Certified Total Resumes Writer

Expert resume writing and career coaching services to entry-level through executive clientele in the global marketplace by certified Total Resumes Writer!

Did you know that on average, every corporate job opening attracts 250 resumes, just 4 to 6 people will be selected for interview, and only 1 will be offered a job?

Did you know employers report strong competition for top, executive-level talent?

Did you know that 80% of resumes are rejected in less than 6 seconds?

Imagine if you could dramatically increase your likelihood of being shortlisted for an interview.

Investment or Cost

How long does it take for a professional resume to pay for itself?
How much income are you losing every day that you are looking for work?
Just divide your annual salary by 52 weeks, and divide that by 5 days per week and there’s your answer.

Example 1

Office Administrator | TAS – former salary = $55,000 annually ÷ 52 = $1057/week ÷ 5 days = $211 per day in lost wages.

Investing $449 in a Professional Resume Package, paid for itself in just over 2 days.

Example 2

Sales Manager | VIC – former salary = $100,000 annually ÷ 52 = $1923/week ÷ 5 days = $384 per day in lost wages.

Investing $649 in a Management Resume Package, paid for itself in less than 2 days.

The question is….can you afford NOT to have a professional resume developed?

Food for Thought

Did you know that resume writing is an unregulated industry in Australia? So literally anyone can set up business as a resume writer and claim to be an expert in the field. Are you willing to put your career and earning potential in the hands of just anyone? NO WAY! That’s why all of the writers at Total Resumes are highly experienced, certified professional resume writers, with additional qualifications in a diverse range of professions.

Competitive Job Market

It’s a competitive market out there with 40,000 new resumes being added to Monster.com each DAY; Many companies receiving hundreds and frequently thousands of unsolicited resumes each week (Google receives 1,500 per day); 45% of surveyed employees stating they are looking for new and better employment positions.

I am very happy to recommend Carolyn to anyone requiring assistance with a resume, cover letter or employment application. Not only is Carolyn extremely adept in this area with wonderful communication and presentation skills she demonstrated great insight regarding the current requirements of recruiters and potential employers. She is a very lovely person who takes a very genuine interest in her clients and is an example to us all of how customer service should be. Working with Carolyn made the task of showcasing my skills and experience very easy thanks to her professionalism, commitment and dedication to the task. The finished result was perfectly tailored for my purposes and I would not hesitate to engage Carolyn again or to recommend her services to others.
Ed, Operations Manager

Having been in the same job for the last 8+ years the thought of producing my resume was extremely daunting for me - until I found Carolyn. Carolyn was simply outstanding. Dealing with Carolyn was seamless, prompt and to put it simply - just so easy! When I received my completed resume, I was totally overwhelmed with how Carolyn had captured not only my strengths and competencies, but amazingly she captured the essence of me, who I am as a person - what I represent as my 'own brand'. I couldn't recommend Carolyn highly enough to anyone needing their resume created from scratch, or to have their resume revamped, you will not be disappointed.
Janet, Customer Experience Manager
Port Lincoln SA
I must express the professionalism and attention to detail when working with Carolyn. I could see in the end result, the time and effort that was put into the content for my resume. I would certainly recommend dealing with Carolyn. The end result was certainly worth it for me.
Sally, Executive Personal Assistant

WOW! When I read the resume you created for me it brought a tear to my eye. Seeing myself on paper was quite overwhelming. Thank you so much. I am very happy.
Rachael, Administration Officer….NOW Employment Services Consultant
Hobart TAS
I engaged Total Resumes to write a professional resume on my behalf and to say I was impressed is an understatement. My employment history was dull and I didn’t believe that I had achieved anything outside of my job description. When I read my resume for the first time I was amazed. I would have hired myself on the spot!! I highly recommend Carolyn to anyone looking for further their career. Her resumes are 5 star and get results.
Jane, HR Manager
Wagga Wagga NSW
I just wanted to say thank you once again for the wonderful resume and letter you created for me. I applied for a management position with ***** **** and I’m over the moon to let you know that not only was I selected for interview, but I got the job. YAY go me!! The store owner said that my resume was the best she has ever seen and that she knew she wanted to meet me as soon as she read my application. That’s saying something for someone that has only ever had 2 jobs. I can’t thank you enough. I will be recommending you to everyone I speak to.
Anna-Belle, Retail Manager
Campbelltown SA
I highly recommend Total Resumes to anyone in need of a quality resume. I had been a chef with the one company for 12 years and was looking for a career change. Working with Carolyn made the process simple. She produced an outstanding resume for me that highlighted things that I hadn’t even thought of. When faced with the challenge of applying for jobs that were using my current skills but very much outside my expertise I had no idea where to start. When I attempted to write my own resume I got as far as my name and address but had no idea what to write next. I am pleased to say that I now have confidence in my skills and experience and my new resume has enhanced my career.
Rodney, Chef….NOW Workplace Trainer and Assessor

I engaged with Carolyn to create my resume. I was moving interstate and had not had the need for a resume for the past twenty eight years. Carolyn compiled all of my information to create a resume that was perfectly suited to my needs. I was able to gain employment soon after my relocation and was fortunate enough to secure the position I was after. I would recommend Carolyn for anyone who needs their resume to be updated or completed.
Karen, Sales Manager
Bunbury, WA
Hello Carolyn,Thank-you so much for your stellar effort. I am absolutely thrilled with the documents. I am blown away by the service I have received. I cannot believe the overwhelming support and professionalism you have demonstrated. The after-hours service and also the work you have completed over the week-end.Carolyn, I honestly thought customer service and individuals that care about their work as much as I do were a thing of the past. Thank-you so much for proving me wrong.You have not only restored my confidence in customer service and pride in ones work, you have more importantly restored the confidence in myself with your beautifully constructed documents.I cannot thank-you enough......
