Professional resume writing services and LinkedIn services

Professional Resume

We know how top-tier executives and aspiring leaders operate and what is expected of them. We work with the ‘best and the brightest’ in business to help leverage their successes to prove to Boards and executive teams that they can make a difference. We will focus on your key achievements/contributions to demonstrate the value you can bring to an organisation. Your winning resume will be visually dynamic, keyword rich and tailored to the target audience, and reviewed easily in 10 seconds by the hiring authority. Please see our resume samples page for an insight into what we can do for you. This service includes:

  • 30-45 minute phone consultation in addition to your completion of an information form. The phone interview will allow me to draw out all critical information so that all vital aspects of your story can be told, including forensic questioning examining your unique talents and analysing your career and value you offer the prospective employer;
  • Full colour personalised resume design with advanced formatting based on your unique requirements, career goals and target role/industry;
  • Your professional resume in MS Word (email), PDF (print) and ATS-optimised formats.

Networking Resume

A visually engaging 1-page overview of your value proposition, expertise, career highlights and key achievements, with your professional brand and target at the forefront; the Networking Resume is perfect for distributing to past and present colleagues, business associates, connections, and even friends and family, so they can quickly gain an understanding of what you do and the value you offer. The addition of this approach to your job search could potentially open doors you didn’t know existed; after all, networking has always been, and will always be, the number 1 job search strategy.

Cover Letter

Cover letters are often overlooked as an unimportant aspect of a job application. This is simply not true – cover letters are vital as they establish all-important rapport with the prospective employer and effectively communicate your personal brand whilst highlighting some of your key achievements and strengths.

E-Note

The E-Note is a cut and refined version of the traditional cover letter, perfectly suited to today’s digital age. The E-Note gets straight to the point; it’s just a third to a half a page and appears in the body of your email to the hiring authority, guaranteeing it will be seen and you’re effectively selling yourself before any attachments are even opened.

Thank You E-Note

A well-written thank you letter can make the difference between winning the job, or not. Your thank you letter will be prepared after your job interview and fully customised to the role and the interviewer(s). Its purpose is to communicate information that was not shared during the interview, respond to any concerns that may have been raised, reinforce points from the interview, distinguish you as different from other candidates, and of course build a relationship with the hiring authority and keep you top-of-mind.

LinkedIn Profile Starter/Update

LinkedIn can help you effectively position yourself in the competitive job market, network with like-minded people in your industry, and apply for advertised jobs through an online database. You may even be headhunted by recruiters or potential employers. As the world’s largest professional network with over 380 million members worldwide and more than 7 million members in Australia, you’d be mad not to join!

Selection Criteria

Selection criteria are mandatory for most government roles, but can be time-consuming and difficult to write if you’re not sure how to go about it. I have extensive experience in writing selection criteria for a wide range of different roles and sectors, including full comprehensive selection criteria, cover letters addressing selection criteria, and statements of claim.
