Wherever you want to go, we can help you get there

Proven career coaching programmes to help you get the job you deserve.

What we do

What is Career Coaching?

Over the past 20 years we have successfully delivered a 'fired to hired' programme for corporate clients - and now it is available on a one one basis for individuals. You can choose individual one hour calls where you choose the topic, or opt for full one on one.


What we do

What does it include?

You decide the direction. Coaching can consist of a single coaching call where you decide the topic or full on coaching where we do everything for you. Full one on one includes:

Professionally written resumes & cover letters

Save time and stress. Professional resume and cover letter writing is included so you know you will get through Applicant Tracking software and have the best format.

Professional LinkedIn profile

97% of recruiters look at candidates' LinkedIn profiles when screening them for positions so we will make sure they are not disappointed when they find yours.

Perfect job applications

Job applications can be confusing and time consuming - but not for our clients because first we help them find jobs, and then we make sure they apply for them correctly.

Interviewing prep & coaching

After intensive preparation and coaching, you'll have nothing to worry about on the big day and will sail through your interviews. We'll even help you negotiate your offers.

is this you

Who is it for?

If you are feeling frustrated, demotivated, or confused, it's perfectly normal. Especially if you are also trying to hold down your current job at the same time.


We have literally taken thousands of people from 'fired to hired' - and all the steps in between - sometimes one on one and sometimes in groups. So, whatever you are currently struggling with, you can be sure we have seen it before and we can get you past it so you can get the job you deserve.

I chose Career Coaching to ensure I was comfortable about how to give answers to interview questions. It gave me the confidence to proceed to final interview stage. It's been an excellent experience and I got a new role.

 I get a phone call from most applications I make. I have already recommended you several times to other people I know within the construction and mining industries.  I can't fault your service.

 G'day everyone, I just wanted to give Mark Daniel a thumbs up and public thanks... A true professional, he coached me through the recruitment process offering advice on how to prepare for interviews. He took the time to call me to talk things over and made sure I understood what would probably be required (and he was correct ). All at a very competitive price in my opinion.
