How LinkedIn can Advance your Career

LinkedIn is a powerful career development tool for individuals at any stage of their career, including senior high school students, professionals from graduate to executive level, creatives, contractors, consultants and business owners. Over the last twelve months, we have seen upheaval in the job market and a loss of jobs spanning all levels and from across multiple industries.

Finding your ‘best fit’ career

In our career coaching work at Relaunch Me, our mission is to help people identify their ‘best fit’ career; that is, a career aligned to their personality type and core values, utilises their key strengths and provides content that they are genuinely interested in.
