Thank you for the professional ‘Career Launch Package’ that you tailored for my specific needs. Hats off to you for the resume you have written for me!! My resume reflects your immeasurable expertise. You've put an overly crammed information into a relevant format by strategising key information. Indeed, you have made my resume into a power packed capsule to attract the right job opportunities. In the covering letter you've sent the right message across to a prospective employer, in a highly effective manner. It is presented in a way that the chances for a job interview are much higher. The business card was well designed - short and to the point, highlighting the required qualifications, experience and relevant skills for an ESL job. The career coaching sessions are really power packed with ideas and strategies for job search and to start my career. It was motivating and it boosted my confidence with strategic approaches for my job search. Overall, the whole career coaching experience was very enlightening, enriching and an eye opener.

Vidhya helped take my CV to the next level. She invests in you as a client, gets to know your strengths, and guides you through the process of making change. Helping me tremendously was a coaching conversation, identifying what it is that I want to do, and also what would not be suitable for me at this stage in life. Recognising that a change of direction takes a lot of courage and energy, coupled with talking through your motivation, inspired me to apply for what is now my current position. Thank you, Vidhya!

A job loss was so imminent that it was ruining my confidence & wearing on my self-esteem. I was really depressed as I felt I couldn't compete in the job market - most job ads were looking for native speakers with a Bachelor's in English. In just one sitting with Vidhya, she made me revisit my strengths & capture my niche. I have a BSN (Nursing), years of teaching nursing concepts, CELTA Pass B & IELTS 8. She has a knack for motivating the most demotivated in me! Her insistence that I rebrand myself on Linkedin immediately & without delay inspired me to do so within minutes of being coached. Only 20 hours into updating my profile, I already got a message from a head-hunter! The following day, a message from another recruiter came in! My confidence restored, I began to anticipate a brighter future as I had discovered my market value! Vidhya's expertise has drawn me to spotlight what I can do to be a standout in a competitive market. I was so fixated on the "closed door" that I failed to see other doors that were in fact, open, better & waiting for me to see! I marvel at Vidhya's passion, positivity & exceptional knowledge of her craft. Her touch brings instantaneous & tangible results! I'm her happiest client!

A family member was told that his company was closing shop in one month, so he was in desperate need of a new job and soon. He had loads of experience on various high level projects in his field, but his resume hadn’t been updated in a while, and with the stress of imminent unemployment, he didn’t know where to begin. That’s when Vidhya came in as an answer to his problems. She took his resume, processed all the information and repackaged it to highlight his skills, experience, and VALUE to prospective employers. Her reorganization of his resume also made it easier to set up a LinkedIn account that immediately connected him with a host of employers that were filling his inbox with inquiries! Within a day of submitting his new resume he had a job offer with a contract sent for him to sign. Upon a face to face interview a day later, the contract was changed to offer him a senior position in the company! I am sure that the confidence that Vidhya gave him through her work on his resume helped him nail the interview and get the job offer that he deserved. Don’t be fooled with the simplicity of the final resume Vidhya produces. There’s nothing simple about it. In fact, I’d more accurately call it “elegant.” It takes HOURS of work to look at a resume that spans pages (probably more pages than an HR person will read) and reduce it to the most important elements, presented in a way that gives your resume (and its all-important first page) MAXIMUM IMPACT. It’s this kind of resume that gets people noticed, and HIRED by employers, and for that alone, Vidhya’s work is invaluable to anyone seriously wishing to upgrade their career prospects.

"I am pleasantly surprised by the 'make over' my resume received. You are really good at what you do. You positioned my strengths for optimum visibility. My resume is now easy to read and very clear. My interviewer actually complimented my resume. The front page of the resume - 'prime real estate' as you call it reflects all the critical messages for the job I am going for. I actually got quicker responses than I normally would for interviews".

"Vidhya recently refreshed my resume and cover letter. Needless to say, I was left very impressed. My resume received a complete overhaul and it looks ready-to-go. One of her strengths is her innate ability to ask key questions to find out my contributions and position my contributions as achievements. Every line she wrote was critically positioned to sell me for a better pay rise. I would not apply for another job without getting her to do my resume. Highly recommend Vidhya for getting your resume done before you apply for that job."
C. CormackCPE, Product Specialist, Telstra
"Vidhya, Thank you for your outstanding work on cleaning up my Resume. The strategies that you recommended was so instrumental in landing my new position with a whopping pay rise. You showed me how to maximise my sales achievements and other achievements that leveraged me to make an impressive career move - the biggest move ever in my career. My employers were so impressed with my resume, that I was offered the job after my first interview.
I wouldn't have gotten the interview if not for the strategies presented by you. The marketing knowledge you used in the resume was useful. You provide an invaluable service and I, for one, am most appreciative."

"I am extremely happy with the before and after effect Vidhya Raghavan has had on my resume. My resume is now very professional, simple, easy to follow and straight to the point. When applying for the next position up, I realised that my curriculum vitae looked a little 'tired' and needed a lot of work to even be considered for an interview. I consulted Vidhya Raghavan, to ask for some assistance in freshening up the resume, contents and to grab the interest of my target audience in the first few seconds.
After just a short time working with Vidhya, I realised that I had actually been using the same resume since school. The format and content hadn’t changed, although I had crossed many milestones in my career. Also, I wasn’t using “prime real estate”, to display my abilities and grab my audience to read on. Vidhya does not dismiss the conventional format but rather tweaks the traditional subheadings to ensure paramount information is represented up front. I really appreciate all the hard work she has put in and would highly recommend her."
S. Dionisopoulos, Trainer and Assessor, Telstra
"I am very impressed by Vidhya's professionalism in re-writing my CV. In the past, I wrote my own CV's and a whole lot of critical information was completely lost in too many words and several pages. Vidhya lifted the 'skills based keywords' to leap out on the pages for visibility. Vidhya's strategic positioning of skills sets and using 'prime real estate' on the resume set my resume miles apart from the original one. My application letter also written by her was power packed with action verbs and definitely designed to catch the attention of my reader. Not only that, Vidhya was able to capture and highlight all of this information in just half the number of pages I originally used! I wish I had known about Vidhya a few years / months ago, when I began applying for positions in Training / Assessment and IT."
