Frequently Asked Questions

Why should you consider using a professional resume service?

Recruitment companies and HR Managers of leading mining companies are inundated with hundreds, sometimes thousands, of resumes to sift through for shortlisting. They typically spend only a few minutes reviewing each application initially. The advantage of our resume writing service lies in our expertise in knowing precisely what content to include and exclude, how to angle and emphasise your relevant achievements, skills, and abilities. This ensures that your resume stands out from the competition, giving you the best possible chance of landing the mining job you desire. There truly is no substitute for leveraging in-depth professional advice, experience, and expertise. What was considered acceptable ten years ago is no longer acceptable today, and what was the norm five years ago may not be the norm today.

We deliver exceptional results, saving you significant time, trial and error, and money. While you could purchase a resume computer program or read books on how to write your own resume, each program and book offers its own perspective and advice. It can be challenging to discern what to accept and what to reject. Professionals, on the other hand, understand what works and what doesn't. Furthermore, once your resume is completed, a professional career-marketing company like Mining Resumes knows the most effective avenues to market you. This may involve a direct mail campaign to specific companies, contacting particular recruiters, or networking. It could also entail crafting compelling cover letters in response to newspaper advertisements or providing assistance with interview coaching. Our knowledge and resources are extensive, and we guide you through your job search process, which extends far beyond simply writing a resume. We are dedicated resume professionals committed to jobseeker marketing.

What is the procedure at Mining Resumes?

The process begins with the selection of a package then payment, then emailing us your existing résumé along with an indication of your target position. If you don't have an existing résumé, you can request and complete our Resume Form, detailing your work history, education, referees, etc. We review the information you provide and schedule a phone appointment to consult with you further, gathering any additional information required and discussing your career objective and positions of interest.

What is the expected turnaround time for a resume?

The completion of projects depends on factors such as our current workload, the complexity of your project, the length of your old resume, and your response time to our questions via email. For those requiring an express service, we offer an option to produce your documents in 3 working days from ordering for an additional Express Fee, perfect for urgent job applications. Once you receive a final draft in Word and PDF format, you review the documents and provide any comments or feedback for editing. Upon receiving your feedback and clarification, we make changes quickly and email the final documents back to you, ready to use.

Do I need more than one resume if I am applying for various types of jobs?

Whether you need multiple resumes depends on the differences between the positions you're interested in. Your résumé writer can prepare 2 or 3 different versions if necessary. For example, if you work in a trade like Electrician, you may want a resume and cover letter for both general industry and jobs in the mining industry. Similarly, if you're pursuing different job types within the mining industry, such as Dump Truck Operator and Catering roles, separate resumes and cover letters can be created. However, if you're applying for positions within the same industry and job type, like Mobile Plant Operator or Trades Assistant, you can likely use the same resume, making adjustments to your cover letter for each application as needed.

Can you prepare my resume without a face-to-face appointment?

Yes! Our Resume Writers and Career Coaches have been preparing resumes remotely for 24 years. To facilitate the accurate and efficient gathering of your information, we utilize a questionnaire and conduct a thorough phone consultation at your convenience. We also ask clients to fax or email any existing documents such as old or current résumés, references, job descriptions, certificates, and job advertisements. The majority of the process is coordinated efficiently via email.

Do you specialise in any particula job types?

What are your fees based on?
