Why AE?!

Are you feeling like your job search is an uphill battle? Do you feel like there’s no one to support you or even understands how you feel?! You’re not alone!! We’ve been in recruitment for over 22 years, we’re recruiters ourselves…and it’s time to give back!!

This platform was created for job seekers, like you, to elevate your materials, your self-esteem and confidence that who you are, and what you’ve achieved has VALUE!! Opportunity is everywhere so let us teach you how to find it, inspire you, drive you and create the desire in employers to hire you.

Welcome, to your unique journey… 

Stage 1


CV basics Black and Yellow

Don’t let your CV fall into a boring monotone string of adjectives!! It should be used as an insight into “you”,  “your” personality and “your” personal experiences.

Work with our team to bring out your unique skills as well as give you an insight into what recruiters and employers see in your materials. This is the starting point of you being able to sell yourself and win that job at the interview stage. This is beginning of you finding your voice!

Stage 2


Would you like to create “inbound” opportunities?! LinkedIn is uniquely placed as your own personal “shop window”. It’s your opportunity to attract passers-by and inspire individuals to want to work with you. 

You have the skills! So, let’s tell the world who you are and what you have to offer!! As they say “birds of a feather, flock together”… we’ll find your cheerleaders!!!

Employable-Designer Course by AE Academy

Working for decades with modern day, iconic names has given us a great insight into what the elite want, desire and need to observe, to make decision on your portfolio.

We’ll position you so that you are aligned.

Stage 4

Job Search

Communication is key!

Language, tone and commonalities are factors that help gravitate individuals together. However, in a panicked stricken state it’s very difficult to circumnavigate. We will work together to dissipate the mist, inspire, direct and drive you forward so that you are utilising your energy into worthy tasks to help you find your dream job!

I have been the last few weeks reading a gargantuan amount of blogs and articles – which have been useful to some extent, but this course has brought me a different insight to CV content. It never occurred to me that simple choices (in the likes of job titles; buzzwords; and whatnot) could actually be bringing me down in the actual job search war. This course has offered me an interesting outtake that I am very excited to try out!
*UPDATE* I already secured a job and I still have people reaching out to me with offers. So things are looking brighter 😁 It’s all happening because of your help – since they don’t use ATS back home my (our) CV is making an impression haha. I cannot thank you enough for that!

AE Academy inspired me to think differently about myself, my job search, and my materials. It's no longer a mystery and I'm already carving my career the way I want. I'm finally in control of my own future. My fate isn't in anyone else's hands anymore, it's up to me.

Would you recommend this course? "Absolutely! My mind is famously chaotic and 'all over the place' among my social circle, so planning and organizing my thoughts and actions in this journey was, honestly, incredibly difficult and draining. Obviously, I was incredibly frustrated throughout. If Hayley was able to help someone like me out, then I'm confident that she'll work miracles for others.

I never would have guessed on my own that the way I was presenting myself to potential firms needed… adjustments. I feel a lot more focused on what my brand is, showcasing skills/accomplishments for what they are, and how to approach potential firms! I don’t expect jobs to fall in my lap, but I have a much better grasp of what I should be doing"

“In one of your communications you mentioned that "what you learned from your professor, to prepare you for the job market, with regards to CV writing, would not work in getting that position". I totally agree with that. For a very long time i have written my CV where it seems that i am desperate for a job. I was looking at it from an employee mindset. You've tried to hammer home, that i need to see myself as a business of one and that's what my CV should reflect. To be honest i was a bit skeptical until i saw the final product. My CV went from desperation to "these are my skills, this is what i have to offer, when can i start". So yes Hayley's advice has assisted quite a lot, not just in terms of the CV being awesome. It also gave me the confidence to accentuate my strengths and boast about it (without arrogance of course). Since that CV i have been invited for interviews to a few high profile positions, hopefully they will stream in, so i can have more options to choose from. I would definitely recommend Hayley to anyone looking into CV writing. She's that voice you don't want to hear, as we are so conformed to social norms. But i can definitely say that she will be the one that can get you the results you want. Team Hayley all the way”
