The Job Hunting Podcast

The Job Hunting Podcast

This is a podcast for well-informed job hunters and career enthusiasts. 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 :). Please subscribe, leave me a rating, write a review, and let the people you care about know this podcast exists! You can also learn more about me and my coaching services on www.renatabernarde.com. Do you want me to be a guest on your podcast? Speak at your event? Coach you? Reach out via email at rb@renatabernarde.com, and let's make it happen!

    Coaching is an excellent investment, but it will only work if you incorporate it into your life. With coaching comes also a new routine to a) sustain your career, b) ensure you progress towards your goals, and c) keep the opportunities coming to you in the long term.

    On the other hand, career coaching helps professionals understand how to optimize their time. There's more focus on the tasks needed to be done to enable your care...

    I am always giving my clients tips on how to work online. Here are the key complaints I hear from clients and friends:

  • It's hard to connect with people
  • It's hard to keep productive
  • It's lonely, and 
  • There's a tendency to work too much
  • But, working online is now the main aspect of white-collar working life. Many office workers who, pre-pandemic, had to commute to work now can work remotely. Even if they go back to the o...

    Engaging a career coach is considered by many professionals a difficult to make. They can't be sure of the results, and the investment is substantial, especially if you're between jobs and not earning a paycheck. It seems counterintuitive to spend money at the precise time when you need to be saving it.

    For me, working with a coach was always a no-brainer. I knew what I didn't know, and I was hungry to advance faster in...

    I’ve been thinking of doing an episode about sabbatical for a long time. I tried inviting guests, but no one felt comfortable coming out publicly to talk about their experience. This made me even more interested in the whole concept of what these professionals were calling a sabbatical, what it actually was, and why it's still a taboo to take time off from a long career to do whatever else one wants to do or just recover from b...
