Business Development Manager, AusPost

Thought I’ll drop you a line to say I’ve successfully landed a role in Auspost as a BDM.

Yes, different from what we originally discussed but it ticked a lot of boxes in terms of what I was looking for and personal goals in the long terms. Many thanks for your coaching and guidance – I’ve learnt that my CV is a living document and it has evolved a lot since I first engaged your services.

Nevertheless, it was the starting point that landed my role today. I’ll continue to recommend your valuable services to anyone asking about getting ahead in the career. Cheers!

Consulting Practice Senior Director 

Last year I connected with Thai through a mutual connection. I was looking for a personal coach to improve my personal brand.

In a very short time, Thai and his team (Iris Du and Husne Aslantas) provided me an accurate assessment on the specific aspects I needed to build upon to pitch myself at the right level for prospective jobs, business situations and opportunities.

They coach me through multiple sessions on the strategic aspects of my personal branding viz – self awareness, voice, body language, dressing and elevator pitch.

I subsequently implemented the learning and am happy to inform this has brought me immediate success. An opportunity came by and I could see an immediate improvement in my engagement with senior stakeholder and a positive reception. This has resulted in higher visibility and also improved my career prospects.

I would highly recommend Careerists for anyone looking for evaluation and coaching to improve personal brand and value.

Associate Director, ANZ

Through extensive work experiences, Thai had developed a comprehensive understanding of what employers of all magnitude, expect from job applicants.

My recent coaching experience with Thai demonstrated the importance of his role in preparing a candidate to be interview ready as there is a clear distinction to his part to the recruiter, as the latter is merely a liaison, connecting me to my potential employer.

Through a series of thought-provoking exercises, Thai had personally trained me to become interview fit, succeeding through three rounds of interviews, despite lacking the two key prerequisites demanded by the employer, and holding the least work experience of all candidates put forward.

While I am due for an outcome this week, my progression to the final stage is attributed to his coaching aptitudes which are bestowed within me, or years to come.

Business Consultant, Venture Forth

I approached Thai because I needed his help with getting back to job market after 2 years being a business owner. Although I know I had great skills, experience and a strong education, I struggled to understand exactly what employers are looking for in a candidate.

Thai confidently helped my by reconnecting me with my passion, positioning my skills and experience, improving my career search, and articulating exactly what employers were looking for in a candidate without feeling overwhelmed and confused.

Reinventing a career was easy with Thai and I would highly recommend him to help you and empower you towards your dream career.

Thai has done a great job in being able to focus my communication skills to get the job I really wanted. He was able to help me filter out the noise and focus on my strengths so I would also be a great fit for my new team as well.

I’m interested in future personal development as well!

HR Business Partner, SPS Commerce

I have known Thai professionally for the past 5 years and could not recommend him highly enough. Thai is exceptionally knowledgeable in recruitment and career development – he is certainly an outside of the box thinker who cares about the people he works with.

Thai has given me some great ideas on interview techniques and has been my trusted advisor when I have been seeking work too, despite being a recruiter myself.

First of all, I would like to thank Thai for his amazing and generous efforts in providing help to all professionals and students to overcome their feats and be confident in achieving their goals and dreams. 

“The Perfect Interview Online Course” is one of his excellent creations, in which he will equip you with lots of nuggets and tips that can be used in any interview.

As my personal testimony, I listened to a few videos the day before my interview, and that gave me a lot of confidence and eventually I was successful in my interview!

The online courses are very easy to navigate, the flow and the connection of each part is logically correct it definitely met my needs. The useful concepts are the things a candidate should highlight during the interview.

YES, I would recommend the online course to anyone who is seeking job opportunities as it is important to be well-prepared to succeed in an interview. As this course provides the insights and perspective of a recruiter, it gives you the clues and techniques that a candidate should highlight with his or her answers! It was very detailed and bold, indeed.

Over a year ago I decided that I wanted to leave the banking/finance industry.

The thought of updating my resume, completing KSC and attending external interviews was daunting after a really long break. After a lot of procrastination, I approached Thai 3 months ago.

Having known him awhile, I expected a friendly chat. What I received exceeded my expectations. He was so professional from the beginning. He shared his knowledge and guide me throughout the entire process in a very professional yet personal manner.

I attended his seminars, did coaching and watched his Ask Thai series. It gave me the confidence and tools I needed to take the necessary steps to make the much needed change. Fast forward to today, I have successfully secured a position in the Aviation industry.

I am incredibly grateful to Thai and Careerists! Keep up the amazing job!

Reconciliations Associate, Vanguard Investments

So about a month and a half ago I asked for advice, I’ve been with my company for over 7 years and I was quite content with where I was as I was well recognised and value now but due to a recent restructure the workplace was becoming quite toxic in that EVERYONES morale was done and work ethic was disgusting and I needed to get out as it was slowly affecting me to which I did now want to slump my work ethics. I decided and needed to make a change so hence the initial reach out, but Thai Ngo understood and reached out further and we had a catch up and a coffee.

Long story short, he suggested I try his lesson and I took up one of his mentoring sessions but after just one session and not even completing the whole double session I have now been able to score myself another role in a reputable company doing what I enjoy doing where my skills will apply.

Looking from the inside-out we think we know how to do things but sometimes all it takes is just some guidance and for someone to look on the outside-in where all it is, is just some small adjustments and changes is where we can progress and move forward.

If anyone has any doubts about themselves like how I did and thinking why and if you’re not good enough for a job even though you really are but not getting recognised or why you can’t stand out from the rest, I suggest come out and reach out to Thai and don’t give up on yourself.
