Jane Jackson ⭐️ Career Management Coach
One of my greatest pleasures is helping my clients arrive at an 'Aha!' moment in their careers.
By guiding professionals step-by-step through an assessment and coaching process, when the penny drops, they realise what really makes them tick. With this clarity, they are able to make the right career decisions. This is why I created The Careers Academy membership site.
All my clients have made successful career transitions into new roles or different industries, from corporate to entrepreneurship or into social ventures the are passionate about. It's exciting to watch them grow in confidence, and follow their true passion and direction!
If you prefer, I can also support you through one-on-one coaching, tailored just for your specific needs. Book a complimentary career clarity chat and see what we can achieve together!

I've gone through many challenges in my career and over time I have found the secret to creating a career that you really love - one that makes you leap out of bed every morning and excited about what you're about to do! I'm delighted to be able to share this secret with you.
Here's a short video of some of the topics I speak on to provide career inspiration and guidance:
I have two beautiful daughters who are thriving in their careers too (it took time, hard work and determination and, with clear goals, they love what they do!)
My husband spent over 30 years in leadership roles within the media industry in Australia and Singapore and, when he experienced a life changing career transition, he reinvented his career in his 50's. Having a career coach as his wife proved useful, and he leveraged his transferrable skills and passion to help others, into a new career that is totally 'age-proof' (he is now 65 and loves what he does so much I doubt he'll ever want to stop!)
WHAT I LOVE
Work and life harmony is very important to me so I love to play golf (my handicap is rather high, however it's a lot of fun as I'm one of the few people who think that playing golf is a series of Zen moments), dance (especially jazz), yoga, travel and cats. Yes, I love cats! And writing. And lifelong learning.
A LITTLE MORE INFO
Over the past 19 years I've coached thousands of professionals across Asia Pacific to find and follow their true passion and direction and am honoured to have been nominated for Telstra's Business Woman of the Year in 2014 and 2016.
I was born in Malaysia to an English father and Cantonese mother before growing up in Hong Kong. Having lived and worked in Hong Kong, San Francisco, London, Singapore and Sydney, I've a solid understanding of the challenges when making a city or country change, reinventing your career and finding the right support at the right time.
With experience in Public Relations, Travel, FMCG, Health & Fitness, Education, Training, Human Resources and Consulting, I have a keen understanding of the importance to tap into transferrable skills to make any career change.
I've also learned a lot about cultural differences in the workplace and, when it comes to entrepreneurship, how to create a successful face-to-face and remote business by leveraging technology and staying up to speed with current trends and market requirements.
WHAT'S IMPORTANT TO ME
I am committed to helping professionals gain the clarity and confidence required to take control of their careers and helping to answer what my clients often ask themselves, "What do I want to be when I grow up?" And that's regardless of whether they are in their 20's, 30's, 40's or 50's!
MY MISSION AND MY 'WHY?'
I'm on a mission to inspire every professional who wants to take control of their career so they can create a career that is both personally satisfying and financially rewarding.
