Since knowing Wendy and seeing the way she operates I now understand why the service is so necessary and how it all hinges on the provider. Wendy has an absolute knack of combining professionalism, commitment, compassion and reality to ensure that her clients receive the best possible information and support to transition from one area of employment to where they want to progress."

"Wendy Bockman inspires and rebuilds confidence in people who, for a variety of reasons, need to pursue a new career path. I found Wendy compassionate, wise and motivational when changing roles. Her understanding of recruitment imperatives and advice to Candidates is valuable."
Kenn - Communications Advisor, Adelaide
"I was made redundant in September 2009 from a Senior Position for a National Company. Wendy Bockman of Career Pilot was there when this took place and whilst the redundancy came as a shock to me, her immediate approach was gentle, understanding and sympathetic. Career Pilot had been employed to assist me in the transition to alternative employment for a maximum period of two months. Throughout that time I was very impressed with the overall professionalism, empathy and understanding of my requirements, skill sets and personal circumstances. Wendy was able to tailor her resources to meet those considerations and at every aspect of the process I was not only impressed but enjoyed the journey. Without a doubt Career Pilot is well able to assist any job hunter, whatever their circumstances and ensure that all elements of job hunting, upskilling, resume preparation, coaching and mentoring are met with enthusiasm, total commitment and dedication to the recruitment industry. Thank you Wendy and Career Pilot."
Ian Bellingham MBE, General Manager
"I used Wendy and Career Pilot services to help me get back into my chosen profession after being made redundant as a result of the global financial crisis. She advised me how to update my resume to give it a more professional look and feel, and helped me with networking tips and contacts within my industry. As a result of the professional approach she took to helping me re-enter the workforce, and after following a lead she provided through one of her industry contacts, I was able to secure a job within a short period of time."
