What our customers say


Professional Resumes

Tailored to your targeted positions

You only get one chance to make an impression when applying for advertised positions and your Resume must immediately promote your value proposition to hiring organisations.

Apart from evidencing your skills, areas of expertise, and importantly, your potential to add value to an organisation, it must present your 'professionalism' and 'organisational fit'. We are experts at translating this and have a proven record of achieving interviews for the majority of our clients.

Our affordable professional resumes are priced from just ($125 to $155) and include ongoing future edits any time your circumstances change.

Selection Criteria & Government Applications

Including STAR responses

Selection Criteria, Online Responses, Limited Page Cover Letters/Pitches are just some of the requirements specified for (Local, State, Commonwealth Government and Academic) applications.

You may have to 'demonstrate' your capabilities or why you are 'a good fit' for the position. In all instances, STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) responses are favoured.

We work with you to obtain 'base examples' and build these into STAR responses that place you as a candidate of choice for the advertised position and achieve interviews and job offers.

Our selection criteria, online responses, limited page applications etc are the most affordable in Australia and are proven to achieve interviews and job offers.

Cover Letters (non-Government)

Addressing the specifics of the advertised position

Whilst non-government positions may not have Selection Criteria, they will have specified requirements which should be treated the same and include STAR responses to demonstrate your suitability.

Note also, that generic cover letters rarely achieve interviews and therefore each application must address the advertised position.

Apart from meeting the requirements of the position, hiring organisations also want to identify you are an 'organisational fit' and will usually include details of their culture and business objectives in the advertisement.

Our non-Government Cover Letters applications are priced from just $45 and are proven to achieve interviews and job offers. Multiple application discounts also available.

Career Counselling

Let's identify your career goals

Career Counselling is just part of the services we offer. Many of our clients have been in long-term roles and are not sure of their suitability for other positions.

Having 12+ years' experience in assisting our clients across Australia achieve interviews and job offers in the Government and private sectors, we know how your skills and experience will marry up with advertised positions and other career opportunities.

Whilst our Career Counselling is free, we also offer a 'dedicated job search' service whereby we seek out advertised positions aligned to your career goals and send these to you for consideration.
