Hi Chris, Just letting you know that I received an offer last week for a provisional psychologist/ behaviour support practitioner. They organised the interview the day after I submitted my resume and cover letter and I received the offer two days after the interview. So thanks to you and the resume you created, I received offers for 3 interviews out of 4 applications which is great kudos to you. I will definitely be recommending your services to friends and colleagues. Suzanne

Hi Chris, I am happy to report after 2 interviews with Mazda Australia I was offered the role of Project Office Manager, slightly different to job advertisement I applied for, and I accepted. Thank you for all your support.

Hey Chris,

Just letting you know that I’ve secured a developer role. I’d like to once again thank you for your help with my resume and cover letters.

I had several interviews and they all stated that my resume was among the best looking in their application pools. In particular the Technical skills sections and programming languages stood out in comparison.

Thanks again, Sebastian

Hi Chris, A quick note to let you know that the resume and cover letter that you prepared for me last month has resulted in three interviews, two job offers and one contract! I start a new role in Training and Professional Development in late March. I can’t thank you enough.  S.R

Hi Chris, Thanks so much for the cover letter, LinkedIn profile instructions and interview guide! You’ve been so helpful and efficient!   Susanne

From the first contact, Chris Taylor from Successful Resumes was very helpful and went above and beyond to provide me with top service. All documents were speedily created and sent to me for my review and any changes that I requested were made.   I ended up having the exact resume that I wanted. Chris also gave good advice on cover letter writing and LinkedIn profiles.  He provided interview tips and was all-round a great bloke. I would highly recommend Chris’ services and will be using Successful Resumes again in the future. Thanks, Jason

I have to say that you’ve done a brilliant job distilling all my information down to a very hard-hitting snapshot of my career and experience. As they say in the classics “you only get one chance at a first impression” – you have captured it perfectly. I am delighted with the end result. Thanks very much once again for a fantastic job.

Chief Financial Officer

I’ve now got three job offers out of the work that we did together on my résumé, cover letter and LinkedIn profile!! Getting all these job offers has been such a boost for my confidence and I now know that I’m a very valuable applicant.


I’m really happy to say I have got an interview with SAPOL this week. This is the fastest close of applications to interview turn-around that I’ve ever been part of!! I’m very excited. This is my A job. Thanks so much for all your great work.

IT programmer

I felt comfortable talking to Chris to explain what I was after. Chris worked over the long weekend to provide a resume, well worded answers to key competencies questions and a cover letter. Not only were these provided over the long weekend but Chris kept in regular contact, asking questions to ensure the resume represented me honestly and in a manner that I was comfortable with… The result of Chris’s work and final products was that I was offered an interview and ultimately the job. This is amazing as a year ago I had sent my previous resume for various jobs and received no response… Not only did Chris improve my resume – ultimately I believe his work got me the interview to the job I wanted.


I’ve only now had time to peruse your work on my resume and consider it a true masterpiece, I’m so happy with it. Thank you for your time and patience during this process and I will recommend you to all… and again Chris, thank you.

I believe you have been a key to my success and I cannot thank you enough ! Thank you ! Buying you a beer would be the least I could do for you

IT Consultant

Using the skills you gave me in the Interview Tips document, but more importantly the guidance you gave me over the phone, was the key to my success. Not only that, with the cover letter and resume you provided, I also interviewed for another 2 jobs. One was a 2 stage interview process and the other had 3 stages. These other two companies also offered me positions ! To make things even sweeter, I was offered 30% on top of my asking salary figure !

Chris, I have some amazing news. It turns out that the recruiters were dragging their feet with their interview process. They invited me in for an interview last week and then I was invited for a second round interview and they offered me the position.
