We’re a boutique-style executive branding firm which specialises in building strategic marketing resumes for business leaders with titles such as: Board Member, MD, CxO, President, GM, Head Of, SVP, VP, Partner, Principal, Division President and similar.
You’re One Click Away.
Because Arielle Executive is a bespoke brand which partners exclusively with senior business leaders, we encourage you to consider our sister brand, Exceptional Resume Writers, which caters to junior managers, non-management professionals and people on a budget.
ARE YOU LIKE SO MANY SENIOR BUSINESS LEADERS WHO:
Don’t know whether your resume clearly speaks to your target market?
Have colleagues telling you that your resume does not reflect how good you really are?
Need help packaging and communicating your strengths?
Have not had to apply for a position using your resume (i.e. jobs have always been offered to you)?
Don’t know the right protocols for approaching recruiters in today’s market?
Desire one or more board nominations/appointments?
Want to step into the c-suite and have been told by recruiters that your resume is not accurately representing your candidacy?
Are looking to make a challenging lateral move into the c-suite of an ASX 100/Fortune 100 company?
Are unclear what to say when asked to give examples of your strengths and achievements?
Find it difficult to communicate your skills without feeling that you are bragging?
Need both offline and online marketing materials (resume, LinkedIn, elevator pitch, content) to best represent you through vetting processes?
Beat Your Competition With A Bold, Branded Resume.
Our bespoke professional resume writing service has helped over 2,000 senior business leaders get invited to interviews, secure formidable salary increases, get promoted to bigger and better titles, and land more fulfilling job roles.
A typical resume – even one that’s written by a competent resume writer – is usually just a flyer that contains surface-level aspects of your career. Your qualifications. Your tenure. Your achievements. A shot at defining your value and career story. While these are important, they fail to position you as a superior candidate in 2019 – especially at the senior leadership level. Today, competition for top leadership roles is at an all time high. In this environment, a CV like this simply makes you look ordinary.
What Does A Resume By Arielle Executive Do For You?
As a strategic marketing document, it positions you as a candidate who understands commercial realities of specific business decision-makers – and who can solve their deepest problems. The result? Hiring managers and recruitment-related stakeholders see you as a strong fit.
“Arielle recently did a makeover of my resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile. The results were simply amazing! I have since taken on a very exciting assignment and am very grateful for the fantastic result, which was in no small part as due to the work done with the Arielle team. Would I use them again? Absolutely!”
Executive Director, Luxury International Hotels & Resorts
“Irene and her team were a pleasure to deal with. They helped me with professional career documents and advice that I have no doubt will help me stand out from the crowd. Irene was professional, interested and thorough. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Irene and her team at Arielle.”
Finance Director, OPTUS
Don't Let Your Resume Sell You Short.
Senior management, executive and board resumes are held to a higher standard on multiple levels. They must “speak” at a level of language which communicates your seniority. We speak the language of senior leaders because since 2011 we've been the #1 branding firm for multi 6 & 7 figure business leaders.
You are a leader because you have learned the importance of delegating the right tasks to the right people. Delegate resume writing to us and leverage our deep expertise to free your focus for business matters where you can add the most value.
Partner With A Proven & Respected Industry Leader.
We are not a resume mill with a shopping bag of pre-written resumes and CVs. We're a potent team of high-calibre talent to have on your side when big opportunities are on the line and you need your brand to look and feel 150% right.
Increase Your Visibility To Executive Search Firms.
Your CV will be most potent when it’s part of an intelligent, strategically integrated ecosystem that allows recruiters to interact with your brand across multiple touchpoints. Such touchpoints typically include a LinkedIn profile and a headshot – and can be added to your resume writing package to ensure maximum impact.
YOUR BRAND IS PRECIOUS.
Arielle Executive has powered careers of c-level and senior executives by crafting brands which regularly win job interviews with ASX/Fortune 100/500 companies and prestigious search firms such as Spencer Stuart and Korn Ferry International.
I'm not at c-suite, executive, director or board member level. Can I work with you?
Solving problems of a strictly defined clientele allows us to be highly effective at what we do. As a guide, we only work with business leaders who have held senior leadership positions such as GM, Director, CXO, Head Of, Regional Manager and National Manager.
I simply want a competent, affordable CV writer. Can you recommend someone?
Do you serve clients outside of Sydney & Melbourne?
Yes. All services are delivered via phone and email – even to our Sydney and Melbourne-based clients. This means we can provide you with second-to-none CV and resume writing services if you’re based elsewhere in Australia or overseas.
Are you a certified professional resume writer?
There are two main resume writer certifications – CPRW (Certified Professional Resume Writer) and CMRW (Certified Master Resume Writer).
After careful consideration, and after receiving a number of enquiries from people whose CPRW and CMRW-style resumes failed to produce results in the job market, we decided that these certifications weren’t adequate for senior business leaders applying for top positions. Instead of adhering to standards which we believe to be substandard, we’ve developed and refined our own proprietary ExecutiveExcellence (trademark pending) branding technology, which enables us to write resumes that consistently outperform the competition.
