Ready to stop wasting time going from interview to interview and coming second best?

Let’s get you noticed so you land a dream job where you can make an impact!

Ready to stop wasting time going from interview to interview and coming second best?

Let’s get you noticed so you land a dream job where you can make an impact!

You’re petrified. You’re petrified you’ll get rejected again.

You’ve finally landed an interview for your ideal role.

Perhaps you’re an introvert.

Speaking in front of a panel makes you nervous to the point of anxiety.

Sweaty palms, heart beating a hundred miles an hour.

You don’t want to stuff it up.

You want to make sure you get it this time.

This role is “the one”.

You just don’t have the confidence to get over the line.

You’ve tried a number of times, you get through to the interview stage but you keep hearing that the person who landed the role “had more experience” than you.

You’re sick of coming second and you know you have the experience, the skills and right personality for the role, but you just don’t know how to get over the line.

You have no idea what you’re doing wrong and you start to think you don’t have the experience to land the role.

You’re thinking “what am I doing wrong?”

What if you had someone hold your hand right up until the interview?

Someone who could show you your uniqueness, your greatness, your brilliance.

Someone who was on your side, someone who could show you how to bring out your best on interview day.

What if you could gain confidence in your interview ability and nail the interview so that you landed that ideal role?

Hi Athena

I just wanted to say thank you again.

I have been successful and offered a role! Senior Service Delivery Planner, Level 11/12

Exactly the kind of role I’m after!

It’s the best outcome I could have asked for.

Thank you Athena!

Fay, Department of Regional NSW

Thank you for your email.

I got the Senior Events Officer role at Council! I start next Wednesday. I’m excited but also nervous, I haven’t started a new job in a long time but I’m sure I’ll settle in well.  It’s a great opportunity and close to home which is so convenient!

Thank you so much for your help, I couldn’t have done it without you.

I definitely needed that confidence boost and clarification that I was answering questions correctly.

Thank you!

Kaela, Camden City Council

Athena helped me with some career coaching after a short break between contracts.

She helped me to 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 understands 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 within 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, Senior role, Local Council
