Knowledgeable, informed and a good sounding board

I have recommended Mark over a number of years when people have asked me for resume assistance and career coaching and I have always received excellent feedback. I recently met with Mark for my own career coaching. He is knowledgeable, informed and a good sounding board if you are looking for assistance when job hunting.

What do you need help with?

Job search: How to find the right opportunities

Actively looking but don't know where to look?

There's more to job search than job boards. Do you know how to tap into the hidden job market, how to control your job search programme, and the key mistakes to avoid?

Resume/CV ApplicationsHow to secure interviews

Not hearing back when you apply for jobs?

Your resume is probably letting you down. Or perhaps its your cover letter? Or maybe you are making common mistakes in the way you approach job applications?

job application obstacles

Interview preparation: How to convince them you are the best candidate

Getting interviews but not the job?

Are nerves getting the better of you? Do certain questions catch you out? Or perhaps you haven't got a clue what's going wrong as it seems fine on the day?

Salary package negotiation: How to get what you deserve

Got the offer but it's not what you expected?

Thinking of taking it anyway because you don't know what to do? Thinking of rejecting it because you don't want to deal with confrontation? Or perhaps you are considering staying where you are - even though you are unhappy?

Remove whats standing between you and your perfect job

You will get there

Well it was one great experience, Mark always knew when and how to do things. Like seriously his mentoring is invaluable, and he never promises anything that he cannot fulfil. Rest assured, if you follow his recommendations at every stage, you will get there. Loved how things were rolling ‘as he usually says and would recommend indeed.
