Yes, we give refunds aligned with the ACCC guidelines! But we’ve never had to offer a refund yet, because we work very closely with you and get your feedback every step of the way to ensure you get top-quality documents that suit your unique situation.

We will refund you the full amount if work hasn’t started. If work has commenced, we will refund you minus the pro-rata cost of the work already completed.

No. Frankly, if a resume writer does guarantee you a job simply due to their services, we suggest you run a mile.

We can’t guarantee you a job because we can’t control all the factors that influence the application process, such as the interview panel and recruitment checks.

What we DO guarantee, however, is that you will receive outstanding, professionally written and top-quality documents tailored to your personal experiences, skills and achievements. We’ll keep asking for your feedback throughout the entire process and we’re confident that you’ll get nothing less than the best.

We most certainly do! You can buy now and pay later using AfterPay, Lay Buy or PayPal In 4 – whichever suits you.

We hear you; times are tough for many of us right now. But we still want you to succeed and make that next career move!

Regardless of their experience, before they start writing with us, each writer completes training and coaching to enhance their skills and ensure they have a base level of knowledge across key industries.

We also have monthly workshops to discuss industry changes, improve our writing and complete quality assurance checks.

Our successful approach is evident by the wonderful testimonials left by many happy clients we have worked with.


If you’d like to cut straight to the chase, you can purchase a writing package directly on our website by clicking on the stage that best suits your next career move.

Or, if you would like to engage a custom package you can contact us directly, and we’ll get back to you within one business day with a quotation.

Our process is straightforward.

After we receive your payment and information, our writers will call or email you (your preference) for a 30 minute consultation to discuss your career history and job application.

Drafts of your documents will be emailed to you for review, and you can talk through any changes you would like during a 15 minute feedback call.

Once those revisions are made, the final documents will be emailed to you – ready for submission!

Usually, resumes take 5 business days to write from the time you make a purchase or pay your invoice.

We use this time to review your request, call you for your 30 minute consultation, write the resume, review the draft with you over the phone, make any final revisions and then email you the final document. Phew!

If you require other documents, or engage a suite of services this may increase the timeframe. Your writer would discuss this with you at the time of booking, and you would create a game plan together.

If you have a set due date that you’re working with and it’s sooner than these timeframes, please contact us using our online form.
We will let you know if we have availability to complete your work faster.

If you need assistance with less than 3 days’ notice, please get in touch with us here. If we have availability to complete your work faster while maintaining the top-quality services we offer, we will let you know.

Please note that all fast turnarounds incur a 25% rush fee.

Yes! Throughout the whole process, any feedback you provide will be incorporated into the final draft.

You can request changes as often as needed until the final versions are agreed on. However, most of our clients only need to provide feedback once due to our superior information-gathering process.

You must provide your latest resume and the link and relevant documentation for the role you are applying for.

If you don’t have a resume or yours is very outdated, we can give you a form that will ask you to add your key work history, qualifications, skills, achievements and any other pertinent information. We can also discuss this on the phone with you, if that’s your preference. 

Our experienced writers are located all around Australia, and are available to email, telephone or video conference with you throughout the writing process.


In-person meetings are not offered as we often find the best writer for your needs may be located in a different state!

We match writers to each request based on their experience, knowledge of the industry and role. If you have a specific writer you would like to use, let us know, and if they are available, we will assign them to your work – or we’ll advise you if we have someone better suited for your needs.

We match writers to each request based on their knowledge and understanding of the industry and role you are applying for.

This means the writer you are assigned will use industry-specific keywords and highlight your relevant skills and accomplishments to make your resume stands out to potential employers.

Yes, we provide all documents in Word and PDF formats so that you can continue to update them as your career progresses.

This is a hot button topic when it comes to resumes and job applications. While ATS compliance is relevant to some industries and niches, it’s a little more nuanced than just tell you that of COURSE we will create an ‘ATS compliant resumes’. Often, that’s used as a marketing buzz word in this space with little insight into the actual back end of recruitment process and ATS use.
To wrap up our advice quite succinctly, an ATS is basically a digital filing cabinet. An ATS is used differently in Australia to other countries but often is marketed here the same. We are aware of ATS and take this into account when designing layouts and presenting information, but it’s not as dire as made out to be!

We feel so strongly about this we have a blog dedicated to the topic, which can provide you with more information. You can read it here. 

From there, if you have any questions, your writer will be able to answer them or you are always welcome to contact us.

Elite writers take great pride in purposefully drawing the attention of recruiters and hiring managers by adding the right amount and pertinent key words and phrases relevant to your industry and job role. We do this carefully, without over saturating your documents, so that they still make sense when read.

We only review documents if you have written a resume after purchasing the VIP Upgrade for our Resume In A Day course, which guides you through our process for writing resumes. If you would like to buy this course for $222, click here.
