Total Resume Service

We help our clients achieve their career goals

We have been assisting clients across Australia to achieve their career goals for more than ten years. From fresh graduates with only intern experience through to seasoned career professionals. This includes individuals seeking to enter government for the first time or simply seeking better career opportunities in the private sector.

COVID-19 has significantly impacted career options across multiple sectors, with many industries either just hanging in there or already gone to the wall. That is why you should focus on bullet-proof career opportunities either within the government sector or with sectors that are resilient to socioeconomic circumstances.

Not sure where you would slot into government or what private sector roles you would be suitable for? Book a free 15-minute career consultancy session now, and we will help you identify what opportunities you should consider.

Services we offer

Professional Resumes

Our professional resumes are fully Applicant Tracking System (ATS) compliant.  They are tailored to the positions and industry sectors you are targeting.  What's more, they include ongoing free future edits any time that your circumstances change.

Government Applications

Government applications are our specialisation and account for about 75% of our business.  We have a very strong understanding of all Australian government agency and state government application requirements.

Private Sector Applications

The private sector job market is highly competitive, often attracting hundreds of applications for every advertised position.  We are experts in translating your skill set and experience to position you as a perfect 'fit' for advertised roles and achieve interviews.

Interview & Career Advice

Our professional resumes and applications can certainly achieve interviews, but you also have to interview well.  That is why we provide a full suite of interview guides including responding to questions, what questions to expect to be asked, and how to make a lasting impression on the interview panel.

We collaborate with you

Unlike many writing services, we work closely with our clients to clearly identify their career objectives and tailor their documents accordingly.

Our Pricing

We are well under the Australian professional writers 'normal' of hundreds of dollars for both resumes and individual applications.  We consider these inflated pricing structures unrealistic and unaffordable for most Australians seeking professional writing services.

Applicant Tracking System Compliant

Many writing services in Australia have overseas origins, and the majority of their templates are 2-columned, which are not ATS compliant for the Australian job market.  Our documents are totally ATS compliant.

Our Resumes are Quality Guaranteed

What that means is that if you are not convinced our professional resume will achieve interviews for you, we provide a full refund.

Ongoing future resume edits

Our professional resumes include ongoing future edits any time your circumstances change, such as additional qualifications or training, additional jobs, new referees.  What's more, we provide our documents in WORD format while many resume services only provide PDF documents.

Our Success Rate

Most of our business is generated via recommendations and referrals from our satisfied clients who have achieved interviews and job offers.  This is important to us, and it should be to you.

Invest in yourself

We are specialists in creating documents that do achieve interviews - our success in doing so has resulted in most of our clients moving their careers forward in either government or private sector roles.

Don't think it's worth getting a professional resume? You may be tempted to download one of the free resume templates available on the internet or even those offered on Microsoft WORD, but did you know that most of these two-column templates featuring tables and graphical elements are not compatible with Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) used by the majority of Australian Government and private sector organisations, and will, in fact, be rejected?

Having your resume professionally written is probably one of the best investments that you will make; what's more, it sends messages to hiring organisations that you are serious about your career advancement

Get a 'Quick Quote for Service'

We don't have a 'one cost fits all' pricing structure, and our services are costed to each client's individual requirements.  You may be just starting out in your career or well advanced seeking new job opportunities.  Whatever your situation, you can be confident that our prices with delight you.  What's more, our quality far exceeds the majority of Australian professional writing services.

Questions you may ask

How long does it take to complete the service?

This is dependent upon our workload at the time.  We prioritise our work according to position closing dates and if these are not indicated, for example a SEEK advertisement, then this would be more urgent than a position with a 2-week closing date.  Where possible, you should allow for at least a 4-day turnaround on completed applications and we will advise if this is not achievable.

Do you advise me if you don't think my resume will pass through an Applicant Tracking System?

We certainly would.  Our business purpose is to achieve interviews for our clients.  Your resume must be ATS compliant to achieve this or it will be rejected before it passes on for human intervention.

Do you use STAR examples in applications?

Generally always, even in non-government applications.  Hiring organisations prefer to see 'examples' demonstrating your ability to perform their advertised positions.

How much does the service cost?

We do not have a 'one price fits all' approach.  Our prices are structured to the needs of our clients and their circumstances, i.e. fresh graduate or advanced career professional.  You can choose from our most popular packages or request a quote for service.   You will be quite surprised at our totally affordable pricing.

Do you offer discounts on multiple applications 

Yes, many of our clients are submitting applications for multiple positions and we always provide significant discounts on these, as well as discounts for family member or friend services.

What if I am not happy with my professional resume?

Don't worry - you will be delighted with your professional resume.  Remember also, that our resumes are quality guaranteed which means we provide a full refund if you are not convinced that it will achieve interviews for you.
