    The Successful Resumes difference

    We’re not your average resume writers. Not only are we one of Australia’s oldest resume specialists but in the thirty years we’ve been operating, we’ve managed to do something rare in the market, we’ve kept it about you.

    This means that we never outsource your work to offshore writers, we never use templates and while we like dipping into AI to make sure your resume is optimised for all the systems, we humans still write your documents.

    We live, work and play on the Northern Beaches so we understand the local and greater Sydney employment market. More importantly, we understand how to bring together your diverse experience, skills and personality to create resumes and job applications that capture what makes you special.

    As Australia’s most experienced resume writing company, what you’ll get from working with us is a deeply experienced career development writer who can tell your story in a way that makes you feel proud.

    What our clients say

    In my mid-fifties, I was contemplating a career transition from a lawyer of over thirty years to an NFP board role. I could draft legal documents, but not being in the job market for several years, I wasn’t across all of the nuances of resume-writing and job applications. I sent Cheryn my outdated resume and she reconfigured and transformed it and generally made me more competitive. This gave me the confidence to apply for board roles and I have recently been successful. I even had someone compliment me on my resume. I would not hesitate to recommend Cheryn for assistance with resume overhauling and assistance with applications. Lynne J, lawyer and NFP board member.

    “I had not needed a resume, and had not had a formal interview, as I had been in the same job as a government lawyer for seventeen years. Cheryn overhauled, modernised, reconfigured  and generally made my resume look more professional and competitive. I sent Cheryn the raw material and she crafted my response to the Selection Criteria for the role. I can write like a lawyer but not like an HR- professional, which Cheryn truly is. I cannot thank Cheryn enough, as she has given me the confidence to contemplate other roles. Cheryn truly ‘value-adds’, especially if you have not been in the job market for some time.”  L.J. Government Lawyer, Sydney

    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.


    Stephen has been an incredible support for me during the past nine months. He offers a personalised resume service and I have also found that his career mentoring is extremely beneficial. Stephen has opened my eyes to a variety of career development strategies, resources and contacts as well provided consistent care towards me that’s invaluable. I highly recommend his resume writing and career development skills to the full spectrum of professionals.

    I originally wanted to get some resume writing help but gained some sophisticated guidance on career strategy planning. The service he provided was way beyond my expectation. The result is great. Under his help, I finally make up my mind of career direction and secured my ideal position in a month. I recommend Stephen’s service to anyone who needs help on career direction.

    I met Stephen Howard when looking for a new job after career switch. We had a long discussion about my previous career and the new intended path. After the discussion Stephen provided me with suggestions how to better prepare for job interview, how to expand my LinkedIn and professional network and revised my resume and cover letter. He was attentive, provided valuable information and was compassionate and motivating. The revised documents were a major improvement and I have found a new position very quickly.

    You’ll be really impressed at the first meeting with Stephen, He pays close attention to what you say during sessions, Stephen’s positive attitude and the respect others feel toward him are palpable. I sincerely appreciate the time he spent reviewing my career goals and recommending strategies for achieving them.

    Stephen really takes the time to understand your needs – often when you aren’t clear about them yourself. With good insight, creative thinking and just the right amount of pressure he has a clever way bringing about fabulous results. I would highly recommend his services.

    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.
