Invest In Your Career

9 Out Of 10 Job Applications Get Ignored.

The root cause of this problem is the humble resume. Unfortunately, most resumes are either 10+ years out of date or are written by uninspired resume writers who - despite their claims to the contrary - don’t have the skills to pitch your experience in a commercially meaningful way. The small and mighty team of Exceptional Resume Writers is here to fix all that.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What are the lead times?

Because we’re a premium resume writing service, we usually need 8-11 business days – from the moment you place your order – to plan, write and finalise your career documents. That being said, an express turnaround is sometimes possible – please call us on (02) 5504 5433 to discuss your unique situation.

How do I get started?

You can book by choosing a package on the “Pricing” section of our website and following the prompts to checkout. Your resume writer will reach out to you within 24 business hours of you completing the purchase.

Do your resume writers have experience in my industry?

Our resume writers have successfully worked with clients in over 50 industries, including:

  • Accounting & Finance
  • Arts & Entertainment
  • Design & Architecture
  • Digital Technology
  • Climate Technology
  • Education & Training
  • Engineering

  • Legal
  • Manufacturing

  • Medical & Healthcare
  • Mining
  • Project Management
  • Real Estate & Property
  • Sales & Marketing
  • Transport & Logistics

We will match you with a resume writer who has the best-suited background for your industry.

I'm not based in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane.

No problem. Even though most of our clients live in the suburbs of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, our team of resume writers can work with you if you’re based anywhere in Australia. All consultations are done via phone/Skype.

As a fun fact, most of our Sydney clients live in North Shore, Hills Hornsby and Parramatta areas. Our Melbourne clients tend to be from Hawthorn, Brighton and Toorak while our Brisbane clients seem to congregate around New Farm and West End.

How does the 60-day guarantee work?

The guarantee is designed to give you complete peace of mind. If you are not getting satisfactory responses from recruiters within 60 days of receiving your resume, we will rewrite it again, free of charge. (You must notify us in writing within 60 days of receiving your final draft).

How much does it cost to have my resume professionally written?

Our prices range roughly between $600 (for a standalone resume) to $1000 (for a package that includes a resume, a cover letter and a LinkedIn profile.

That being said, you’ll find resume writers in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane who charge as low as $100 and as high as $3,000. As a general trend, overseas resume writers charge less.

We believe that our price point represents the perfect sweet spot. You get to work with a top-tier professional resume writer without blowing your budget.

How do I find a good resume writer?

This is tricky. The resume writing industry is unregulated. Skill levels of individual writers vary greatly and often do not correlate with credentials and years of experience. Some of the worst resumes we’ve seen have been written by so-called award-winning veteran resume writers.

We recommend that you shortlist 2-3 resume writing companies and speak with their representatives. Listen to the quality of their advice. Read between the lines.

Are they rattling off cliches and buzzwords, or are they acting as a strategist in your corner? Do they understand the commercial realities of your career?

Listen to your gut.

Who will be writing my resume? Can I speak with them?

Absolutely. Your resume writer will be an Australian or an NZ (yes, there’s one Kiwi on the team) professional, trained from the ground-up in our proprietary resume writing method, plus a background in either career mentoring, recruitment or HR. Your assigned resume writer will be contactable via email and phone during regular Australian business hours.

I need a resume urgently.

This isn’t always possible, but we will do our best to accommodate you. If you have an urgent need, please call us on (02) 5504 5433 before you place your order and let us know what the submission deadline is. If we can make it happen, we will.

Why do you include ATS testing in your packages?

Approximately 85% of companies use Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to screen resumes. While ATS have improved over the years, they, unfortunately, are still known for rejecting resumes of perfectly qualified candidates.

We maximise the chances of your resume passing ATS tests by scanning it with an industry-standard ATS tool prior to delivery.

Who are your resume writing services best suited for?

We specialise in writing resumes for mid-career professionals and mid-level managers.
