Résumés & Cover Letters


Everyone’s career history and experiences are unique and I love spending the time to find out more about you and exactly what you do to create a professional and personalised career profile. My aim is to showcase you at your best. If you are after a graphically designed résumé then we may not be the right fit. I focus on the content. I maximise the use of prime ‘real estate’ on your résumé and ensure to optimise the use of space, showcasing the most important aspects on the first page (whilst not overcrowding the content). I will re-write and revamp your résumé in a clear and concise way to ensure your experience can be interpreted by the reader and in the minimum timeframe you have to impress them.

How it works:

Are you ready to start applying for your ideal role and would love to ensure your résumé /CV is optimised and looking it’s best.

Do you have an existing résumé that hasn’t been ‘touched up’ in a long time, you feel it’s a tad dated and needs a revamp or let’s face it, a complete overhaul.

Can’t find your old résumé or simply don’t have one, that’s ok. I’ll send you a form to complete to gather what I need to get started. No need in wasting valuable time on the phone chatting through the basics, I want the juicy stuff.
