Nicole Wren, Founder/ Director and Principal Resume Writer
Nicole founded Resumes to Impress (Go Resumes) in 2012. A qualified psychologist with post-graduate qualifications in Human Resources, at that time Nicole was working in the vocational rehabilitation industry, assisting job seekers looking to make career transitions due to permanent injuries (including transitioning Defence members). These were often trade personnel who could no longer work 'on the tools' due to significant physical disabilities.
After discussions with these individuals it was obvious they had transferrable skills suitable for a variety of different careers, but their resumes didn't do them justice! No wonder they weren't getting a look-in on the jobs they were applying for! This piqued Nicole's interest in resume writing and she began to utilise her skills in interviewing and professional writing to ensure each applicant's resume reflected those 'hidden' skills that were needed to show the employer they were up to the job. The satisfaction gained from supporting these individuals secure their dream roles after challenging periods for them was immense.
From there, the business was born. Since then, Nicole has further honed her skills in resume writing, cover letter writing and selection criteria writing, and she has developed a unique, systemised method to uncover the hidden skills and talents of jobseekers in order to highlight their suitability for the job they want. Working closely with a range of industry leaders across industries including mining and construction, health and education, she understands exactly what employers want to see, in terms of resume and application content and design. More than that, she understands what questions to ask applicants to ensure relevant information is conveyed.
