Struggling to secure interviews with your current resume?

I get it. Before becoming a professional resume writer, I was a bit worried about writing my own resume and cover letter when job hunting.   

Because I didn’t know how to write an effective resume that would get me interviews.   

But without a solid resume, all my hard work of applying for jobs was a big waste of time. So I invested in a professional resume writing course.   

Since then, most of my resumes have landed me interviews.

And now, with 15+ years of experience as a professional resume writer, I’ll write an engaging and persuasive resume and cover letter for you.

Hi, I’m Susan, your resume consultant

I’m Susan Smyth (pronounced sm-eye-th).

And I get it. I’ve been there, too.

Early in my career, I was constantly applying for jobs.

Sending out dozens and dozens of applications.

Wondering what I was doing wrong.

Not getting phone calls for interviews.

It left me frustrated and I didn’t know what to do.

But when I discovered how to write an effective resume, I started landing interviews.

The sense of relief was amazing.

With 15+ years of experience as a professional resume writer, I know what employers and recruiters want.

I’ll market you as the best candidate with an engaging, value-packed resume and a persuasive cover letter.

Whether you’re going back to work, considering a career change or looking for a promotion, I can help you.

Why?

Because I love helping people get their dream job.

When my clients tell me they got an interview and landed the job, it makes my heart sing.

It’s a pleasure and a privilege to make a positive difference in people’s lives.

“Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.”

Guarantee

I provide professional resume and cover letter writing services, focusing on high-quality and engaging content.

I can’t guarantee you a job due to the many factors influencing the application process.

However, I can guarantee a resume that makes you stand out and boosts your interview prospects.

Your investment

I know you’re wondering how much this will cost.

But let me ask you a question.

What’s the cost if your current resume fails to impress an employer?

It’s more than just a financial investment; it’s an emotional investment in your time, your peace of mind, and your future income.

Using a subpar resume can lead to prolonged job searches, frustration from not hearing from employers, and the potential hit to your future earnings.

Are you willing to take that risk?

When you use my resume writing services, you’ll receive a professionally crafted resume and a persuasive cover letter.

This isn’t just a document; your resume is a valuable marketing tool to help you gain an interview.

By being prepared, you can seize exciting opportunities early on and confidently advance in your career.

PLUS:

  • You can use your new resume for future jobs and promotions, AND
  • Your cover letter can be used as a template for future jobs.

The investment in a resume and cover letter is a small price compared to the salary you’ll earn.

Can you really afford not to make this investment in your future?

Frequently asked questions

Why should I use a professional resume writer?

Wondering why you should choose a professional resume writer?

If your current resume isn’t securing those sought-after interviews, it’s time for a change.

Modern resumes are more than just a chronological history – they’re strategic marketing documents.

With my expertise as a resume writer, I understand what employers and recruiters are looking for.

Let me tailor your resume to accentuate your strengths and make you stand out in the competitive job market.

Can’t I just use AI as my resume writer?

Human expertise makes a difference.

I ask specific questions to extract your value, and use this information to help you stand out.

I understand what employers and recruiters want, and I keep up to date with current resume writing practices.

As a result, I craft engaging and persuasive resumes to attract employers’ and recruiters’ attention.

With my help, you’ll not only secure more interviews but also get multiple job offers and be in a strong position to negotiate your salary.

I also offer valuable advice on the job search process, job applications, and interviews.

What is ATS?

Applicant tracking systems (ATS) are software programs that scan resumes for keywords. They search for specific skills, training, and professional experience. Even before a person looks at a resume, ATS software chooses which ones advance to the next stage. Some formatting styles are difficult to read by ATS software. All resumes I write are ATS-friendly and keyword optimised, ensuring you’re set up for success in the application process.

What's the process?

Contact me to let me know which package you need. I’ll invoice you and after you’ve paid, I’ll email you a questionnaire to complete. I’ll use your information to create a resume to showcase your value and expertise. You’ll receive a draft within 3-5 business days. You have one (1) round of revisions to make any changes. After the final amends are made, I’ll email all documents in Word and PDF.

I need my resume urgently. Can you help me?

If my schedule allows it, I can. I’ll write your resume and cover letter within three days, but you’ll be charged a rush fee of 25%. This does not include LinkedIn profiles or key selection criteria.

Can we meet in person?

I’m an online business in Perth, Western Australia, so I only work remotely.

However, being an online and phone-based service, I provide professional resume writing services to clients Australia-wide.

You can still expect the same personalised and effective service, no matter where you’re located.
