Next Steps for
Retrenched Workers

Job Seekers

Help for job seekers

We can assist job seekers in job search, in developing strong links to employers and in resume writing and interview skills. There is a fee for this service. Typically our fees are paid by employers if they are making redundancies. We help people at all job levels including Senior Executives and CEO’s. Each service is tailored to the individual.

We also provide group workshops.

Help is available via individual and group coaching to help job seekers, and those whose position has been made redundant, to:

  • Develop a career pathway plan
  • Identify specific next steps (non-accredited training, accredited training, work experience and/or employment) to reach your employment goal
  • Develop self-presentation skills (finding the hidden jobs, confidently communicating their skills, resume writing, cover letters and applications, interview skills)
  • Use a computer or smartphone for career development planning, job search, writing a resume and applying for jobs online
  • Find employment opportunities you are suited for

The Client’s View

For more testimonials about our outplacement and job seekers services please click on “testimonials” at the top of the page.

"I found Bridget's course (Next Steps Job Seeker workshop) extremely useful.  It was interesting to see and hear the perspective of the interviewer and what they want to hear and see, and that gave me more confidence to be the interviewee.  I found the SOAR acronym particularly helpful as it gave me a structure to answer all questions from the interviewer, both easy and difficult, and this made it much easier.  The use of the words as a sentence starter was particularly helpful. 

I also found my resume writing improved beyond measure.  I also saw this from the employer's perspective and understood more fully exactly what they would like to see in a resume.

Bridget was an enthusiastic, patient and knowledgeable tutor."
