More Interviews? Tick!
More Job Offers? Tick!
When I decided to relocate to Australia without a job, it was important for me to make sure that I got the correct message regarding my key skills, achievements and experience to the job market.
I commissioned Tara to re-write my résumé for me in the “Australian” format, but ended up getting a much more comprehensive professional service from Tara than I signed her up for. This included advice on how to approach the job market through a multi-tier plan, the key aspects of successful interviewing, which types of jobs to focus on etc. Even after I received a number of job offers Tara was kind enough to advise me on which opportunities would suit my skills set better and therefore have a higher probability of long term job satisfaction and career growth for me and my new country of residence.
She is friendly, punctual, an expert in her field and boasts unquestionable integrity. It is with pleasure that I recommend Tara’s services.Roelof
Professionalism, promptness, resumes that grab attention and win jobs. Tara and her team at Aussie Resumes deliver. I use Aussie Resumes to help me win jobs and to just keep my resume up to date in a very dynamic WA market. Tara has assisted with the drafting, review and approach with both the résumé and selection criteria to be addressed. It’s a great feeling when you get those phone calls from prospective employers wanting to meet with you, but best of all being positioned to choose from a number of opportunities.
If you are looking for that winning edge with your resume, Aussie Resumes should be your first step, in my job I review no less than 30 resumes every two months, and I appreciate resumes that tell me what I want to know in addressing the position that’s been advertised, Aussie Resumes hits the mark – succinctly, to the point and alignment with the position being sought.Antonio
I have been associated with Tara West of Aussie Resumes since 2004, initially requesting Tara to produce a resume and on following years upgrading my resume on regular intervals.
Tara embodies the highest level of professionalism and courtesy that continually strengthens with my ongoing association with Tara.
I have encouraged a number of colleagues and friends to contact Tara to engage her professional service. All personnel directed to Tara from myself have responded to me with an improved response number from job applications and direct short listing to interview process.
Recently Tara upgraded my LinkedIn profile and since my profile upgrade I have received a higher number of contacts regarding opportunities for placements.Wayne
Tara’s contribution was invaluable in rapidly bringing me up to date with the importance of professional social media generally and LinkedIn specifically. She designed my new profile based on my inputs and the resulting picture of skills and experience is far more compelling and clear.
Following her work my profile went from zero for my target role keywords to 1st position and quick contact from recruiters.
Its also good to have a supportive adviser alongside.Robert
