Established in 1994 my résumé writing service has delivered results to many satisfied clients, working closely with people from all industries and fields, including those looking to change career direction or move industry.
I have experienced many changes in preparing résumés, covering letters and selection criteria responses over this time, and it is important that your résumé reflects current times, portrays YOU as a valuable proposition, and has the right structure, content and design to captivate the attention of the reader and get YOU short-listed for the position.
Professionally prepared résumés that are individually tailored to suit each client's needs and employer expectations. I like to create a snapshot of YOU, highlighting YOUR relevant skills, experience and achievements to give YOU the best possible chance of landing that job interview.
A successful résumé combines your professional profile with your unique strengths, and must concisely present you with the right mix of information.
Equally as important is a personalised and well-crafted cover letter addressing the criteria outlined in the job advertisement. Once again, this cover letter must represent you as an individual, and it is here that we highlight why you are attracted to that role, your most relevant skills and experience pertinent to the position, and why you are ideally suited. Don't waste time on generic letters, invest the time on a personal representation of you and what you will bring to the position.
Key Selection Criteria required for many government positions can present as a daunting task for many. I make this a whole lot easier by simplifying what is required and how we tackle it.
It is important that we use specific examples that illustrate how you meet each criteria, and this involves quite a lot of discussion and input from you. I then compile the information using appropriate keywords into coherent responses that clearly address the criteria.

I'll keep it simple - I am passionate about my work and client satisfaction
has always been my highest priority. With over 20 years' experience preparing résumés, cover letters and selection criteria responses for many satisfied clients,
I stand by my commitment to uphold your expectations.
If you have an existing résumé then email it through and I will quote you directly. Normally the cost is between $170 and $200 plus GST - these prices respectively include a half hour or full hour consultation, the complete preparation of the résumé and a copy forwarded via email.
Additional consultations where required for more complex applications, will incur additional costs - these costs will be fully quoted at initial consultation.
A one page application letter is $60 plus GST and response to Key Selection Criteria is costed at consultation, due to the amount of variance involved.

WHY USE MY SERVICE?
WHAT DOES MY SERVICE OFFER?
Thanks Karen, Résumé looks fantastic and I got the job! Thanks so much - I'll definitely recommend you to anyone else who needs one done .
Hello Karen, Thank you so much for your résumé service. I could not be happier with the first draft result, it was very personal as well as precise. It was very much a pleasure to work with you and your services were very direct and professional. You hold great ability to outline the hidden skills/experience in a client.
Hi Karen, I got 3 out of 4 interviews and ended up getting Royal Melbourne Hospital for my grad year, which I'm very happy about! Couldn't have done it without you, thank you.
Dear Karen, Thank you so much for your kindness, all your help and encouragement. It was greatly appreciated! Sorry to have you work on the weekend! … Thankz again.
Located in Belmont, Geelong, ideally I like to set-up a phone consultation where together we brainstorm and I gather the information I require about you!
I then prepare an individually tailored résumé that is concise, impacts the reader, is professionally formatted and stands out from the crowd!
If a consultation is not convenient for you, we can work via email.
Once completed, I normally forward you a copy of your résumé via email for you to read through - we then make any adjustments or changes if needed. If you require printed copies or a memory stick you are welcome to collect these, or alternatively I can send them via Australia Post.
