It was the first time I was using a professional resume writer but Malcolm made the process really smooth. He asked... questions that I had never thought of putting in my resume and really brought out the key achievements and tasks that I am or was doing. I’m really satisfied with the final draft - as it showed the depth of my experience and skills, which I'd say was not easy due to nature of my previous/current experience. Turnaround time was really fast and communication with Malcolm was with minimal hassle. Overall great experience and I would definitely recommend him.read more

I’ve never used a service like this before as I generally get promoted within the organisation of which I work, or I... apply for roles similar to what I had been doing in the past, so this was a huge step in asking someone to me build the perfect resume, and I can safely say, I was not disappointed. Malcolm was an absolute pleasure to deal with, very responsive and kept me up to date with the progress of my resume. His questioning technique is unbelievable as he makes you think about your previous roles and how you are able to transfer those skills in to the role in which you are applying. I will most certainly be using Malcolm again in the future, thank you again for your expertise and help in building my resume.read more

I went through Republic Resumes when I was looking for work in 2019, after completing a Masters Degree. Malcolm... responded very quickly to my initial enquiry, and was very friendly and easy to work with. Malcolm helped me re-write my resume, kept in good contact with me, and I was very happy with the final product. I was able to obtain excellent employment not long after I completed my revised resume, and have been working ever since. I would highly recommend Malcolm's services.read more

After having time away from the workforce to raise a family, my... old resume was lacking in depth and job hunting felt to be an insurmountable task. However, Malcolm was professionally encouraging, highly responsive and his skilful approach to writing my new resume was the springboard I needed to get my current position as well as other job offers from Commonwealth departments. I am extremely grateful.read more

After years of trying to break into the Human Resources field I was recommended Republic Resumes. Malcolm was friendly,... professional, quick to respond to any queries that I had and kept in communication. His industry knowledge was valuable and he collaborated well with me to develop my cover letter and resume. Malcolm was able to extract the necessary information he needed and beautifully captured my transferable skills. He was adept at using HR jargon and created a well articulated and professional tailored cover letter and resume under 1 week, which landed me 3 interviews. I am now working in my dream job and workplace as a Human Resources Coordinator!read more

I was recommended republic resumes after I was looking to improve my resume to start looking for a career. I mainly... struggled with the right words to use and a good structure to showcase the right skills to employers. Even over the holiday season the responses were consistently speedy and all my resume and cover letter drafts were finalised in just three days. My resume and cover letter look fantastic and I look forward to using these to apply for work. The value for the price is fantastic. While looking online for other resume writers, the average price was between $400-$600 for all resumes while I was charged just $200 for an entry level resume and cover letter. Overall I’m incredibly happy with the work I received and I would definitely recommend this business to others!read more

I had been employed by the same company for 18 years and in that time had made good progression however with no formal... qualifications. When I decided it was time to make a career change, I needed to show my potential employees that my past on the job experiences could be an asset to their company. I found Malcolm through google search and reading reviews, I reached out and was happy when he squeezed me in to his already full schedule. Both being super busy at the time, Malcolm made the process easy asking the right questions via email generally completing each step quicker than he would initially advise. The new resume and cover letter were exactly what I needed and helped me gain a new position in the industry that I had set my sights on. Thanks again Malcom.read more

Amazing professional and expert in his field . As a TAFE graduate and career changer I looked for professional resume... writers , after the search , some asking skyrocketing prices and others having no reviews on their services I found Republic Resume , thanks to the good reviews. Malcolm replied in 15 minutes after my first request , very prompt , professional and helpful , the instructions easy to follow and price was extremely good and 100% worth it . For the next 3 days we had multiple communication going on with Malcolm redrafting my resume again and again until it looked perfect . During all the process I felt extremely valued and Malcolm was very helpful and eager to do his best to help me in the best possible way . I was surprised when he picked up such small details from my studies and previous work experience that I could not even think about and it is amazing how such a small things make such a huge difference in the end .Cannot thank you even more ,Malcolm ,for such a great job . Will definitely be recommending you to everyone who is looking for a job ,planning a career change or simply upgrading the resume . Many thanks . Best wishes Olena .read more

Malcolm was incredibly helpful. Having trawled the internet in search of an Adelaide based professional resume writer,... I came across his reviews and immediately sent through an email with my resume and cover letter. I emailed him late at night and had received a response by the time I woke up. Not only did I have a response, but he was kind enough to edit what I had provided and make further suggestions to suit the role I was looking at moving into. Not an easy task when you're looking at an unrelated traineeship following the completion of a trade qualification. Can't recommend him enough. Thank you, Malcolm.read more

Malcolm was professional, fast and detailed.

Further, I gathered Malcolm is a hard worker who strives for customer satisfaction. Despite being busy he made the time to do this in concise fashion without delay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his services to others, I was thoroughly impressedread more
