About How to Job Search
Our How to Job Search Founder recognised a huge gap in the job market for people who desperately wanted work but couldn’t afford a resume writer. Rather than have them looking for and finding a poor template, How to Job Search will provide live job search training, and for those wanting remote access, scenario driven templates with accompanying courses how to complete.
How to Job Search – giving you a hand up
If you’re struggling in your job search, or are about to start looking for the first time in a long time, it can be hard to know where to start in job search.
How to Job Search is about giving you a hand up so you can more effectively sell yourself for your next role. We give you the tools to empower you to succeed.
Currently we offer free How to Job Search general tips and support, and are running a pilot job search program for a local council. Soon we’ll be offering affordable options to assist job seekers in securing their next role.
Meet our Founder – Jane Tweedy
How to Job Search was founded by Jane Tweedy.
Jane Tweedy, Founder
Jane loves helping people and begun a resume writing business with great results in 2014 (100% success rate with clients to interview with selection criteria).
Jane has been a job seeker and successfully hired into corporate, volunteering and small business roles. She has also been a hiring manager seeing the good, bad and ugly through thousands of job applications (including graduate recruitment). More recently she’s helped small businesses recruit new employees.
Jane recently added to her formal qualifications with a Cert IV in Business and Personal Coaching, and holds a Cert IV TAE.
Speaker on job search and workshop presenter
Jane can run joint venture job search and careers workshops in Western Sydney, Sydney and the Blue Mountains, or standalone workshops and webinars on demand for people with shared challenges.
Jane speaks at events (Sydney or further afield in Australia and New Zealand by arrangement) as a keynote speaker, break out speaker or on panels on various topics such as job search, resume writing, cover letters, selection criteria, LinkedIn profiles, interview skills, career development and building personal confidence.
Jane tailors all her speaking to the group in question, so you can be sure participants find value in having Jane as a speaker at your event. Jane’s style is always interactive, engaging with participants, and sessions can be hands on or presentation style.
If you need a speaker for your event including careers exhibition, conference, student careers night or a community group, please contact Jane and she will see if she can assist you.
If your small to medium business is in the unfortunate position of downsizing or even closing, please contact Jane to discuss outplacement services for your staff.
We are aware corporate outplacement programs can be prohibitively expensive, however you want to look after your loyal staff.
We can arrange affordable packages involving group training or one on sessions with individuals or a combination of services to ensure your employees will be looked after during a difficult time for all.
Sessions can include dealing with the confidence knock and shock of the notice, identifying a person’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, how to construct a quality resume for their situation, the importance of cover letters, setting up LinkedIn profiles and job seeking tips.
Programs can start at an affordable level by running a few group training sessions, with personalised services incurring additional cost.
Our Mission is to help job seekers by providing a hand up, with tools to help you sell yourself more effectively.
