1. Tell us a bit about yourself
Kate has been managing recruitment businesses for the last 15 years both nationally and internationally and last year realised, she had a burning desire to really make a difference and share her experience and intel with as many people as she could by starting Kate Langford Career Consulting. Growing from just herself in the business April last year, to now a team of 4, as well as launching the Career Accelerator Program, has been a humbling experience for Kate and the success she has had. She has also partnered with the Sunshine Coast Council to help people in their Career Transitions and really enjoyed travelling the coast and reaching hundreds of people, by giving them the confidence they need to succeed in their own career search. Kate has a young family with two little kids, Leroy 5 and Gracie 3 living on the Sunshine Coast, Australia.
2. What was your first job and how did you get it?
Dominos Pizza Manager and loved it! I was a window cleaner to start with and I got it from walking in with my Resume!
3. How did you decide and get to your career today?
I have a passion for helping people gain confidence in their career search. After working in HR and Recruitment for 15 years, I identified a gap with employees, their confidence and HOW to get a job. I woke up one day and decided that I wanted to utilize the skills and experiences I had developed throughout my career, to help change people’s lives and find them a career they love and not just what they are good at!
4. What advice would you have given your younger self? Or what is the best career advice you have ever received?
Whatever you do, be the best at it. And never say no to an opportunity.
5. In 5 years, where do you hope to be professionally and personally?
With a team of over 20 people internationally focusing on career coaching, business mentoring, and recruiting for small businesses.