In addition, to ensure that our technology does not become antiquated, we regularly attend talent conferences and invitation-only events for senior HR professionals, in addition to being an active and respected thought leader in the talent acquisition/recruitment/HR space.
Can I see testimonials from your real CV and resume writing clients?
Yes. We have the highest number of 5-star Google reviews among all professional resume writers in Australia. We also consistently receive feedback via email and text, which you can read by clicking on ‘TESTIMONIALS’ in the top navigation bar.
This huge amount of positive feedback is despite the fact that for the majority of our clients, confidentiality is a must, and they choose not to reveal their identities or post reviews publicly.
Can I see some examples of your resumes and CVs?
Yes. We avoid displaying examples on our website because – sadly – they quickly get copied by people offering “weekend warrior” CV and resume writing services. Unfortunately, a Picasso replica ain’t the real deal.
The good news is that we’re more than happy to show you examples of resumes and CVs we’ve crafted for professionals with a level of seniority that’s similar to yours – simply contact us to start the conversation.
I can write my own resume/CV. Why do I need to hire a professional resume/CV writer?
With some effort, you could definitely improve your resume without paying for the services of a resume writer.
If that’s a path you’d like to investigate, you can start by following one of the many guides we’ve published on the subject of resume writing – simply scroll down to the bottom of this page to find them.
However, just as we couldn’t do your job after a few hours of training, it would be unrealistic to expect that the resume you create will have the same level of impact as the documents we create for our clients.
Who will be writing my resume?
The Arielle Executive CV and resume writing team is comprised of blue-chip executive recruiters, talent acquisition leads, organisational psychologists and HR managers.
All have been on the other side of the table, partnering with c-suite clients and offering advice on their talent decisions. As a result, they understand business drivers and the markers for executive success and can communicate them through your personal marketing collateral.
This ensures that your resume strikes the right chords and speaks directly to the needs and realities of recruiters and hiring managers.
How much does it cost to have someone write your resume?
Resume writing companies operate in three tiers. No-frills operators (also known as resume mills) charge between $70 and $200 – mainly to add basic formatting and structural improvements. Work is typically done by offshore workers and your resume receives approximately 30 minutes of their attention.
Mid-tier companies are usually CPRW and/or CMRW certified and charge between $300 and $700 for a standalone resume. You can expect your achievements to be improved and for your profile to say something meaningful about who you are. These companies claim to articulate your value and create your value proposition, but in practice, they don’t.
Finally, Arielle Executive is a bespoke branding firm that is in a class of its own. Our resumes give you an unfair advantage in the market and our resume writing fees reflect this level of performance, starting above $2,500. Each Arielle Executive resume is a marketing machine that’s built on top of a targeted brand strategy and is a result of 15+ hours of work by a team of high-calibre branding, recruitment, marketing and copywriting professionals.
Are resume writers worth it?
There is some disagreement on this topic. Our view is that you’re a brand which competes for attention in a saturated jobs marketplace. As such, you can expect to be more successful if your resume effectively communicates your value to potential employers.
Unfortunately, most people are quite terrible at writing positively about themselves in a succinct, dense and precise manner.
This is why we believe that resume writing services – especially the best ones – are worth the investment
By the way, we’ve also written a few guides which explain what to look for in a resume writer, and how to choose a resume writing service that you can trust with your brand. Simply scroll to the bottom of the page to start reading.
Which resume writing service is the best?
There’s a resume service that’s a fit for every individual and every budget. We, for example, specialise in crafting bespoke resumes for executives, which makes us the best choice for senior business leaders.
If you’re a mid-tier professional, we suggest that you look for an Australian mid-market resume writing company. If your career is important to you, we recommend that you stay away from low-end resume services and DIY online resume builders.
Broadly, each resume should include the following five sections: Contact Info, Profile, Professional Experience, Education, and Skills. However, these may need to be altered to meet the requirements of certain industries and seniority levels.
Do I need a different resume for every job application?
No two jobs are exactly alike. For example, a typical career move for a CFO is into a CFO, a COO or a CEO position. Clearly, these roles have different requirements, which means the resume needs to highlight different aspects of a candidate’s career history.
The consultant in charge of your branding process will advise you the best strategy; you may need to either sharpen your focus or have a different resume for each type of role that you’re targeting.
Where are you located?
We have two locations. Address of our Sydney office is Suite 55, Level 24, Three International Towers, 300 Barangaroo Avenue, Sydney, NSW. Address of our Melbourne office is Suite 60, Level 9, 440 Collins St, Melbourne VIC, 3000. All visits are by appointment only.
What format will my resume be sent in?
Your resume will be written using Microsoft Word and will not be password protected, which means you will be able to amend it yourself in the future.
I'm worried about confidentiality.
We regularly provide CV and resume writing services to high-profile executives of publicly listed Australian companies, senior government officials and leaders of well-known international unicorn startups.
This means we understand the importance of discretion and privacy. Your information will never travel beyond our small, tightly knit and highly professional team.
