Tonight’s feature is on a brand new start-up that really excited me when I read about it. I connected with Iris through the huge Facebook group for women in business, Like Minded Bitches Drinking Wine, and was instantly impressed with this very simple but very powerful business idea. We all know how daunting the employment process can be, and if you have had your own staff you will also attest to how difficult things can be on the other side of the desk! The thing that stands out for me in the Careerists’ approach is their values – it’s all about changing lives by building confidence for their clients and providing tangible, life-changing tools. That’s what it’s all about! Read about this Melbourne-based biz below x
Can you share the story of why you started your business?
I was in the beauty and fashion industry for more than 10 years. As much as I loved how I created confidence in my clients by transforming them to become a different person on the outside; I knew something was missing. I was never fulfilled.
I have found that in order to feel good enough as a whole, you must discover your true inner-self and unleash this super-confident power to achieve anything you want in life. I spent years studying human behaviour and became a NLP Master Practitioner and Hypnotherapist. I found my purpose and my passion; to help others unlock their special gift and build that unstoppable confidence.
The moment when I met my partner 3 years ago (now my business partner); I knew straight away that we shared the same vision and mission - to touch a million lives. Careerists is our start-up company which has only been established 6 months ago. We are now 5 crew members strong and have an office in Melbourne city. We are growing rapidly with an exciting year ahead!
Tell us more about the services you offer.
Applying for a job and going through the recruitment process can be nerve-racking and daunting.
If you are struggling to get recruiters and hiring managers to call you or succeed in your job applications, then Careerists can help you. We also coach business owners and managers on the process to identify and hire the right staff.
Our Founder and Lead Career Coach – Thai Ngo, uses his expertise which spans across 9 years to help others succeed in getting placed into jobs. He’s interviewed close to 10,000 people and placed over 2,000 people into medium to large corporate organisations across various industries and job categories throughout Australia.
The workshops we run give key insights on how recruiters and hiring managers assess candidates. Understanding the structure and blueprint on how the hiring process works will ensure that you are fully prepared when applying for that dream job or hiring staff that will add value to your business.
What’s your favourite part of your job?
Our workshops change peoples lives in a big way. When we hear about the success stories of those that have gained a career right after our workshop; or feedback from managers knowing how to hire better staff; knowing we’ve been able to add value and make a difference to someone’s life; that’s the best part of what we do.
What’s your #1 tip for those just launching their business?
Finding your core message and knowing your ‘why’. You want to ensure that your key message is clear to the world. If you don’t believe in your message, then how will you get others to?
I highly recommend joining communities and networking with like-minded entrepreneurs so you can grow and learn it from each other. That’s what we’ve done.
Anything exciting in store you’d like to share?
We’ve started working in the Government space and helping people who have a mental disability. These people have so many skills to offer but have no idea on how to sell themselves to get a job.
We’re helping change that by giving them the tools and blueprint to get back into the workforce and already have 2 success stories in the last month!
We are also launching an Empower women workshop to help women improving their quality of life so they can unleash their unstoppable confidence to achieve anything they want in life. My other division- Business Superwoman Club is a community I created to help women inspire, support and connect with each other.
I have organised an ‘Empower Women Event’ which will focus on building unstoppable confidence and transform one’s beauty from inside and out while having a load of fun. We just had our very first event last night and it was a great success!
