Rita Holland - Employability

ABOUT RITA

Rita’s reputation as a leading career coach has been established from over fifteen years’ and 4 000 hours of career and leadership coaching experience both in Australia and in the United Kingdom.  She has also collaborated with ‘transition to industry’ programs within a number of university faculties, and her experience spans a wide range of occupations and industries.

 

Rita understands the challenges young adults face when searching for a job and establishing a meaningful career. To support jobseekers overcome these challenges, Rita has created successful career coaching outcomes with a process that brings flexibility, clarity and integrity to common job search and career development problems.

 

In-person clients have benefited from Rita’s experience — and now EMPLOYABILITY subscribers can too. With her guidance, Rita’s clients benefit from her extensive career coaching experience, even during periods of uncertainties in the job market. They learn the necessary job search skills, gain useful knowledge about meaningful careers and experience successful outcomes as she makes the complicated process of looking for a job achievable by a broad range of individuals.

 

Rita consistently eases the challenges that many jobseekers face. Just as importantly, Rita progresses her clients beyond technical job search tools and techniques, towards a deeper understanding of what meaningful work really means and how purpose and meaning at work create a healthy well-being.

When she is not working Rita loves creating great food, learning from (and feeding) her two sons, and keeps working towards her fitness goals.

ABOUT THE TEAM

 

Alex Feher, Ingrid Thompson, Padraig O’Sullivan, Mark Hodgson and Paul Slezak. Each of you play transformational roles in making my fuzzy vision (something about a career coaching product that could serve many) evolve into EMPLOYABILITY. You gave me clarity and resolve, hope and courage, and the confidence to flourish in spite of the discomfort of entrepreneurial risk. You generously offer support, wisdom, resources and encouragement, and I am grateful. Thank you for being valued companions on this long journey.

 

Dilar Darmawan, Web Developer extraordinaire.  Your strong and quiet tenacity and dedicated talent helped make the site what it is today. For who you are and what you gave, I am ever so grateful.

Martijn Timmer, Timmer Marketing, who ‘gets stuff done’. Thank you for your adaptability and creativity and for ‘getting stuff done’.

Hameed Asghar, Instructional Designer/eLearning Technology Consultant. For your immeasurable patience and ‘can do’ attitude. Thank you too for sharing your technical expertise and creativity, your tireless loyalty, responsiveness and commitment to task, and your cheeky humour at all times. Thank you Hameed.  You are a pleasure to work with!

Aireen Silva, Words & Graphics, Editor. Knowing I had you on the team gave me the confidence and hope that this challenging project was achievable.  When all else felt overwhelming, I knew you were there, on my side, on task and on time with enduring graciousness.  Thank you. What a treasure!

James Morgan, AXS2. For your web design and digital marketing support, enthusiasm, and commitment — our sometimes-rambling discussions about what could be possible allowed my vision to be realised. I will be forever grateful James.
