Proposed course outline

  • Session 1: Introduction, expectations, and goal setting.
  • Session 2: Identifying personal, transferable, and technical skills.
  • Session 3: CV and cover letters.
  • Session 4: Communication, mock interviews, and personal presentation.
  • Session 5: Where are the jobs? Hidden job market.

Employers value transferable skills and hire based on those combined with your personal qualities. This course will help you work out your transferrable skills and add them to your CV.

We intentionally have small class sizes as it helps with improved learning outcomes, and you receive more personalised attention from the career coach. Learners can also share ideas and learn from each other. We love collaboration!

The course is in the beautiful two-hectare Risingholme Park in the renovated and heritage-listed Homestead. It is a calming and serene environment to learn and develop in. 

We have free parking too!
