Blu Ripples Career Counselling and Consulting Services - We are Open during the Carona Virus Pandemic

Blu Ripples Career Counselling & Consulting Services (including Resume Writing Services) is open and running as normal through the Corona Virus pandemic and offering you or your loved one Career Services through the comfort and safety of your home via telephone or Skype consultation.

So if you are considering your career options or maybe you have been made redundant and are seeking help to:-

Write or update your Resume or employment documentation
Explore your career options and pathways
Undertake some career or academic planning
Research the job market now and into the future; or
Provide outplacement services to your employees

Give me a call today and have a chat, there is no judgement here – just listening and support – I have been through redundancy myself and have helped thousands of individuals over the years through career transition be it voluntary or forced (through redundancy or employment separation).

All I can say, is reach out and make the most of this time, analyse where you are now where you want to be in the future, develop a plan, take action steps so that you are ready to capture opportunities as they prepare themselves.

Remember the labour market maybe tighter now with so many individuals out of work but it does not mean that there are no opportunities out there you just need to be resourceful and possibly look at different options until the pandemic is over.

Finally, I believe it to be beneficial to mention that as a nationally registered Counsellor (with the Australian Counselling Association), I am also in a position to provide Personal Counselling Services to clients who maybe struggling with fears, worries or general anxiety as a result of the changes that are occurring as a result of the pandemic – so if you are struggling and want to talk – I am here

For those in the Defence Force – I am able to provided Career Counselling and Employment Assistance Services to Defence Spouses and Partners through the PEAP Program so make use of this program through your self-isolation or lock-down time and be ready to jump when opportunities present themselves.

You can contact me on 1300 300 557 or via e-mail at info@bluripples.com.au

Stay safe everyone and if you do get the virus please self-isolate.

Was it a few years ago now or maybe never?

Well it is time to take advantage of Blu Ripples Free 15 Minute Career or Resume Health Check Services on Saturday, 1st November 2019 at our office in Medowie, Port Stephens.

What is a Career or Resume Review?

Blu Ripples Career and Resume Review Services, also frequently called a Career or Resume Health Check Services, is a free 15-minute career session, for all job-seekers of working age, to access expert career guidance and advice to help you identify your strengths and development requirements with respect to your career pathway or job search strategies (i.e. Resume).

How can a Career and/or Resume Review Help Me?

As outlined above, the Career and Resume Review Check is designed to assess and identify your strengths and to provide you with verbal feedback to assist you in attaining your career or job search goals.

In the past, as a nationally registered Career Development Specialist, I have provided Career and Resume Health Check Services to attendees at Re-Invent Your Career Expo in Sydney, as part of the CDAA contingent.

Frequently at the Expo’s attendees will seek guidance or feedback back on one or more issues for example: –

  • Why is my Resume – CV not working?
  • Why is the Job Search process taking so long?
  • What are my career options based on my current education, roles or skills?
  • What training do I need to do in order to achieve my career objectives?
  • I did not finish Year 12, can I still go to university?
  • I have started but not finished a couple of courses – why is this so hard for me?
  • Do you think I am been overpaid or underpaid in my current position?
  • I have been with my current employer for a long time and know I want a change but am not sure what to do
  • I don’t know where to start- I have no clue what I want to do

What do I need to bring to the Career or Resume Review Session

  • Yourself if you are an adult
  • An parent or legal guardian if you are under 18 years of age
  • An open mind, a willingness to talk and listen
  • A copy of Resume in paper format – for a Resume Check
  • A question or two that you wish to ask
  • Any other relevant and meaningful information that you may need; and
  • Some writing paper if you wish to take notes whilst I speak

So take advantage of this
