Resume Writing to get you the interview

It is a competitive market out there and the difference between a ‘career changing’ job offer and a standardised rejection email can be as simple as a piece of paper – your resume.

Your resume is a self marketing tool. If you want to be seen in today’s job or career market you have to stand out.

Regardless of your perceived level of experience or the type of job you want to secure, be it part time while studying, the start of your career or that next step up, a strategically written resume can put you head and shoulders above the competition and get you that all important job interview.

We use proven methods to ensure your resume effectively markets your strengths, experience and achievements. Through an initial consultation face to face, telephone or Skype we gather the information required to create the resume you need to get you to where you want to go.

Cover Letters that make you stand out

The first thing a potential employer sees in your Job application is the Cover Letter. Like your resume, your cover letter needs to differentiate you from other applicants, highlighting the skills and experience you have to make you stand out.

Selection Criteria

Most government and some private sector roles are asking, as part of your application, to address Selection Criteria. You will need to provide written proof of your skills, competencies or experience by providing work place situation examples. With a collaborative approach, we can work with you to help ensure your examples are structured, relevant and clearly address the criteria requirements.

LinkedIn Profiles that maximise the impact of your online identity

You cannot afford to ignore this amazing job search tool.  LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network and is increasingly used by recruiters to post vacancies and more importantly to search for candidates. We can create a LinkedIn Profile that maximises the impact and visibility of your online identity.

Outplacement Service

Providing support and guidance for employees who have recently been made redundant in the transition to new jobs or to reorient them to the job market. We will advise them on how best to position themselves in the market, identify suitable job opportunities and present themselves effectively to employers. This includes: Reviewing job market material ie. Resume, LinkedIn Profile, defining and developing career goals, developing a structured and targeted approach on achieving the goals and reviewing the current market to identify opportunities. Call to discuss a tailored package to suit individual needs.

Dear Cheryn, I'm writing to you to show my appreciation and I am so grateful that my friend put me forward to yourself.

Since my last email and with job prospects at CBA, I ended up choosing Google instead and without a doubt my resume that you built, helped me achieve the statistic of 0.02% of people who are employed by Google with 3m applicants a year.

In addition, the resume you compiled for my other friend, also helped her receive a job at Alex Perry as a causal while at university and a full-time internship with Westpac during her university breaks.

You are amazing!!

Just letting you know I was successful in getting the Engineers position at Sydney Harbour Ferries. There were 180 applications so thank you for your attention to detail with my resume and attaching all the relevant documents and certificates for the HR Department. With so many applications I know that your work helped me to be successful.

Cheryn was a continuing source of support and advice during my search for my first job. Her services are great value for money, compared to other overpriced resume writers in the market. Cheryn is friendly, resourceful and very dependable as an overall mentor and resume writer. She provided me with the skills for approaching a successful interview, as well as writing a well-written, professional, and clear resume for me, which secured many job interviews. With Cheryn's interview toolkit and detailed resume writing skills, I felt very confident with my job interviews. I successfully landed a job role which I am very excited to start, and is an overall great fit for me. Thank you for all your help Cheryn, it was greatly appreciated.

Human Resources Graduate, University of Wollongong

Cheryn recently supported our employees at the Sydney North Shore and Beaches Medicare Local during the period leading up to the organisations closure as a result of the withdrawal of government funding. I received extremely positive feedback from all those she provided outplacement support to, particularly with cover letters, resume writing and interview skills. I am pleased to say we also had some of our employees successfully placed in new roles. I would highly recommend Cheryn's services to those seeking professional outplacement support.
