Why should I use a professional resume service?
Recruitment companies and oil & gas companies receive hundreds and sometimes thousands of resumes to process down to a shortlist, spending up to a few minutes looking at each individual application in the first instance. The advantage of our resume writing service is that we know exactly what content to add and remove, how to angle and highlight your relevant achievements, skills and abilities to ensure your resume will stand right out from your competition and give you the very best possible chance of getting the oil & gas job you want. There really is no substitute for taking advantage of in-depth professional advice, experience and expertise. What was acceptable ten years ago was not acceptable five years ago; and what was the norm five years ago is not the norm today.
We achieve results saving us a lot of trial and error, time and money. Sure, you can buy a resume computer program or read books on how to write your own resume. Every program and every book has its own slant and advice. How do you know what to accept and what to reject? The professional knows what works and what doesn't. Once the resume is completed, a professional career-marketing company such as Oil & Gas Resumes Pty Ltd knows what avenues to use to effectively market you. It may be a direct mail campaign to certain companies, contacting specific recruiters and/or networking. It may be developing a compelling cover letter to respond to an advertisement in a newspaper. It could be assistance with interview coaching. Our knowledge and resources are endless - we take you by the hand to expedite your job search that encompasses far more than just writing a resume. We are true resume professionals that are dedicated to the field of jobseeker marketing.
What is the Oil & Gas Resumes procedure?
You commence by emailing us your existing résumé together with an advertisement that is indicative of your target position. We will call or email you with an assessment and exact quotation (see our “resume packages” online for pricing and choose from our Bronze, Silver and Gold Package). If you do not have an existing résumé, please request and complete our “Resume Form” detailing your work history, education, referees etc. We then review the information that you have provided and arrange a phone appointment to consult and communicate with you regarding any further information required and to ask you questions regarding your career objective and positions of interest.
What is the expected turnaround time for a resume?
The completion of projects are determined by a combination of factors including our current workload, the complexity of your project, length of your old resume and also the response time to our questions via email. If you require an express service, we charge an Express Fee of $100 to produce your documents in 3-working days from ordering upon client request - perfect for that all important job application that closes quickly! Once you have received a final draft in Word and PDF format, you are required to you review the documents and provide any comments or feedback for editing. Once your feedback and clarification has been is received, the changes are generally made within 24 hours and emailed back to you as final documents - ready to use.
Do I need more than one resume if I am applying for various types of jobs?
This really depends on how different the positions of interest are. Your résumé writer can certainly prepare 2 or 3 different versions if needed, this is often useful for clients work in a trade such as Electrician who would like a resume and cover letter for both general industry and also jobs in the oil & gas industry. Alternatively, within the oil & gas industry you may be pursing two jobs types i.e. driving roles such as Dump Truck Operator and also Catering … in this case two different resumes and cover letters would be created for you and you are welcome to request a customised quotation if required. However, if you are pursuing employment opportunities within the same industry and job type e.g. Mobile Plant Operator or Trades Assistant, then you should be able to use the same resume, just adjust your cover letter during each application to the position requirements.
Can you prepare my resume without a face to face appointment?
Yes our Resume Writers have been preparing resume long distance/remotely for 24 years. To assist us in the accurate and efficient gathering of your information, we utilise a questionnaire, together with a thorough phone consultation with you at a time that suits you.
