We create premium quality resumes for energy and resources professionals that clearly define their value proposition, so they get the interviews they truly desire.

Horizon Resume Solutions writes the highest quality resumes in Australia, most specifically for energy and resource profesisonals in the oil and gas, mining and minerals processing, civil infrastructure and renewable energy sectors, but for many others as well. Our expertise has been gained through 18.5 years of senior in-house and agency recruitment experience on a global scale, and 8 years of full-time resume writing for the energy and resources sector.

Your resume is one of the most important personal documents you’ll ever own, and it’s undoubtedly one of the most difficult and time-consuming to master. Creating a high performing resume; one that gets you more call-backs or interviews is an art form, and when the competition’s high it’s an art form you need to conquer.

We are the best quality resume writer in Australia for:

C-Suite executive resumes, senior and middle management resumes, offshore (OIM, DOCM, bell diving supervisor, marine engineer, ROV technician etc.) resumes, engineering and trades resumes (all disciplines), graduate resumes, construction resumes, commissioning resumes, maintenance resumes, TAR/shutdown resumes, process/production technician resumes, operator/maintainer resumes, rope access, crane operator, rigger and scaffolder resumes, contracts and procurement resumes, project management resumes, project controls resumes, land access resumes, QA/QC resumes, ESG resumes, HSSE resumes, HR resumes, administration resumes, and more!

Our understanding of highly technical and specialised roles, combined with many years’ experience in the hands-on implementation, usage and management of the biggest and best ATS’s (Applicant Tracking Systems) in the world, actually inside Tier 1 energy and resources companies, is a key point of difference. Additionally, we have spent a large amount of time on Upstream CSG (from wellsites to underground gathering systems to FCS’s and CPP’s), alumina refining, and bauxite, coal and gold mining and processing sites, walking lines with superintendents to understand plant, equipment, systems and process. This combined with our many years in internal/in-house recruitment roles and impeccable formatting standards mean the content and presentation of your resume is of the highest quality possible.

Our ethos is to exceed the service expectations of everyone we work with. We’ve helped thousands of energy and resource professionals transform their resume to levels of professionalism they didn’t know existed, and that provide a new lease of confidence in their abilities because they’ve never seen their talents written with so much clarity and confidence. We’d love to do the same for you.

Don’t just take our word for it though. Here’s some of the reviews from clients that have realised tangible value for their career and financial goals by using our resume writing services.

We create premium quality Cover Letters for energy and resources professionals that clearly define their value proposition, so they get the interviews they truly desire.

They key purpose of a cover letter is to introduce and persuade. It should be a highly targeted and succinct business communication, not an essay overloaded with buzzwords. An easy way to disengage a recruiter or hiring manager is to submit a cover letter that is too longwinded. Such a letter can easily create a negative perception right from the get-go.

Horizon Resume Solutions is a specialist provider of cover letter writing services. Through 18.5 years of senior in-house and agency recruitment experience, and 8 years of dedicated writing for the energy and resources sector, we know how to create cover letters that assist in getting you call-backs and interviews.

Anyone requiring a highly professional cover letter to address specific criteria can benefit from our services. You can also refer to our article on creating high quality cover letters.

We create premium quality LinkedIn Profiles for energy and resources professionals that clearly define their value proposition, so they get the approaches by recruiters that they truly desire.

What is your brand and is your LinkedIn Page getting you found?

Across our 18.5 years of international recruitment experience, and 8 years of writing the best LinkedIn pages for energy and resources professionals that money can buy, we’ve seen dramatic changes in how recruiters find and attract talent. LinkedIn has undoubtedly become one of the most used online platforms for recruiters searching for talent. A high-quality LinkedIn profile with keyword optimised content is critical for anyone wanting to be directly approached for new career opportunities.

There aren’t many recruiters that don’t use LinkedIn to search for talent, as it can greatly reduce their cost per hire and time to fill. They mostly use keyword searches, so a keyword optimised LinkedIn page is essential to help you come up at the top of their searches. And when they see your page and find polished presentation, positive perceptions can be easily created, which can increase the chance of being presented job opportunities that you didn’t even know about.

Also, when you make a job application, your resume may be cross-referenced with your LinkedIn page to check for inconsistencies, especially in dates and titles. Any inconsistencies can easily raise a red flag for the recruiter, so your LinkedIn must accurately reflect key information from your resume.

With +875 million members and +58 million registered companies, LinkedIn is by far the largest professional networking site in the world, and if used correctly it’s an exceptional platform for initiating and developing business relationships within your areas of professional interest.

Horizon Resume Solutions is a specialist provider of LinkedIn profiling and page content services. We’ve worked with LinkedIn since 2003 so we are an expert user, and we know how to make your LinkedIn page shine to your best advantage.

What our clients say...

"There are not enough words to describe my appreciation to Chris for the excellent work he achieved on modifying my CV, rarely these days do you come across someone who is talented at both the big picture ideas and executing the small detail. I was delighted with the presentation and especially appreciated his suggested modifications, the extra time and effort he put into the document including my cover letter and LinkedIn profile were certainly worth it.

Chris builds strong relationships and ensures successful outcomes in a professional and timely manner I was particularly impressed with continual communication throughout the process something I have never had before in revamping my CV the final outcome was awesome so much so that on finalisation of my cover letter and CV and submitting to four advertised positions in my field I was invited to the whole four interview's and successfully signed a wonderful contract.

I believe strongly this came about by Chris highlighting my strengths and experiences and covering all aspects of my qualifications in my field. Chris has gone way above my expectations in completing my cover letter and resume not to mention my now professional LinkedIn profile that matches all my documentation, I have no hesitation in highly recommending Chris to one and all for the professional delivery of resume writing services.
