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, entreprenuers, 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

step up, stand out and make my move.


Hi, I'm Ruby!

After spending more than 10 years in the recruitment industry - from large corporates to start ups, graduates to CEO's - I realised just how many people need help with defining their career path and taking action on it.  I was constantly asked for my honest, authentic and objective career advice. From this, The Careers Emporium was born.


It is my belief that everyone should have control of their own career.

The day of the employer: 

  • controlling your personal brand, and
  • setting you on a structured career path,


It's time for you to stand up and say "I #ownmycareer".

So, if what I'm saying to you speaks to you, I'd love to meet. 

I can help you get clear on your career goals and talk through your dream career path

I have two war cries:

  1. I #ownmycareer
  2. It's time to #lovemondays again

So sign up to The Careers Emporium, it's a resource hub with a global community dedicated to supporting you with your career. You’ll get insider tips and guidance on all things career and how to draw the attention of any recruiter and hiring manager out there.

Whether you’re considering a major career change, need a little boost to get that promotion or pay rise, need help to put a job-winning resume together or ready to launch that side hustle - I'm here to help. Let's do this!


Thanks for your interest in working with me! I’m so glad you're here - it really is the best feeling knowing that I can help add value to your career in some way. For the quickest response, I fill in the contact form below and I'll be in touch shortly :)
