Client Reviews

Virginia was recommend to me by a friend. At first I was a bit suspicious, what could possibly this person do for me! After one phone conversation I was excited to work with Virginia. I needed my CV rewritten completely and she really nailed it!Most of all I appreciated her honesty and advice that came from personal experience.One thing I remember well, she asked me to go through the final draft of my new CV and make changes, which made me laugh. Very professionally written and covered every single detail!Not a single word to change.Than you Virginia

After an extremely long absence from the workforce, i scoured the internet looking for a professional resume service and was immediately drawn to the website, Sydney Resumes. The website was easy to navigate, addressed many of the concerns I had returning to the workforce following a long absence and had a long list of testimonials from satisfied customers.Following a brief telephone conversation with Virginia Craven, the principal of Sydney Resumes, we met in person to discuss my return to the workforce, the area I would like to work in and my work history. Despite having very little to work with in terms of my professional work history, Virginia was able to utilise all the volunteer work I had undertaken to my advantage. My resume and letter of introduction were both exceptionally well presented and addressed key employability skills. In short, Virginia managed to work a miracle. I am thrilled with the finished product.I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Sydney Resumes.

Virginia reformed my CV to a professional and outstanding standard, after I'd recently graduated my Bachelors and travelled for a couple of years. I received a number of job interviews and gained a position invaluable to starting me off on my career path. The CV is very well structured and easy to manipulate to add new positions and work experience. I have used this CV as a base for a number of years and still get great compliments for it. Thank you very much Virginia!

Virginia was so deeply professional and her input and support enabled me to put together a CV that helped to finally land me a permanent teaching job after four years of submitting over 30 applications! I was so happy with her work, I then referred other friends to her who have also benefitted from Virginia's skills and knowledge. Thank you Virginia, I owe you so much for your efforts in helping me gain permanent employment.

I would like to thank Virginia Craven for all her help and professional attention with my resume.At 51 and in between careers, I had plenty of experience and qualifications to fill a resume but not a clue about how to put an effective one together.I have discovered from the positive feedback from my current resume, just how important structure and choosing the right target words can be. Your resume is your front line to the employer and needs to send a specific message in as short as space possible.Virginia gave caring , personal attention to my portfolio and produced for me a very impressive resume that helped open doors to opportunities that would have otherwise passed me by.I am very grateful for her help and have no hesitation in recommending her to fellow job seekers.Andi Benson,Team Leader at ADRA Gardens Cannington.

I came to Virginia as a university student in my final semester. At the time I had been applying to countless jobs and was not receiving any responses/call backs.As a near graduate with numerous academic accolades and corporate work experience I could not work out why.After visiting Virginia, she transformed my resume and within weeks I started receiving responses/call backs. The layout of my resume was also praised at a career counseling session I had shortly after employing her services.I now work for one of the largest IT companies in the world. The work Virginia did quite literally got my "foot in the door" and provided me with the interview opportunities I needed to showcase my abilities.

“You have been a pleasure to work with, your support and understanding has been so reassuring, I feel as though you took me under your wings and guided me along the way…. Considering I have had nothing but bad luck along the way, this experience has only confirmed that there are still great people like you out there… Thank you for all your assistance and hard work, I greatly appreciate it.
I can now definitely say I love my Resume”

“I wanted to thank you for everything you’ve done for me this last year.  While it was no small feat in itself you really did so much more than helping me get my resume together.  You helped me find a part of myself I had lost and without your challenge, support and guidance I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today, now working for a company building social enterprises.”
