DID YOU KNOW …

Our Professional Resumes are QUALITY GUARANTEED.  What that means is that if you are not completely satisfied with your finished resume, we provide a full refund.

Our Professional Resumes include ONGOING FUTURE EDITS any time that your circumstances change, i.e. change of contact information, referees, new jobs, new qualifications or training.

All our resume templates are totally Applicant Tracking System compliant which means that your resume will always pass through these systems.

Will your resume achieve interviews ?

It’s a fact, that most advertised positions attract upwards of hundreds of applications and therefore hiring organisations usually spend around six (6) seconds making a decision to read more. Your resume must create an immediate impact and that is why the first page is the ‘key’ to achieving interviews. Apart from the content, the overall look and feel of your document also creates an immediate impression – again, hiring organisations perceive your overall professionalism from the quality of the resume document you have submitted.

What we check

TEMPLATE – most ATS convert Word and PDF files into .txt documents and therefore cannot effectively interpret data which is placed in columns, tables or text-boxes.  If your resume is not a simple, one column document – it will usually be rejected.  NOTE – if your current resume does not fall into this category, you should consider investing in an ATS compliant professional resume now.

KEYWORDS/KEY-PHRASES – ATS algorithms are set up against certain singular words and phrases which are essential to the advertised position.  These will be words/phrases which are incorporated into the position advertisement itself and/or the associated formal Position Description and can include (but are not limited to) expertise related to the capabilities of the role, requisite technical skills, and ‘soft skills’ such as communication, teamwork, organisational abilities etc.

FONTS & BULLET-POINTS – most ATS prefer San Serif fonts such as Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, Verdana.  Serif fonts such as Times New Roman, Cambria, Bookman can present ‘parsing’ difficulties.  Similarly, ATS prefer simple, rounded or dashed bullet-points as other (non-conventional) types can be translated as graphic elements. 

POTENTIAL TO ACHIEVE INTERVIEWS – we not only check ATS compliance, but also the document’s potential to achieve interviews and job offers for you based on the content.  Your current resume may well be ATS compliant and passed on for human intervention, however, the content itself may not effectively promote your value proposition to hiring organisations.
