It is based on over 5 years of research and contains an extensive database of more than 500 careers and courses. Duration: Approx 20 minutes

See a Sample Report!

b) Career Personality Profiler

The Career Personality Profiler is based on the theory of psychological types described by Swiss psychiatrist C.G Jung and Isabel Myers. It assesses four aspects of your personality based on the following scales: Informer-Reflector, Producer-Creator, Analyser-Helper and Planner-Adapter. Duration: Approx 10 minutes

During your consultation, you will:

  • Discover the careers that best suit your interests, values and personality

Hi Ellen,
I just wanted to write and say thanks for our session yesterday. I was really inspired and it was really helpful to talk through everything with you! The process we went through made everything seem simple and clear-cut. In hindsight, looking at all the job advertisements for jobs that I didn’t want to do, was great. The process really highlighted my areas of interest very clearly. I’m looking forward to starting on my action plan! Heartfelt thanks,
T Bawden-Smith

I had a career consultation with you in April and just wanted to thank you for all your help and advice. I have a fairly diverse background so I can imagine how that would have presented you with a unique challenge. In addition, I always knew I had a keen interest in people and trying to understand what motivates people. I found your session particularly useful as you really helped me understand how my values linked with the potential right jobs for me and subsequently encouraged me to apply for a role that I would never have thought of applying for before. As a result of going through the application process, my profile within my existing company has been lifted significantly. Thank you so much! I would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone who wants a career consultation.
Kellie, Brisbane

Hi Ellen,
Thank you for your time yesterday. It was a fantastic consultation and I would gladly recommend your services to others. I really enjoyed speaking with you, and your open and down to earth approach put me right at ease. Thank you once again. Kind Regards,

After 15 years in the workforce, and working in a variety of jobs in this time, I was unsure about what career direction I wanted to follow. Other than talking to close family and friends, I felt the need to seek some independent advice. That is when I found the Katie Roberts Career Consulting website where I was referred to Jackie Marsterson. The process commenced by completing a career interest and personality profiler online. After meeting with Jackie I was taken aback by the accuracy of the results and gained a lot of valuable information from indepth discussions in relation to these results. I found the information and resources Jackie provided me with to be very helpful and have been referring back to the resources quite regularly. As a result of attending the consultation and meeting with Jackie, it has encouraged me to pursue further study, and I have actually enrolled to commence tertiary studies again this year. I have also been impressed by the after consultation service Jackie has provided me with on resume and cover letter writing. Overall I believe it was a wise decision to gain independent advice in this area and thank Jackie for her assistance.
M Smitten

Dear Katie,
My consultation with Ellen Rodger was extremely productive and she was professional and helpful. The whole process was polished, insightful and so easy to use. Thank you so much for this outstanding service.
L Hughes

Hi Jackie
I had a career consultation with you in July last year. I wanted to email you to say thank you for all your help and advice. I found the session extremely helpful and have had great success in my career path since. I have enrolled to do a Masters in Human Resource Management at Monash, which starts in a few weeks. I have also started working in an HR Assistant role. I love my new job and am really excited about starting my course. It's great to finally have some direction in my career. I just wanted to let you know how great everything has been since I saw you, and how beneficial your advice was. I would strongly recommend a career counsellor to anyone who is unsure of what they want to do. Thank you very much for your wonderful help.
C Griffin, Melbourne

My son Will is a highly motivated Year 12 student who had no idea of what he wanted to do after school. After completing some on-line assessments and discussion with Helene, she was able to match his interests and passions with jobs. She gave him great advice on various courses and pathways. Will found the session very helpful and is now even more focused as he knows exactly why he is working so hard!
Kerry, Greenwich

Dear Suzie
Thanks SO much. It's spooky that the tests and your guidance were so spot on and really reinforced what was lurking in the back of Andrew's mind (and ours) - fantastic! Very much appreciated as he can now tackle the year ahead with focus rather than wasting time and energy worrying about his direction.
Lynn and Andrew, Sydney

Hi Ellen,
I just wanted to let you know my exciting news - I have been offered a new job as a Marketing Coordinator! I'm very excited! Thank you so much for your help and guidance. You helped me to re-gain my confidence and get back out there and find a role that will 're-establish my career in marketing'. Your assistance has been invaluable and I am very grateful.

Hi Suzie
Guess what? I did an HTML course at the community college as you suggested, put a mission statement on my CV and applied for some junior web positions. Within a week I was offered a position as a media/web assistant. The company will offer training and resources for me to train in my spare time. I couldn't have done it without you. The test and consultation really helped to clarify things for me.

