Individuals

“I have been a client of Jane since 2009 and have checked in with her for guidance every couple of years. As my work experience and preferences have changed, the sessions have given me the confidence to keep focused on my ever-changing goals! Jane has become someone I consider both a mentor and a friend.”
“I was a member of the Australian Defence Force for 13 years, and I have a number of skills which I found difficult to present on my resume. Dr Alicia Karwat helped me articulate my various skills and assemble them into an easy to read and presentable format. With a better understanding of the the interview process, and armed with my new resume, I gained interviews easily and I was employed in a full-time role within two weeks”
“Joan has been a great support to me in in my career planning. She has been an excellent listener, adviser, strategist and emotional support to me in the six sessions we did.
Joan has helped me identify my “REAL” MBTI, when others just took the data provided and didn’t challenge it. Joan did that and confirmed my true profile. This has helped me enormously in my career transition.
I fully recommend Max Coaching.”
“I underwent resume and interview coaching with Max Coaching a short while ago. I have secured the role of project manager and I am moving interstate to take up my new post soon.
I have been highly impressed by your knowledge, coaching skills and professionalism. I would recommend your unique proposition and lasting benefits of it to anyone.”
“The whole experience was fantastic. I have recommended my friends to Max Coaching and believe that anyone and everyone should do it.”
“I must say, after my resume was completed, I applied for a role on the Sat, was interviewed on the Wed, and secured that role post 2nd interview the week after - it was the first position I applied for. The feedback on my resume has been great, Alicia is a guru in this field.”
“What you have taken me through has taught me a lot about myself, what my preferences are and what I might like to do with my working life and as such, has greatly assisted me in making this decision.”
“Jane was very easy to work with and she was very understanding.
Completing the Kick Start Programme opened me up to career options I did not think I had and gave me confidence to proceed with career plans.
Overall the programme and service was good value for money and I would recommend Max Coaching to anyone looking to change or reassess their career direction.”
“I recommend Max Coaching to anyone experiencing a career crisis - see Jane and don't delay! Jane helped me to formulate a career plan and in doing so alleviated all my stress.”
“I attended a Career Check-Up session with Jane and found it to be well considered and very useful. Jane is very professional.”
“The coaching sessions helped me to clarify my career direction. It also helped me to narrow down the numerous career/ job options and focus on the relevant ones.”
“Max Coaching is the best thing I've done in years. Even though I've recruited at least 50 people over the past 5-8 years when it came to me being the candidate I basically had little idea as to the best way to approach career opportunities. I've learnt so much and I've been able to really get clear on what my strengths are and how much I've achieved. I'd recommend MaxCoaching to anyone!!”
“I found the sessions really helpful and I have since referred a friend to Max Coaching.”
“When I started the programme I didn't know if I wanted to be in the career I was in. After working through the MBTI with Jane, I discovered that I am in fact where I should be. It gave me confirmation of what job I should be doing based on my traits; and a stronger focus for my career decisions.”
“I found the sessions really helpful and I have since referred a friend to Max Coaching.”
“The guidance and advice you provided played a major role in helping me identify exactly what career path I wanted to pursue. Ironically, this role was the first role I found that really met all my identified criteria, as such was the first job I applied for, and here I am.”
“Jane is excellent at transforming vague ideas about future direction into concrete, inspiring steps forward.”
