“I have recently taken up the position of General Manager of Hay Shire Council.  I sought the assistance of Joanne McRae in preparing for my interview.  I found Jo’s assistance very comprehensive, particularly in practising the process of anticipating and answering interview questions.  It gave me additional confidence in my preparations and I was successful at interview. 

I would recommend the services of Jo McRae and Mayten Consulting to anyone seeking assistance with successful career development.” Amanda Spalding, General Manager, Hay Shire Council

“Mayten helped me prepare for an interview for a University that I wanted to get in to. Jo  helped me with what I should say about myself and how to approach questions asked by Unis and employers. I found Mayten very useful and highly recommend it for young adults heading into the workforce or Universities.”  Milton, 2017 Interview Prep
