    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 I sent Cheryn my outdated resume and she reconfigured and transformed it and generally made me more competitive.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.

    I recently sought the assistance of Cheryn Porter via Successful Resumes to more fully understand what employers and recruiters are seeking. The service Cheryn provides is professional, timely and of the highest quality. Cheryn took a strategic approach and assisted in editing, structuring and formatting my application as required to give me the best chance of being noticed and selected for interview. I am happy to say that with my first application submitted following Cheryn’s professional editing and advice I was selected for interview and was successful in gaining a position that suits my education, skills and experience. I have no hesitation in recommending Cheryn’s services to anyone seeking highly knowledgeable and constructive assistance in improving their applications

    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.

    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.
