The Perfect Resume Australia, Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane offers professional resume writing services, cover letters, selection criteria, and LinkedIn updates. Read on to find out how The Perfect Resume was founded.
Melissa Peacock, the Founder of The Perfect Resume was once told 'you are too young to be an Executive, no-one will take you seriously'. With that comment, she was dedicated to changing people's mindsets, she studied about organisational culture, leadership and empowered people to achieve their dreams, by cultivating self-confidence, helping people to reflect and grow, and ultimately influence the way people see them.
Melissa then realised that people have all the relevant skills and passion to land the job they want, but they were still not succeeding in being shortlisted for an interview.
Backed with a Master in Public Health, and a Senior Manager who had personally read thousands of resumes and hired hundreds of people throughout her career, Melissa was no stranger to research and decided to research the psychology behind a Manager selecting a candidate to be shortlisted, or not shortlisted.
She worked alongside her Human Resources Officer and found out what made her shortlist a candidate before the resume was passed to Melissa as a 'shortlisted candidate'. The process was as follows:
From end-to-end, the process took two weeks!
Melissa was intrigued and dug through the rejected applicants, all 250 of them. She found hidden gems, highly skilled people who were passionate and would have been perfect for the role, however, their application was rejected by the ATS system because their resume was not formatted correctly!
The list went on and on, and got crazier! Until there was a neat pile of "YES" candidates!
Melissa was determined to give the rejected people a chance. They had skills and experiences to succeed, families to feed, bills to pay, and every single one of them deserved happiness. She would have loved to be able to hire them all, but she couldn't, she only had one position available in her department budget. So she decided to open The Perfect Resume to help them create a resume, cover letter, key selection criteria, or LinkedIn profile, that would get their application to stand out, and be automatically added to the shortlist pile.
Melissa also studied colour psychology and applies this to the resumes that The Perfect Resume now creates.

Perfect for corporate professionals, school leavers, graduates or those looking for a new job, The Perfect Resume (TPR) is a career service catering for entry-level and graduates through to C-level executives and Board-level professionals across all industries. Our Career Counsellors come from management and are 100% dedicated to helping candidates achieve their chosen career direction. The average Australian spends 75,000 hours at work in their lifetime. At TPR we work with individuals to guide them into a job they are truly passionate about. We have two main service offerings:
Unfortunately, the human element has been removed from the initial stages of recruitment. Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) have replaced junior HR roles. Once upon a time, human eyes would initially scan candidate’s resume for keywords and identify whether they were a suitable candidate or not. Today, the ATS robot scans candidates resume for keywords. Unlike a human, who can scan the entire page and admire fancy fonts etc. ATS systems are rigid. If the candidate’s resume is not in the correct format, they will be deemed unsuccessful without a human even seeing the effort they have placed into their application.
TPR can help the candidate succeed not only by creating a new resume that passes through the gates of ATS software. Our resumes are modern and graphically designed to help the candidate stand out from others positively. Resume's are created with a focus on quality over quantity as sadly, the candidate has just six seconds for the candidate’s resume to impress their new employer and for them to decide whether the candidate will be shortlisted or not. Our Professional Resume Writers have received thousands of resumes and hired hundreds of people throughout their careers, therefore, they know exactly what managers look for in an application.
Perfect for corporate professionals, graduates or anyone looking for advance their career, a 60-minute career counselling session is extremely useful for providing direction to the candidate’s job search. Narrowing down exactly what the candidate wants and focusing their resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile towards those roles become easy when the candidate sets goals, understands their barriers to success, achievements etc. People who opt for a comprehensive package have greater success in landing an interview because the application is tailored to what the manager is looking for. The career session is conducted via phone call so the candidate can relax in the comfort of their own home.
