Career Stages

Our unique point of difference is a face to face consultation, with a recruitment and human resources practitioner who has over thirty years of experience, working in partnership with you and for you.  A face to face consultation will be held in metropolitan Sydney, given geographical circumstances, or a consultation on Skype or video conferencing.

We categorize your experience into one of the below career stages which will determine the schedule of fees.  All our work is done in-house in Sydney (NOT outsourced overseas) AND is peer reviewed for the purposes of editing, critique, comments and/or suggestions on presentation, target emphasis and strategy.  We've outlined below the additional free services Sydney Resumes offers.

(Excluding personal consultation)

BONUS DISCOUNT FOR YOU - The purchase of more than two services qualifies you for a 20% discount on the purchase of a third service - For Example – When you commission us to prepare a targeted resume/CV and an application specific cover letter, you will be eligible to receive a 20% discount on the purchase of a third service, such as a statement addressing selection criteria OR the second letter of application OR Interview coaching.

FREE - INSIGHTS INTO 25 DIFFICULT INTERVIEW QUESTIONS - During your initial consultation we provide insights into the simplest and most difficult interview questions and discuss how you would consider responding to them.

FREE - INTERVIEW QUESTIONS – on confirmation of interview invitation we will design interview questions specifically for the targeted position and aligned to the selection criteria at no additional cost.

FREE - A SECOND RESUME - We sometimes find a client needs two differently targeted resumes – if you are exploring divergent career directions we will provide a second version at no additional cost.

STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT – Are you on the right track to score the ideal career move? Beginning with your initial consultation and continuing through the journey, we will guide and advise you. 

Please Note – An application specific cover letter must be targeted to the position/person specifications, defining how your skills and experience are directly suited to the selection criteria nominated and show your cultural ‘fit’.

Please Note – Average turn-around time is 5 to 7 days, dependent on deadline submission dates. We will always aim to complete your assignment as quickly as possible, to meet your deadline.   If for some reason you, the client, do not return the draft you were sent within 21 days of receiving it, a Tax Invoice will be prepared and sent for final payment. (We do understand that on occasion there are extenuating circumstances, we would ask that you discuss these with us.)  All changes to draft documents must be finalised within 21 days.

Please note - A deposit of $150 is payable on engagement, work on your documents will not commence until this deposit has been received.  The deposit clearly confirms, as does the signing of the contract, that you have commissioned the services and agree to pay the remaining amount owing on receipt of the tax invoice.  This deposit is a component of the full and final charge.  You may pay in consultation by electronic funds transfer. 

Please note - GST is included and a detailed tax invoice will be supplied. Your finalised documents will be delivered to you when full payment has been received. For clients applying for a position with an application deadline, please ensure payment is received prior to your deadline.
