Your goal? Getting an interview

That is why I take pride in working with you to write and create a professional resume that will do justice to your skills and competencies. Together we can bring out your special qualities with key phrases and keywords that will make up a successful resume which will transform your “story” into a compelling, branded narrative highlighting your experience, work-skills and achievements.

An individually created resume from a professional with a track record of success is the best investment you can make on behalf of your career!

Understanding what to write in your resume, and what you should never write in your resume can make the difference between months of fruitless and frustrating job searches or a quick response for an interview and hopefully a job offer!


Real reviews

I capture our reviews on localsearch, but I thought to share a few that I love below. 

Reviews are a great way to help set your expectations before we work together.


This resume changed my life ….I got a job offer in Sydney in the first week and am having a better life …. Thank you so much what a blessing

Kerry Catterall

It was a real pleasure to meet Diane and have my resume updated by her. Diane was so helpful in drawing out the relevant information from me and applying it to the resume. She worked tirelessly knowing that there was on a very tight timeline for my application. The end result was fabulous. Thank you so much Diane you made it easy.


I found Diane to be such a pleasure to deal with. Very professional in her approach and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend you use Successful Resumes.


Complimentary cover letter



The cover letter is your first and could be your only opportunity to engage an employer.

A strong and hard-hitting cover letter convinces them to take the time to look at your resume.


Think of a great cover letter as the bait to hook the employer into reading your resume.

Frequently asked questions

This is probably the most frequently asked question I receive – and one of the most important.


Your resume should be as short as possible and the key points you wish to emphasize should stand out clearly. Remember you are not writing a book! Imagine for a moment you are looking through the Yellow Pages for a particular business (perhaps a Resume Writing Consultant!) You want to see quickly and easily the key points offered by each advertiser. No doubt you scan down the advertisements quickly, looking for keywords and phrases. Your resume needs to be the same, perhaps just two pages and a brief cover letter. Key points and competencies need to be clear and easy to read.


Recruitment Agencies and Recruitment Managers can only allocate a few scant minutes to scan a resume, such as the deluge of applications they are receiving for each new role advertised.


Worse still they may not even turn to the second page if the information on the first page is not clear and easy to absorb.
