I was extremely impressed at the in-depth knowledge of my industry and the understanding of how my skills would fit the role I was applying for. I was astounded at how proffesional and prompt Mary was a delivering my CV at such short notice. Needless to say the result was that from using Sli Nua’s service I got the job. I highly recommend Sli Nua for all the services they provide” – Michael Quinlivan, Kilkenny.
“I used the services of Mary O’Brien-Killeen at Sli Nua Careers and found the service extremely useful. It allowed me to practice in depth for upcoming Skype and in-person interviews. When I began the training with Mary, I was extremely rusty in describing my key skills and experience to prove what I could bring to a prospective employer. Mary has an ability to get to the nub of the issue very quickly. She tells it as it is and I appreciated that. Listening to the recorded feedback from the training sessions afterwards was a real wake-up call. The general guidance tips and training given, plus the specific Skype guidance tips and training, has made me bullet proof and interview match-fit. I am currently amongst finalists for the job I am after but no matter what happens next I have put interview worry well and truly to bed. I would recommend these services to anyone worried about their potential interview performance” – Bernie Walsh, Nephros Ltd, Dublin.
“Mark McDonald of Slí Nua Careers offered a service that was second to none in my opinion. I have never come across someone who is so totally dedicated to what they do and works so hard to achieve the goals of their client. There was more than one occasion that he was on the phone to me at 10 o’clock on a Sunday night discussing job search strategy, applications or the next day’s interview such was his dedication.
Mark, I felt, as well as being a total gentleman was at all times completely on my side and believed in me and my abilities even when I was having trouble seeing myself as the highly valuable potential employee that I was. Relentlessly positive, he stuck with me and helped me to achieve my goals even when I was trying to convince him that I maybe wasn’t worth all the work that he was doing.
He kept the faith when I had lost it, built my confidence and was totally innovative and eye-opening in his approach to solutions to my recruitment problems. He also really understood where I was emotionally in my job search and constantly reassured me and helped me to identify my strengths as well as setting me targets and goals to achieve.
The interview training was totally brilliant, breaking the job description down into chunks and going through it piece by piece, recording it, with his objective advice and pointers and emailing it to me gave me the opportunity to really prepare for the interview well in advance giving me the confidence to know that I was extremely well prepared, calm and ready and that I was going to nail that interview and get that job!
I have now successfully secured a great job, in no small part to the efforts of Mark and Sli Nua and would not hesitate to recommend him, and them to anyone who is stuck in a rut employment wise, if you need a CV review, interview training or some advice about the way forward I think you should give them a ring” – Chris Malendewicz, Dublin (winner of our special promotion with Today FM, more HERE)

I found Deirdre May to be professional and creative and I would highly recommend – and have done – this service to my family and friends” – Simon Pollard, Limerick.
“Thanks to Liam I have recently got the job of my dreams! I was recommended to contact Slí Nua Careers when I first made the decision to leave my job which was dragging down my confidence and bringing me down the wrong career track. I really wanted to move into an area which I didn’t necessarily have the typical experience or qualifications for but I knew my personality would be right for the job. Liam really got to know who I was and what I wanted to achieve, in an efficient and timely manner. He managed to present my skill set and personality in the best possible light, while tailoring my CV for the new sector which I was trying to enter. I was always confident that he would respond to my queries rapidly and provide feedback when I needed it. So when the right opportunity arose, my CV was ready to go. I ended up being immediately asked to attend an interview and was successfully accepted for the position. This was actually the first role which I applied for. Other potential employers with whom I met also made a point of complimenting my CV and found it easy to navigate. Not only has my encounter with Liam and Slí Nua resulted in me being offered my ideal job, it has also given me a renewed confidence in my abilities and has been an all round positive experience” – Deirdre O’Flynn, Cork.

“When a position in which I was interested was advertised, I decided to apply for it. My biggest challenge was to do up my CV. While I had the “bones” of one done, I knew it did not reflect the range of experience I had. I found Elizabeth’s details on the web and sent her an email late one evening. Within half an hour, I received a call from Elizabeth, when she explained the services she could offer me. She showed a genuine interest in my career and experience. We arranged an appointment, where I brought her my draft attempt of my CV. Returning a week later, it was transformed with logical headings, very well articulated and extremely well structured. Two drafts later, the final product was outstanding. Elizabeth worked to deadlines, and with Christmas approaching, she delivered the goods on time. She even met with me in a local hotel to explain the nuances of my CV. For the services she provided, her rates were very reasonable. So if you are considering spending time working on your CV, I suggest that you pick up the phone or email to Elizabeth, make an appointment to meet with her and you will not be disappointed. You can then celebrate the success of having a true professional design your CV” – Kevin Connaire, Stillorgan, Dublin.
