Pinstripe Solutions Founder
‘Thinking about it, ending up in the aviation industry was not really a surprise. My dad was a WWII Pilot and a keen plane spotter. As kids he would often take us to the observation deck of Auckland airport. We loved it and it became a regular adventure.
My first foray into the world of Recruitment was rewarded by a win in the Telstra Industry Small Business Awards; shortly after Pinstripe Solutions carved out a niche in the aviation sector.’
“I get to help people strive for their career dreams every day. Your emails, courage and dedication continue to inspire me. I cannot think of anything else I would rather do”
I did interview prep with Kirsty Ferguson for 2 regional airlines, I had a Dash8 and ATR interview. I was successful in both interviews. I took the job on the Q400 last night!! Bring on the line training!! I wanted to thank you for all your help, you have been such an asset to me and a huge part of why I have been successful in my last two jobs and getting me to where I am today. - C. Pilot
If no one has told you today... you are excellent! The Air Macau interview went just as you said it would. It was good learning experience and all your help made it almost enjoyable. - L.K Pilot
I cannot speak highly enough of Pinstripe Solutions and Kirsty's approach to what she does. She has an in-depth knowledge of the inner-workings of many airlines. I had been out of flying for a few years and wanted back in so contacted Pinstripe. Over two sessions Kirsty stepped me through a game plan. She quickly identified the wrinkles and ironed them out. I am pleased to say that, due largely to these sessions, I felt confident and relaxed in the interviews. I now have a job as a First Officer on the Dash 8.- C.P. Pilot
The cover letter is great, a vast improvement on my attempt, so very happy with that. The resume again very happy with that and format is so much better than the one I had. The coaching session this morning was fantastic, walked away with a better understanding and a different perspective to job interviews... much more confident now. A very very big thank you for your super fast responses time and it is refreshing that you are instant with you emails, messages and calls. Keep up the good work.- J.P. Aircraft Engineer
So after (what seemed like) endless applications I called on the expertise of Pinstripe Solutions and have now had two job interviews within a week! Thank you Kirsty for giving me the confidence to tackle those 'behavioural questions', after being a SAHM (Stay At Home Mum) for 8 years I needed a little hand holding to get my confidence back. - Katrina Sheperd
Kirsty is an expert in the field of aviation employment coaching. She is well connected and has a deep insight into the workings of the industry. As a coach she is patient and encouraging. After my time spent with Kirsty the interview process became much less daunting. I went into my interview confident that I had an good answer for any question that might arise. I was given the nod for my dream job. Thanks Kirsty. M.P. - Jet Pilot & Instructor ADF
I am being appointed and departing for my initial military training and just want to say thank you so much for helping me in getting through the OSB interviews. I think the knowledge and confidence that I gained from the coaching was invaluable to my success. Once again, thank you. - ADF (Airforce) B.B.
Thank you so much for your interview coaching and resume help leading to my Metropolitan Fire Brigade interview which I passed, it was really fantastic to have an idea of how to answer the questions. Many thanks. - K.B. MBF Victoria
“Hi, I thought you would be happy to know that I have been offered a First Officer Position at (premier Australasian Jet Carrier). The interview went really well, your help has been invaluable. I also did a great job in the SIM.” -C. Narrow Body Jet Pilot
Lords knows the coaching experience was invaluable, as I was successful in getting the job and will start in Sydney on Monday for 10 weeks of training. Thanks again for your expertise. - P. Turbo Prop Pilot
