Why should I invest in a resume?
A professionally written resume is based on an objective third party’s interpretation of your skills, knowledge and experience. Many people find it difficult to analyse themselves and may fail to recognise transferable skills. Having us involved will highlight your strengths and present them professionally, increasing your chances of being selected for interview.
We also have experience from the recruiter and employer perspective so have up to date knowledge of what will capture the reader’s interest and what is best avoided. In addition, we stay informed about current trends via online groups and discussions, meaning you don’t have to.
What do I need to bring or send for the resume interview?
We will need to sight copies of your qualifications and any versions of your resume you already have will assist.
How is my resume created?
We write your resume based on the information you provide during your resume interview. Whether conducted over the phone, Skype or in person we will ask you questions designed to discover the detail required to write a professional resume. We will then create your resume and provide you with a proof within 2-3 business days.

Regardless of how your interview is conducted we will be asking you about your:
employment and/or voluntary work experience history: companies, titles and start & finish dates
skills: transferable, role related, specialist and interpersonal
qualifications: secondary, tertiary, courses completed; where and when
What will be included in my resume?

Career Summary or Objective: this is an introductory paragraph that highlights your career highlights to date or states your career goals
Key Skills: relevant skills gained and listed in structured format
Career Overview: tabulated to provide a quick career insight. This is designed to encourage the recruiter or potential employer to read further

...and more of course!
What do I do with my proof?
This is your opportunity to check the details and content and let us know if you would like changes or alterations made. You can ask for two revisions within 30 days of receiving your first draft.
How will I receive my final resume?
