CVs, curriculum vitae, resumes and cover letters to help you win the job you want

Make Your CV Stand Out From The Crowd

  • Winning in the competitive job search market

    Finding the right job in New Zealand isn’t easy right now.  You have to work hard just to be noticed. Most recruiters and employers spend less than 60 seconds on the first read of a CV.  You have to make a very strong impact to secure the privilege of an interview.

  • Marketing you

    This means your CV (or curriculum vitae or resume) is possibly the most important document impacting your career success. It must clearly demonstrate how special you are - with the attitudes, skills, experience and talents that the employer needs.

    A CV from Successful Resumes helps “market” you.  When we write your CV, we carefully tailor each phrase and keyword to succinctly communicate your value to the employer. We craft your CV as if it were a personal sales brochure - because that’s exactly what it is.
