“Tara is both professional and down to earth, when I first explained my situation, she suggested a package that suited my requirements and created a resume for me. Soon after, I started receiving interview calls and have secured a job. I’m lucky to have found her, if it was not for her expert guidance this process wouldn’t have been smooth sailing.

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!

Major Overhaul

(a completely overhauled document, or one written from scratch)

Major Overhaul

This is our most popular resume package.

Best if it’s been more than two years since yours was professionally written. Invest in an experienced resume writer to create your professional resume – a small outlay when compared to landing your dream role!

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 package includes a professional-style resume + a 1 page tailored cover letter which highlights your strengths for your chosen industry.  You may choose the letter to be written for an advertised job, or an expression of interest letter. This package includes:

  • 1:1 in-depth phone consultation (30-45mins)
  • Full content and layout re-write from scratch
  • 1 page application letter
  • eBook Written Interview tips & Client Success Pack

We present you as a stand-out candidate by packaging your skills, knowledge & experience in a way that makes you a stand-out candidate for your industry.  We develop an effective and impressive resume that showcases your abilities and experience and emphasises your employability.  Of course, having a fantastic resume is best supported with a cover letter that grabs the reader’s attention and actually invites them to read your resume!

When you are going after that new job make sure your resume isn′t peppered with flaws that you may not see, but your potential employer might. We make sure your resume reads well, has a good flow for you and your industry, is free of grammatical or spelling errors and showcases your talent and skills.

“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.
