Banking Administration Specialist
As they say, we do not get a second chance to make a first impression, do we? So if you are in Australia trying to find your niche or planning to come here, then it is vitally important that you seek the right advice. The right advice to hone your communication skills; the right advice to write a powerful resume and a cover letter; the right advice to help you understand Australian culture and workplaces. If this is what you are after, look no further. Terry is just the person and I cannot recommend him highly enough. When I came to Melbourne in August 2011 from Sri Lanka, I'd only known "seek.com.au". It is Terry who helped us understand Aussie culture, improve our interview and telephone skills, and introduced a very effective format for the resume and cover letter which has secured me many professional interviews. Terry's down to earth approach to dealing with us, the simple yet very effective method of communication and his engaging personality make working with him a sheer joy. Now I'm working for one of Australia's leading companies in the finance team, thanks to Terry. If you too want the same success with a pleasant struggle, if you want to take the bull by the horns, then as I said already, I cannot recommend Terry highly enough. Good luck guys! I could do it. So can you!
Terry is a person who knows the Australian work culture and job environment better than anyone I have met so far. Apart from that, his understanding about different cultures is good. He is the one who knows what are the differences between our culture and the Australian culture and guided me and others on what one can do to overcome them. He can guide anyone on the most minute of details which most of the time we think aren't of much importance and later on while working I realized these things matter a lot. His networking is also very wide; it's because of him only that I got my work placement and later an offer for the job. He is the one who understands the different types of industries well. Please consider English classes too; generally there is a difference not only in speaking but how we write English too.
In life, “Change” is a constant factor and transitioning through the changing phases at times is tough. Especially when you have the big physical ones like changing jobs or moving across country. When I moved to Australia four years ago I needed some help adjusting to this change and understand how to get back into my preferred career path. Terry helped me make the transition with his supportive coaching technique. Over a period of few months Terry helped me understand the nuances of applying for a job in Australia and I was successful in procuring a job with one of the Big Four Banks. In addition, Terry also helped with my personal development and helped me review my interactions with my peers and make substantive changes which assisted me with the interview process.
