My resume put me ahead of similar qualified tradesmen and ultimately landed me the job along with key contacts in the mining industry and handy points in what to do to get into a very hard to break into industry.

"Outplacement Australia care about the success of their clients."

"Adrian Kelly and his team has provided myself with the resources and confidence to successfully transition from the ADF to my new civilian career. Their professional writing team took the time to get to know me and were able to bring together all of my qualifications and experience in defence and transfer it into a professional resume tailored specifically to my desired career. I was also provided one on one counselling with an experienced career coach who understood my career goals and was able to tailor a plan to achieve it. During this process I was also provided with valuable knowledge on how to find employment including job seeking, interview and professional writing skills as well as networking opportunities. Outplacement Australia care about the success of their clients with Adrian having contacted me on several occasions to track my progress. I would not hesitate to recommend Outplacement Australia to any service member who is considering transitioning from the ADF."

"Outplacement Australia were of tremendous assistance to me in my transition from full-time service."

Outplacement Australia were of tremendous assistance to me in my transition from full-time service.  The resumes, sample cover letters and profiles that they developed based on our initial interviews and career assessments were extremely high quality and well-targeted.  They also arranged excellent additional support in the form of a career coach, one-on-one focused job targeting and Linked In profile optimisation advice sessions, and Jibber Jobber membership - all as part of their total support package.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone else undergoing a major career transition."

"The service I received from Outplacement Australia was outstanding."

The service I received from Outplacement Australia was outstanding. The dedication of those handling my case in developing a first class resume was second to none. From initial contact I was guided and supported to give OA the tools by which they could deliver a superlative final product. Step by step conversations covering every aspect of previous career achievements , coupled with regular reviews to hone the products ensured a Grade A result. When coupled together with a fully fledged Linkedin profile and and one on one coaching for 'up to the minute' interview technique support I could not have felt better prepared.  I was stunned that the final product not only reflected every aspect of my career but that it was perfectly honed  to achieve market success. As a result of Outplacement Australia's high class job I was selected for interview within 24 hours of the first company receiving my resume and was subsequently offered the position in a market leading company with a higher than average salary.
