Expert Designer

CV + LinkedIn + Portfolio + Job Search + 1-2-1 Career Coach


Psychology plays the largest part in the job selection process. Your materials (CV, LinkedIn, portfolio) and behaviour (layout, wording, tone, colours) all culminate to form an impression of you which forms your personal brand. Your materials and behaviour give a deep insight into you and your personality, your personal view about yourself, your colleagues and experiences.

The course content is designed to teach you how to create a powerful message within your materials as well as conduct. To help ensure you win your dream job we will teach you all the skills to empower you, your job search and create opportunities for yourself.

Learning how you can tailor your CV to suit the position you are applying for is an invaluable skill which increases the likelihood of being chosen for interviews.

You will have confidence in your abilities, it will boost your self-esteem and in turn employers will be more attracted to you and your profile. All of these qualities are an incredibly important part of your job search process not only for you as a job seeker but for you as an individual. 

The free coaching is at the end of the programme so that we can maximise the benefits to you. The course is structured so that we are able to assess the information you have retained by comparing your “before and after” results. From there we can tailor our 1 hour coaching session specifically to you and your needs. 

The course takes a minimum of 45 hours however you are able to go through to course at your own pace. We expect that the majority of students will complete the programme within 1 month of commencement.

Our students have been winning jobs in as little as a week from the coaching session and we are currently enjoying a 90% success rate. Success, however, will ultimately be driven by you and the energy and time you put into achieving your dream job. 

Please note we are not just teaching you skills to find a job but we are helping you to carve a career for yourself, which takes time and planning.

Simply put, there are ALWAYS jobs out there! Just because it may not look like there’s jobs being advertised doesn’t mean to say there are no jobs at all! We will teach you the same techniques recruiters use to find the 80% of jobs that are never advertised and put together a job search strategy so that you stay on track.