Hi Jane,
Thank you so much for today! You are so helpful. If only I saw you sooner I might have actually had a career by now. You were spot on! Everything just seems so much clearer. I feel a lot more confident about choosing a career path now whereas before, I was so confused. I'm going to recommend you to everyone who is in the same boat as me.
Sera, Brisbane

To whom it may concern;
I'm just writing a quick email to complement Ellen Rodger on her service. I undertook a full career counselling consultation as well as her professional resume service and was very impressed by both. Being young and in a critical time in my life in terms of career choice, Ellen helped bring more clarity. She conducted herself in a very professional manner and my newly revised resume couldn't have been worded any better! Considering I am a perfectionist and quite critical most of the time I think that Ellen is a valuable asset to your company. Many thanks,
John, Sydney

Hi Katie,
I wanted to take the opportunity to give you some feedback on Suzie. We had a phone consultation on Saturday and I must say she was an absolute delight. She had a warming personality, met me in my world, listened to my perspective and offered well reasoned and researched advice. She was encouraging, specific, professional and polished. The call exceeded my expectations in terms of outcomes, particularly in regard to university options. I also liked the different approach to MBTI with the values piece and the list of tasks and careers that suit my personality type. It served to reinforce that I am in the right job and gave me insight into why that is. Suzie is a great ambassador for your brand and I would have no hesitation to recommend her to others in our organisation. I am very pleased that I utilised your service and happy with the results.

Kind Regards,

Hi Debbie
The phone consultation was fantastic. Suzie did a brilliant job. I'm sure I'm heading in the right direction now. Thank you Career Consultants for your professional help.
B Crisp

Hi Katie
I'd just like to express my thanks to Drew Clark who in one meeting appears to have turned my son's life around. To have this ability I believe takes very special qualities and Drew lives up to his profile of "intuitive expertise" and "skill and rapport with people". Drew has been able to motivate our son beyond anything we have seen since he left school. Our son has been floundering in connection with job commitment ever since he left school (he will be 30 this year) and when he approached us to support him in visiting one of your staff, we were somewhat loath to do so. We hope that in the future we will have the opportunity of recommending Drew.
Lynne, Sydney

Dear Helen,
Both my father and I greatly appreciate the help you have given me and I thank you for the follow up information. Thank you for your guidance and I will not hesitate to contact you in the future or refer you to anyone I come across.
Aaron, Perth

Dear Ellen,
Thank you so much for meeting with me and for going through my options. It was such an absolute pleasure to meet with you and to discuss my career to date. With your help, my eyes were definitely open to new possibilities and to new careers I could hardly imagine for myself! After amending my CV and cover letter, and really putting in extra effort when applying, I successfully gained an interview (funnily enough, it was with the very first organisation that you handed to me at our session!). I received very happy news yesterday that I have the job! I'm so excited and thankful for the opportunity, and it all came about through meeting with you. Thank you so much for what you have done for me, and I'm very happy to share this wonderful news with you!
Daisy, Sydney

Dear Catriona,
Discussing my options with you was invaluable and I feel better about a number of aspects of my career/life. Having my plan and some definitive ideas about what I'm good at is really practical - I have some avenues to explore now! I very much appreciate your time, advice and help. Kind Regards,
Rebecca, Canberra

Hi Catriona
Just short note to let you know how I am going following our career counselling session. I’ve implemented our transition plan with my Manager and the HR team at work. I requested, was offered and took a VR and have been progressing a business plan to become an Executive coach since. After 20 years in the APS I am no longer a public servant and have been attending various information evenings with colleges around Australia on the best type of training to help me establish my own Canberra-based business. It’s all very exciting and just thought you would like to know what I did with your advice – I took it and can’t thank you enough. Best wishes,
Anita, Canberra

Dear Debbie,
I have just had my careers counselling session with Ellen Rodger in Newtown and I have to say I cannot be more pleased and happy with speaking to Ellen. The time before contacting your company has both been a very stressful and confusing time for me. However, your services did not disappoint! Ellen was simply amazing, and I was blown away at the accuracy of the results for the online assessments. I am now confident that I will be making the right choices for me and will ensure that if I need further guidance down the track, I will not hesitate in returning for another consultation in a few years time with Ellen. A big thanks also to you for answering my many enquiries, you certainly helped me feel at ease. Greatly appreciate everything, and am recommending your services to the many stressed friends and family members of mine who too need a bit of direction.

Thank you for the ‘light bulb’ moments during our meeting tonight.  Of particular note for me was why I have ‘drifted’ towards strangely different ‘pursuits’ outside work. Thanks again.
Marie, Perth

Hi Helen,

After our brief chat today I felt inspired and happy with the step by step approach. It all made sense. Thanks for your advice. I'm looking forward to following my path. I know I'm on the right one finally. Will be in contact in the future. Thank you and Katie for this wonderful service. Sometimes we all need a little direction in life.

Melissa, Perth

I am a recent graduate, currently working full time in the corporate world. After working for past 9 months, I felt a deep sense of dissatisfaction with my job. It was then that I decided to see Suzie for career counselling. I found the first session immensely resourceful! From the psychometric and personality tests, I was able to gain a greater understanding of the jobs that were suited towards my personality. On top of this, Suzie was very patient, kind and attentive. After the session, I felt a greater sense of direction for my career and I am now on my way to becoming a primary school teacher. Suzie is also someone who goes "above and beyond" for you as she was able to give me some resume advice, helpful website links and some contacts in her own world working in my desired profession. Ultimately, I would highly recommend Suzie to anyone seeking career guidance! Thank you so much!!!!

