Job hunting can be an uncertain and time consuming process. Minimise your stress and maximise your job search and career opportunities with a professionally written résumé, cover letter, selection criteria response or LinkedIn profile from Successful Resumes in "The Hills".

Why do you need a professional resume writer?

In a competitive market, your resume (sometimes called a CV), cover letter or LinkedIn profile need to be more than just a typed list of your previous roles in order to make an outstanding first impression.

Using a professional resume writer's skills and industry knowledge gives your resume, cover letter or LinkedIn profile a competitive edge. By dedicating many hours of preparation to a targeted job application, you may be shortlisted for an interview. Do you have the time or expertise?

What does a successful resume look like?

A successful resume presents your unique value to a potential employer by showing exactly what you have to offer. It clearly sets out your skills and experiences, highlights your personal qualities, defines your professional attributes and concisely explains your key achievements.

What about cover letters, selection criteria, LinkedIn and coaching?

A cover letter should provide a compelling introduction to your job application by showing your genuine interest in the job and the company plus explain why you are applying for the role. This helps the recruiter or employer to understand your motivations.

Selection criteria answers need to be clear, concise and well structured, particularly with public sector applications. If well done, your chance of reaching the interview stage is improved.

Kell also develops well structured LinkedIn profiles and provides supportive coaching to help you make the most of your professional relationship with him.

The Process

Kell works closely with every client to prepare job applications (resumes, cover letters, selection criteria or profiles) that reflect your individual skills, experience and personal qualities.

The process begins with an in-depth consultation where Kell will interview you to establish your career framework ie what you have been doing, where you want to go professionally, your career needs and jobs you wish to target.

As most people don’t understand how employers and recruiters make hiring decisions, Kell will use his insights and knowledge to ensure your resume tells them exactly what they need to know.

Margaret, Qld

"Thanks Kell…..I'm absolutely speechless…I've never seen such an amazing looking resume and to think that it is about me….I'm over the moon with my resume."

"Thanks again Kell, very happy with the result. Would highly recommend your services to others."


"I got the job I really wanted!"

Nikki, school leaver

"I was the only external candidate interviewed which points to the quality of the resume, so thanks again for your help with that."

Tom A, Printing Manager

"My new resume helped me get my foot in the mining door without having any mates or contacts in this sector.......I now have a great job in WA fly-in fly-out and also work in China for my employer's business partner. I have since recommended this service to several of my mates because my employer said it was one of the best resumes he had seen"

Rick F, Plumber

"The resume you wrote did a good job. It first impressed the agent I went through and then the translated copy hit home with the employer. Not bad"

Jonas Werner, former Australian resident, Senior Specialist, software solutions, Japan.

"IT WORKED !!!!! I honestly must say that without Susan's help I probably would not have got into Macquarie Graduate School of Management. Her input, professionalism and enthusiasm were just amazing."

Carl Porter, Retail / Health Services Manager & Macquarie University Business applicant

"You really helped me get my confidence back after trying and failing time and time again to write a professional resume for myself. I had many different skills from a range of backgrounds and to me it just looked messy. You made my resume look directed and professional strategizing it towards a specific Environmental consulting role. The finished product was fantastic and really emphasized my strengths within this field. I made interview for a position with Conservation Volunteers as soon as I started applying for employment with my new resume. Thanks, you really helped me gain back the confidence with my resume I needed to go out there and get the environmental management role I am looking for."

Caren Taylor, Environmental Consultant, Wollongong

"Susan's professional ability to assess and document my personal profile, skills, and experience in my resume together with her empowering and motivating personality, contributed to my securing a new sales role."

Judy Rafferty, Senior Sales Consultant, Galston

"I discovered your website whilst looking for a resume consultant to help me redesign my CV for a career change I was making. Coming from a creative field in the film industry I required someone who had the insight and overview of my profession to help me redefine my skills so they could be applied in a wider range of interviews. "Susan has a wonderful ability to listen and absorb information. I found her most personable and inspiring to be with and a complete powerhouse of energy and enthusiasm. "She became so much more than just a consultant... if anything I could easily say she was practically a mentor whilst trying tofind my way into a new industry and job role...many thanks Susan."

Johnny Searle, Creative Co-ordinator, Jervis Bay - Oscar winning team member of Australian film Babe
