Wen Hou

Patent Engineer at King & Wood Mallesons

Tony assisted me, an immigrant, to land my dream job in Australia, for which I am really appreciative. I mainly used the mock interview service and would recommend it to anyone who is too nervous to talk properly at an interview as I was. Tony has profound knowledge regarding interview skills, potential interview questions and critical mind-sets towards any interview. In addition, he also passed to me tips about Australian culture, which I found really helpful. What impressed me most, however, is how dedicated Tony is to his clients. He is really responsive and no matter how late I notify him of an upcoming interview, he would try to fit our meeting into his schedule. Thank you indeed Tony! I made the right decision to choose you as my career coach.

Tony is an extremely professional career coach who has been assisting me with career transition/step up process into management career. Tony is always there for wise advice and is a great sounding board and he has helped me to make difficult career decisions. Tony never imposes anything but rather coaches me to clarify my positions and make my own decisions and is always supportive. in order to reach career goals and to remain motivated, and not losing sight of a big picuture, especially when you encounter challenging situations, can be extremely difficult. it is often not appropriate to discuss matters with colleagues and you can feel lost and isolated. you may have personal confidante but tgey may not be able to provide you with objective perspective ir may not know the industry you work in well enough to provide sound advice. Having Tony as my mentor has provided me with great reassurance and support when needed, and sometimes blatant truth I needed to hear. One of the best things about having Tony as a mentor is that he is always objective, yet always concerned with what is in MY best interest. I am sure that I will be able to achieve my long term career goals with him by my side. I would highly recommend Tony and his services including career management tools which helps understand own characteristics, strength and weaknesses. I would like to thank Tony for his ongoing support. It has been wonderful. Regards Mio Seamder Nurse Manager

Having run my own businesses for 20 years, and being completely unfamiliar with modern-day methods for career transition, I found that the opportunity to learn from Tony Crosby at ACMA was a game-changer. His measured, patient and knowledgeable approach to the process of changing careers helped me to manage successfully what could have been a very daunting process. He was always accessible, his approach was professional and understanding, and his teaching strategies were well-thought out and effective. He helped me understand and manage the work involved in career planning, putting guidelines and disciplines in place, and providing coaching through the practical and emotional changes. The resources he provided through ACMA were relevant and timely, and delivered in bite-sized chunks of information, at the appropriate time in the process. I am very grateful to ACMA for the opportunity of working with Tony, and am certain that he was instrumental in my successful career transition - I highly recommend him to anyone at a career crossroads.

Filiz Kingsley

Administration Officer St. John Of God Accord

Tony's guidance and support was invaluable to me after being made redundant. Having spent nearly 20 years with the same company, looking for a new job seemed a daunting task. Tony was a constant support, helping navigate me through an unfamiliar job search environment. He kept me focused when self doubt crept in and gave me the tools and confidence to apply for jobs. Armed with the advice Tony gave me, I was able to get through my first interview in 2 decades, and was fortunate to land the job. Even after 4 months in the job he still checks in on me to see how I'm going, offering guidance if I need it. I am so grateful for Tony's support and would highly recommend his service to anyone.

Mark Ryan

Strategic media, communications and digital professional - Senior Manager (Engagement) at Mater Foundation

Strategic media, communications and digital professional

Tony is a very thoughtful, considerate and supportive career consultant who I would highly recommend to people needing to take a step back to review where their work life is heading.

After coming out of a rollercoaster ride of a work experience with a previous employer, Tony was quickly able to get me to refocus on what I had to do to move forward. He encouraged me not to pigeonhole myself, which was vital to my career progression, and understanding what I had to offer as a human being.

His online tools and modules are simple to use, but effective. It is, however, the one-on-one conversations where Tony is able to put his years of experience in to clear and concise messages.

I believe he would make an impact on anyone he crosses paths with.

Matthew Gray

Business Line Manager - Industrial Air at Atlas Copco

I had the pleasure of working with Tony during a recent career transition. Tony’s tools were thorough, and the purpose of each was often not understood until reviewed in hindsight. Tony’s guidance was invaluable with regards to minimising the depth and duration of the emotional change curve, while Tony’s commitment (at all hours of the day) was above and beyond any reasonable expectation. Please keep up the great work Tony. There are plenty more people out there that need your help!

Masoud Sarjami

Electronics Lead Engineer at Legrand Australia

Electronic Design Engineer at HPM Legrand Australia

I signed my contract with Tony two months before I landed in Australia. I used to underestimate the hardship I had to experience and then ups and downs and boost and tarnish the confidence. However it was not only Tony's technical knowledgw helping me pass through the unmade path, but his specific advice which confirmed the chances I would have and what offers I would have to disregard, kept me on the right track. Nevertheless I might have been a very special case to him, mutual interaction was the secret of building the best road to success. I believe Tony is an expert in leading you to find the best way to see opportunities as they come to you.

Anna Craven

Tony was an excellent resource, in enabling and providing guidance in modifying my search in the recruitment market (after being employed by the same employer for many years). He has a remarkable way of gently nudging clients towards trying new ways of marketing themselves in an increasingly competitive job market.

BEngMech MIEAust, Verification & Validation Engineer - Mechanical Systems

I first hired Tony Crosby in October 2011 and he worked with me to identify my personal and professional strengths and weaknesses, how to improve on my weaknesses and leverage my strengths. Tony also helped me to understand the value of networking and maintaining a professional network in order to find job opportunities as well as staying in touch with professional and personal contacts. Initially, I expected to obtain employment within 6 months. However, by using his innovative networking and job finding techniques, it took just 2 months to find my ideal work opportunity, obtain an interview and finally be offered an ongoing role with one of my preferred employers.

Throughout the whole experience, from meeting him to being counselled in career management, I found Tony to be very caring, focussed and determined to assist in any way he could in my journey to sustainable employment. Therefore, I highly recommend Tony Crosby as a Career Management Consultant.

Ashwin Joshi

Senior Claims Consultant at Allianz Australia Limited

I came to know about Tony and His Career Management Company when I was completely frustrated about job search here in Australia which almost all migrants faces. I had decided to go back to my country as my insurance qualifications and expertise were not being recognised by australian employers and was getting wasted. I came to know about tony through my internet search and although I was skeptical to join him thinking that he will be another counseller who will just give advises which wont really work. But I decided to take his services as a last chance. Since day one I could see the difference in his 'Modus Operendi'. Suggestions, Information, Guidance given by him worked for me within one and half months time since I took his services and finally I could break the wall on which I was banging my head. I got a decent job in Insurance Company. I would suggest job seeker who has reached dead end in his job search should immediately contact Tony Crosby for further guidance.

When I first visited Tony in his office, I was not sure what to expect. I wanted to change my career, but I was a 'mature' worker without much qualifications + a migrant.

Tony provided me solutions in a professional manner, which was what I needed.
