April 2019 Update:
Please note – I am taking a break from the career services arm of my business. As such I will not be taking on any new clients at this stage. All existing clients will receive my full attention until their projects are complete.

Your resume is your job search marketing tool and you are the brand. Having a powerful, professional resume will increase your chances of getting the job you want.
Do you know that the primary aim of the resume is not to get you a job but get you an interview? Is your resume doing its job?
When was the last time you updated your resume? Are you tailoring it for every job you apply for? What does your current resume tell a potential employer about you?
I will help you write a personalised, original, professionally-presented, content-focused resume targeted for the job or industry you are applying for that will captivate the recruiter’s attention by showcasing your achievements and contributions and leave them wanting to know more.
My aim is not just to provide you with a professional resume but to to teach you the fundamentals of resume writing. No resume writer can write an effective resume FOR you but we can write one WITH you.
How does it work?
Once you’ve decided you want your resume to stand out from the crowd of other applicants we will have an initial consultation via telephone or email to determine what job/s or industry you are applying for, your employment history and your skills and qualifications set.
I will then help you understand what an employer is looking for and assist you to identify the aspects of your skills and experience that you want to highlight for the job you’re applying for. I will help you write a draft tailored resume that markets your suitability for the role, is tailored to the job requirements and captures the keywords that employers (and their applicant tracking systems) are searching for. Together we will fine tune this resume until it is ready for submission.
The number of consultations required will depend on the type of job you’re applying for and the applicant level (e.g. recent graduate, professional, executive). No matter what stage you are at Career Swag will have a resume writing package that suits you.
