The Interview training was great and I would recommend it to anyone looking at changing careers or rejoining the workforce.

Jason M

The training moved at my pace and gave me the confidence to go into interviews with the Public Service believing I could deal with the questioning I would face.

Janine C

You have really opened my eyes to what the civilian market place is all about. Such a comprehensive program that is perfect for ADF people. A great service, thanks.

Brian B

Your services helped me attain employment on my first go, and your staff were extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with. By the way I still have that job and am still enjoying myself.

Greg C

I think one of the best parts of the career coaching was the sample questions Wayne had me fill out. Previous to this I had never really thought about the questions that may be asked in an interview so it was a great learning experience. 

Thomas W

The support and information that I was provided by the staff at CMP was second to none. The relevance and current training provided has made me more confident and knowledgeable in searching and applying for future job positions. 

Lee V

All the information and training was spot on for a person who has not been in the real world for over twenty years. I found employment by approaching prospective employers and providing them with my CV and gained permanent/part-time employment immediately. 

Justin K

After discharge from the Defence Force I had applied for several jobs (about 10) with the CMP CV. From this I received two replies, on both occasions I was offered an interview and due to the coaching I received, was successful with both offering me employment.

William H

I wish to inform you that I have just accepted a position from a company in Sydney and will no longer require the excellent service you have provided me in the last year. Your services do have a lot to offer for ex-military people like myself and is a great value to us, again I thank you for your efforts.

Paul N

Your service was delivered very professionally. I'm very grateful for the time and effort you all put in to help me understand what I had to do to win the job I wanted It was uncanny how close your interview training was, which made it relatively easy to get the job. Thank you

Kathy C

After a 24 year plus career, I ventured into the new world. I tried another employment agency with all the promises, bells and whistles, but it was the team from CMP that delivered ! I got the job I wanted after the first interview. CMP opened the doors and delivered on the ways and means of landing a well paying job in a competitive world, true to their word. Very many thanks

Michael P

I am very happy with the CV that was provided to me, and I think it will give me a great chance of starting a new career (as scary as it is!). I also found the interview coaching provided by Ross to be hugely beneficial. He took me out of my comfort zone and made me think about how to address interviews correctly, and to think more about the questions that will be asked of me. I've found all the staff at CMP to be highly professional and I have enjoyed my interaction with the company and I value your services. 

Lauren G

I would like to say a HUGE thank you to you and the CMP team for all your assistance with my job application. Of the 267 applicants I managed to win the job and they were so impressed with the Resume and Criteria that they have asked to keep a copy as a reference to what it should look like. I cannot thank CMP enough and I have handed out as many business cards on your behalf as I can.  Thank you again. Jack H

I would firstly like to thank you for all you help advice and the resume that CMP had written out as I was successful in the interview for customs and I have been employed with customs since Oct 2012. CMP helped me in achieving my goal of being employed away from Defence.  Again I thank you for your company's help and helping me become successful in getting the job. 

James W-M

All the information and training was spot on for a person who has not been in the real world for over twenty years. I found employment by approaching prospective employers and providing them with my CV and gained permanent/part-time employment From start to finish the experience was fantastic. Resume fantastic, mock interview training and preparation was such a great help for me as the Navy has been my only job and I had previously little if any exposure to this. I had two interviews a week ago and went into them with confidence and came out feeling like they went really well.  . 

Michael S

I would absolutely encourage anyone (regardless of rank, service or experience) who is thinking about leaving Defence to use your excellent services - especially the interview training sessions.  The training was excellent, I felt better prepared and nothing came as a surprise during the interview and selection process. The training allowed me to relax, focus on the task and respond accordingly to questions.  Being aware of what is expected outside of the Defence environment is a real advantage, the CMP services and training made a real difference and gave me the edge over the other applicants.

Phil D

Just thought I'd let you know, after my first interview I was offered a job. I had another interview while waiting for the first offer and was offered a job with the second one as well. So, I was in the fortunate position of having to choose.   As well as the first two, I am still in the assessment phase with another company. I have done two rounds of testing and awaiting the next. I could be shortlisted for up to a year for that job so it may be worthwhile later. You never know.  Your coaching program does work. Thanks for all your help

Matthew N

Great news - had approval from the delegate and start the new APS position Monday 07 Feb; negotiated a mid pay-band start as well. Ross, your last phone-call going through the interview questions was invaluable on-top of all the CV/SC support. I have dealt with CMP team twice now since leaving the Navy with outstanding results both times and will certainly be recommending you to those who are job hunting - thank you all!

Warren N

I would recommend Paul and his team to not only family members but anyone looking to increase their chances of gaining employment.  Their continuous ongoing CV updates that are prompt and delivered with the utmost professionalism. The interview training gave me increased confidence and I still use aspects of it within my job when talking to my employer. After I gained employment the team at CMP still keep in touch with how I am going and are always there for advice or further development. Their customer focus is second to none and stands apart from any other employment agency that I have ever used.

I left Army in 2007 and joined a Defence industry org.  It was quite comfortable and I thought I’d made the transition to civvy life pretty well.  After a redundancy in 2013 left me looking for new work, I started to apply for other jobs.  I thought with a Masters Degree in IT and a number of Diplomas, I’d be certain to get an interview.  30 applications later, not one interview.  I was even contemplating doing a driving job. So I engaged CMP to help write my CV and with interview training.  I had no idea how off the mark I was.  Two applications, two interviews and I now love the job I’m in.  Everyone should use CMP for a career change.

Jeff M

Your service knowledge and experience allowed me to gain more from the training than I feel I would have otherwise. The collective service experience within CMP meant that Wayne (and I’m sure all the other staff) could identify qualities and instances that I perceived as “just doing my job” as “going above and beyond” in the workplace.  Rather than identifying all the benefits of the training, as I am sure you are well aware of the positive outcomes your clients experience, the other thing I would like the mention was the exceptional support and understanding I received from Wayne throughout my transition process, during a time when I was facing a whole lot of changes, the “extra mile” that Wayne and yourself put in was amazing. 

Michaela G

Before we started this training I thought I had the confidence and ability to walk into a job interview and perform well. This is what I thought anyway. But over the last few weeks I quickly realised how wrong I was.  CMP deliver an excellent training package that not only prepares you for the outside market, but it also grooms you for a reality check. Your training provided me with a reality check, confidence, relevance, professionalism and valuable insight into the public sector and recruiting strategies. Even at this early stage of my training I feel that I have vast potential to begin my journey for a new and exciting career.  In summary, my feedback to CMP is highly positive with no complaints at all. You are all professional, passionate, enthusiastic and you all care for the well being of all job seekers. 

Mark F

My dealings with CMP have been absolutely professional, insightful and very helpful. The interview training I have received from Paul showed that I was still very "Army" when referring to what I had achieved in my career.  My references to postings, subject courses and promotion courses being now referred to job relocations, trade professional development courses etc has now changed the way discuss employment.  I am not perfect with it - Yet!, but I'm well on my way.  Kristie's work on my CV was excellent.   I am very happy with the end product.  My dealings with Ross and Karen over the phone were great. They were extremely understanding and worked with my timeline. I have been recommending CMP to all my friends who are thinking about discharging and will be happy to do so in the future.
