Kim Shaw has been helping people manage their careers successfully for over 13 years within a range of organisations including community, state government, universities, corporate, and her own business.
In addition to being a fully qualified and accredited Career Counsellor with a Masters Degree in Career Development, Kim has accumulated a wealth of ‘real life’ knowledge from her previous experience in the accounting field with a range of mining and resource companies and in the finance industry.
Her clients have included executives, migrants, refugees, international students, adults in career change, Indigenous, youth, individuals with disabilities or severe injury, and mental health.
Current Professional memberships include the Career Development Association of Australia (CDAA), the National Association of Graduate Career Advisory Services (NAGCAS), and Career Industry Council of Australia (CICA).
During this varied experience, Kim noted the issues faced by people, particularly new migrants and international students, seeking work and the lack of specialised career and job search coaching services available to these groups.
Kim created Career Potential Australia in 2013 to help close the gap between the great skills coming into the country and the employers seeking to fill skilled roles.
“I believe that, with the right skills and help, everyone can reach their full potential, anywhere.”
