Why is the ACMA program better than other career services providers?
ACMA has developed the most advanced career management "Career Talk" technology platform in the Asia Pacific Region. This interface enables a convenient and immediate collaborative workspace for one on one interaction, real-time monitoring and unrivalled personalised coaching support between the client and career consultant 7 days per week (any time/anywhere)…computer, tablet or smartphone.
The ACMA program is a highly structured and unique case management process built around the following elements:
RESEARCH & ANALYSIS
The result is an individually tailored, highly effective and proven program solely focused on each client’s personal needs, career objectives and desired outcomes.
“Career management and development by design…not chance”
How does ACMA maintain its expertise and workforce knowledge?
We conduct continuous employment market research and intelligence gathering across all states and occupations, including both the private and public sectors.
Employment and industry trends, structural changes and employment law developments, plus social issues in the workplace are all tracked and quickly related to our client's needs.
Geo-political changes, plus micro and macroeconomic movements are constantly analysed to identify growth potential and job opportunities or to alert our client's to contracting business sectors to avoid.
Our career consultants continually attend courses and complete ongoing professional development study to keep abreast of the latest career counselling trends in Australia and overseas.
"This research and knowledge base is our client's major asset"

We service all Australian states, capital cities, regional areas, remote regions and New Zealand. Our exclusive online career management "Career Talk" systems enable us to deliver high-quality career management services to anyone, anywhere and at any time.
Is your service personalised?
It certainly is personalised. Clients are managed in a "1 on 1" relationship with their very own career management consultant who supports them throughout the program.
Clients are never subjected to different consultants when they need assistance, with their consultant being available to them 7 days per week, including after hours and weekends.
ACMA has developed "state of the art" communication systems connecting clients (on multiple levels) directly to their personal career management consultant.
Do you use a "cookie-cutter" method or are the programs designed around each person's needs?
The first step we initiate with any new client is to have them assessed via our Module 1 Assessment Workbook, which is completed online and at the client's own pace.
The completed Module 1 Assessments are then reviewed and the program design is finalised around the individual needs and requirements as revealed in the assessment process.
NO TWO CLIENT ASSIGNMENTS ARE THE SAME...
