What do we do at CareerWise?

We explore ways to help bridge the gap between your existing situation and what might come next.

Think about it… Talk about it… Do it!

“Transition points in life are where the old no longer works and the new has not yet arrived.” Mark Savickas

At CareerWise we explore ways to help bridge the gap between where you are now and where you might go next. We’ll have conversations, explore career pathways and together we will hatch some plans to turn your thinking into doing.



Be inspired, guided and supported with CVs and cover letters, interview skills, career decision making, career planning, career coaching, job hunting.

Clarify your thinking about your career transition.

“I wanted to thank you again for today.  I found the content so inspiring and motivating.  Lots to mull over!  Great to talk to others in a similar stage of their lives/careers. Having the course material contained in the booklet is so helpful – I can refer to it and complete the tasks at leisure.” Maria

“What I did want to say was just how well you spoke. It was easy, a good touch of humour, you brought the audience into your conversation and it had a personal touch. You relate well to your audience and I know you will never have any trouble delivering a seminar etc. to others. You could tell the group really enjoyed being there.” Tony

“Life After Teaching … Yep it’s all just beginning really but that’s ok and big thanks to you for the kick start in believing it will all work out.” Jenny

“Thanks also for being such a great support and sounding board –your willingness to listen without judgment has been greatly appreciated.” Pauline
