Dear Colleague

It is tremendously helpful to clients or students if they receive career support resources customised to their needs and the local context.

Resources that back up any group or individual work you do with them.

Resources that include clear processes, effective assessment tools, tips, and vital "how to" information. You just don't have time to tell them everything they need to know!

The problem is that developing these resources for your clients or students can be a long, arduous process which keeps you away from what you really need to be doing.

Let me explain how I can help.

Several years ago when I decided to cut back on my career consulting work with my employer in the corporate sector and set up my own career counselling and job search coaching service I also needed to develop my own resources. With a Masters degree in Career Guidance and years of experience as a consultant plus as a freelance journalist I thought it would be fairly easy.

So I set out to create the ideal Career Direction program and a Job Search program specifically for Australia.

What I found...
and you may relate to this… was that an expected few weeks work turned out to be many months of research and over 650 hours in front of the computer! This was time when I couldn't deliver services or generate revenues. And my friends thought I’d left the country!
I tried to find pre-existing suitable resources which I could licence and then adapt to my needs. What I found was that nobody was offering remotely affordable comprehensive resources I could "make my own" and customise.  I also discovered that the available published books, manuals and assessment tools were too inflexible. I couldn't adapt them to my client group or my own approach. They also quickly became expensive on a per client basis.
So I decided I had no choice but to create my own complete system. For over 3 years I developed, tested and refined my resources.

The result is that feedback from colleagues indicates I now have one of the leading career system packages of its type in Australia.

Career Practitioner feedback:

I had spent quite a bit of time developing a number of tools and materials myself and was pleased to see your material was both comprehensive and complementary to what I had developed. 

The manuals were well laid out, full of comprehensive material and easy to customise. I really appreciated all the extras that were thrown in! 

To anybody thinking of purchasing these manuals I’m sure you’ll find they are well worth every cent. I found the Career Pro Resources to be incredible value.” 

Sean Reddell - Managing Director,
 Blaze Unlimited, Career  Coaching  and  HR  Consultancy

"Drawing on years of research and experience, and inviting contributions from other experienced career practitioners, Mitch Lawrie has compiled a high-quality, comprehensive resource for Australian career practitioners.

Speaking as an individual in private practice, I only wish this had been available when I was starting out!  It would have saved me countless hours of time (and money) compiling client manuals and resource materials.  

The fact that a practitioner can customise the materials in Career Pro to suit their own style and practice is a distinct advantage.  

Mitch is to be commended in taking this initiative to help raise the standard of information-sharing and professional support across the career profession."

Suzanne Davidson MAICD, AACC - Director, Life Artistry TM

"CAREER PRO caught my attention in June this year and has been a welcome addition to my resources, as a career practitioner in private practice.

Rather than being just another career book or stand alone assessment it provides a comprehensive, flexible system of career resources with unlimited reproduction rights for use with your clients or students.

In developing my own resources over the years, it’s evident that a lot of work and time has gone into the development of the Career Pro package.  I haven’t used every resource in my practice, but have been impressed by what has been made available."

Lois Keay-Smith - Editor of the WA AACC Newsletter
Principal of Career Wisdom

(For Lois' complete Review of CAREER PRO as published in the Summer 2007 AACC national newsletter click HERE.)

The CAREER PRO resources have also proven effective with hundreds of individual clients of all ages and backgrounds as well as in workshops I have run in the university, corporate and Job Services Australia sectors.

Workshop participant feedback:

“Very in-depth, practical tips and a genuine, obvious passion for career counselling and helping others. I’m glad I took the time to attend.”
Jaye Thomas

“Mitch has adopted a comprehensive, holistic approach to clarifying a suitable career direction. He also provides highly useful material for later re-evaluation and has many innovative suggestions to add value to the overall process.”
Claire Tune

It covered everything! The course was what I expected and more. Excellent manuals, thorough, well organised, and great tips for success.”

Kaye Walsh (Employment Consultant with a Job Network organization)

Now I have decided to share my programs with other career professionals.  


Rather than wasting time developing your own resources you get a lifetime licence allowing you to put your organisation's name on a leading-edge career assessment & development program plus a powerful job search program.  

Your benefits include:

Unlimited lifetime reproduction rights for use with your clients - just print as many as you need or make it available via a non-public website!

The flexibility of being able to customise, pick and choose the components and exercises that suit your client group and operating circumstances

Your organisation's name on the cover

Your name listed as one of the authors (I'm sure you'll add something to it... we career professionals like to adapt and personalise our materials!)

Access to powerful online personality assessments with instructional audio MP3 and debriefing resources (five factor model, Jung typology, & interest profiler)

Access to a PDF creator so you can convert your customised resources from MS Word to PDFs at no cost - ideal for emailing clients the Pre-Session Workbook

Everything you need to work with individual clients or even group workshops

Marketing materials and implementation support - email or call me anytime

A saving of hundreds of hours of your program development time (= money!)

