Frequently Asked Questions
Career Counselling involves talking to an expert Career Consultant so you know about your career options and work out what is the best path for you.
You and your Career Consultant will discuss your interests including favourite subjects, your skills, your experience and what you enjoy doing.

Having had a baby a year before I booked an appointment with Kate, I was feeling very out of touch and like I didn’t have anything to offer in the workforce. My previous job had not been supportive of me during or after my pregnancy and I was feeling very irrelevant.
Talking with Kate made me recognise skills that I could use towards a new career and also made me aware that I had a lot to offer.
The program that Kate and I hashed out together kept me on track and I have now changed career paths and am working in a job that makes me feel more fulfilled than the work I did previously.
A mother of three young adults, I live on a farm and have worked in VET education for 34 years in Central Western NSW.
My main concern was finding someone to prepare a professional and polished application so Katie could make it to the interview stage of the recruitment process, because I knew that the job she wanted for her gap year was going to be very competitive.
I would recommend Jo’s expertise to anyone of any age who really wants an edge to their application.
I was very happy and told Jo she is worth more money!
