G’day, I’m

TARA MICHELLE WEST

Career Transformation Coach

You spend the majority of your waking hours at work, so it is imperative to your wellbeing to be passionate and happy about what you do. When you feel this way, you never have to ‘work’ a day in your life.

WHO AM I?

I feel blessed that I can help folks from around the world in transitioning into a job they love… which started in 1992 when I fell into the careers space by accident when a client asked me to help with a job application.

From there, my passion for ‘all things work’ grew… leading me down a path of career coaching, personal branding and marketing, and job search strategies.

Knowing that job marketing should be centered first and foremost on what an employer needs / wants, I developed the first Employer Survey in the mid nineteen nineties, which continued over many years, where over 1000 employers who were actively recruiting participated in an in-depth look into the success of a job applicant.  Armed with these insights, my background in marketing, as well as my passion for human behaviour and psychology, I combined all four into a powerful combination that sees people find, land and thrive in work.

I have witnessed clients’ internal grief and suffering when they are not doing work that is etched on their heart, or they are working in a toxic working environment. Because of this, I developed a mission of helping people define who they are, what makes them tick… and importantly, what is etched on their heart so they can do work they love.

I truly believe that everyone has the potential to be who they want to be, and that anything is possible when a connection is made between your life purpose, values, motivators, and interests. We spend so much of our waking hours at work that it is imperative to our well-being to be passionate and happy about what we do. When you feel this way, you never have to ‘work’ a day in your life.

From my humble beginnings, I am honoured to have now helped thousands of people from 36 countries via my one-on-one and group coaching programs, job seeker software that I developed, serving as a career expert on numerous web portals, radio and print media, as well as relationships with recruitment firms, job boards, NGOs, and commercial industry.

I continue to maintain industry knowledge of recruitment practices, marketing and psychology, and harness a wide network of contacts, so I remain on the cutting edge of trends so that the people I serve have an upper hand in their career.
