Bec completed a Resume Audit for me after I had completed her 7 day Detox Your Resume program. I was really impressed to receive a large report back with so much valuable information broken down into each section of my resume. Bec not only helped me with mistakes and gave feedback on layout and content, she also provided useful strategies that got me thinking outside the box. She helped me to realise how important it is to include only specific information relevant to the job I am applying for and suggested I have two separate resumes.
Bec's support and guidance has empowered me to take ownership of my resume and taught me how to strategically think about each job I am applying for and to make my resume reflect that. This skill has given me so much clarity confidence when putting together an application for a job. I also don't dread doing up applications anymore as Bec makes it fun and makes me want to present the best paper version of myself!
Around 20 months ago, I was at a crossroads where I feared my career was stalling. I reached out to Bec of Pop Your Career for some advice and mentoring. We discussed my work history, and strategized some resume writing and interview techniques. We did some roll-play using the STAR Interview Method, and I partook a DISC Profile questionnaire. Together, we strengthened my responses to interview questions by better structuring my answers, and refining my talking points based on the personality traits of my interviewers.
I did not get the job which motivated me to reach out to Bec. But I did win the jobs of my second and fourth interview, and my career is back on track. Right now I work with a richly experienced and very high calibre team in a prominent Federal Government Department in an area expecting a lot of growth, and I am receiving the upskilling I desperately need. I am happy doing what I am doing and the pay is good too.
After staying in a job that I hated for much longer than I should have, I took a risk and resigned. I’d been with the same organisation for four years and my C.V was out of date and pretty messy. I knew I had to do something about it but just didn’t know where to start and needing a job ASAP, I started sending it out to prospective employers. After not even receiving one bite, I contacted Becca and she reviewed and revamped my tired old resume. I applied for a position with my new C.V, was contacted within 5 minutes, interviewed within the hour and was subsequently offered the role! Becca really knows her stuff and I couldn’t recommend her more. Thanks a lot!
Rebecca was very helpful and gave me honest and useful feedback on my interview technique. She was able to put me in the shoes of the people interviewing me, so I could understand how to come across in the best possible way. She showed me better ways to present my work history, both in my CV and during an interview, to make it easier for me to show I had relevant skills and experience for the roles I wanted. Thanks for your help, Bec!
I recently approached Bec and she was so patient and understanding to acknowledge my desperation in getting a job. She didn’t treat me as your average recruitment agencies would. She set my expectations straight about how I should be approaching these jobs and advised me about how to clean up and address my selection criteria responses. I had a whole new resume and cover letter after speaking to Bec. A few months later I had 3 different interviews with the public service for roles that I would have never thought of applying for. I am now currently being offered a role at *** and I have never been this confident (not cocky) at an interview before. To see the positive response I get from interviews is overwhelming.
I approached Bec, having experienced difficulties getting to the interview stage of selection processes. Bec listened to my difficulties, sat me down and not only helped me format a new eye-catching resume, but explained to me why the changes she suggested were important to a potential interviewer.
Bec’s discussion with me about changes to my resume was very useful because when I got to interview, I was clear in my own mind about what I should discuss with the interviewer, what I should expand on from my resume, and what my strengths were.
As a result, I spoke more confidently and concisely than in the past and left the interview feeling I had presented the most employable version of myself.
I would happily recommend Bec to anyone who feels they are qualified for roles but isn’t sure how to catch the potential employer’s attention.
Thank you so much for your coaching, mentoring and the many things you have taught me. I have learnt so much from you, your blog and your expertise in writing the perfect cover letter and resume. I am so thankful for this and so much more, I really couldn't have made it to where I am without you! All the best x
I was lucky enough to meet Bec recently and she seemed to show up in my life with divine timing. I had just moved and was looking for work and potentially a change in career.
I have just completed her ‘Detox Your Resume’ online course (I hadn’t changed my resume in over 6 years!). This self paced course was the answer to my prayers. I not only learnt how to make my resume visually appealing to stand out from the crowd, but also how to appropriately tailor the language and structure I used to the specific industry I was seeking to enter. Packed full of amazing content, fantastic ‘cheat sheets’ and useful resources, this is the course that just keeps giving.
Rebecca has a fantastic eye for detail and getting the right resume to suit your personality as her services and packages are outstanding. Pop Your Career’s professional manner will make you stand out from the crowd.

Becca - just wanted to let you know that I am loving your Detox Your Resume course! The fear of 'doing my resume' kept me for far too long in a job that I no wanted to be part of. You make it look easy 🙂 Thanks!!
Rebecca helped me with an Expression of Interest. She really has a way with words. She is professional and knows exactly what she is doing. I will definitely be using her services in the future. Oh, I got the job!! Thanks Bec!
I first met Becca 3 years ago when i was doing my first job as an administration assistant Becca was my supervisor. As i was only 14 at the time I was very shy and not sure how to even undertake administration tasks. Becca was very excellent she explained everything and showed me examples. Becca and I have maintained our friendship and she has been very supportive and helped me through the horrible teenage years. Becca is a very kind but firm person who always puts everything into perspective. I have grown more confident and more street wise from having Becca in my life.
