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

I highly highly recommend Malcolm and Republic Resumes. 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

Thanks to the resume and cover letter that Malcolm tailored for me, I was able to land my dream job, which was really... difficult for me to get as I am an international student trying to get a job related with my career in a pharmacy. Great, professional and fast service. Malcolm was always very nice and prompt. I definitely recommend Republic Resumes.read more

Malcolm used a resume that I had already been using and developed it into a strong document that helped me to change... fields from Retail to Human Resources. He highlighted my transferable skills and emphasized my degree in Human Resources. From this new resume and cover letter, I was accepted into the Australian Public Service Human Resources Graduate program in Canberra. Malcolm is very quick to respond, and we collaborated to make the final document within 10 days of initiation.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. I was very impressed with the resume and cover letter he completed for me,... and was even kind enough to write a free cover letter for a role on the cusp of closing applications. 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

After my initial contact with Republic Resume, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a response within ten minutes. Due... to Covid19 Malcolm advised me that he has been very busy, however, he has produced an extremely good quality Resume for me which I will be confident to present to HR staff and future employers. Very pleased with the speed, accuracy and professionalism showed throughout this short and pleasant experience. Daveread more

Malcolm is a very professional resume expert. He responds to emails promptly and always finish everything on time.... Malcolm also gives me a lot of honest advices and support. He also asked a lot of mind-intrigued questions that give me a clearer view about my career path. Last but not least, he had been able to help me shorten my four-page resume to a career-focused with two pages only along with a wonderful cover letter.read more

After googling and researching different companies, I contacted Malcolm to re-write my very old and outdated resume.... Malcolm was quick to respond, gave me an upfront quote and got straight to work.

Dodgy unemployment figures hide the truth

Every now and then I rail (fruitlessly) against the ABS methodology which constructs the Australian unemployment rate. Yesterday it was pegged at 6.9 per cent.

Hold your belly and laugh.

Last year, around this time, it was 5.3 per cent. I’ve written about these curious and extraordinarily low figures heaps.

This story from the ABC is pretty good. Nice to see a couple of reporters on the ball.

It’s not just that the dole lines have tripled in length, it’s the fact that jobs have dried up – seriously dried up.

Let’s look at this from the view point of validity. First of all, we need to factor in about a million people who have given up looking for work. That means, according to the ABS, they’re not officially part of the workforce and therefore NOT unemployed… I know … I know.

Then consider that people on JobSeeker are not counted. There’s about a million people mouldering there.

The whole of Australia’s airline industry and tourism industry has crashed. That includes everyone from pilots, baggage handers to truck drivers. It also includes the thousands of people who worked in shops in airports and various supply chains.

Now include the fact that international tourism has died. It’s gone for all money.

About 200,000 jobs alone in retail and accommodation, were directly and indirectly tied to international tourism.

A key part – but I’m not counting them as tourists – is international students. There numbers have fallen by 70 per cent – and those that are stuck in Australian, are doing it very, very tough.

About 30,000 university jobs were tied to teaching and looking after those students.

There’s a comprehensive knock-on with retail, just from the lack of international students. But if we include what is happening in Melbourne in the accommodation and retail sectors, plus the fact that people are saving and not spending, it’s a fact that around retail jobs have gone.

They’re not working part time or casually. They’re GONE.

I know the ABS methodology is old and creaky. It was built for another era but something very weird or shonky is going on when journalists unquestioningly parrot the new unemployment figure as 6.9 per cent.

I’m counting around a rise of 3 million people unemployed.

But the real unemployment figure is closer to 14 or 15 per cent. In SA, there’s not much change out of 17-18 per cent.

Put your best foot forward

Malcolm builds expert resumes, cover letters and LinkedIn profiles, which unleash an unbeatable business case to promote you as a 'must have' asset to an employer.
