Career Coaching in Australia

Finding professional employment in Australia is difficult. It doesn’t matter if you’re a fresh graduate or experienced professional (with or without Australian/local experience).  

Career Coaching in Australia is not to dissimilar to any other service that people need.

Whether your car has broken down and you need a mechanic or you’re unwell and need to see a doctor or lawyer for legal services – Career Coaching in Australia is an effective way to get help when you’ve been struggling to get a job. 

Career Coaching is a specialist service. One that’s designed to help you with one of the most important choices in life: employment.

Who needs a Career Coach?

If you’re a graduate or skilled professional, who’s struggling to find a job in Australia, it may be time to see a Career Coach. If you’re from overseas (international graduate or skilled migrant) it’s even more critical. 

Before we ask ‘Who needs a career coach?’ we must differentiate between a Career Coach and the other professionals out there.

The ACECIS Career Coaching team in Australia operate very differently to careers counsellors, resume writers and careers consultants. 

We have a single goal in mind – to help you get job interviews and job offers.

We’re not going to waste time mapping our career goals and career road maps.

At this stage, you should know exactly what you want. Our job is to help you get it – whether it’s a graduate position or a senior management position.

The bottom line is this: If you have been trying to get a job for months, without success, you’re doing something wrong. Your strategy isn’t working and you need expert advice from a Career Coach in Australia.

The longer you leave it, the employment gap in your resume widens. What’s more, you’re losing income!

If you’re not getting interviews you need a Career Coach in Australia to diagnose the issues and fix the mistakes you’re making.

A Career Coach in Australia can helpyou get a job

Many people can’t get professional employment in Australia because they:

  • Have a poor-quality cover letter and resume
  • Can’t pass phone screening tests and face to face interviews 
  • Don’t have a networking and LinkedIn strategy
  • Don’t have local work experience (skilled overseas professionals)
  • Don’t have any professional experience (fresh graduates)

Career Coaching diagnosis:
The ACECIS Career Coaching team start by diagnosing WHY you’re not getting any interviews.

The common issues include poor resume and cover letter, lack of keywords in job applications and no customisation, no follow up strategy with recruiters/hiring managers or no local experience (overseas graduates and professionals in Australia).

Here’s a quick outline of what our Career Coaching team in Australia do to help:

Step 1: Career coaching diagnosis - We provide a 30 minute consultation and resume review to diagnose WHY you aren’t getting job interviews and a job offer.

Step 2: Career coaching analysis - During the consultation we analyse the strategies you’ve been using to determine what you are missing and what you’re doing wrong.

Step 3: Career coaching action plan - Once we have identified the key issues holding you back from getting job interviews and job offers, we develop a career coaching action plan to overcome each and every roadblock holding you back.

Step 4: Career coaching implementation - Whether it’s a brand- new resume and cover letter, interview training, an internship or intensive one-to-one support over 10 weeks to help you with your job applications and networking (Premium Career Coaching), we provide the support to achieve the end result – a job offer for you.

How long does it take to get a job with Career Coaching?

On average it takes our clients around 12 weeks of Career Coaching team to get an offer.

Sometimes it’s sooner, sometimes it’s longer. It depends on your background.

For example, the quickest time one of our clients took to get a job interview and offer through our Premium Career Coaching program was when we customised the resume and cover letter of an Oracle Developer, Guru from India several weeks before he arrived in Australia. 

When he landed, he was ready to apply for jobs.

Through his optimised LinkedIn profile, he was found by a recruiter. He then applied and got an interview after three weeks of Career Coaching. He had an interview in week four and received his offer in week five. 

Once we have reviewed your profile and diagnosed the issues, we provide you with an estimate on how hard it will be and how long it will take to generate job interviews and job offers through the Career Coaching Program.
