Sense of Direction

Job applications

Are you tired of applying for hundreds of job and never hearing back?
Have you been using the same CV for years and wondering why it's not working for you any more?
Not sure how to even start writing a modern CV, especially if you're changing careers?

Then you're in the right place!

The bad news is there aren't any shortcuts - it takes time and effort to write a great CV, cover letter and selection criteria
The good news is, I'm here to help! With over 20 years experience of both recruiting and helping clients write applications, I know exactly what employers are looking for - a tailored application written for a specific job. Which is why my service includes a free 20 minute consultation to see if you are a good fit for the job you want to apply for. If you are a good fit we can work together to help you stand out from the crowd. 

CV writing service

With the Sense of Direction CV writing service you won't get a colourful, jazzy, graphically designed CV. You will get one that is tailored for a specific job and formatted so a recruiter (human or computer) can quickly and easily see that you are a good match.

Price - $165 including a 30 minute consultation

Cover letter service

Many people make the mistake of thinking a cover letter is optional - it isn't! Even if the application doesn't ask you to include one, you should. 

Recruiters quickly weed out applications that are generic and have been submitted with little thought, research or care.

Price - $165 including a 30 minute consultation

Selection criteria

Many public sector jobs require a separate document to address essential selection criteria. There's quite an art to writing responses which demonstrate how you meet the criteria. 

In order for your application to be even be considered by the recruiter, you need to be able to meet all the essential criteria. An initial consultation will determine if this is the case and a further consultation may be required to gather all your information.

Price - $330 including a 45 minute consultation

Interview coaching

Most of us find job interviews nerve-wracking. We don't know what questions we'll be asked, how to answer them or how to present ourselves.


The interview coaching session teaches you what to say and how to say it in a way that shows the selection panel that you're the best match for them and the job.

Price - $330 for a 2 hour session


CV + cover letter - $300

CV + cover letter + selection criteria - $600


Do I have to pay for the service every time I apply for a different job?

If the jobs have very similar selection criteria then you can probably tailor your applications yourself. But if you can't or don't have the time, then yes, you pay each time you use the service. 

When will I receive my application?

You will receive your document(s) a week after the consultation. Depending on availability there may be the possibility of a 48 hour turnaround for an extra $100.
