"Michelle was fantastic right from the get go. She took the time to really get to know me and was able to translate this into a resume for me that truly brings my key strengths to light. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with and her writing skills have certainly increased my marketability in the job arena which I will be forever grateful for."
"I got a team of experts helping me to get the dream job"
"Outplacement Australia was so helpful in so many ways. Not only did I get guidance with where I should turn my career ambitions, in the right direction personally suited to me, but I got the best team of experts helping me to get the dream job.
They never faltered with their support. Always available when you really needed them. And more than happy to give you the space you need. I would highly recommend them to any individuals who are going through the tough times associated with redundancy."
"The resources were helpful and the flexibility in both face to face and remote sessions"
Thank you for the support. The staff were professional, friendly, courteous and prompt. The resources provided were very helpful, and I really appreciated the flexibility in completing the sessions face to face locally and over the phone.
"You were responsible for shifting my husbands dreary outlook on the job market. Thanks to your help he found a fantastic new job that he loves"
Your firm was responsible for shifting my husband's dread and dreary outlook on the job market and his future after his retrenchment. Thanks to your help, he found a fantastic new job which he loves (and is now full time). I wanted to say a big thank you. I couldn't shift my husband's way of thinking about a new career at 50 but you could. Not only does he have a new career, they provide training, he is outdoors (which he loves) and he now has a host of like-minded colleagues whose company he really enjoys. I am eternally gratefull.
"You assisted me in coming to terms with having to look for a job after 20 years with the same company"
Thanks to the Outplacement Australia team who assisted me in coming to terms with having to look for a job after 20 years with the same company. Allan and Michelle did a really professional job in getting a great CV, covering letter and LinkedIn profile together as well as coaching me through the various phases of job search, handling the interview and generally looking for opportunities. I certainly will recommend Outplacement Australia to any job seekers looking for professional help in their career development.
"You offered a perspective at a time when emotionality is high"
It was good to have I put from someone who was not involved in the drama of redundancies at work and could offer a perspective at a time when emotionality is high, very appreciative of that thanks.
"Danielle enabled me to take important steps towards creating a new path for myself with a sense of confidence"
Despite our employer offering a link to Outplacement Australia following my recent redundancy, I was reluctant to take up the offer. Before long, three of my colleagues had connected in and been referred to Danielle and each of them returned expressing relief, surprise and optimism about future possibilities. Danielle had finely tuned her support to meet their individual needs. So I decided to make contact myself. Danielle has supported me to prepare for a new stage in my career pathway – moving into small business. She helped me consider my business overview, create documents for networking and also linked me with other services that can support me in this journey. Danielle is professional, respectful and authentic, qualities which enabled me to take important steps towards creating a new path for myself with a sense of confidence. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who finds themselves standing at an unexpected career crossroad.
"I really can't thank you enough, and am so happy I contacted your company"
I learnt so much in a very short space of time. Many of the lessons Michelle taught me I know will carry me in good stead in the future. Michelle was always very positive and encouraging, every step of the way. The documents and advice she provided me with were always of a very high & professional standard. I really can't thank you enough, and am so happy I contacted your company. I would not hesitate to recommend your team to others.
"My interview coaching session was a great experience...he helped me develop crisp answers that the interviewer was looking for"
"Outplacement Australia provided me with an outside perspective on Situational / Behavioural Interviewing that I needed in order to best position my strengths and make the necessary adjustments and improvements to align myself to the new role that I was seeking. My coaching session was a great experience as he not only helped me develop crisp answers that the interviewer was looking for but was also very supportive and encouraging in helping me meet my goals. After only one session, I secured the first job that I applied for. Thank you!".
"I was totally blown away by the support and assistance I got from Outplacement Australia. It was totally different to what I expected"
I was totally blown away by the support and assistance I got from Outplacement Australia. It was totally different to what I expected. It was tailored directly to my specific needs. That's not what you get anywhere else. Adrian's guidance has been superb and Michelle's writing and analysis skills really opened my eyes to my own abilities and experience that I can bring to employers. I thoroughly recommend this service.
