Testimonials

“I worked with Shireen while I heading the Employment function at Virgin Mobile in Walnut Creek, CA. Shireen quickly demonstrated her staffing expertise and has a unique ability to quickly source and present those “hard to find” information technology and engineering professionals everyone is trying to hire. With her help, we were able to staff the enterprise and meet our talent requirements. She is a great partner for any company seeking to grow their organization.”

Client

“It was a real pleasure to work with Shireen during the recruitment process for my current position. I found her to be very engaging, informative, professional and responsive. Unlike the recruitment processes I have been involved in for previous and similar roles within other companies, I found Shireen’s to be very personal, thorough and the most complex; which I believe only helps to strengthen the chances of a positive/suitable match between candidates and available roles. I hope to work with Shireen again in the future.”

Event organiser

“Shireen,

Just thought I’d give you some feedback on the advice you gave me in our first session.

After I tweaked my LinkedIn profile and posted a recent graduation photo I’ve had 173 people view the post and 43 profile views. I’m somewhat stunned. Sound advice – thank you.”

Client

“It is so very difficult when searching for a senior role for yourself to get competent unbiased feedback on your resume, interview technique and approach. Unfortunately, and with good reason, most recruiters cannot provide honest and direct feedback on why you weren’t chosen for a role. This makes it difficult to identify areas for improvement and take action. After struggling with a number of failed attempts to secure my desired role, I decided to seek professional help and Shireen was recommended by a colleague.

Shireen was instrumental in building my confidence in my resume, reconfiguring my LinkedIn profile and helping me identify several issues in the language I was using to communicate in interviews. She provided me with tools to assist developing my brand and coached me through a mock interview. The experience was sometimes confronting, but Shireen courageously and competently guided me to an understanding of what I was poorly projecting and how best to develop a better way to truly show my authentic self with the utmost of integrity. I can’t thank her enough for this insight and ultimately, success, in securing the role I wanted.”

Client

“Although coming from a background in recruitment Shireen is not only a very effective career coach, but also a very effective life coach. Shireen’s career resources library, her analytical thinking, and her empathy are all valued, and I believe will help prospective clients in their professional and personal lives.”

Client

“Shireen is a knowledgeable, professional and inspirational business coach I had the pleasure of working with over four sessions. Having been out of the workforce for quite some time on a career break, Shireen’s advice and guidance on areas such as the hidden job market and the importance of building networks was invaluable. In particular, Shireen’s ability to listen and really understand the matter at hand helped me to regain my confidence and really analyse the direction I wanted to take my future career. I looked forward to each session and left feeling energised and focussed. This whole process has given me the tools and confidence to focus on a different career path, something I don’t believe I would have had the ability to do had I not engaged her services. I would highly recommend her services to anyone requiring business coaching.”

Client

“Shireen gave me relevant and practical insights, supporting my transition from employment to developing my own business and self marketing. I appreciate her relaxed, understanding and professional approach.”

Client

“A couple of years ago, Shireen supported me during a recruitment process from candidate to employee with impeccable work ethics, very professional approach and delivered an outstanding service until I was well settled in my job. For the coming years, I continued following her great insight advice on employability improvements and her wealth of knowledge about job market trends and modern job hunting techniques. Recently, I have encountered some difficulties in my career progression and have sought her professional advice. As I expected, Shireen was very attentive to my concerns and provided me with very practical guidance and recommendations that did help me to regain my confidence. Also, she has significantly assisted me to improve my personal branding and Linkedin profile. I very much appreciate her approachable style and dealing with her has been a pleasure.”  

Client

“Shireen was recommended to me to assist in reshaping my career after completing my MBA. I have found Shireen to be an excellent coach regarding possible career pathways with a large compliment of excellent resources to assist. Shireen has been accessible all the way through this process by providing guidance on a range of issues through email, meetings and telephone. Her expertise regarding different corporate recruiting practices has been exceptional and along with her tools, I have definitely benefited and seen results in my career journey.”

Client

“Shireen has partnered with us over the last six years to ensure that our recruitment needs are met not only by sourcing suitable candidates to meet our needs at a point in time; but sourcing quality candidates that have long term potential in our business. I would recommend Shireen as she provides a great outcome for the employer but also has excellent candidate care.”

Client

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the work and assistance you have provided it has been tremendously valuable and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to my contacts.”

Client

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Ben and you for the way in which this process was managed. I really appreciate your consideration and respect for the candidates, as well as the feedback in each step of the process. I must say this has been the best recruitment experience I have had in my 10+ years’ professional experience. I hope every recruitment process was managed like you have.”

Candidate

“Got the job, and negotiated an extra $5k. With the salary sacrificing options on offer, I’m very pleased with then net outcome. Thanks again for your help and support along the way! I’ll happily recommend you to colleagues and friends, and may well be in touch down the track to upskill further”

Client

“Shireen is extremely good value on career guidance and training. I was impressed enough to ask my teenage son to spend few hours with her. It was heartening to see how his attitudes changed for the positive.”

Client

“I gained great value from Shireen’s positive warm approach as well as her expertise in rebranding myself for the future workforce. I recommend her services unreservedly.”
