Let me guess… you hate selling yourself?

Then the solution is simple: don’t.

It’s the secret most good resume writers won’t tell you: you don’t have to sell yourself.

Instead, an exceptional resume and a strong job strategy will make you irresistible to employers; it makes you easy to be ‘bought’.

So, if you’re a yawn on paper, the phone is running cold, and the only thing flooding into your email inbox is tumbleweeds…

then you’ve found the right place for help creating staggeringly good documents that

highlight you and your zone of genius.





It’s no secret that the job market is highly competitive.

Many companies receive hundreds, sometimes thousands, of unsolicited resumes each week! The average job advertisement attracts 130+ applications, making it difficult to stand out in a sea of sameness.

It’s not simply enough to have the skills to do the job. You need the skills and resources to actually get the job.

Imagine being pursued for opportunities, rather than standing in line for them.

Are you a university graduate, professional, manager, executive or businessperson who is:

  • Strategising your next career move or promotion and need a powerful resume that accentuates your achievements, contributions and potential to get you where you want to go?
  • Transitioning from self-employment or business ownership and need help translating your experiences in business to those with relevance and appeal to an employer?
  • Graduating, after investing considerable time and money into your education and need a resume that translates what you’ve learned into something marketable and appealing to employers?
  • Changing careers or re-entering the workforce after a break and stuck on identifying what exactly it is you have to offer an employer, much less make it shine on your resume?

I create resumes and career tools for people like you, every single day.

Developing a professional level resume is a complex process, but it doesn’t have to be.

It’s not possible for you to be at the forefront of continually evolving resume trends, recruitment technologies, or employer expectations.

That’s why I’m here to help.

Stop wasting your precious time, energy, and opportunities. 

You need a resume that illustrates your greatness.

Hi, I’m Stacey Murray

I founded The Resume Creative in 2016, with a simple but powerful mission: to help people find meaningful employment and build fulfilling careers.

Being a Certified Advanced Resume Writer made this award-winning resume writing practice just one of 12 in Australia. I am beyond proud of the employment (and life) goals we’ve helped thousands of people bring to life. 

I am even more proud to have this mission continued, handing the reins over to Mercedes Wilson in 2020. I have had the pleasure of working with Mercedes over recent years as she provided editorial support for countless projects, including more than a few resumes, copy writing assignments and award submissions, and by Mercedes learning and applying advanced resume writing techniques, along with her skilled, meticulous eye and natural flair for words, they were all successful. More times than I can count, I have been asked the question: “Who writes resumes for resume writers like you?”. To this, I have a simple answer: I wouldn’t trust anyone other than Mercedes to do my very own resume.

If you are a university graduate, professional, manager, executive or businessperson ready to:

  • Strategically find your next opportunity, and ready to find it (or have it find you!) much sooner;
  • Realise the depth of what you have to offer employers and leverage that value to support you to secure better remuneration and benefits;
  • Invest in bettering your future and maximising your career prospects, or;
  • Polish your profile and personal brand to position yourself for board/committee appointment, business development or tendering opportunities

…then you’re in the right place for career tools that cut through the noise and get you the job you want–sooner.

Your next opportunity awaits you.

Your Investment

Did you know that 2017 statistics reveal the average job search spans approximately 27 weeks (that’s 6.25 months!). If you shorten your job search by just one week you’ll likely have made your investment back (plus some!).

Due to COVID19 and the strain the pandemic has put on individuals and communities within Australia, The Resume Creative has temporarily reduced our fees to offer some relief and hope to those wanting to look to the future by taking the opportunity to prepare for the next chapter of their career journey. Though these price reductions are for a limited time only, we hope this small gesture allows others to illustrate their greatness!

Frequently Asked Questions

How quickly can you have my package ready?

Crafting highly effective and tailored documents should be given the due time and care it needs and deserves. Therefore, I do not do ‘rush’ jobs or imminent deadlines. Documents thrown together at the eleventh hour aren’t going to yield you the results (and return on investment) you deserve. I work with clients to develop documents to meet application deadlines and am happy to provide an estimated turnaround time based on your specific needs and situation.
