Hi Athena,

I just wanted to give you an update. I got an interview for the director role and had my interview last Thursday. I should hear by the end of the week whether they want to do second interviews or if they have made a decision.

Thank you so much for all your work. Having the key selection criteria and my resume so well structured really helped with my interview preparation. It’s all in fates hands now, so fingers crossed.

Thank you again.

Wendy Collins, Director, Australian Public Service


Athena helped me with some career coaching after a short break between contracts. She helped me set some realistic career goals to enable me to achieve a better balance between professional and family priorities. She connected me with employers who are advocates of working flexibly and I really benefited from her interview coaching.

Athena really understand the difficulties busy working mothers face and is passionate about helping mums find meaningful work. Thanks Athena for recognising the value that women with children can deliver with the workplace and helping drive change in the perceptions about flexible work. And most importantly, thanks for helping me personally find a role that suits my current situation.

Carolyn Gekas, Local Government Business Analyst


Athena’s great strength is her active listening that ensures that the best information is captured and incorporated in the documents she produces for you.

Her resumes and selection criteria responses are concise and very well tailored for the role you are applying for.

She genuinely cares about her clients and being able to help them achieve career personal goals and/or transition to new opportunities.

 We all know the difficulties in changing or starting work careers and Athena greatly helps facilitate the process.

 I highly recommend Athena and the fantastic work she does.

George Athanasiadis, City of Whitehorse


I was never one to ask someone to help me with my CV as I simply saw it as a list of things I had ‘done’ in the past. However, after seeing Athena’s work, I realised that I had definitely misunderstood the value of a good, well-structured, and evocative CV on finding opportunities.

Athena spent the time to get to know me as a person, help me with my concerns, and helped craft both my CV and my LinkedIn profile. She is friendly, professional, with an attention to detail, and with a passion for formulating a CV that brings out the whole of a person’s achievements in such a succinct and striking manner!

I am extremely happy with the results of Athena’s work and will be coming back to her regularly to ensure my experience and achievements are always seen in the best possible light. Thank you for everything, Athena!
