Graduate Employment

It’s a distressing statistic, but 51 per cent of graduates cannot find graduate employment.  If you’re a graduate, or a parent of one who’s in this unfortunate position, that fact will no doubt disturb you.  Why the disconnect?

After completing their studies, graduates can find themselves in a situation where they are suitably qualified and enthusiastic but after multiple applications, they do not seem to be able to even secure an interview, let alone a job! How deflating after all that hard work.

The VERY good news is, I know how to help you!

Tara at my job mentor is sensational at what she does, she has helped me on multiple occasions with job applications. she makes the process easy and really gets to know your strengths and can present them in the best possible format for your resume/cover letter. she understands the key words required in government applications and can use your previous experiences to create detailed examples of how you fit the role description.

My experience using Tara's services was impressive. I felt it was such a personalised journey and she took the time to listen and provide feedback. At a reasonable price she offered not only the work but also the guidance and training to allow me to complete applications. I had many positive comments about how professional my resume looked - definitely recommended!

Tara was simply amazing! I had a job application that closed in just a matter of days and she pulled it all together for me in no time at all! Very personable, warm, and understanding, Tara was easily contacted by phone and email throughout the process. My resume and application were brilliant. She then went on to help with interview preparation. And of course… I got the job!

I was referred to Tara by a friend and am so thankful for it!! I had been working in a remote location overseas for 5+ years and needed to completely overhaul my resume for a different industry. I felt completely lost applying for 'career roles' in the city and was so overwhelmed I couldn't even figure out where to start. From the first call Tara gave me the confidence and encouragement I needed to get back into the job market. She took the time to understand my background and showed me the value of my experience, asked the right questions to find out what was important to me, explained the whole process of online HR/recruitment and not only created a strong professional resume and cover letter that felt like me, but showed me how to do this for myself - this was invaluable!! Adjusting my resume for specific roles is so simple now and I've been able to apply for positions I never would have considered going for in the past because I feel like my application is so strong. After that first call I felt so much relief. If you are thinking of working with Tara I would just do it - her ongoing support and genuine care for her clients is more than worthwhile, and you will learn skills for life - thank you Tara!
