I would definitely recommend Bernie to those that are seeking assistance in job applications and interviewing skills. After being unemployed for seven months, the workshops and personal advice that she gave me helped me to create a personal brand that distinguished me in the graduate programs that I applied for. I have now received an offer with a government department and would like to thank Bernie for her genuine care and support through the whole process.

Working with Bernie transformed me from feeling overwhelmed at the prospect of searching for a job to feeling confident to put myself out there. I've had my resume reviewed by many people before, but Bernie gave me really important advice and tips on it that nobody else had picked up. Her interview tips were amazing, and I learnt to prepare for an interview in a way I'd never done before.
She also gave me advice and encouragement that was practical, positive and genuinely helpful to give me the belief in myself that I need to convey to an employer.

I have known Bernie for many years and, as a HR professional, I have had the good fortune to partner with her whilst working with different employers.
Bernie approaches all of her interactions with a view to a long term relationship - a real partnership. For Bernie, it is not just a means to an end. It is about establishing a true partnership that delivers immediate results and long term value. I have seen this first hand over more than 15 years.
Bernie demonstrates genuine care, interest and empathy with individuals and immediately makes people feel at ease. I have every confidence that Bernie is the right person to help you get that next job and give you the practical skills to succeed in your career.

Bernie is endowed with relentless courage, vision, ability, a profound faith in humanity and an understanding heart. I speak from experience, as I have proudly worked alongside her, referred people to her, and received counsel from her myself.
She has over twenty years’ experience in guiding and coaching people into the right courses and careers. Her expert networking skills with the corporate world have also given her a genius reputation when it comes to understanding the needs of employers. In my opinion, she is one of Australia’s leading career coaches.
She is loved and revered by the job seekers – both young and old - she has helped over many years. I commend her to you!

Bernie has been my mentor since I started in the hospitality industry. I must say she is highly experienced and would provide you with great advice regarding your work as well as motivate you to be better, not to mention that Bernie has a broad connection in the industry. I believe she knows how to place someone in a right job. I am so grateful that Bernie helped me to get my current job which I have been working at for the past 3 years. Up until now we are still in touch and she keep checking up on me and how I am doing at work.

After reading thousands of blogs about Australian job searching I moved there still lost about the industry, job offers and the most important; professional growth opportunities. Luckily, Bernie was my guide and advisor during this path. She helped me to focus my goals, to enhance my strengths and to be ready for my first overseas job interview. Two weeks after I got three job offers and ended up working at the Banquets Department of a five stars Hotel, The Intercontinental. Thank you for your excellent work, Bernie.
