  • Leah was fantastic! Her comments were really helpful. I was able to make amendments to my resume and have how secured a job as a document controller. This is the job I was hoping for, and Leah was just so helpful. I also got to revamp my cover letter. I start on Monday!

  • My visit to Fitted For Work lifted my spirits and helped me to re-commit to the job search process with a new frame of mind.

    Client Feedback

  • I just moved from Townsville and don’t have much of a network, so I felt very empowered when I came in today and it was nice to have some connection. The ladies are awesome, incredible and they make people feel good about themselves which is a big thing.

    Client Feedback

  • As I was new to the country, your professional insights and support was very much appreciated toward understanding local systems and expectations. I learned a lot of things such as how to use the right words, punctuation and presentation. The resume format and the cover letter was so helpful and now I know how to edit my own resume and cover letter better than before!
