Celebrating our 1st Anniversary

We are only 9 days away from our 1st business anniversary and we decided to celebrate this with a well-deserved upgrade.


It was 01 April 2013 when we launched our 1st blog post to reach out to Job Seekers & Hiring Managers in Australia & New Zealand. It has been a busy and rewarding year with a lot of interesting stories, candidates and client wins. We have managed over 130 blog posts and reached many thousands of readers during the last 12 months – and the number is growing rapidly.


Our unique Resume Writing Service has attracted and helped many Australian and New Zealand based Job Seekers to find new work and our Head Coach, Ulrich Schild, has been very busy blogging, speaking and workshopping at job fairs & business events on both sides of the ditch.


We have also received an amazing amount of feedback to ‘soldier on’ with our mission to provide more of our authentic, real-world career support and guidance.


To ensure that you enjoy it even more we decided to notch it up another level for our 2nd year. We have listened to your feedback, we have taken all your suggestions and recommendations to heart and we decided to enhance our site with new services, more features, more flexible pricing and a brand spanking new name.


But before we crank up the engine of the new service site, we’re taking a mini break…..


So, stay tuned and in the meantime visit our Facebook & Twitter account ( #TheJobSearchCoach and @ulrichschild ) if you want updates while we enjoy a few days to re-charge our batteries. Join us back here on 2 April 2014 when we return as:

May the bridges I burn light the way

I regularly read career advice articles about coping with a bad boss or how to fire someone in the most appropriate way. What I can’t find much on are insights and tips about ending a work relationship with a person who’s not your manager or your employee, or ending a personal relationship that adds no value or drags you down.

You know what I mean?!  I am talking about the LinkedIn contacts or the Facebooker or the personal friends or the co-workers with a not so positive vibe or influence on your life. Read more
