Melissa Hume is a Sydney-based HR professional with over ten years of experience in the field. She noticed a lack of Australian resources available to support those in the beginning stages of their careers and was inspired to author her first book Career Guidance for Now and for the Future – a practical guide to help you understand how companies recruit and select candidates.

Your HR Ally is Melissa’s second book. As a HR Excellence Awardee in 2021 and the founder of Career Guidance Now, Melissa is continually taking her career to new heights. She has a number of qualifications including a Graduate Certificate in Business Administration and a Bachelor’s Degree majoring in Psychology.
