Executive Job Hunting

It's time to take control of your career.

Job hunting and career planning can be exhausting. When you're doing it on your own, the anxiety and lack of confidence are debilitating...

"I apply for jobs and keep getting "nos." Always the bridesmaid, never the bride."

"I'm stuck in a job, and I don't know what to do to progress my career."

"When will I get another job?! I'm feeling very anxious about the future."

"I need to reinvent myself, and I don't know where to begin."


Imagine this is you...

  • "When it rains, it pours! I got two job offers and was able to negotiate a salary increase and extra benefits."
  • "Although I was 'tapped on the shoulder' for an internal promotion, I decided to take the offer with another organization and expand my horizons."
  • "Every time I reach out by email or LinkedIn, I get a reply back with an invitation to meet. That is a complete transformation from just a few weeks ago!"
  • "I'm so glad I listened to you and applied for roles at a higher salary range. Looking back, it was the right decision."

If any of this sounds like a dream, I want you to know that it’s 100% possible for you. Because these are statements from my clients. And I have personally experienced all of the above, and have created a proven system to help you achieve your career goals.

That’s why I can't wait to introduce you to the Job Hunting Made Simple Program.

If you're serious about your future career progression,


The Job Hunting Made Simple program was designed to fast-track you towards your next job, achieve your career goals, and save you weeks (or even months!) experimenting and looking for a job without direction or guidance.

Executive Job Hunting

When you implement my proven system...



"I don't know what to do first and how to apply for jobs. I have information overload, and I get lost online searching...for I don't even know what!"

Have a step-by-step system to follow. Your days are organized. You know what your priorities are. You feel confident that you are on track to achieve your career goals.

"Recruiters never give me feedback. When I finally get around to applying for a great role...crickets! I hear nothing back. So much time wasted for nothing. At times, I just want to give up..."

Understand how recruitment and selection works, and the types of jobs you can confidently apply for, knowing you have a high chance to progressing to interviews.

"I don't understand how LinkedIn works, and I don't feel confident posting or commenting. My LinkedIn profile is there, and I assumed it was all I needed to do, but it's certainly not working the way I imagined it would."

Know what you need to do to accelerate results in your job search and career. Stop wasting time and energy with tasks that lead you nowhere.

If you're ready to go from being stuck in your career to being in control of your future, and you need someone who's "been there done that" to guide the way...

I created The Job Hunting Made Simple Program for you!

A proven blueprint for creating a prosperous career, aligning your values, and attracting your next job.

"Your content was always spot on."

"I really enjoyed being in a group. I needed a tribe, and after being on my own during the lockdown and without a job. So, seeing everyone at our Zoom coaching sessions was a treat. Renata, you are so good at this! And so personable even on screen. Your content was always spot on, varied, and never dull. You never cast judgment, and I can’t thank you enough for your support. And of course, I got a great job!"

Here's how the program breaks down...

The Job Hunting Made Simple program has 7 Modules designed to give you exactly what you need to start a successful job-hunting campaign and create a great and sustainable career.

Week One

Map Your Motivation & Life Goals

Every successful career is built on a strong foundation. Clarify and create intentional long-term goals for your life and career. Learn how to pursue your goals by managing your energy and well-being:

  • Thinking long term: Develop your personal impact plan.
  • Peak Performance: Understanding what makes you tick.
  • Manage your wellbeing: Managing your expectations and creating step-by-step results.

"Thanks to Renata’s Self-Discovery exercises and personal feedback sessions, I had the ability to search within myself to uncover talents I didn’t even know I had. I’m so glad I took this approach rather than hiring a freelancer to rewrite my LinkedIn profile and CV. There is no “going through the motions” with Renata. Her warmth and genuine interest in helping others reach their personal career goals set her apart from the rest.” - Christine, USA

Week Two

Understanding Your Strengths & Developing Your Strategy

Know and embrace your key strengths. Reconnect with your career and personal achievements. Align them with future career options:

  • Get to know your Character Strengths and learn to use them to your advantage.
  • Assess your career strategies and identify the black spots and bottlenecks.
  • Organize your personal career archive: Curate your stories, achievements, and feedback you can use to wow your audience.

"The program is very well-structured in terms of the documentation and the various steps. There's definitely a difference in how I applied for jobs before and after the program. It worked for me. It all flowed, and I treated it like a job." -  N., Australia

Week Three

Put Your Plan Into Action

Design and develop your personal plan and learn how to tell your professional story. Become a social leader, using all the arsenal within your reach to amplify and reinforce your message. Learn how to effectively use LinkedIn and other platforms for professional purposes and to grow your executive presence:

  • Develop your personal story and pitch of where you want to go next.
  • Leverage from LinkedIn and other platforms to reinforce your professionalism.
  • Become a social leader, learning to use social media to your advantage, adopting a style and presence that suits your needs.

