Praise

Here's what those in the industry say


I have had the pleasure of working closely with Tanya Dunbabin for over 7 years. I have no hesitation in saying that Tanya was primarily responsible for the tremendous success achieved in our Graduate Recruitment Program. Tanya’s professionalism, the rapport that she developed with the graduates and the extremely high acceptance and retention rate that she achieved made our program the envy of all other law firms in Brisbane. It is difficult to imagine how we will be able to continue to achieve the same success without Tanya’s involvement.

Tanya has a wealth of knowledge about the inner workings of a law firm, what Partners value in their lawyers and importantly how the mechanics of law firm recruitment works. This insight places her in a unique position to advise graduates and law firms alike from a position of authority across all types of legal recruitment but especially graduate recruitment.

Tanya and I worked together on the Graduate Recruitment Program at HSF for 7 years and I have seen first-hand the care and guidance that Tanya is able to give to students looking for success on that pathway. The competition for positions means that even great candidates can miss out on being selected if they don’t understand how to properly network and build relationships at careers events, how to communicate their strengths on a CV/application and how to put their best self forward in interviews with the law firm recruiting staff. I would highly recommend Tanya as a coach to give law graduates their best chance of landing the position they want and then for being successful as a junior lawyer