"The confidence boost was great and the comments I received on the quality of my resume were awesome"
The confidence boost was great and the comments I received on the quality of my resume were awesome. The hardest thing was which job to take as there were offers hand over fist and one company offered a position more than once. Thanks guys for putting my skills into an understandable perspective God Bless
"Gill assisted me with the development of my resume, which today I still get complimented on"
When I approached Outplacement Australia, it was my first experience being unemployed. Outplacement Australia made the whole experience less painful. Gill assisted me with the development of my resume, which today I still get complimented on. There is no doubt in my mind with the coaching and assistance I received over the 3 months of unemployment was of great value and got me the fantastic job I have now. I would have no problem recommending Outplacement Australia to any friends or family
"You are amazing. I can't believe how thorough and dedicated you are"
"You are amazing. I can't believe how thorough and dedicated you are. I can't believe how willing you were to support me. I want to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to yourself and Rebecca at Outplacement Australia, for the support, patience and guidance through the interviewing maze of today's job market process. Your dedication was far above my expectation. You took an active and personal interest with my progress and from your "catch ups" addressed each issue with sound advice and working documentation. Your understanding and professional approach gave me the confidence and edge with job applications and interview proficiency to succeed. I will certainly be recommending your services."
"I don’t think I could have done it without you"
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to both yourself and Michelle for all your assistance in helping me secure new employment. To be completely honest I don’t think I could have done it without you.
Michelle, I see updating my resume as the absolute worst job in the world, yet even this seemingly insurmountable task seemed so much more achievable with your assistance. Even after 6 or more rewrites you were the consummate professional and made me feel like this was the absolute norm.
Adrian, your positivity and the constant reminder that everything took time and that I didn’t have to take the first thing I was offered was invaluable. It gave me the confidence view the interview process from a whole new perspective, to be much more critical of the role being offered and to better evaluate whether or not it was what I really wanted.
I have taken on a role in Canberra that I absolutely love and it’s great to be back in the XXX industry.
"It's a privilege to have access to this professional support from specialists who really seem to care"
Without your presence and support I would be in a spin. You are keeping me grounded and focused which is exactly what I need right now. You are also making me feel pretty good about myself with the high quality documents you are providing to me. It's a privilege to have access to this professional support from specialists who really seem to care.
"It really gave me the boost that I needed to get back in the job market"
It is a real blow to your confidence to be made redundant from a job that you love, and I was struggling to get motivated to start looking for something new. Michelle was brilliant- she got my resume ready to go out within a day and gave me template cover letters to use. When I found promising job leads, she helped me fine-tune the cover letters to suit. When I received a call for an interview, Michelle gave me excellent coaching and really helped me to feel prepared for the session- I was quite apprehensive as I had not had a job interview for many years. At all times, Michelle was positive and encouraging, and really gave me the boost that I needed to get back into the job market. I would not have gotten the placement that I have been offered without her help
"Everyone I worked with at Outplacement Australia were amazing and helped me immensely"
Everyone I worked with at Outplacement Australia, Adrian, Kelly and Michelle, were all amazing and helped me immensely in planning my next best steps for reaching my career goals. You'll be happy to hear that I'm back at work. While its only been a couple of weeks, and I'm still waist deep in the "learning phase" of the role, both the company and I are confident that I can help drive some positive changes in strategy and business process and lay the foundations for some solid growth. Thanks again for everything & keep up the good work!!
"I will be forever grateful for Danielle's understanding and support during this very challenging time of my life"
I will be forever grateful for Danielle's understanding and support during this very challenging time of my life. Danielle was instrumental to put me on the right track with refreshing my Resume and giving me advice about job search and with preparation for interviews. I have to say, the only positive experience about being redundant was that I met with Danielle who was excellent in every single way; very professional and emphatic at the same time.
"It was like meeting the most professional friend in the world"
From my first meeting with Outplacement Australia it was like meeting the most professional friend in the world. Not only did she help by re-writing my CV, but by being a positive support, when things looked dire. With such a great company you really are supporting ex-staff in a positive and caring way.