"When I joined the group coaching, I wasn’t looking for work. I feel like I’m in the right job right now, but I plan to start looking into the new year. Since working with you, I have a better idea of where I want to go in the future and how to get there. It took me a few weeks into the program to reach a major milestone. Something clicked, and I could see how I was showing up to prospective employers, and it was not what I wanted to portray. Since then, I’ve worked on positioning myself in a different light. I may still go back to some of the modules in the long run, and it’s good to know it’s there when I need it." - T., Australia

Week Four

Understand Recruitment & Selection

Understand the inner works of recruitment and selection. Create master documents and templates to simplify your job search and networking:

  • Understand the selection process, how to read between the lines, and navigate the job market
  • Learn to develop a winning job application by developing essential market research techniques before sending your application
  • Create your master templates: Resume, Cover Letter, etc.. to make applying for that special job at the last minute a breeze.

"Renata is the leading job hunting expert in this country, quite possibly the world. The seven-week program she designed is outstanding. If you are registered to do the program, you are in very good hands indeed." - Geoff Slade, Executive Chairman of the Slade Group and Transearch Australia International

Week Five

Job Applications & Networking

Understand the importance of applying for jobs and networking at the same time.  Learn to write great introduction emails and messages, and get to know recruiters and hiring managers. Network effortlessly and gracefully. Create and develop your personal style and narrative:

  • Introductions do's and don't's: what to do and not do when connecting with recruiters, employers, referees, and mentors
  • Networking strategies to approach people you don't know.
  • Being comfortable with your pitch and be crystal clear in communicating your value to the organization. 

"[My manager] found my application by far the most professional application he had seen... I have now been invited on Tuesday for a one-hour session by [Manager] to put a formal structure to my learning plan and ideas that we have been discussing. ”

- A., Australia

Week Six

Nail Job Interviews

Learn strategies to enable you to stay ready to be contacted and interviewed at any time. Understand the importance of "interview day" planning and learn techniques to boost your performance under pressure:

  • Understand the importance of being on call and ready to be contacted.
  • Discover how the previous modules have already prepared you to be ready to be interviewed.
  • Interview day planning, techniques, and practice sessions.

"I absolutely would not have got to this point without your help, it was the best decision I ever made. Now I have more confidence with my CV and LinkedIn profile. Also, your fantastic guidance and clear methodology on all the important steps in the job-hunting process, such as, how to reach out to contacts and recruiters were extremely helpful and I must thank you for highlighting those areas that I needed improvement. It really has been an absolute pleasure to get to know you and talk with you on a regular basis."

- Louise, Asia

Week seven

Boosting Your Resilience & Confidence

Understanding and acknowledging that job hunting is a competitive experience and requires resilience building.

  • Learn to use your experience to understand patterns and find your feedback for improvement and tweaking:
  • Find outlets for your talents to shine during your job search.
  • Techniques to feel positive and confident under stress.

"I don’t know where I would be if I didn’t find you. I’d probably still be unemployed. Job hunting is so emotional. Those months were the hardest months I’ve ever had, and it’s all in your mind. And you feel so alone, so I think the value in group coaching is that I’m not by myself. Especially a lot of people felt isolated because of covid. Having that shared experience with other people was helpful." - R., Australia

I'm Your Coach, Renata Bernarde.

I am a former CEO and senior executive, now dedicated to helping professionals succeed in advancing their careers. Over time, I realized that many professionals don't know how recruitment and selection work, which negatively impacts their career progression. So I decided I wanted to fix that.

I have successfully coached C-level executives, managers, and professionals to achieve the best outcomes in their immediate job hunting, as well as plan their careers for the long run. My podcast - The Job Hunting Podcast - is a 5-star rated show listened to by thousands of professionals in over 100 countries.

In addition to my coaching practice and podcast show, I teach career planning and design at Monash University. I'm also an Honorary Enterprise Fellow at the University of Melbourne and a Member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. I've been featured in LinkedIn News and Yahoo Business, and I'm a regular guest at the Australian news channel Ticker TV. I have spoken at several events organized by Lean In Melbourne, Governance Institute of Australia, the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, the Institute of Managers and Leaders Australia and New Zealand, Slade Group, and Watermark Search International.

I live in Melbourne, Australia, with my husband, Andre. We are empty nesters, and we love spending time with our two sons and their partners. I am obsessed with coffee, like most Melburnians, and I'm pretty sure I can speak underwater!

Renata Bernarde, Career Coach

"You’re the reason I’ve got back into work!"

"I was in a dark hole before doing your course. I had so much self-doubt because of the bullying that went on in the place. I got my confidence back from you. I was searching, and I really needed someone to say I’m ok and that I still got it, and you did that for me, so thank you.

I enjoyed the group because I liked getting other’s feedback, and I was able to meet people who support me even post the group session, and we are now all connected. I also enjoyed being able to help others as well. And they all helped by just being there and knowing it’s not just me.

I loved the people you got in to present; that was so good! It was very relevant. At first, I thought twice a week was too much, but I was looking forward to it towards the end."

K. is a senior finance director. She attended the program in February 2021 and got a job offer in April 2021.
