• Meet Marlene Cole

    Award-winning Certified Advanced Resume Writer (CARW)

    As a former Recruitment Manager and a multi international award-winning Certified Advanced Resume Writer (CARW), I am passionate about developing the career tools you need, to get noticed.

    For more than a decade, I have been assisting job seekers to stand out on paper, yet I am more than just a resume writer. In this day and age, your resume must tell a story of your offered value. My services include LinkedIn profiles, interview coaching, career advice and a unique depth of knowledge across Australia’s resource and construction industries.

    Creating your employment marketing tools from the ground up, without the use of templates or overused resume phrases, a testimony to my expertise is that I have not actively promoted my services in the last eight years. 90% of my new clients contact me through referrals… because they get results!

    “Marlene was a wonderful help to me when I was deciding to change careers after 12 years.

    She made my resume look very professional and made me realise all the talents I had that even I didn’t know about!
    My resume is outstanding and my cover letter makes people want to know more about me. I would not hesitate in recommending Marlene to others. Thanks Marlene for all your help.”
