Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I buy a Professional Resume?
Regardless of your industry, career duration or desired job title, your resume is an essential part of any job application. In a lot of circumstances it is the first interaction you have with the employer that you wish to work for.
So it stands to reason that you want to make a fantastic first impression.
Everyone understands that a Resume represents themselves, but were you aware that in the situation that you are working with, or applying to a recruitment agency or internal recruitment for you next role, that your Resume also represents them when they forward it to their end client?
Are you confident that they will want to put you forward to their client?
The Resume People are here to help you always represent yourself and anyone working on your behalf in the best possible light. Having a professionally formatted resume will ensure you are always considered highly for the role you have applied for and that there is little or no hesitation in being represented through to the end client.
How much does a Resume cost?
Pricing varies depending on the type of resume you are buying and the type of industry you are applying for. A Trades & Professional Resume at $199.00 are short and quite “punchy” to suit the fast turn-around nature of that recruitment industry. A White Collar & Executive Resume at $299.00 needs to grab attention fast as well, but requires more finesse in its delivery and requires more time and focus on results, KPIs, achievements and deliverables. This can take more effort to deliver and therefore comes at a higher cost.
That seems expensive. Why should I pay so much?
We are not the cheapest on the market, we are also far from the most expensive. We feel we offer outstanding value for money when you consider the years of expertise going into your resume.
How long should a Resume be?
While it will vary depending on the length of your career, it should rarely be longer that 3 to 4 pages long.
What advice can your business give that I can’t find online?
The Resume People combine over 40 years of Industry experience from Mining & Resources, Civil Construction, Telecommunications & IT as well as lengthy careers in Australian Recruitment. This makes us uniquely placed to know exactly what the current hiring trends are and how to shape your applications to take advantage of that.
