Hi, my name is Renata Bernarde. in 2018, I left my job to help others get their careers on track. My love for coaching started at a very young age. Over time, I realized that many professionals don’t know how recruitment & selection works, which negatively impacts their career progression.

Today I host The Job Hunting Podcast, a 5-star rated show listened to in over 50 countries. I also coach the Job Hunting Made Simple program, teaching professionals the steps and framework to make career advancement simpler and less stressful. I live in Melbourne, drink too much coffee, and some say I can talk underwater :).

    Gareth Hutchens from the ABC has written a series of articles helping job seekers understand unemployment data: my favorites are Why are millions of unemployed people excluded from our monthly 'unemployment' data? ,  Why doesn't the unemployment rate make sense? and Forget the unemployment rate. Job seekers need better numbers.

    Here is another interesting article: Long-term unemployment now worse than after 1991 recession by Caitlin Fitzsimmons in the Sydney Morning Herald.

    And finally, the table I spoke about with the duration of job search for each of the 108 Australian Labour Markets: How many weeks does it take to find a job near you? Search this table and see by Gareth Hutchens from the ABC.

    106. Two-year anniversary and the future of life and work.

    In this episode, we talk about the future of life and work for the executive professional. The pandemic has shaken things up for the white-collar worker. Many of us no longer do daily long commutes to work, no longer eat at our desks in open-plan offices, no longer meet face to face with clients and colleagues, at least not every day.
    These changes may have been forecasted and many times advocated for. But it was a pandemic that pushed everything over the line.
