This is Our Story. We’d Love to Tell Yours.

The Elite Collective is a boutique resume writing and career development company, founded by Adriana Modersitzki, a Canberra-based recruiter who’s worked with some of Australia’s top recruiting firms.

What began as a resume writing company has blossomed into a boutique career consultancy, offering top-quality resumes, pitch documents, courses, a community, and so much more.

The team at Elite help Australian professionals go after bigger opportunities, with professionally written and formatted documents, coaching, and resume writing courses. 

Not only that, but we also connect our Talent Community with exciting contracting opportunities that come our way.

If you’re ready to make a career change, we’ve got the skills and experience you need.

Our Vision, Mission and Values

 The Elite Collective is the first stop career-driven individuals make when they’re ready for greater impact, income and job satisfaction. We help our clients recognise their inherent value, plot their career progression in line with their personal values and motivators, and make positive contributions to their communities through their work.

We provide personalised career development advice and craft compelling documents for ambitious professionals. How? We connect with our clients, get curious about their unique value proposition, and challenge the status quo in the name of growth and better client outcomes.

We value and prioritise connection with each other and with our clients. We problem-solve with a 'we' not 'me' focus. We are collaborative and readily share insights and information. We are a high touch, service-focused operation and we always seek to connect with our clients. This connection is how we bring them to the front and centre of their documents, and it's how we tell their career story. We strive to surprise and delight, and we give incredible customer service that makes our clients feel seen, heard, and valued.
We are always curious. Always questioning. Always digging deeper. We dig deep to understand the individual in front of us, the roles they've held and the unique contributions they have made. We explore, discover, and display. We pay deep attention, highlight, and celebrate. This allows us to paint a more vivid picture of our clients and the value they have to offer. Our curiosity prompts our growth and the constant evolution of our practises and services.
We are continually challenging ourselves, our skills, and the status quo in the name of growth and better client outcomes. We are always learning and evolving personally, professionally, as a team, and as a company. When we see a bar that could be raised, we raise it.

The Evolution of Elite

The Elite Collective was launched by Adriana Modersitzki in 2016, although the story really begins in 2009. Before she founded Elite, Adriana spent many years working in recruitment. As part of her job, she would review hundreds of resumes and interview countless applicants.

That’s when Adriana decided to make her own career move. She wanted to support job seekers to communicate their unique offering and skill set more clearly. So, in 2016, she founded her own resume writing company and started helping more Australians tell their stories and land their dream jobs. 

Since then, The Elite Collective has proudly delivered thousands of documents, and expanding their offering beyond resumes and cover letters. In 2020, Elite started offering courses for clients who want to confidently create their own documents. In 2021, the team grew, the Talent Community for government contracting opportunities was launched, and Adriana began supporting other Resume Writers growing their own businesses.
