Careerday takes you from today's career struggle to career-ready tomorrow.
Did you know that 75% of resumes are rejected before reaching the hiring manager?
The reality is that job hunting can be a long process for some of us. But landing the right job requires more than just outsmarting a numbers game or redesigning your resume — when you do it right.
But first... what does being career-ready mean?
"Career readiness is the process of preparing people with the skills they need to find, acquire, maintain, and grow within a job."
A career is more than just a job and career readiness has no defined endpoint.
To be career ready in our ever-changing global economy requires adaptability and a commitment to lifelong learning, along with mastery of key knowledge, skills and dispositions that vary from one career to another and change over time as a person progresses along.
Careerday is a digital career accelerator platform designed to help job seekers get career smart and level the playing field for career-switchers by achieving

What others are saying
"Gail's session enabled me to gain greater clarity on how to express my authentic professional self in interviews.
In her mock interview, she gave excellent practical tips on answering both common and difficult interview questions and tailored her advice based on my individual career goals and strategy.
Her career framework, strong industry knowledge and expertise on the differing roles within various organizations were incredibly useful."
"I have attended Gail's CV and portfolio building session and I find it really helpful for career-switchers.
Gail sat down patiently with me to understand my background and helped to look out for my blind spots and find ways to build my strengths.
On top of that, Gail has a great personality and it is a pleasure working with her!"
"Talking to Gail helped me to close my career gaps transitioning into UX design.
She is patient and pointed me in the right direction so I'm more clear on what to do next.
Gail had identified my strengths and weaknesses when we were doing a mock interview and these are the things that I'm currently working on."
"Thank you so much for all your useful tips! They helped me a lot! I was getting pressed to reveal my last drawn salary during the HR screening call but was able to navigate that successfully (took me by surprise honestly as I wasn't expecting that question during first contact).
I was also able to negotiate for a slightly higher salary with them by being honest about my previous package and helping them understand why I'm asking for xx% more. Thank you so much for all your coaching!"
"Gail is a steadying voice for the anxious mid-career switcher, and the tips and mental framework she shares in her classes are extremely useful for people taking that leap into an entirely different field of work!
She has been sincere in giving her advice and her honesty has helped me feel more prepared to improve how I present myself to future companies."
