All of my education, work experience and life experience has lead me to this – empowering others to work towards the career they wand and/or to manage the one they have.

“Initially a school leaver when I contacted Jo Pilon. I have secured a two year Business Administration Traineeship position with Roads & Maritime Services in Parkes, NSW.

I am currently acting in a Business Administrative role in Newcastle while actively seeking full time employment still within RMS in the Newcastle region.

I had heard so many positive things about Jo’s ability to write great job applications. As I was fresh out of school with little knowledge on how to create an application, I knew I needed Jo’s skills and experience to produce a well written cohesive job application that would significantly increase my chance of being selected for the job

I could not be happier with where I am now, I am in both the position and location I work with the best bunch of people who make work enjoyable everyday. Without engaging Jo to write my job application I know for a fact I would not be where I am now.”

Previously a school leaver

“I have worked in agriculture since I was a young bloke and have a lot of experience but no qualifications.

A job came up in the organisation that I worked for that I knew I could do, but I was not confident that I would get a look in due to my not having the required formal qualifications.

Kate Pilon helped me by asking a lot of questions that made me realise how much I had achieved and could offer, she then wrote me a CV based on our chat.

Even though I did not have the qualifications mentioned in the job advertisement, I made it to final round interviews based on my resume and how it communicated that I had relevant skills for what they were looking for.

I’ve since used that resume to apply for another job, which I ended up getting.”
