Standout Careers is here to help people take the necessary actions to pursue their dream career opportunities by providing trusted support and services.
Anita Fletcher set up the company following a diverse career in various roles and settings. Anita experienced first hand what it’s like to enter roles that were not at all expected, to identify and develop interests along the way, to take the occasional leap and change direction and to keep learning and exploring the vast array of work possibilities at our disposal.
We often find ourselves funnelled in to limited or narrow options. One of Standout Careers’ drivers is to help people think beyond those obvious choices and consider other paths, roads, highways..
Medical Careers are our specialty.
For 5 years Anita ran the Medical Careers Advisory for the Australian peak body for medical professionals (Australian Medical Association), engaging with thousands of doctors within Australia and internationally.
Our team possesses a deep understanding of the many and varied complexities and challenges of a career in Medicine and the opportunities that exist for doctors outside of Medicine.
This expertise, in combination with personalised assistance and career-related training services, results in significant progress toward greater career fulfilment for doctors.
Whatever career stage or situation you currently find yourself in, we’d love to work with you to identify where you want to go next and help you to get there.

I contacted Anita while figuring out my transition to a new career and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Her vast range of experience in the medical and corporate sector was valuable with updating my resume and particularly in interview practice. With her expertise, personalised service, and encouragement I was able to confidently and successfully transition into a different career path and I'm so grateful!

Ms Fletcher is an incredible asset to the Australian medical community. I first worked with Anita in my capacity as the president of the Women in Medicine Group, at the University of New South Wales, a grassroots initiative to promote gender equity in the medical profession. Anita facilitated a tailored workshop for medical students on how to build CVs. She engaged well with not only the audience, but also those who video conferenced in, showing superior communication skills. Feedback from students included praise about her practical advice, understanding, and ability to answer questions. We were also appreciative that Anita came after hours to share her knowledge with us. Thanks to Anita we now feel empowered to take positive steps towards our careers in medicine, and are excited about being the next generation of doctors.

I've worked with Anita on several projects and events delivering career advice and building interview skills for young doctors. At all times, Anita has displayed a depth of knowledge and willingness to accommodate the needs of AMA (ACT) and our members that is second to none. Combining her depth of knowledge with a calm, structured manner means that I have no hesitation in recommending to future business partners.

The magic that Anita worked for my CV has changed the outlook I have on my career path in a very positive way. Her engagement style made it quite easy to reveal the hidden gems of my experience and key strengths in reworking my CV which had been neglected for a decade. I am very happy with the reworked final product but more importantly, through highly effective coaching, Anita has revitalised the view I have for the next stage of my working life.
