We want to tell your story with a professional resume

With his new Successful Resume, Zevi Kramer, technology expert and leadership trainer landed an interview with the world’s leading performance management firm Gallup. He emailed us to say “The difference between you and others is that others rearrange. You created me. You showed what’s possible”

We love how Zevi articulated the essence of Successful Resumes because it reflects exactly what we aim to do for each and every client. We partner with our clients to build a resume that really reflects who they are and what they offer. Understanding our clients and where they want to be in a year or even ten years helps us deliver resumes that authentically tells their story and positions them for the future they want.

We work with people across all occupations and all industries. From apprentices and graduates starting their career journey to senior leaders ready to transition to Board positions. We work with people who have been with the same company for more than 20 years and clients who have found a new role every two years. Regardless of your career path, we offer the expertise to present it in a way that best promotes you.

We take enormous pride in the amazing opportunities our clients have been able to seize with their successful resume. Below is a small sample of testimonials from delighted clients.

Good evening Kel,

Wow I would employ me.. or at least interview!
Thank you, it is a fabulous resume, updates and impressive.
Would love to discuss minor details any time to suit you tomorrow.
Thank you.


Success! I won my position in the Graduate Program! I just wanted to thank you again for the very professional resume you completed for me a few months ago now. I really appreciate all the work and creativity you put into the resume which secured me the interview and gave me confidence to get the job.

Happy with the service provided and the questions asked to best present who I am in a Resume format.

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.

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.

Thanks for your prompt response and helping me out with such a short turnaround to update my resume and prepare the application for the elite coaching role. I am much more confident now I can present myself in the best way.

I am very happy with the service and professionalism you displayed whilst preparing my resume. Whilst I haven’t physically met you, your bubbly personality certainly came through on the phone and through emails. You were able to find solutions where others couldn’t. I am very happy with the resulting resume and look forward to putting it to the test!

Thank you for your work and commitment Dunja. Not only were your writing skills amazing, but you were also very supportive and encouraging during the process. I wish I could meet you in person to have a coffee or something, you are such a nice person. Thank you again for your service and support. – Priya 

I cannot express enough how wonderful Louise was with me. Her professionalism, understanding and patience was truly outstanding. From the beginning, she explained to me what to expect throughout the process and I always felt very comfortable in asking her questions or anything I didn’t understand.

Dunja was great to work with. I had very tight deadlines and Dunja exceeded my expectations. I now have a very professional CV that clearly articulates my skills and attributes. Thank you again, Jacquie.

Hello Col, I’m glad I called you to assist with my resume. While the job is a little way from home, I’m finally able to use my degree.

Dee Bendo is a talented coach, resume writer and LinkedIn guru – She made me realise how significant all my professional achievements are and seeing it presented in a professionally designed document made me feel even more comfortable approaching any employer. Dee is engaging and easy to work with because she is such a professional with expertise in the HR and Coaching arena. She went above and beyond to support me achieve my next career step. Working with her has been a great opportunity to grow professionally as her knowledge of the industry is far-reaching especially in interview skills, networking and negotiations. Thank you Dee!!!

I want to thank Peter in helping me update my CV after 6 years. I didn’t realise how out of date my own CV was. Peter’s final copy looked amazing, really professional and gives me an increased level of confidence to submit to any prospective employer. He also spent additional time helping me in preparing a proper cover letter and the use of the STAR principle when completing the Essential Selection Criteria. Overall, my job application looks contemporary and professional and should give me a much improved chance in securing employment. Thanks again Peter, you were an absolute pleasure to deal with and thanks for all your help.

“Just wanted to let you know that the two jobs I applied for I didn’t get as I think my interview skills need some work. But the job I wanted I did get and then secured another one…  So I now have two casual jobs at the XYZ university which is 10 minutes from home. So thank you again and will refer you to others.”

Hi Lucy, I’ve just received my resume …. Your work is terrific! I must also let you know that I start my new job 9.00am on Monday! I went for 2 interviews and won both. Thanks so much for all your help in getting me to this stage and for the great after sales care!

Thank you, thank you! You have achieved, in the first draft, a resume I am already so proud of! WOW, I couldn’t be happier…..What a difference it makes to have someone who knows how to make fantastic upgrades to a very simple CV. I’m so grateful!

Cannot speak highly enough of Nadean’s services. I haven’t had to do a resume in over 30 years. Great communication, quick service, and a great professional product. I have got two interviews from my first two applications. Thoroughly recommend getting your “old school” resume into a professional modern document

My resume was in desperate need of help when I went to see Louise. She pulled my experiences and qualifications in to a professional document that ultimately helped me effect a career change and launch my own business. Louise is competent, efficient and supportive. I highly recommend her services.

