About

Hi, I’m Sally

I empower professionals who are feeling stagnant and lost in their career to overcome indecisiveness, gain CLARITY and CONFIDENCE to find a career they love.

 

The business founded in April 2016, originally as résumé writing service and after two years of successfully jazzing up résumés that stood out in the piles of résumés, I realised I was not helping other to get their dream job, yet I was not doing what I loved!
Through my own journey of coaching and up-skilling, I pivoted my career and became a Career Coach. In 2019, our team grew allowing us to support more professionals to gain clarity and direction as well as build the confidence to create their dream career.

 

I absolutely love what I do and I want that for everyone. No more dreading Mondays. No more counting down to the next holiday. I mean, I love a good holiday, but what if you could enjoy the average days too. I am so rewarded when clients tell me they feel proud of their skills and the career they have created. That they have clarity, confidence and empowered to leap into their next career adventure. Read the testimonials here.

My story

I have over 10 years’ experience in recruitment, talent acquisition and career management services and have worked in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and in London. I entered the recruitment industry whilst on a working holiday in the UK, I interviewed at a recruitment agency for some temp work and the next thing I knew I was starting work the next day as a Candidate Resourcer. This is where I developed a solid grounding for focusing on the candidate; specifically meeting their needs and exceeding expectations. Early in my career, I learned that good candidates don’t always have good CV’s. The key to my success in recruitment was to look past their not-so-good CV’s. I found it more beneficial to pick up the phone, speak to candidates and if they were motivated, I’d meet them in person. I had a knack for gaining an understanding of what they did, so I fancied up their résumé to market to high-end clients. And it worked! They got jobs.

.

Moving back home to Australia, I worked as a Senior Recruitment Consultant for a global recruitment agency in Brisbane. After 4.5 awesome years’ (yep I loved it) I transitioned to an Internal Recruitment Adviser for a large ASX listed corporate company with over 9,000 employees. My experience has allowed me to gain first-hand knowledge and experience of the key attributes recruiters AND employers look for in a candidate and their application.

 

After having my second daughter, I decided to create my own business to coach professionals through the frustrating process of changing jobs or career paths.

 

I look at résumés all day long and have done so for the last 10 years’ (having viewing in excess of 15,000 résumés). I had grown accustomed to accepting that people are not always good at producing a resume. This needs to change. People are missing out on their dream job and companies could be missing out on an awesome new addition to their team.

“My mission is to equip
professionals with clarity
and confidence to achieve
fulfilment in their career.”
