Principal – Profile

I take an ineffective resume and turn it into a power-packed personal campaign–defining your brand and showcasing you as the obvious choice.

As an executive resume expert who has carved a strong reputation in the resume industry, I’ve helped thousands of rising stars and executives ascend to the next step on the career ladder.

For 10+ years, I have developed interview winning career marketing documents for a range of occupations: from unskilled to highly skilled; management and executive level, career change, return to work and graduates.

I love helping clients tell their story and build a POWERFUL professional brand. As a Certified Executive Resume Master, I am proud to be part of a select group of writers that are truly the “best of the best”. Certified as some of the top writers in the industry, creating power-packed documents that will make you say, “WOW!! Is this really me? I’d hire me!”

My goal is to make this a fun and easy experience for you. You provide me with the best information you can and I do the rest. So, sit back, relax, and get excited about your career!

  • What’s unique about my expertise and services?

    Not only do I create outstanding, masterpiece resumes recognised by my peers, executive recruiters, clients, and hiring managers for a remarkably analytical and powerful style, I also understand the job market and the intensity of a job search – having worked in employment services and recruitment for many years. In addition, I’ve elicited information from even the most restrained of clients… resulting in resumes that provide clients just like you with a competitive edge by capturing your particular vision, work style, brand, energy, and accomplishments.

    Extensive recruitment expertise provides me with a unique understanding of precisely what employers and recruiters look for in candidates, resumes and job applications. Having assisted many Govt. and private organisations with their recruitment needs, I am familiar with the complexities involved with pre-screening and short listing applicants.

  • Why should you choose my resume writing practice over others?

    I brand your background in a unique way by focusing on the strategic value behind your work… persuasively and succinctly marketing you as THE solution to the needs of employers.

    My thoroughness, attention to detail, and ability to fact-find are legendary! Clients quickly find out that I’m never satisfied with the status quo, and that I believe in teaching you to leverage every weapon you have in today’s aggressive job market.

    In fact, I arm job hunters with a wealth of knowledge, ensuring that you have all the tools and resources necessary for a successful job search. A carefully crafted resume is just the start.

    I offer you outstanding credentials and a global reputation, with these advantages.

    • Thousands of successfully employed clients at start-up, Fortune-ranked and mid-sized firms.
    • High success rate landing interviews for CIO, CEO, CTO, COO, CFO, SVP & other job hunters.
    • Multiple certifications and Master-level training through Career Directors International (CDI).
      As I am sure you are aware, the resume writing industry is unregulated in Australia and the marketplace is FULL of selfappointed resume writersMy skills have been assessed by the Career Directors International and found to be of a high standard.
    • Published in career bestsellers.
    • Qualified Workplace Trainer and Assessor with experience in one-to-one and group facilitation.
