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 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.

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!

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.

The resume has been a success. I have had a lot of interviews since I have sent it out. I will definitely send people your way should they need their resume updated

Not only have you provided an amazing CV, you have given me some very good job advice which has gone above and beyond my expectations. I will be sure to pass colleagues and friends onto you as I am 100% confident in the service you provide. Many thanks.

I have used Deana twice for my resume. She is highly professional and very helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. Her patience and expertise and attention to detail are outstanding. Her prompt and very quick turn-around was really appreciated. Deana’s enthusiasm and energy and customer care skills are excellent. Deana is the person I will keep coming back to for future help. I have gained both employment and interviews and I will definitely recommend her to anyone who needs help with their resume, Deana is a delight to do business with.

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.

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.

I can't thank you enough for what you have achieved in such a short amount of time. The resume looks grand; I am SO pleased with it. It will be my pleasure to recommend your services to friends and colleagues! I will definitely let you know how I get on with the process and outcome… I am up against some very experienced professionals. It has been so lovely meeting and working with you. You have such a gift! Thank you.

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 got the job! The gallery phone today and I start next week. Thank you!!! The interview training really helped improve my confidence and now i have the job I’ve always wanted!

My resume is perfect! After such a long gap having children I did not know where to start! You have restored my confidence and honed in on my past experience and skills.

Just a quick note to advise that I have been successful! I will commence next Monday as a permanent employee ending my six-year drought as a contractor. Thank you for your ear and time to re-write my resume and produce an appropriate genuine cover letter that reflected my experience and who I am. I was confident when I put forward the application and the rest was a breeze. Again much appreciated and I felt you were the right person the minute I met you.

Your professional ability to assess and document my personal profile, skills, and experience in my resume together with her empowering and motivating personality, contributed to my securing a new sales role.

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.

Phil, After two years trying by myself, my first application with your resume and cover letter and I have a job interview this Friday. I cannot thank you enough.

I am very happy with the outcome of my Professional Portfolio that was created for me. I was under a lot of pressure to get this Portfolio to a casting agent and Carol delivered, no matter how big or difficult the changes I requested. Carol is the real thing. She listens and asks questions to ensure that I was happy with the final result. Carol personalised my Portfolio to suit my personality and purpose. No other service, I believe, can offer this warmth, compassion and drive to see you achieve your highest goal, whether it is to prepare you for an interview or general advice to assist with your future development

Certainly made a difficult job a lot easier. Thanks Phil couldn’t have got here without your assistance.

Just wanted to let you know that next week I start work as the station officer having been successful in my application for the position. Thank you once again for all your help.

I found Louise to be extremely efficient and thorough, drawing out detailed and relevant information when updating my Resume. The letter and resume writing was of an extremely high standard and tailored brilliantly to suit the position that I was applying for. I can highly recommend this service.

Thanks for the PDFs and Word documents. The resume looks great!

Nicole was extremely warm, efficient and professional. I have already highly recommended Nicole to others, she took my documents rebadged them and produced outstanding results.

Both the cover letter and my resume are perfect, thank you. I know the amount of work you have put into their presentation was considerable and this reflects in their truthful streamlined simplicity

I hadn’t thought of doing a professional resume until I applied for a position within the company I work with and discovered that due to the volume of applicants – 270 people – I was culled merely due to my resume not having a professional presentation. I contacted Nadean via the website and on first contact I knew that I had the right person to assist me. Nadean was able to provide an up-to-date, professional resume within 2 days. Using her own experience within HR, Nadean was able to provide a detailed yet direct response to selection criteria, showing me how to correctly word my applications for the future. In essence what I’m trying to say is: if you want to present a professional image from the start that will encompass all your abilities and talents providing an accurate picture to your prospective employer – contact Nadean!

Hi Sandy, I'm honestly very impressed...thank you very much. I can't think of any more additions. I can see immediately how you have made my Resume more succinct and punchy!

Martin. I trust all is well with you mate. Due to your work I have got my job in Darwin with Monadelphous …. Thank you for everything and I shall be sure to keep spreading the word about your great service .

Just wanted to let you know I got the job and start as Operation Manager in a few weeks. Thanks again for all your help.

