Frequently Asked Questions

What is the turnaround for your service?
Generally, we have draft documents back to you for review within 3 – 5 days, but shorter lead times can usually be accommodated.

What is your success rate in achieving interviews?
It is outstanding – we achieve interviews for the majority of our clients as our professional writers are ex-recruitment and know how to promote your value proposition to hiring organisations.  That is why most of our business comes from referrals.

What if I am not happy with my documents?
Don’t worry; you will be.  What’s more, we will work with you to ensure your documents are to your complete satisfaction and you are confident that you will achieve interviews.

What if I need changes to my professional resume down the track?
What sets us apart from other writing services is that our professional resumes include ongoing future edits any time that your circumstances change to ensure the document is always professional.  

How experienced are you with government applications?
Preparing professional resumes and applications for government positions is the largest part of our business.  We have a track record of getting clients into government and moving clients in government into higher grade roles.

Do you write STAR responses?
Generally always – even for non-government roles.  Hiring organisations want to see evidence that you have a particular expertise and/or the potential to achieve it.
