Who is The Elite Collective?

The Elite Collective was originally known as Elite Resume Services, founded by Adriana Modersitzki, a Canberra-based recruiting expert who’s worked with some of Australia’s top recruiting firms.

The Story

The Elite Collective was launched by Adriana Modersitzki in 2016, although the story really begins in 2009. Before she founded Elite, Adriana spent 7+ years working in recruitment, with a special focus on recruiting contractors across a variety of industries. As part of her job, she’d review hundreds of resumes and interview countless applicants, every day. She soon noticed a disconnect - sometimes a resume would make an applicant look fairly average on paper, but then in the interview, they’d blow her socks off! She realised that the right resume and pitch documents would:

  • Make it through the HR system
  • Get noticed by recruiters
  • Portray applicants in their best light
  • Give applicants the best chance of success

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 onboarded the very first Elite clients, applying her HR expertise to help more Australians tell their story and land their dream job. Since then, The Elite Collective has proudly worked with hundreds of clients and delivered close to 1,000 documents, expanding our offering beyond resumes and cover letters.

  • When her clients land roles, she does this odd little dance in her chair (but that’s just between you and me)
