linkedin profiles

Everyone needs a professional LinkedIn profile to advance their career – many hiring organisations source candidates from LinkedIn.

affordable, realistic prices

Many writing services that advertise in Australia, are overseas’ based.  That’s the reason for (very often) highly inflated prices including multiple hundreds of dollars for resumes and selection criteria applications.  As an Australia-based organisation, our prices are totally affordable and tailored for the Australian job  market.

quality guaranteed resumes

All our professional resumes are ‘Quality Guaranteed’ which means that if you are not entirely satisfied with your completed document or convinced that it will achieve interviews for you, we offer a full refund.  Most resume writing services do not offer this ‘peace of mind’ guarantee.

ATS optimised documents

The majority of resume writing services in Australia are overseas based and use totally non-ATS compliant resume templates (see non-compliant examples HERE). As a result, while these templates may look visually appealing, they are not, in fact, ATS compliant nor suitable for the Australian job market.

ongoing resume edits

Our professional resumes are inclusive of free ongoing future edits any time that your circumstances change such as change of contact information, change of referees, additional training/ qualifications, additional job positions.  Your confidential documents are always retained on file.

I contacted Total Resume Service to assist me with a Key Selection Criteria and updating my resume which had not changed in over 6 years. I was absolutely amazed and blown away on the detail and professionalism in my new resume and key selection criteria when I received it.
