MEDIA RELEASE: ‘For Immediate Release’


Professional resume writer offers free online global assistance to job seekers, gaining amazing results.  

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Wednesday, 15 July 2009 -

Tired of reading boring, lifeless, ineffective

CVs, and feeling many job seekers in today’s competitive employment market were being unfairly

overlooked, Andrea Drew of Impressive Resumes this week launched her free resume workshops at

Eastern Regional Libraries Ringwood, Melbourne Victoria.  These have been a big hit, with a waiting list

of over 50 participants.  Today Trevor, of Vermont, upon immediately implementing Andrea’s

recommendations, gained a job interview for a Senior Management position within 4 hours.  This was

despite being unemployed for over 12 months. 

Impressive Resumes was formed in 1998 by Andrea Drew, a professional writer with a background in

writing, HR and customer service.  The company not only has provided a service writing resumes, cover

letters and government applications over the last ten years, but provides a free no obligation resume

critique service online and delivers a complimentary resume workshop in the local library.  

Clients upload their existing resume via the “ordering” page of the website.  Within 48 hours of receipt, a

critique is forwarded to the client with red notes/recommendations and suggestions for improvement put

forward.  Similarly the website offers some 40 pages of advice on all aspects of application preparation,

and the resume workshops are a facility for those residing in Metropolitan Melbourne with limited funds

seeking a ‘face-to-face’ service.

Resume workshops are held at Ringwood library in Melbourne Australia whilst the online resume

critiques can be accessed across the globe by visiting the following website

http://www.impressiveresumes.com.au and simply following the prompts to the ‘pricing and orders’ page. 

Online resume critiques are obligation and payment free, whilst the resume workshops are by gold coin

donation (with all proceeds going to charity – the Citizens Advice Bureau)

When asked about her motivations for providing a free service Andrea replied “Whilst I am in business to

make money, over the last ten years I have noticed a trend whereby a job seekers mistakes in their

resumes are costing them valuable opportunities.  This coupled with my understanding of the impact this

can have upon individual lives (gaining employment or lack thereof) prompted me to formulate the

complimentary resume workshops and free critiques gaining the satisfaction of knowing I am making a

real difference, and contributing to the economy, and also the community at large. 

“I thought I’d let you know that I was just interviewed via telephone less than 2 hours after sending off my

new resume with your suggestions and recommendations put into place.  You were right, it has worked.  

I think this is something you should mention at the next resume workshop, so others understand the

importance of your advice and the effect it can have.  I’ll definitely keep you informed, and if it comes to

anything I’ll definitely be taking you out to lunch!” Trevor R, Senior Sales Manager, Vermont Melbourne

"I have been using my resume and thankfully success!  I've been accepted at one of the first jobs I applied

for and start on Monday which is a HUGE relief.   Thanks for your help with the resume, it is so much

more professional than I could have created myself and you helped to create order and sense to my skills

and work experience.  I have had feedback also from a recruitment company that they found

it be very professional, so thank you

for that."  L.R.  Travel Consultant/Admin Manager, Professional Resume
