Welcome to Job Counselling Australia

“Did you know that you only have about twenty seconds to impress an employer, before your resume is headed for the garbage?”

On the Job Counselling Australia website I will help you avoid this fate, by providing articles and downloads based on over thirty years experience in writing successful resumes and job applications.

There are also hints and tips on interview preparation and a section dedicated to building your self esteem and looking after your health, fitness and wellbeing.

Plus, you’ll be offered the opportunity to complete questionnaires which may help you better understand and appreciate your abilities and decide which job is the best for you.

You can also register for the free newsletter ‘Your Place in the World’, containing additional job strategies, advice and special offers.

And remember……….

What you believe yourself to be, you are.

I suggest…….

Be great, always!
