Frequently Asked Questions 

Who is this course for?

If any of the following describes your current circumstances, then you will definitely benefit from this course. Active jobseekers who are frustrated by not getting interviews. People who are not currently looking for a new job but want to be prepared for when they do. Those that can't or don't want to pay resume writers hundreds of dollars. People who want to get control of their job search, learn a new skill and get an edge over their competition.

Who is this course not for?

This course won't work for you if you are any of the following. People who would rather do nothing and leave things to chance. Those who are not prepared to learn a new skill. People who are happy to keep paying resume writers for the rest of their working lives.

Is this service tax deductible?

Possibly. In many cases it is but that depends on where you are located. Please seek professional advice from your accountant.

How long do I have access?

You have continuous access to this course with no time restrictions. Work at your own pace and be assured that you can come back to it when you need to. You can binge-watch immediately, do it over a weekend, or spend longer to get it just right. It's your choice.

I've found a resume writer cheaper than than this course. Why should I buy this instead?

If a writer is promising to deliver a resume cheaper than the cost of this course we would truly doubt their ability and experience. Good resume writers know their worth and charge accordingly. Plus you will need to keep paying writers if you don't learn to do it yourself.

Can't I just use your free content and use that instead?

Yes, you can of course do that, but this course has a few important benefits. First, we can answer any questions you may have, second it has exclusive video tutorials that you can't get anywhere else, and third, it includes an in-depth one-on-one appraisal at the end.

Yes, you can write your own resume -

even if you've never done it before!

Pass the job to us so you can concentrate on yours

Start with an appraisal

It will be honest, it will be straight to the point and you will know exactly what we are going to do and why we are going to do it so there will be no surprises later on. 

A little bit of homework

We will  evaluate what's missing in your current format and request further information from you where necessary. Don't worry - we just need that core information - we will be doing the writing for you.

Receive first draft

We will want you to read it through and give us feedback on any areas that you want to expand. Often people remember other things to include at this stage and that is fine. 

Unlimited edits for 30 days

We want you to be completely happy with the finished product. That's why we give you a full 30 days of unlimited edits so that everything is just right.

Receive final versions

One resume just isn't enough these days. That's why we give you 2 - one graphically designed version for direct applications that makes you stand out from the crowd, and another version for online jobs so you won't get rejected by ATS.

I chose you to redo my CV as I wasn't having any luck with other 'professional' resume writers.

Within 2 days after receiving my new resume and using it for 4 job applications, I was interviewed twice in 3 days, once by a Department Manager and others by a recruiter and I have been working ever since!

CEO

Just like the majority out there, I believed I had an outstanding CV but my first interaction with Mark proved how far out of date my CV and therefore my thinking was.

Constructive criticism and a redesign has since led to a very professional looking CV. The difference was night and day.

Frequently Asked Questions 

How does it work?

We start by giving you an honest appraisal to tell you what we will do to improve your resume and why. Then we send you a little bit of homework so you can provide any extra information we need. Next we produce a first draft for you and you then have 30 days of unlimited edits. When you are happy, we send you your final copy plus eBooks.

How long does it take?

This depends on how quickly you get any requested additional information back to us plus how many resumes are booked in before yours. Our typical turnaround is 2 - 10 days but please let us know when you book if you have an urgent need (e.g. a position closing date) and we will do our best to get your resumes to you when you need them.

Is this service tax deductible?

Possibly. In many cases it is but that depends on where you are located. Please seek professional advice from your accountant.

Can you write my cover letter too?

Yes, we have 3 packages. Resume only, resume plus cover letter, and resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile makeover.

Can you help me with the job search process too?

You got straight to the point, and you were clear and honest. You provided me with a unique and personal review of my resume and you were the first person to explain practically what I can do to change it and importantly why. I really appreciated it.

My results have increased dramatically, and would say on average out of every 5 positions I apply for, I receive responses back on 2-3 positions which are awesome results. I have handed your details out to basically my whole work crew.