There was no stone left unturned when it came to her professionalism, Sharon provided some amazing suggestions, she translated my ideas into a content that I would never have thought possible, my resume was nothing short of fabulous. I submitted my new resume the day after receiving it and was accepted for the position. I am extremely grateful to Sharon for her amazing effort.

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.

“Maya worked on updating my CV, cover letter and LinkedIn profile and was extremely professional, helpful, prompt and knowledgeable. I was so so happy with the end result and the speed at which I received it ensuring I was ready to go in the job market. I would highly recommend Maya.”

Just wanted to drop you a note and thank you for the piece of work that you have just finished for me. I am very happy with the quality and the initial response from the recruiter has been positive.

I just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you for all your work on updating my resume and other documents, it has made a real impact on the job front. I got called for 3 interviews and am excited to say I’ve been offered a role which I start tomorrow!

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

You have been marvelous. I have just spent the afternoon ‘adjusting’ slightly the wonderful resume you made for me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Money well spent.

Hi Martin Hope you are well mate, and I’m more than happy to keep referring people to you, couldn’t recommend you enough. …Thanks again for all your help which allowed me to break into the corporate market.

Hi Chris, Thanks for all your efforts with my new resume. I’ll let all the guys know just how professional you are. You were very prompt and easy to deal with. Thanks a lot. Kind regards, Graham, Leading Hand Carpenter

Brilliant thanks so much Neale! Fingers crossed.

Hi Martin, Thank you for your time & efforts; the end product speaks for itself. It would have taken me months to try and put my experience into words, thank you; it is top quality!….We will certainly keep you in mind for referrals.

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 am just emailing you to let you know I was successful in my application… Thank you so much for your help with my resume, I truly believe without your help I would not have even got an interview.

Just wanted to drop you a quick note letting you know that I was successful in getting a job offer. They are emailing it through to me as we speak. Thank you as well for the interview information, I was asked three of the top 10 interview questions so I felt very confident with my answers …. Your selection criteria and cover letter got my foot in the door and made me stand out from the other 66 resumes they saw.

Success at last! I got the job as a Medical Receptionist / Practice Nurse. I’m sure it was because of your beautiful resume. Thank you soooo much.

Exceptional service and so accommodating to have a resume and multiple cover letters written for a job application deadline. Highly recommend Louise

Thought I’d let you know I’ve been offered (and accepted) the role you assisted with application for. It was probably one of the more intense (if not the most) interview but with a super quick recruitment process following. Thanks again for your assistance. The panel commented on the high quality of my application.

Thank you for all your help with my resume and cover letter. I received a call from the agency on Friday, and had a quick interview that morning. Looking at an interview with the General Manager IT for the company this week.

I am very happy with the draft, both overall impression and the detail. You are clearly a master of your art. I will be recommending you to the masses.

Thank you so much for your very professional service and I am delighted with the final result. The quality documents you created, combined with your advice, has really helped.

Great thanks Allan – received at least 7 – 8 LinkedIn requests today, it’s really working. If I hear of anyone else who needs help I will put your name forward.

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

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all your work in getting me ready to start applying for some part time positions. Your promptness and professionalism is greatly appreciated.

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.

Both documents look really good, definitely reads a lot better than anything I could have ever written on my own. I don’t see anything that needs changing in the letter, all looks fabulous.

Good Morning Martin, (We) would like to say a massive THANK YOU!! The resume you provided has resulted in our dream job, not only that, he has been contacted by several other companies about work – amazing!! One employer even commented on how great the resume was and that it was stand out within a big group of applicants. Totally worth every dollar, a great investment in our future!! We have recommended you to a friend and will continue to do so with absolute confidence. So thank you again.

I got the job with Defence. Thank you so much for your help. There were no interviews for this position it was totally based on the answers to the selection criteria which hit the spot dead on.

Thank you for all of the work you did, the documents look great and have answered the questions very well. Thank you again Noel, it was lovely working with you and I will recommend your services and use them again in the future.

Hi Martin, you are a champion! Brilliant! Exactly what I was looking for… Thank you. You have been a tremendous help to me at short notice. I will be sure to pass on your details to others I know needing similar assistance.

Thanks to you I got the job! This has changed my life – you have no idea ….. Thank you…

Nicole made the process very easy, asking all of the right questions in order to draw out key details in a very efficient way.

“I couldn’t more highly recommend Dee who did my resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile. She is professional and very good at what she does. I have had comments from employers that I have gone for interviews for about how professional and good my resume is. She has great interpersonal skills and asks a lot of questions to ensure your resume reflects your experience. She also provided me with many interview tips which were very useful.” Lawyer / Finance Investigator
