1. Find My Profession
Find My Profession is not just a top-notch resume service available in Sydney. We are a global company headquartered in the US on a mission to master effective resumes that convert into offers.
No matter where you are in your career, we are here to help. We have some of the best resume writers available in Sydney with expertise spanning 75+ industries.
You might be thinking it's a bit biased to create a top-rated article, ranking ourselves on the top of the list, but the reality is, we know our services better than any other company. We know the quality we commit to and the level of service we provide. While it's our opinion (and many of our customers) that we are the best, it's just an opinion.
A major perk of Find My Profession is that we pair you up with a writer who has experience in your industry. You don’t have to worry about having a resume writer who is unaware of the role that you are applying for.
While the majority of our clients are Executive and C-Suite, we also work with the Military Transition and IT Professionals in the Greater Sydney Area.
With over 150 5-star reviews that speak for themselves, you can sleep easy knowing that your satisfaction is our #1 priority.
Pros: Find My Profession is reliable and affordable compared to other high-quality professional resume writers. Our applicants receive direct contact with their personally assigned writer who has experience in their line of work.
Cons: Find My Profession is not physically located in Sydney and therefore you could not meet us in person. With a focus on more senior positions, our entry-level resume service may be a bit pricey for recent graduates.
Turnaround: 3-5 business days. Can expedite to 2 business days.
Phone: (831) 888-0967
Reviews: 5/5 stars on Google. 4.9/5 on Sitejabber. 9.6/10 on Trustpilot. 5/5 on Facebook. 5/5 on Glassdoor.
2. Client Centric
Client Centric has the motto, “You’ve worked hard to get where you are. Let’s make that count.” While they describe themselves as an “executive employment solutions” company, you don’t need to be an executive to use their CV/resume writing services. In fact, you will see lots of positive testimonials from job seekers at all stages of their careers on their website. You can use Client Centric for your resume, LinkedIn, selection criteria, and interview prep.
Pros: Client Centric has lots of samples on their website, including some cool infographic CV examples if you are interested in that. We love it when companies proudly show off how great they can make you look on paper—before you buy.
Cons: This company has no reviews on third-party sites (i.e., the kind it is possible to leave negative reviews on). They do however have lots of great testimonials and we’ve included one below.
Turnaround: 3–4 working days.
