I'm ruby

Together, let's get you back in control so you can say I #ownmycareer


I'm here to help you get ultra clear about what you really want so you can have a career full of passion and purpose.


You're here because...

  • You're not sure if your current career path is for you
  • You can't face another week of the same old 9-5 in your current job
  • You feel unfulfilled in your career and S-T-U-C-K
  • You feel lost and aren't sure if just getting a new job will fix that
  • You feel trapped from following what you really want to be doing because of money or security

Or maybe you've found your calling but...

  • You have no idea where to start looking for jobs
  • Have no idea how to stand out to your dream employer
  • Can't stand the look of your current resume and cover letter
  • Have a LinkedIn account but you're not quite sure how to really use it
  • Know you deserve a promotion or pay raise but aren't sure how to get it
  • You know you need a 'personal brand' but don't know how to go about it
  • Are finally ready to make a big career move but you need a little direction and clarity to get you there

I know what you mean...

... you have a sudden urge to get your dream career back on the track. It may have been that last uninspiring conversation with your employer that made you realise you can do better…

… or perhaps you’ve heard a motivational story on how some started a successful business…

… or perhaps your family situation has changed and it’s forced you to rethink what’s really valuable to you. 

Overall, you know you have ONE LIFE and it’s time to take control back so you can say…



Join THE FUTURE OF TALENT AND THE NEW WORKFORCE where we are free to choose our own career path.

WE ARE NOT RELIANT on employers for income and security. We make this for ourselves.

WE OWN AND DECIDE what our working day entails.

We are not confined by traditional working models. We EMBRACE THE SIDE HUSTLE, THE GIG ECONOMY and know that FAILURE is not a dirty word. 

Employers may disapprove of people who say I #OWNMYCAREER as they can’t control that individual’s career.

We are not interested in the WIN-LOSS relationship where an employer holds all the power.

We will only partner with an employer for a WIN-WIN where we can both share in mutual successes. 

We can be side hustlers, giggers, contractors, moonlighters, digital nomads, remote workers, part timers, employees, business owners, freelancers, sole traders and partners, all at the same time.

We will not be limited, confined, constrained or restrained from CHASING OUR DREAM CAREER.



Create with ambition and freedom

Impact in a positive and fun way

Decide how to hustle and work

Choose my own career path


To #ownmycareer all I have to do is #stepup, #standout and #makemymove.



Say this out loud:

“I own my career,

I will step up,

I will stand out, and

I will make my move”


Hi, I'm Ruby!

After spending more than 10 years in recruitment for large corporates working with Graduates to CEO's, I realised just how many people need help with defining their career path and taking action on it.  The reality is that unless you know a recruiter, it can be almost impossible to get authentic, honest and objective career advice.


For those I met who had worked out their ‘true calling’ in life, so many struggled to nail their job applications, even at top executive level. Resumes, cover letters and LinkedIn profiles just weren't cutting it. I saw a clear need to help people unmask the haze around figuring out their career goals and applying for their dream jobs.

From this, The Careers Emporium was born. A resource hub and global support community dedicated to helping you own your career, and start loving Mondays instead of dreading them. Here, you’ll get insider tips and guidance on what really happens behind the veil and how to draw the attention of any recruiter and hiring manager.

Whether you’re considering a major career change, just need a little boost to get that promotion or pay rise, or you need help to put a job-winning resume together - I'm here to help.


Picture this:

  • You’re ultra clear on what you want your career path to look like, and know what you need to do to keep it on course
  • You’ve landed your dream job at a business you completely believe in and that believes in you.
  • You’re earning what you’re worth and are recognised for your work
  • You have the flexibility, autonomy and recognition you’ve been looking for
  • You feel completely inspired and confident in your career and job


Guess what?
It’s not some sort of shiny mirage that’s unattainable, it’s real, and I’ll show you how.
