5 Star Google review - IT Analyst and Project Manager


"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."

5 star google review – Horticulturalist


"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."

5 Star Google review – Career change from self-employed to Health Professional 


"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."

5 Star Google review - Teacher


"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.

"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 very helpful from the outset. She was willing to go out of her way to meet me personally, learn about my background, personality and the type of CV that I would like for my future position as a Law Graduate. I was very lucky to find a resume writer who was friendly and could accommodate my unique needs. Virginia was also very efficient and did not delay the process. I was very impressed with the quality of her service and ability to meet my specific needs. I got a great job and if I was looking to apply for more senior positions in the future, I would not hesitate to contact Virginia to assist me again."

5 Star Google review 2018


“Thank you again for all your work on ……. CV.  You have completely transformed it!  It has been so good to have someone objective and so experienced go through his CV and highlight what is good and what needs to change. Your writing style is excellent, and you have really paid attention to details we didn't even know to include.  You have done a wonderful job and we are very grateful. Fingers crossed that this one does the trick.  Thanks again”.

"Returning to the workforce after many years. Virginia re-defined and summarised my skills showing the organization how my skills, work, life and community experiences were an excellent fit and matched their requirements. Virginia guided me through the responses I needed to make to the selection criteria for the position. I was thrilled when I got an interview to the first job I applied for and more importantly I have a resume that I can build on because Virginia explained to me what the employer wants to see in a resume."

" Virginia put an enormous amount of time and effort into her work and communications with me. The results were outstanding within days I had phone calls from schools saying they had read my CV and were really impressed and I had my pick of contracts to choose from. In the end, a school offered me a fantastic long-term contract over the phone because they wanted to snap me up before anyone else had. Thanks to Virginia I now have a teaching position I love after being out of work for 8 months."

Tanya H. Sydney, Teacher


"Recently when applying to be accepted into an MBA programme I required a comprehensive CV. I found the task of remembering everything to include daunting to say the least. Virginia was simply brilliant in helping me to include everything I had achieved, presenting the information to a high standard and including personal touches to make my CV stand out. Virginia was very professional, fast and a pleasure to work with and the bonus was the day after submitting the CV I was accepted."

Ellen C. Sydney, Property Portfolio Manager


" With Virginia's expertise the finished product was beyond my expectations as she was able to draw out my professional skills in response to the position's selection criteria.
