Who are we?
We are one of only a handful of Australian creative agencies specifically focussed on resume, selection criteria and cover letter writing with an office you can walk in to.
Physically based solely in beautiful Hobart (until COVID ends), The Resume Writers are a small, dedicated team of consultants originally from all over Australia, servicing clients nationwide. Our face to face operations for other capital cities will re-open at a later date.
Our approach is underpinned by copywriting principles, and this is our major point of difference. The days of fact-based resumes are largely over– we write content which speaks to the needs of the audience and harnesses your unique selling propositions. We know that resume are read on the screen, not handed over a counter; our considerations for resumes are modern, relevant and informed by strategic copywriting principles in the construction of content.
We can operate entirely online, over the phone and face to face, allowing our clients to choose what works for them. This also affords us the ability to make fast edits, provide fast service, and to enable clients from regional and rural areas to receive our support without any compromise to the service.
If you’re in Hobart, you’re more than welcome to come in to the office on Elizabeth Street for a chat (just make sure you check in!), or for elsewhere, just give us a call.
Founder / Head Copy Cruncher and Editor
Jacquie has had a varied career history ranging from classical music, performance, copywriting and employment services.
Having completed a Bachelor of Music in Classical Performance on the flute, Jacquie was featured as an instrumentalist on composer Brian Wroten’s album Tasman, was the recipient of the 2012 Award for Best Contemporary Performance and ultimately graduated from the Conservatorium of Music with a High Distinction result in performance.
After her degree, she pitched her previous experience as a performer and private teacher to gain work within the education sector in private training groups.
She considers the training she learnt in the analysis and interpretation of the context, style and approach required for classical pieces for performance to be directly relatable to the process for clients. Elicit, interpret, develop, test, perform and repeat.
A move into employment services followed where she consolidated her passion and talent for turning ideas into outcomes. Using finely honed writing skills from university and her innate creative flair, she achieved award-winning results for Tasmania before founding the The Resume Writers.
Jacquie enjoys the process of working with clients to develop outstanding, strategic content that gets her clients to the next step.
She does not enjoy trying to brush her crazy hair.
