Prepare Better – Perform Better
To be competitive in the job market you must differentiate yourself from the competition. Ray helps hundreds of clients each year to work their way through the recruitment process from resumes to interview skills to placement.
Also to get through applicant tracking systems and into the hands of decision-makers, it is important your resume is constructed in a specific way. Ray’s job is to craft resumes that tell the story of the value you bring, those skills and attributes that enable you to make a significant contribution.
Cover Letters that Perform
Ray writes cover letters that help his clients to connect positively with the reader from the outset.
Working together with your resume to address the requirements of the opportunity a skilfully prepared cover letter demonstrates that you have the skills and experience to perform to the highest levels in your new role.
LinkedIn Profile Production
Optimise the impact of your LinkedIn profile in digital space. LinkedIn is increasingly used as the sourcing ground of choice to communicate with prospective candidates. Ray works with clients to ensure alignment between their resume and digital profile crafting keyword-rich summaries and suggesting what skills are highlighted for endorsement by connections.
Selection Criteria Writing
Most government and some private sector roles require the submission of selection criteria responses to demonstrate the competencies to perform in a job. Ray works in collaboration with clients to explore their job history and extract compelling examples of skills to tell your story powerfully and professionally.
Transit Lounge Coaching – Bridging Futures
As a sounding-board, skills coach and facilitator, Ray works collaboratively with clients needing outplacement support.
People are not made redundant – their role within an organisation is. Unfortunately, many casualties of reorganisation often view their displacement from a negative perspective. Ray supports transit-lounge clients to view change positively assisting them to navigate through unfamiliar territory and follow a roadmap to better outcomes.
Skills Performance Coaching
Ray works with clients to tailor one on one interview coaching to help build confidence and improve performance.
Developing responses to challenging questions typically encountered in conversation, role-playing delivery drawing particular attention to the impact that stressful situations have on body language, breathing and the tendency to over-talk are all included in what is a value for money experience.

I worked with Ray on having my resume and cover letter up to scratch. Literally within the first week of having my new resume I started getting call backs! It was great! Ray was always so helpful by giving advice and helping me with any necessary changes, I'm so glad I went with this company!
I thought my resume and cover letter were pretty good until I saw what Ray produced for me. It made me realise why I was not getting any interest. With Ray's resume magic and helpful tips the phone started to ring. Thanks Ray for helping me get back into the land of paid employment.
Whilst the resume and cover letter Ray produced were great a relationship with Ray is more than just a product that gets results. Ray genuinely cares and has provided me with valuable coaching and advice since I first got him to write my resume. I still utilise his coaching skills when I need advice I can trust about my career decisions. Ray is very obliging and always makes me feel like I could rule the world.
I highly recommend Ray for resume and coaching services. It was a pleasure working with Ray; he is an expert in this field and a real creative thinker. Ray offered me invaluable career guidance and advice, and really helped structure my resume in a way that made it stand out. I'd recommend Ray to anyone, thanks Ray!
It was an absolute pleasure working with Ray, I highly recommend his services, he went out of his way to meet me and talk to me out of hours. Ray tirelessly worked through my CV, covering letters and LinkedIn profile well into the late evenings on many occasions, the outcome is a true testament to the quality work he guaranteed. Once again thanks for all the effort.
I approached Ray through a friend of mine to help me construct a professional resume. I found Ray to be engaging, cooperative with a nice friendly nature. I felt the one that I had put together myself was a little too old and out of fashion and not up to date in terms of professionalism that is required in this competitive market we operate in today. Ray used layout and content with bullets points to convey a succinct powerful message that was extremely easy to read and follow. Ray was first class on this project and the comments I have received are excellent and this certainly got me in front of prospective employers when looking for work...I am now employed. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ray to anybody who is thinking of updating their resume.
I am a Sales Professional who asked Ray at Successful Resumes to review my resume. My resume was 10 years old and badly needed the professional touch. Ray was really prompt. He adopted a simple approach. Within 2 days he made my old resume look like a brand new document. It was professional looking and certainly one that made my skills and attributes stand out. Plus he drafted a professional cover letter and updated my LinkedIn profile. All done in quick time. I can't speak highly enough for Successful Resumes. It was terrific value for money.
My profession covers both financial services and information technology and I was particularly impressed at how Ray was able to understand and articulate my skills and experience into a succinct and effective document. What you get with Ray is much more than just a resume writer; you will get someone who will listen to your story and craft a CV that represents who you are and what you bring to the table. Thank you Ray.
I recently retained Ray’s services to update my resume as I prepared to take the next step in my career. Not only is Ray friendly, professional and a pleasure to work with, he is also extremely knowledgeable and has a practical understanding of the mentality of an employer. The entire process was simple and painless and represents excellent value for money.
