Your resume can be referred to as your ‘paper interview’, aimed at securing you a ‘person interview’. Importantly, employers want the paper to match the person. That’s why I believe your resume must be an authentic reflection of you.

Employers and recruiting managers want to get a glimpse of you on paper.  They want to know:-

  • Who are you?
  • Where have you been?
  • What have you done?
  • What can do you for me?

Through a short casual meeting with me asking you some key questions, I will create a personalised, high-impact resume showcasing your career and highlighting your key accomplishments.  Your resume will clearly present your successes in an easy to read, simple, modern format

You are unique and so your resume will be unique. No one else has the same career as you so there’s no standard template or format that suits everyone. Together, we will talk through the options and decide on what will best fit you and your careers goals.

Everyone has achievements and skills, regardless of who you are and what you’ve done.  I can help you identify these and clearly articulate them on your resume.

By choosing Abound Careers as your professional resume writing service, you’ll gain the confidence and self-assurance you need to be successful in your job search.

Cover Letters

A cover letter is your chance to introduce yourself and make a great first impression. It’s designed to capture your reader’s interest and convey your enthusiasm to work with them. Your resume must be sent with a targeted cover letter specific to the role you are applying for – some employers won’t read your resume without one!

Your cover letter is not your resume repeated. It’s conversational and allows you to tell your story, that is:-

  • Who you are
  • What you’ve accomplished
  • How you did it
  • Why you are the best person for the job.

Your cover letter should be brief and entice the reader to keep reading! It’s also an opportunity for you to show a little of your character through good writing and content.

You may already have an up-to-date resume and only need a professional targeted cover letter to be written – that’s fine! I can work with you to create a quality cover letter that will leave your potential employers wanting to know more about you.

Selection Criteria

Have you ever seen what looks like the perfect job for you, but didn’t apply because it had a long list of selection criteria to address?

Public sector recruitment can be daunting. It’s usually a lengthy process with intimidating interview panels and lots of complicated forms.

Most of my career has been within the public sector, so I have addressed many selection criteria myself – aswell as interviewed extensively. I consider myself a public sector recruitment specialist and would love to share my knowledge with you.

It’s a requirement for many public sector jobs to address a series of selection criteria as part of your application. You need to clearly articulate how you meet each criterion, providing relevant examples.

Preparing a document like this can be overwhelming and seem too difficult. It’s time consuming and requires a lot of thought.

Let me take away the worry for you – that way, you can focus on preparing for your potential interview.

Together, we can draw upon your experience, skills and knowledge to make you the ideal candidate for your ideal job!

Interview Coaching

Nerves. Anxiety. Stress. Panic. Doubt. Dread.  Is that how you feel when you are invited to a job interview?  I know, I get it!  I’ve attended many job interviews myself – most in the public sector with an intimidating panel of executives!

It’s perfectly natural to feel nerves.  It shows you are invested in the role and you want to be successful.

Your interview is your chance to impress in person – you’ve already impressed them on paper with your resume.  Clearly, they like what you know about you already.  Now’s the chance to show that you are the perfect fit!

I truly believe that it’s critical to prepare well for a job interview.  This preparation really shows.  So just what do you need to do to be prepared?  How do you prepare?

Using my HR/Recruitment experience, I’ve created some strategies to help you feel confident at interview, keeping those nerves under control.

I can teach you:-

  • how to make a great first impression
  • build a rapport quickly
  • be prepared for common questions you may be asked
  • tips for behavioural interviewing

I’d love to share my expertise with you so you can be your absolute best at interview!
