Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I use a professional resume service?

Recruiters and government sectors receive hundreds and sometimes thousands of resumes to process down to a shortlist, spending up to a few minutes looking at each individual application in the first instance. The advantage of our resume writing service is that we know exactly what content to add and remove, how to angle and highlight your relevant achievements, skills and abilities to ensure your resume will stand right out from your competition and give you the very best possible chance of getting the government job you want. There really is no substitute for taking advantage of in-depth professional advice, experience and expertise. What was acceptable ten years ago was not acceptable five years ago; and what was the norm five years ago is not the norm today. Resume preparation is an ever-changing field.

We get results saving us a lot of trial and error, time and money.  Sure, you can buy a resume computer program or read books on how to write your own resume. Every program and every book has its own slant and advice. How do you know what to accept and what to reject? The professional knows what works and what doesn't. To add extra peace of mind, all our government resume packages include an exclusive 30 day interview guarantee - so we are mutually motivated to attain results quickly and effectively for you as a valued client!

Once the resume is completed, a professional career-marketing company such as Government Resumes Pty Ltd knows what avenues to use to effectively market you. It may be a direct mail campaign to certain companies, contacting specific recruiters and/or networking. It may be developing a compelling cover letter to respond to an ad in a newspaper. It could be assistance with interview coaching.  Our knowledge and resources are endless - we take you by the hand to expedite your job search that encompasses far more than just writing a resume. We are true resume professionals that are dedicated to the field of jobseeker marketing.

What is the Government Resumes procedure?

You commence by emailing us your existing résumé together with an advertisement that is indicative of your target position. We will call or email you with an assessment and exact quotation (see our “resume packages” online for pricing and choose from our Bronze, Silver and Gold Package). If you do not have an existing résumé, please request and complete our “Resume Form” detailing your work history, education, referees etc. We then review the information that you have provided and arrange a phone appointment to consult and communicate with you regarding any further information required and to ask you questions regarding your career objective and positions of interest.

What is the expected turnaround time for a resume?

We generally prepare résumés in 7-10 working days, by mutual agreement between the client and resume writer. If you require an express service, we charge a $100 fee to produce your documents within 72 hours from ordering upon client request - which is perfect for that all important job application that closes tomorrow! 

Once you have received a final draft in Word and PDF format, you may review the documents and provide any comments or feedback for editing. Once your feedback and clarification has been is received, the changes are generally made within 24 hours and emailed back to you as final documents - ready to use.

Do I need more than one resume if I am applying for various types of jobs?

This really depends on how different the positions of interest are. Your résumé writer can certainly prepare 2 or 3 different versions if needed, this is often useful for clients work in a trade such as Electrician who would like a resume and cover letter for both general industry and also jobs in the Australian Government.  Alternatively, within the Australian Government you may be pursing two jobs types i.e. driving roles such as Dump Truck Operator and also Catering … in this case two different resumes and cover letters would be created for you and these are included in either our Silver Government Resume Package and Gold Government Resume Package.

However, if you are pursuing employment opportunities within the same industry and job type e.g. Mobile Plant Operator or Trades Assistant, then you should be able to use the same resume, just adjust your cover letter during each application to the position requirements.

I am really busy, can you prepare my resume without a face to face appointment?

Most certainly! Our Government Resume Writers have been preparing resume long distance/remotely for 20 years. To assist us in the accurate and efficient gathering of your information, we utilise a questionnaire, together with a thorough phone consultation with you at a time that suits you.  We also request that clients fax or email through any existing documents such as old or current résumé, references, job descriptions, certificates and job advertisements. A majority of the process is coordinated efficiently via email.

Do you specialise in my field or industry of interest?

With 20 years solid experience assisting 5,000+ clients, our resume writers have assisted jobseekers across all job sectors within the Australian Government at all levels from school leavers to  management, and have prepared resumes for clients in all salary ranges, achieving numerous positions. 90% of our clients haven’t previously worked in the government, however that is not an obstacle as we know what skills and experience to highlight whilst providing effective coaching that will give you confidence and increase your results. Our ultimate objective is to write an effective resume that sells your strengths and attributes, showcasing your skills and experience regardless of what level of position you are seeking.

What are your fees based on?

Resume writing is labour intensive, taking our resume writers anywhere from 3-5 hours to complete a resume project, not including client consultation time and extra time discussing any changes required via telephone to ensure you are 100% satisfied with your documents. There is a great deal of internet research and strategising involved in the development of a resume as well as the specialised expertise that Government Resumes has which is reflected in our prices.
