“When I called Tara, I didn’t really even know what to ask! Within a few minutes, she had assessed my situation, worked out the gaps in my approach and advised on how she could assist me with a professional resume and coaching on how to achieve my career goals.  This gave me the clarity and confidence to get ahead in my career.”  Kirsten – Nursing Professional

Detailed Application Review

Our Resume Review Service Removes the Unknown

How do you know if your resume is right for your industry, today’s electronic screening tools, too long or too short, selling your strengths well enough? Find out why so you can improve your success.

In today’s economic climate, more than ever you need your application to stand out from the rest but quite often the reason that you′re not being shortlisted is because something in your application is letting you down. But how do you know what it is?

Our professional resume critiquing service locates your application’s weak spots and gives you absolute clarity on how to improve it by suggesting changes that you can implement yourself.  This can mean the difference between getting to the next step in the recruitment process, or not.

Did you know that the average time a recruiter or employer takes just 6 seconds (yes 6!) to review your resume in the first read, and that’s without adding in ATS (Applicant Tracking Systems) technology that many companies now use to electronically screen your application documents before a human pair of eyes even gets to see it. No, I’m not kidding!

This service includes: A review of your resume + application letter or a review of your Seek Profile / LinkedIn profile

At an affordable $190+gst, we will review your resume and provide you with clear directions on what to change to improve your success.  (Please note: Many clients decide to have us rewrite their resume, half way through the consultation, so if you order the Major Overhaul or Premium Value resume, the fee will be credited against this purchase)

Once you have made the changes to your resume, we can do a second review and provide feedback again if you wish to be absolutely certain that you have got it right. $60+gst

“Since making adjustments on Tara’s clear recommendations, I have 2 interviews lined up and had call backs from recruiters.  I really appreciated receiving honest and practical feedback from someone as experienced as Tara.  I definitely recommend her services to everyone!”  Cheryl – Property Professional

I was offered a job yesterday with a call centre, I have been offered another job today with a car servicing place…it’s amazing!  The last few months I wasn’t able to get anything, and now it pours…thanks to Tara’s advice.  I couldn’t have done it without her!  Tania Williams – Executive Assistant

“A former work college suggested Taras services to help get my resume and work social networks in order. Tara’s personalised service is fantastic after some over the phone meetings to speak about my experience, Tara sent me my updated resume. The wording and simplified format all looked and read great. Tara also helps with application letters which again are all personalised and tailored for the job in question. I rate Tara’s services very highly. Recently a position I applied for had over 3000 applicants. To get an interview with that high volume of candidates highlights the quality of the documents provided.” Dan Green – IT Professional

Writing a CV on your own is a right pain in the proverbial, especially as I was trying to re-pitch myself after a career change.  After only two discussions, Tara managed to produce exactly the right kind of CV for my profession, which is remarkable!  Tara is very patient, easy to talk to and a great listener and I would recommend her service to anyone looking for a fresh, creative perspective.” Marcus O’Higgins, TESOL Educator
