Resume Writing Services

 

Does this sound like you?

You are tired of missing out on jobs that you know that you are qualified and experienced for. You may be missing out to less-qualified and less-experienced job-seekers with better written resumes/CVs and cover letters.

You are feeling disillusioned with job-hunting and the fact that you are being over-looked for promotion and career development opportunities. You may be seeing less experienced job-seekers and colleagues secure promotions and pay increases.

You are committed to finding a new job with a new organisation or you may be proactively applying for roles internally, however you are getting nowhere and don't understand why you are failing to attract interviews.

You don't feel confident selling yourself and are not sure how to present your experience and market yourself in a competitive way.

You are confused about what information to include as part of your resume and are not sure about managing gaps in employment or career breaks.

You just don't have the time to prepare your resume and would prefer to engage a professional master resume writer to assist you.

If these scenarios sound familiar .....I can definitely help!

 

In today’s competitive job market, you don’t have much time to make a positive first impression. In fact, recruiters and hiring managers are likely to SCAN your resume for suitability and spend approximately 20-30 seconds deciding whether to interview you or not!

This is compounded by the competitive nature of the modern-Australian job market and the fact that many recruiters will receive in excess of 50-100 applications per position.

What this means for you is that you need to make a positive first impression by identifying your selling points and focusing on your achievements, marketing yourself professionally, communicating your unique value and leveraging this experience and ability to secure your ideal role.

Over the past +10 years, I have seen hundreds (probably more like thousands) of resumes from all levels of job-seekers across all industry sectors through my roles as Master Resume and Expert Selection Criteria Writer, Recruiter (in-house and consultancy), Hiring Manager and Human Resource professional and many of them have been badly written, poorly presented and stood out for all the wrong reasons.

Just imagine:

  • Tailoring your resume to the SPECIFIC roles that you are applying for by highlighting your strengths and managing possible employment barriers
  • Setting yourself apart from other job-seekers by articulating your UNIQUE contributions and "selling points"
  • Writing persuasively using clear communication and powerful marketing and sales language without exaggerating or inflating your successes
  • Uncovering and articulating your career successes through informational interviewing and thinking about your experience in a results-oriented way
  • Presenting your experience in a modern and visually appealing manner making it easy for recruiters and hiring managers to follow your career history and appreciate your expertise

As a Triple-Certified Resume Writer and the FIRST Qualified Selection Criteria Writer (CMRW – Certified Master Resume Writer, CARW – Certified Advanced Resume Writer, CRS - APS – Certified Australian Public Service Resume and Selection Criteria Specialist), supported by over 10 years of practical experience within recruitment and selection, I have first-hand knowledge of recruitment and selection processes within the public and private sectors as well as an understanding of what employers and hiring managers are looking for in a professional resume.

Don't jeopardise your career progression and prospective job success by relying on an inferior resume/curriculum vitae.

Anything less could mean that you miss out on jobs and career opportunities to other less-qualified applicants whose resumes/CVs are better written marketing/sales documents than yours.

 

 

 

"Hi Nikky

Just a quick email to say a big THANK YOU for your excellent job of presenting my resume. I had applied for that job twice before and hadn't been asked for an interview. After your complete overhaul of my resume, I got an interview and was offered the job! There were over 300 applications. I have been working there for 3 weeks now and am very happy. Thanks again for all of your help. The list of questions that you asked me made me think of skills that I hadn't thought were relevant to the job."
