I'm ruby

I'm here to help you find a career full of purpose.


Do you have a sudden urge to get your career back on track?  Perhaps it's finding your first job, a redundancy, a promotion, a career change, a cross roads that's brought you here today...

… or perhaps life has happened and it’s forced you to rethink what’s really valuable to you. 


Let's get ultra clear on

  • Your career happiness levels
  • Why you're not getting that job, that promotion, that step up that you deserve
  • Your mindset and your fears
  • Why you feel unfulfilled in your career and S-T-U-C-K

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

We will not be limited, confined, constrained or restrained in our belief that work can bring HAPPINESS, fun and help you achieve the LIFESTYLE of your dreams.


A little more from me ...



After spending more than 10 years in the recruitment industry, from large corporates to start ups, graduates to CEO's, I realised that even the best of us needs support from time to time.  

I was constantly asked to give advice (let's not mention the numerous coffees to 'pick my brain') so from this, I founded The Careers Emporium.

Today, I get to work with you to help you find joy in your career they way I have

If you've come this far, then why not say hello. I'd love to hear your story and work with you on finding purpose in your career.

Also consider joining the private facebook group: Own Your Hustle where I post daily inspiration to keep you on track to owning your career! 


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 (your own business or working with an amazing employer) that you completely believe in
  • You feel worthy and are recognised for your work
  • You have the flexibility, autonomy and recognition you’ve been looking for
  • You feel inspired and full of purpose each and every day


Guess what?
It’s not some sort of shiny mirage that’s unattainable, it’s REAL, and I’d love to show you how it's done.


What Clients Say

"The videos were enjoyable to watch - full of great advice, tips, and insights. I was also impressed by her passion, dedication, and knowledge on the subject matter. I was so impressed, I engage her services to help me out.
Ruby not only transformed my very average looking CV and LinkedIn profile into something I am very proud of, she also provided one of the best cover letters I have ever seen. Thanks Ruby for all your efforts, hard work and professionalism – I was a joy to have worked with you. So, if you need a little guidance or major overhaul of your CV, LinkedIn profile or cover letter, I would highly recommend Ruby." Mary, Marketing and Communication
"Ruby was fantastic in her approach and communication ! She is friendly, easy to talk to and provided me with her personal guidance on how my resume could be improved to reflect my key strengths. Importantly, she was with the process all the way and her knowledge and experience was evident in the final output !
I was so impressed with her that I asked her to assist me with my resume, LinkedIn and cover letter and trust me, her cover letter is one that will catch a recruiter's eye. Certainly highly recommended and a big thank you to her!!!" Chiara, Finance
"It is with pleasure that I can recommend Ruby for her amazing facelift on my CV and creation of a cover letter.It turns out applying for a role at your dream company is nerve-wracking, but right from our first conversation, Ruby made me feel at ease and confident with what I have to offer.
She really took the time to get to know me, read my rambling emails, and turn it all into something coherent and professional. Thank you Ruby!!" Carly, Behavioural Therapist
"I can’t thank Ruby  enough for her help in writing my CV. I haven’t had to apply for jobs for almost 5 years so I was a little unsure as to where to start. I am so happy with the result and now feel confident back in the job market. It felt 1:1 and very personalised." Audrey, Creative Industry
"My experience with The Careers Emporium has been influential and motivating. Ruby inspires you with your inner belief that you can achieve more with your work, lifestyle and career. She creates a great possibility that anything is achievable that if you put your mind into it. So if you need help to improve your resume Ruby does a great job to make it great."  Travis Lee, Hospitality


"I found Ruby to be so passionate about her work and I was intrigued with her approach that I just had to email her when I saw her website and LinkedIn profile. Ruby was so prompt and supportive during my consultation with her and I loved the outcome. Most importantly it's the openness and continuous support that I found to be a stand out. Thanks again Ruby, I would recommend you to everyone who may need that extra guidance especially in changing industries." Emillia, Banking Professional/NFP Sector
"My experience with The Careers Emporium and with Ruby was amazing. She is very professional and she treated me as a friend, rather than as another number. She took the time to get to know me, so she could give the best advice and guide me to the path that suits my personality and values. It was really lovely working with Ruby and highly recommend her services as she gives her best self. I've got my confidence back because Ruby believed in me so I could make more stable steps for my next career move! Cant thank her enough for the time and effort! Keep up the good work!" - Georgia, Finance and Office Management, August 2017

"When I met with Ruby I was feeling lost in my career and like I had come to a fork in the road not knowing which way to go. After having a great chat about my career and my passions Ruby was able to zone in on what makes me tick. She came up with an action plan and before I knew it I have a plan in place with a smashing new resume and LinkedIn to get me to where I have always wanted to go but didn't know how. I feel very motivated and enthusiastic going through this process with Ruby and can always rely on her. I mean, who sends her 5 emails in one day and gets a reply to each one the same day... I did! I think that speaks so highly of Ruby's work ethic and her relationships with each and every person she gets in touch with. Together we are on a mission to find me that dream role and I have no doubt that in the near future I will look back and go WOW... if it wasn't for the kick up the butt by Ruby I might still be on the same discouraging path I was on. Ruby you are a superstar and thank you!" Jay Van Tonder, HR

The Careers Emporium
I am so fortunate to have stumbled across Ruby via a LinkedIn connection, and after viewing her Careers Emporium website I was certain Ruby was the one I needed to modernise my boring resume and cover letter. That decision is paying off. So far I have applied for 3 jobs with the new documents resulting in 3 interviews. Ruby, I can't thank you enough for your advice and efforts in putting some spark in my old documents. I highly recommend Ruby to anyone who is contemplating changing their resume.
