Even if you don’t have sky-high career aspirations; if you simply want something more fulfilling to slot neatly around your family and social life—yet still be paid what you’re worth—you’re also in the right place.
Ultimately you might be here for a few reasons:
We offer personalised career and job search coaching programs that give you the tools to carve your career corner into something that’s true to your values, objectives and expertise.
Using a one-on-one collaborative approach, we deliver:
Fully supported, step-by-step career coaching methods that hoist you out of your current job or career situation and into a direction that’s more honestly aligned with your life goals and values
Strategies that reveal unexpected, inspiring career avenues you’d never previously thought to pursue (or didn’t know existed)
Methods that heighten confidence, clarity and energy, enabling you to go after what you really want from your working life
Coaching in how to structure winning resumes and cover letters with (done with you resume services, if you wish)
Comprehensive interview preparation and as-you-need support, including interview etiquette, tactics, techniques and learning the psychology used by interviewers
Insights and advice on how best to market and position yourself powerfully, even if the thought of self-promotion makes you cringe
Salary negotiation skills that will help you approach the money conversation with persuasive ease
Truth be told, finding the right work takes work.
And yes, committing to a career coaching program might be unnerving when you either don’t have employment lined up or are already scratching for time.
Plus, how do you know coaching will work for you? (If you’re nodding reading this, don’t worry, we have a money back guarantee—more on that further down.)
To be frank, if you’re expecting to be spoon-fed all the answers, I’m not the right career coach for you.
How we help you is far more rewarding, with lifelong results. Once you’re given these skills, you can’t unlearn them—and you’ll pass them on to your kids and loved ones as well. Besides, we believe modern job search skills should be part of everyone’s education anyway.
We customise your career coaching program to suit your industry, personal goals and needs. You do the work, with our input and guidance whenever you need it.
Don’t let taking on the work deter you—the ‘work’ is your key to long lasting, enriched fulfilment in your career, your lifestyle and a permanently changed mindset to tap into whenever you need. Simply be prepared to do some thinking, digging and action-taking to get to the gold.
You’ll be a changed person as a result—in all aspects of life.
What’s more, we are 100% by your side all the way and you’ll end up with a tangible, powerful plan to fall back on for the rest of your working life.
There are some who’ve declined career coaching for valid reasons, but time and time again they come back after spending months, sometimes YEARS being unemployed, underemployed, or drastically underpaid.
They’re the ones who say, “I should’ve done this way back when I initially spoke to you…”
All because they’ve carried on using outdated job search models that don’t work and only keep them stuck in that soul-destroying grind.
“I was forced to accept a job outside of my chosen profession. For 5 years I’d been trying to find work in my desired profession without success—then I discovered Peter at Pillentum. Not long after I’d completed his career coaching program, I was hired for a role that paid me 3 times more than my previous job, doing the work I yearned to do. I’m so much happier with my work and finally feel I’m being paid what I’m worth.”

If so, these are additional areas of specialisation I can help you with.
I’ve been working with (and coaching) technical and engineering professionals for the last 20 years and am fully versed on what’s involved in the recruitment process.
In a nutshell, I speak their language and have a ton of insider
knowledge to get you on the fast-track to career success.
“After many years in a successful role I began to tire of the commoditisation of the workforce—suddenly I was having to deal with six people just to do one small job. Additionally I was experiencing covert age discrimination, so I came to Peter for coaching.
I never knew I’d be starting my own business but here I am today doing exactly what I want to be doing. Peter helped me to rephrase my thinking and I learned how to identify the right leads toward what I wanted to achieve. Peter got me back on track with life. If you need that kind of push, Peter is the one to do it.”

“Peter’s techniques are the new way forward for job searching—I’ve already passed my skills onto people in my network. Highly recommended!”
