What our resume writers can do for you

Resumes (from graduates to senior management)
Whatever position you’re applying for, a succinct, customised professional resume is essential. We’ll work with you to ensure your resume stands out, strategically tailoring language and format to meet application guidelines. See how ‘wowed’ Sue Miller was with her resume. Note: Application tracking systems are on the rise, making it even more important to align your resume with these online search engines.

Cover Letters / Application Letters
Some recruiters won’t even look at resumes that don’t include a professional cover letter. It’s also your chance to really personalise your application. Along with your professional resume, we’ll insightfully write your cover letter for the specific job you’re after, to get you through the first recruitment stage.

e-Notes
A contemporary digital option in place of emailing a professional cover letter with your resume. Structured like a standard cover letter, the e-note is more concise and tailored for online reading. It also enables more immediate access to your personalised introduction. 

Selection Criteria
Some organisations, particularly government and academic, require a selection criteria response in addition to the above. Using the STAR methodology, we’ll help you to adequately and professionally answer each selection criterion based on your experience and expertise. This will be in full compliance with selection criteria specifications and word limits. 

LinkedIn Profiles
With over 330 million members, your LinkedIn profile needs to ‘shine’ if it’s going to stand out and expand your business and career prospects. Using concise, online language and keyword optimisation, we’ll write a career-selling LinkedIn profile that increases your business connections and magnifies you in search results. As noted by our client Lisa Phillips, she experienced a considerable increase in viewings and connection requests (see below).

“Within one month of Jeanette revamping my LI profile, I had received 20+ connection requests and more than tripled how often I showed up in search results. Very impressed with her keyword optimisation knowledge …”
