Migrant Talent

Career coaching to help you compete in the Tasmanian job market  

Broaden the opportunities that you can apply for by understanding how to use your transferrable skills.

Your resume has a job to do, and less than a minute to do it. Learn how to make it work for you.

Your cover letter is a chance to state your value proposition and explain anything raised in your resume.

Where to find jobs varies between industries, however all job seekers need to use both proactive and reactive approaches. 

Determine what is expected and how to draw on your experiences to provide evidence in your response.

Make the most of every part of an interview to demonstrate the value your bring to the business from day one. 

Why does hiring you makes business sense? Now’s your chance to state your claim and to back it up with examples. 

Change is a constant in our careers. Being in the drivers seat means scanning the road ahead and being ready to respond.
