What our clients are saying..

“Tara was amazing from the first moment I met her through an online search. She is such a friendly and insightful person that truly cares about the lives of those she helps with their career journey. She listened to my career ambitions and tailored my resume to suit. She also updated my LinkedIn profile and gave lots of tips on searching for new jobs. I recently applied for a tax accountant role and was successful in obtaining a position. Tara vast experience with the written application and interview process served very well. I can certainly say that her services worth more than she charges Thank you so much, I highly recommend My Job Mentor!” Arslan Sheikh, Accountant

“I went for 14 interviews in a 3 month period. It was clear that my resume was getting me in the door but I never received an offer of employment and thought I was clearly doing something wrong. I was starting to lose faith in my skills and confidence and so I found Tara on the website and gave her a call. We had a ‘mock’ interview; and she immediately gave me her thoughts as to what might be going wrong and then gave me the solutions to fix it. I had another ‘mock’ interview with her a week later and she said there was a vast improvement. I went for two interviews after having interview mentoring sessions with Tara and I was offered both jobs!!! I could not have done this without Tara, her expertise is invaluable. I wish everyone who is finding it difficult to get a job knew about her. She’s amazing. I’ll never forget your help Tara – thank you. I can’t recommend you highly enough.” Ann Geake, University Admin

“Tara was fantastic!!!.. her professional approach and attention detail exceeded my expectations. She was very approachable and easy to deal with. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough… a great experience!!” Mark Leech, Sales Rep

Tara is both professional and down to earth, when I first explained my situation, she suggested a package that suited my requirements and created a resume for me. Soon after that I started receiving interview calls and have secured a job. I’m lucky to have found her, if it was not for her expert guidance this process wouldn’t have been smooth sailing. If you are looking for a mentor, I highly recommend Tara.”  Lorrayne Gonsalves, Administration

“I absolutely love my new job!! The job of a lifetime, I am pinching myself every day and asking is this real? I’ve settled in really well. I am eternally grateful to you and give your details out to anyone who needs your help. You are just amazing at your job Tara. Greatest respect for an exceptional professional.