More savings! - You no longer need to purchase printed career resources for each client  – you produce what you need when you need it!

What I am offering is NOT just another career book but rather a flexible resource package that you are free to customise to suit YOUR needs.

Some career professionals just change a few things, like the organisation name and the contact details. However, if you choose to you can add or delete as much as you like so as to match your unique operating circumstances and client group.

Because the package is so adaptable these resources can be customised to suit private career counsellors and consultants, life coaches, corporate HR, outplacement providers, schools, TAFEs, universities and job network providers.


There are 2 major areas of need that people experience with their career:

1.  What direction should I go with my career… and life? (The Complete Career Direction Guide)

2.  How can I get a suitable job fast?  (The Complete Job Search Guide & Toolkit)

CAREER PRO helps people focus on their priority need area. For people who are considering further studies or really want to focus on their career-life direction then the Career Direction Guide and Workbook provides a comprehensive and clear 7-step process for discovering their own answers based on a firm foundation of career development theory and practical experience.

For people who have decided their career direction or need to immediately manage a job search/career transition then there is the Job Search Guide and Toolkit. It provides 7 powerful job search strategies, practical state-of-the-art advice and tips on job searches that really work in Australia today.

The Toolkit then backs this up with a wide range of invaluable resources, resume and letter samples and further specific advice.

Let me give you some more detail here...


With the changes in today’s world of work it is essential for our clients to become more aware and skilled in managing our careers.
 This stimulating resource will provide insights and practical assistance to equip your clients to become active creators of their future rather than just another cog in the economic system… or a discarded part.

An important feature of this Guide is that it provides access and debriefing materials for a powerful online Five Factor Model personality assessment (a version of the NEO) as well as an Interest Profiler and a Jung Typology assessment. The NEO is very useful for improving client self-awareness and the practitioner’s understanding of the client’s potential strengths and weaknesses. These resources are self-scoring and free of charge for unlimited use.

ABCD Career Competency 7 "Secure/create and maintain work" is not listed above as it is the primary focus of the Job Search Guide plus other bonus resources contributed by the CAREER PRO team (see below).


Most people are very amateur job searchers when they need to be professionals! The best person doesn’t get the job… the best job hunter does!

There are 7 core job search strategies. If a client
doesn't know how to apply each of these effectively then their career will suffer as a result. At the least, it can take them  twice as long to find a suitable job.

This resource will assist your clients in developing excellent job search skills. It includes comprehensive strategies, tips, and resources.

Currently I am Director of Career Services for the EastCoast Human Resource Group. I'm also a “Career Voyage” consultant and trainer for JIIG-CAL Australia. (The Career Voyage software is a great complement to CAREER PRO. If you'd like to receive a free trial of this JIIG-CAL Australia software please email me at .)

I've had a deep interest in what makes people successful for a couple of decades now. I've successfully provided career support services to numerous individuals and organisations, such as the University of Queensland, Brisbane City Council, Energex and Queensland Rail.

My own career path has been diverse. Career experience includes the corporate, government and community sectors in Australia and ten years overseas in a variety of roles such as freelance photojournalist in the USA, leadership lecturer in Russia and international service project coordinator in Turkey, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Guatemala.

The following highly experienced career consultants have also contributed resource material:

Annemarie Cross 
Annemarie is a triple-certified/multi award winning Resume Writer, Career Coach, NLP Practitioner, author, and founder/principal of Advanced Employment Concepts, a career consultancy offering specialised solutions/programs for people striving to achieve success, meaning and fulfilment in their careers.

Suzanne Davidson
Suzanne is a career coach, business woman, lawyer, teacher and a Professional Member of Career Development Association of Australia (CDAA). She is the founder of Life Artistry, a holistic career consultancy helping people to find the work they love. She consults with and mentors individuals and conducts seminars around Australia. 

Danielle Rivas
Danielle is founder of Career Profilers, a career development consultancy dedicated to helping people choose and change careers. She is a career & job-search coach, Disability Employment Network (DEN) coordinator, former Job Network manager and professional member of the CDAA.


When I was with a previous career consulting employer we quoted over $10,000 to provide other start-up consultants with similar resources, systems and support.

If you attempted to develop similar materials in-house the costs in staff hours would also be far higher. The bare minimum time needed to produce anything beginning to approach these resources (without the bonus resources!) would be eight weeks = 200 hours x $35/hour = $7000!

It is, however, my aim to make these resources accessible to as many organisations as possible. Remember that these are lifetime unlimited reproduction licences so that your cost per client or student is far less than if you purchased individual hard copy resources. 

You receive a Lifetime Licence to use:


   1.  Career Direction Guide & Workbook
   2.  Job Search Guide and Toolkit
   3.  Job Search Secrets Revealed - Two Interviews with Recruiters
   4.  Career Success & Job Search Success - Essential Tips Audios