J.Lee Sydney

Hi Drew,

I just wanted to give you an update as I have some news. After such a great session with you (and not being one to sit back and wait for things to happen) I immediately applied for a great job and I have been successful! Next step is applying for uni so all in all its been amazing! I really can't thank you enough.


I have been involved in a very draining job. I always had a vision in my head, however, I had no idea how to get there. With a demanding job and long hours, i could not do much research.
I needed help and was referred to Katie Roberts' site. I got in contact with Debbie whom was very helpful and provided great customer service. I was then referred to Ellen Rodger (Career Counsellor) whom listened to me and absolutely helped me by writing a plan to reach my goal with options that I did not even know existed!

Muna, Sydney

Hi Catriona,

I just wanted to let you know that I did decide on a new career path. I decided to study a Diploma in Fitness so that I hopefully can eventually work with at risk clients as a Personal Trainer. So far I'm really enjoying the course and I even feel much happier about work because I have another focus. It's also helping to keep me fit and healthy which is a huge bonus. Thanks so much for your help. I hope you don't mind but I have recommended you to a couple of friends in a similiar situation. All the best,

Dear Catriona,

I was searching for words that could describe my happiness about your service and how confident I became when I knew exactly what I should do in the next 5-10 years of my life. I know what to do now and which companies to consider when searching for my dream job that fits my personality along with the workplace that is the best fit for me. I appreciate you reading all my information including my resume and overall experience and I'm blessed about the information I got that will enable me to make decisions with confidence when pursuing my next career step. The career personality report was amazing and the interview was very helpful and I am ready now to move forward. Thank you for being so helpful and patient receiving my inquiries, overall the experience was wonderful. I wish you all the success in your life and all the best to the Katie Roberts team.



Wow what a fantastic email to receive! Thank you so much for that. You have helped me tremendously. My husband mentioned this morning that I seemed much "lighter" in myself and I do feel like the fog has cleared.

It was really nice to meet you last week, I really appreciated the detailed follow up email you sent me. Thank you for your time, it has helped me clarify so many things in my mind and given me a strong direction to head in. Thanks again for all your help.

Thank you for the advice you provided me, and for taking the extra time as you did to assist me.  The telephone session was exceptionally beneficial and informative and I gained a great deal of insight about myself.

Dear Jane

I am writing to say thank you so much for your help with my son. He had an idea as to what he liked but struggled to know what to do. Seeing you has helped him so much. He has been accepted into a Bachelor of Exercise and Health Science. He is very comfortable and settled in his thinking - it is so nice to see. I am so glad I met you and you were able to guide him in the right direction. As a mother, I am so relieved and enjoy seeing my son happy and content with his goals and achievements. Thank you so much.

The session met my expectations, and it really surprised me too. It gave me a good direction for my future career, and helped me get a clear direction into what path to take. I would recommend this service to any of my friends and family who need help. It is the best career consultation I have ever experienced. EVER! :)

Thank you. I learnt a great deal about how to move forward in my life, and I have a lot to think about. I could not wipe the smile off my face going home last night…

Thanks so much. My visit to you has helped me get back some of my enthusiasm for job hunting and goal setting (which I had let slip, big time)……I’m back…;-) I'm now feeling more positive and more confident.

"I found my consultation with Jackie an extremely positive and enlightening experience. Being from a creative background, I initially assumed that career counselling was only for those in a mainstream corporate environment but found Jackie understood and encouraged those wishing to take a path less travelled."

Hi Helen,

Thanks so much for all the information and guidance. It was exactly what I needed. I'm so impressed with the results. I'm going to pass on your details to my friend who is in the same position that I was.

Hi Amber,

I found yesterday's session with you so helpful. Prior to the appointment with you, I wasn't sure what to expect and what, if anything, I would get out of it. As the session went on I felt more and more relaxed and found myself being more honest with you and myself than I have been for a long time. I believe that this was due to your well placed questions and your warm, mentoring, professional approach. I feel like I found my mojo yesterday and I have a very clear idea of where to focus my energy on my future career and I know exactly what I want to do. I know that this is a process, but you have helped me figure out what I want and given me a clear direction for the future. I feel motivated, focused and energised. I can't thank you enough and I will let you know at the end of my journey what has happened.

Warm Regards,

Hi Judith,

I spoke with Elise after our session with you and she is feeling a lot more settled about her career path now. It's a very difficult thing to work through especially at 14 but I really think you nailed it on the head. It's great to put her mind at ease regarding her next steps, now she can put that energy into actually moving forward. Thanks again for your insights.

Kind regards

From the moment I spoke to Leah on the phone, I felt comfortable. Leah has a beautiful nature and really loves what she does. She cares about her clients and makes them feel confident and relaxed in what can be a daunting situation. She helped me clarify my future opportunities and see things in a positive light! I would highly recommend seeing Leah.
