I wasted 3 years at university trying to get a qualification in IT...After racking up a huge student loan in something I didn’t enjoy, I decided I just wanted to work.
Without a qualification and any career direction, I fell into doing factory work for 5 years.
The moment when I realised my strengths and passion -- it was Recruitment.
I was able to change the course of my career and have since been in recruitment for over 11 years; placing people in major corporates which include Telstra, Computershare, Exxon Mobil, Foxtel, Link Group, Department of Human Services, Australian Tax Office, NBN, REA Group and many more.
As an ex-Senior Recruitment Partner, my role has always been to find the top 5% of applicants to put forward for jobs -- which meant rejecting a lot of people…
After reading 500,000+ resumes and interviewing 10,000+ people; I saw so many people make the same mistakes again and again.
It wasn’t because they didn’t have the skills, qualifications or attitude; they just didn’t know how to sell themselves. I'm now dedicated his life to coach people about the recruitment blueprint and the hiring psyche so they can get into that top 5%.
Now as a Job-Success Coach and Director of Careerists, I focus on 3 key areas:
- Mindset: Framing your mind for success
- Personal Brand: Create an image that is valuable to employers
- Hiring Psyche: Understand exactly what employers and recruiters look for
A regular public speaker at career events and major universities across Australia; I provide insights to all levels of audiences.
I'm also a Career Mentor for Monash University and Australian National University in Canberra - coaching final year students for success in their career journey.