Martin, This e-mail is to inform you of how exceptionally pleased I am with the high quality resume you produced for me recently……..I signed up for my new role as a Senior Process Engineer with an international manufacturing company last week. I am in no doubt that my new employer’s initial interest…..was a result of the very professional and extremely well laid out and presented resume that you produced for me. It is a credit to your skills and abilities that you can utilise someone’s experience and input to produce such an accurate portrayal of that person and their employment history whilst highlighting how much they can offer prospective new employers. It definitely worked in this case. Thank you very much once again.

You gave me the best resume that I have ever had. Your brilliant resume truly reflects who I am but I could never present it so well. It boosted my confidence and you made me believe in my abilities. I have told everyone about you and will continue to do so because you made a huge difference to me and my career! I have successfully secured my dream job and cannot thank you enough not only for my resume but for your professionalism, guidance and availability whenever I need your advice.

I can't thank you enough, the job you have done with my resume is absolutely outstanding!

Yesterday I was appointed the position of General Manager after a very long interview and presentation process. Your invaluable services clearly assisted and I thank you very much for your efforts. That puts you 2 from 2 for me! Well done. It’s a credit to what you do.

Sandy you have done a wonderful job, put me on the right track and picked up things I did not realize had to go into the application for a Manager. I am sending it off straight away!

I loved the resume! It looks fantastic, it really does. I am quite excited about it. So much of the info is presented so well, I am so glad I found you! Seriously, thank you for the great job.

I have applied for nearly 30 roles this year and have not heard a thing. The first time I sent the letter and resume you prepared, I made it to the interview

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.

Resume looks great and so happy with the criteria! I really did not understand how to approach the selection criteria and was really out of my depth. Thanks for helping me understand the process and getting me on track for applying for graduate positions.

Good afternoon John!

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas and are enjoying the New Year so far!

Just thought I would update you on the Australian Wool Innovation job that you helped me with. After over 2 months of an application process and 2 trips back and forward from Sydney for interviews & assessments, I found out a week or so ago that I GOT THE JOB!!

Incredibly excited (and amazed to be honest) that I got the role, and you no doubt take a lot of credit for your help in getting my application kick started with a fantastic résumé. I can’t thank you enough!

All the best for you and your family in 2018, thank you again for your help!

Ellie Bigwood, Farm Hand, Regional WA

Just wanted to let you know I got the interview! Thank you so much for your help with my resume. I really feel good about it now. Thank you also for creating a document that is so user friendly, I can even update it in the future!

Just to let you know that I got the job. I was the only one in my section that managed to retain my job. My Manager said that I had submitted a great application and performed really well in the interview. Thank you for all your help and saving me from redundancy. I will definitely recommend you to my friends.

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.

Thank you so much for the new cover letter, resume and LinkedIn profile!! They are fabulous and I am very, very pleased with the excellent job you have done. I realise that my resume was tricky to complete as there were so many different sections, styles, techniques to cover. You have done a wonderful job and it is a very impressive document! I would highly recommend you to anyone that was needing a resume put together.

I have been offered a job as a Property Manager with the real estate company of my choice. I wish to thank you for your expert advice with LinkedIn. I wish you every success with your future

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.

Hi Sandy, I just wanted to let you know I have been selected for the principals job. I could not have got there without your work in preparing the cover letter, resume and selection criteria. I did not realize the scope of the task and appreciate the many hours and phone calls to ensure we covered every detail.

There is no way I could have presented my resume like this – absolutely fantastic

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.

Thanks again for all your assistance. With your help, I not only obtained the interview I was after, but have been promoted into the management position I was hoping for. The discussions with you helped bring to the forefront the experiences and examples I needed to discuss at the interview. Money well spent.

Thanks Kell…..I'm absolutely speechless…I've never seen such an amazing looking resume and to think that it is about me….I'm over the moon with my resume

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Louise. She gave me so much confidence in myself to apply for jobs as a recent graduate. I am very happy with the service as she was always quick to respond to emails and completing the service.

Thank you Peter for assistance in developing a new resume for me to begin the transition from hospitality into community support services. I am so pleased to inform you that your work sparked their interest in me. I was offered a position. I would like to thank you from the depths of my heart for sharing your knowledge, skill and for showing such professionalism.

I just wanted to let you know I’ve accepted a job offer. I was able to choose between two really good firms and potentially a third. I’m still receiving calls and I’m happy to be the one turning them down! It’s a good to know that I don’t have to worry about securing a job. Thanks for all your help Lucy.
