An Experienced Resume Writer You Can Trust!


Recently I was asked by a client for their own peace of mind, about my experience and skills in resume writing and employment services. And rightly so! Before anyone hands over money for a resume writing service or any other service for that matter, they have the right to know who is doing the job for them and how credible they really are. This client prompted me to write an article about myself (vain I know) for everyone to read and acknowledge my ability to write a professional and personalized resume that sells to a prospective employer in whatever industry they may be in. 

At the age of 25, I now have over 6 years’ varied experience in the Employment Services and Training Industry. I have worked for Job Services Australia as a Recruitment Consultant and now Disability Employment Services as a Disability Employment Services Consultant assisting local people with Mental Health disabilities in gaining sustainable and gainful employment and being part of that process right from initial registration through to post placement and on-going support. My background in the training sector has been as a Business Development Manager. Moving into employment services, I combined my marketing and business development experience to be effective in building loyal relationships with employers and other stakeholders critical to the success of my clients.

Over the years I have developed extensive skills and techniques from reading numerous books and trialing different approaches in Resume & Cover Letter Writing, LinkedIn Profile Writing, Addressing Selection Criterias, Applying for Jobs online and Career Coaching. My industry experience is so vast and spread out and includes jobs in Mining, Construction, Administration, Health Care, Manufacturing, Retail, Security Services, CEO and Executive level and so many more industries.

I understand what employers want and how to communicate effectively to them. I know how to properly read a job advertisement and interpret what they really want and then address this in the cover letter. This has proved very successful and my testimonials will prove that. I am aware that applying for work shouldn’t be rushed and that employers can tell if you are just sending out your resume for the sake of it. This applies to all employers and jobs whether they be in Melbourne or Perth or in the Pilbara region of Northern WA.

Writing Selection Criteria’s can also be very difficult for people because it is so time consuming and there may be so much you want to say but if you do go on then it will be far too long and may not be read thoroughly. To key to writing a good and effective Selection Criteria is to keep it to the point and give the employer just enough information that leave’s them wanting to know more.  For each criteria, you should have around 1 to 2 examples maximum proving that you have met the criteria in your past employment. Each criteria should have a paragraph with an introduction, body and conclusion.

My academic is a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Economics at Curtin University of Western Australia and a Graduate Certificate in Career Education and Development at RMIT University.
