem to get an interview

I just knocked something together for my Resume, but it's not working

I had my friends' aunt's cousin's next door neighbour write my Resume

Oh I'll just get Jane down the road to knock something up for me - that'll do

I want to start my own business, but I don't know how!





Just letting you know that not only did I get the interview with my amazing Resume, but with your interview coaching, I felt confident presenting my information and, I got the job!


I can't believe how fantastic I look on paper - I'd even employ me!


Four of the questions you prepared for me during our interview coaching session were in the interview - I was able to be so confident in answering them!


My Resume is amazing - thank you so much, I love it!


Thank you for making me sound so professional - I could never have done that"


Wow, I can't believe how amazing I feel - my confidence has improved so much!


"I felt very stuck in my work role and could not see a way to change my position for the better. I spoke to Anne about a position she was seeking candidates for and she was instantly supportive.  Within days she had organised an interview, held the interview, and I had been accepted for the role. She was prompt, informative and practical. This has been a huge positive change for myself and my whole family. Dealing with Anne was a stark contrast to any dealings I have had with recruitment agents and job seeking in general. The whole process felt easy and exciting. I strongly recommend Anne to anyone seeking genuine, honest and fun! service."


This business operates 9-4 Monday to Thursday, 9-12 Fridays - Sydney time
