Frank Beretin

Chief Financial Officer

My resume required an extensive overhaul. With Tom’s assistance and guidance, I will travel to my next role with a new degree of confidence. I have been getting positive responses from recruiters and am in the running for four senior roles. Tom’s work is incredible. I strongly recommend his services and no doubt I will continue to use them for many years to come

Nicholas O’Neill

Compliance Manager

I was referred to Tom by a friend who was really happy with the professional quality of Tom’s work, and I’m equally as happy with what Tom did for my CV. Tom is an expert in getting you to focus on how your
own contributions and successes directly impacted the business, not just a list of skills and experience.

Tom always delivers – it’s all personalised – very honest and very direct – you pay for what you get: a professional who knows what’s required to help you get the edge.

Michael Banton

Chief Executive, Chief Operating Officer, Board Director

I am being considered as one of the applicants for the CEO role. Out of 100 candidates, 11 were interviewed. The resume you did for me was fantastic. It gave me a lot of confidence. Any chance I get to promote your services, I will pass your details on.

Nick Moutos

Chief Financial Officer

Tom was a pleasure to deal with and my new resume is brilliant. It is now visually appealing, clear and truly highlights who I am and what I have done. I feel now I have the edge. I strongly recommend Tom.

Samuel Stewart

Senior Manager of Strategy Big 4 Accounting Firm

Former Research Principal, City of Sydney

I just wanted to let you know that I got the job. Great resume, great coaching. Couldn’t be happier. I hadn’t
written a resume in over 10 years so wasn’t sure where to start. After several discussions, he produced
something that was pure gold. I landed a job at a salary level that I never expected, and the cost was
paid back by literally more than ten-fold.


I also recommend the interview coaching. I thought that it would all be about practicing answers, but
Tom actually really provided a value add, taught me about getting into the right psychological space etc.
Real value for money. I thought about cheaper options, but I’m glad I didn’t. You get what you pay for.

Mark Graff

Chief Financial Officer

I used this resume on a Sunday. The company called me on Monday with senior management
assembled. They wanted to offer me the job on the spot. I negotiated the salary and they responded with
an offer three days later …… CFO!

and have gone back to Tom regularly. The quality of Tom’s work is beyond reproach, his methods and

provide this recommendation.

Lloyd Weedall

Director – Australian Department of Health

Tom has worked on my resume a few times and has done a great job in focusing it on the reader/decision maker and making it look very professional. Tom goes beyond the call of duty in his work and has also given me invaluable advice on a few occasions.

Julie Elliot

Board Chair, Chief Executive – Financial Services Sector

Tom wrote my resume and LinkedIn Profile and has since performed several revisions for me. The consistent feedback I receive is that it is the best resume anyone has seen. The format is visually engaging and clear and his writing style creates a compelling career narrative. He knows what recruiters are looking for and keeps current with trends. The process is also fast and efficient. I cannot recommend Tom highly enough.

Peter McLean

Board Director & Advisor, Chief Executive, Strategy Consultant, Leadership Coach

My resume was looking way too tired, way too busy, had way too much info and was way off target at my level. Tom quickly revised it to create a great look, while focusing in on more of the substance of my achievements and leadership/executive experience, making valuable suggestions and asking good questions. He was very responsive and prompt and then assisted in applying my resume changes to my LinkedIn profile. The end result is that I’m highly pleased with Tom’s new version of my resume with a great-looking and reading format that I can adapt at need. Highly recommended.

Katrena Friel

Chief Executive,

Tom is simply fabulous. I now have a great directors resume and an updated LinkedIn Profile. You can really see him using his 21 years’ experience in every tweak till the final version is done. Very impressed, I learnt a lot from this consummate professional. Thank you for a terrific service and outcome.

Nathan Wicks

Manager, Employee Services – large New South Wales Government Agency

Tom was recommended to me several years ago as someone who could not only assist me with getting my CV up to date, but who could help me to get it to “jump out of the page” when recruiters read it. I am pleased to report he not only did that, but thankfully he continues to do it and he’s someone I readily recommend. I continue to stay in touch with Tom to ensure that my resume reflects my achievements and prepares me for the next step in my career. With Tom’s help, I secured an interview for a highly competitive position and was offered the role by lunch time!

Gertraud Denscher

Senior Change Manager – Major Telecommunications Company

Resume writing is an art. Even if you are very good at writing and communicating, a resume you write will never be as good as one written by an expert. I first engaged Tom Hannemann a few years ago for a resume overhaul when I was looking to change jobs. I had previously worked with a professional resume writer and while the resume he produced was better than mine, it didn’t get me the results I wanted. In contrast, the resume Tom wrote was very impressive. He uses your inputs and puts them into a format that emphasises your achievements. I could never have produced a resume like that myself, even after weeks of rewriting and refining. Using this resume I found the perfect job for me, so my investment paid off very quickly. Since then, I have engaged Tom to update my resume, and I have recommended him to family members, friends and colleagues. All of them have been extremely happy with his work. If you want to make sure you stand out from the crowd, I highly recommend that you work with Tom.

Karl Sice

Country Business Leader – Multinational IT Company

I first hired Tom when applying for a big role in the U.S. and he and I got working on professionalising my profile. To say Tom adds value would be an understatement…he selflessly went about introducing improvements and objectivity so much so that I’ve retained him each year since to refresh my documents and more recently to coach me. His work is first class, his expertise obvious and he doesn’t charge like a madman! Oh and…I got that role in the U.S. and several others since with Tom’s support. I’ve referred several colleagues to Tom over the years and every single one has thanked me many times over since. It goes without saying that I recommend him unconditionally.

Lisa Mitchell

Internationally Experienced Director & Senior Executive

It is my great pleasure to be writing this recommendation for Tom. Tom rewrote both my LinkedIn profile and my CV at a time when I had many ‘irons in the fire’, and was not super clear about my direction. As a professional resume writer Tom was able to effectively articulate for me, what I could not articulate for myself. My LinkedIn Profile is key to my virtual identity and provides important social proof to more than 10 thousand contacts and clients. My CV has been used many times over with great success, all thanks to Tom. I highly recommend Tom’s very professional approach and know that his writing will open doors for you, that you may never have imagined!

Having Tom structure and write my resume presented my credentials to prospective employers
in a highly professional manner. Tom’s professionalism and responsiveness to his clients’ needs
are second to none. His abilities to effectively communicate my experiences and achievements
are exceptional. I highly recommend Tom to not only write your resume, but to also coach you in the interview process and I have no doubt you’ll derive great benefit in working with him.

I engaged Tom to help me re-engineer my resume a few years ago and re-engaged him to refresh it following new roles. Tom is an absolute delight to work with and has a great sense of humour. He is very professional and once you undertake the structured process with Tom, it also prepares you for interviews down the track. Highly recommended.

I am sure his work was a key element of my success story. He is the best! Thank you, Tom!

Mitsuru Murai

Director of Customer Care –
Global Software Company

I have been using Tom’s services for about 15 years now and I believe that without his help and skills I would not have had the great career path I have had. He is able to make my technical background in the IT industry understandable to almost anyone. He spends time to understand exactly what you are doing and have done and express it in a way that is to the point and effective, and is aligned with the roles you are applying for. I have easily been able to secure interviews and roles position and have often been told by interviewers that my resume stood out due to the content and formatting. I highly recommend Tom’s work and have referred his services to many friends who have also been extremely happy.
