I got it! I went
through two grueling
interviews though. You
were right. I
needed to write my own
selection criteria. If I
hadn't, I wouldn't have
been able to answer some
of the interview
confidently. Amazingly I
was able to answer all
the questions and some
were very hairy to say
the least. I felt
so familiar with my
after about 20 rewrites
of my selection
criteria. Using Lloyd
criteria guide that you
recommended, and then
the selection criteria
critique was definitely
the way to go. In
fact some of the areas
you got me to expand on
actually came up in the
interviews. Expect a lot
more orders from my
colleagues this year as
several jobs are coming
up. Thanks so much for
all your advice and
support. I have no doubt
that I owe my success to

...Thought you would like to see the changes I made to
my selection criteria after our discussion. I am really
happy with the result and feel more confident. I have a
lot of good material to work on now if I get the
interview. If I do get one I will be back to do the
panel-interviewing tutorial….I was extremely impressed
with your vast knowledge of community based organisations.

It has been great
working with proactivehrm especially their
level of professionalism in writing the resume.
Their prompt reply has also made it easier
for communication during the process of writing the resume
and also their extra effort in finding out the logistics
industry news for me. Thank you!

Iris wrote my
resume for me for a Head of Department position
with a prestigious school. The morning
after the applications were due my referees were contacted
and told that my resume was very impressive. I was invited
for an interview and a week later was offered the position.
I am sure that Iris' professional job on my resume contributed
to my successful application.
"I have just accepted a global marketing
manager's position and I wanted to say a very big thank
you for the help you gave me with my resume. Without a doubt
since I incorporated your suggested changes, my success
rate at obtaining an interview increased beyond belief.
I've had more interviews these last couple of weeks
than I ever had before and now I've been offered an excellent
position that I'm really very excited about.

Thanks to your
wonderfully professional resume, I have
been lucky enough to land a job as a PA / Office Manager
for a prominent interior design firm in the western suburbs.
I have had 3 interviews, and one of the managers from (Name
taken out) Recruitment told me I had a great resume. I found
my new job in the paper, and start Monday week. I'm confident
that your resume got me the interviews, and will certainly
be recommending you to anyone I come across who is job hunting.
Iris, thanks again for your help. Having such a professional
resume really boosted my confidence in my abilities.
Iris when you
asked me for a testimonial for your “revamped”
website, I was stuck for words. What can I say? I could
not believe that I would even get an interview on my first
application after you did my resume, never mind the job!.
When I was told I was successful I was stunned. If you remember
I had absolutely no confidence. The time you spent with
me writing my resume must have been “like
pulling teeth”. I had no idea employers would want
all the information we discussed.
When I got my resume I
believe all that information could be condensed into to
such a concise document. I got a lot of my confidence back
from just going through the exercise. Then when you urged
me to apply for a job you found in the
paper, even if it was just for experience. I was terrified.
Your tutorial notes were great and I followed your advanced
letter writing techniques, but I felt uncomfortable
because it was not the style I was used to. It is hard to
change your way of doing things. But it worked. As I said
over the phone, I am really doing well in the job. It was
like getting on a bike; you never forget.
I just can’t
thank you enough for your interest and the advice you gave.
I know you spent a lot more time than you were paid for,
but as you said, you can’t work any other way. Thanks
ever so much.
Resource Management is the best human resource management
service I have ever used. I have used other similar
services during my career, but none came close in terms
of the standards of personal service, the usefulness of
the advice provided and the advanced techniques they used
to refine my Resume.
claim to be able to deliver, but Pro-Active Human
Resource Services are the only group who have both satisfied,
and indeed exceeded, my expectations. As a young
graduate whose career received a great
boost from their work, I would recommend Pro-Active Human
Resource Management to anyone.
Mark Wilson, South Perth
My personal experience
with Pro-Active has been very positive. I was browsing through
the Internet for examples/ advice for resumes. I got confused.
I then remembered I had cut out an advertisement from the
paper. I went to your website and was very interested, as
it is difficult to get professional advice here
in the North West especially someone who does all the work
for you having the relevant experience. First, I thought
how can this work over the phone and the net but the professional
approach has achieved excellent outcomes. The money
was very well invested as it saved me a
lot of time, I was surprised how you pulled out
all the skills and knowledges I have - I was quiet proud
of myself- I do not think that I would have been able to
do that - it seems we do not think so highly of ourselves
and are reluctant to put things on paper. Thanks to Pro-
Active Human Resource Management I have now a professional
resume which I can makeover when needed.
unsuccessful attempts at securing interviews for managerial
positions advertised through recruitment firms, I sought
professional assistance through your company. The
measurable outcomes on the first page were extremely powerful.
Out of three positions I applied for with my new resume,
I got three interviews with the recruitment firm, and I
was referred to all three jobs. I was offered two of the
positions and declined one at the interview stage. There
is no doubt that I was a bit out of touch and your claims
that it is a new world out there are true. My sincere thanks
for enlightening me on so many aspects of recruitment today.
internet I found your website and from the first email knew
that we were very fortunate in finding someone as professional
as you to work with.
I just wanted
to say thank you for the wonderful job you did with John's
CV. When we set out to search for someone to professionally
write his CV we didn't know where to turn for help as we
were living in Taiwan and a long way from
Not only did you
write a very professional CV but helped
with covering letters and advice on the
best way to source jobs and how to approach prospective
employers. Your advice was invaluable and
we are positive by following it John will be able to secure
the jobs he desires.
Thank you very
much for all the additional help you gave. It was
by far more than we ever expected when we went in search
of someone to help with the CV.
Rowe (previously resided in Taiwan)
I am just about to go
overseas again. This time I have negotiated a much bigger
salary. In fact I think I could have got more but didn't
want to blow it as wasn't sure about the going rate. The
resume with all the outcomes was commented on by a couple of
agencies and they more or less said they wouldn't have to
wait for vacancies to come up. The company one agency sent
me to seemed keen for me to take up the job. The work is
about the same but more guys to supervise. Also more
training and promotion opportunities.
Thanks for the great job
you did on my resume A real improvement! I feel
pretty confident I will land a good job.
Fielding, Darwin, NT
This testimonial was a
surprise. It was found on a web directory reviewing my
site. No name. Note, I no longer have all the business
pages and have added a mountain of job search assistance.
When I last looked at
this site while searching for a resume writer I contacted
them by email but they were booked out as I had left it a
bit late. However, I was still given career advice on the
questions I raised, which was very useful and really got me
thinking more broadly as my career history wasn’t
The owner appeared to really want to help me
succeed even though I was not a client. I think this was
because I am mature age and she had experience in this area.
The site had a lot of business pages. Now I see they have a
job search section, which I have found very enlightening.
Well worth contacting.
