Resume or Curriculum Vitae

This is generally the first contact with your potential employer. Alana will promote your uniqueness and highlight your skills and background in relation to the advertised position or company, in the ‘language’ of the field. This is your unique marketing tool and helps you to ‘sell yourself’ in a competitive environment.

Job Application Cover Letter & Selection Criteria

Alana’s vast experience in this area will ensure that your cover letter is written in accordance with the expectations of the employer. This may be a 1-page letter through to a longer document that addresses a list of selection criteria for a company or public service application. Some companies or government departments may also have a word limit or require a specific way of submitting your application that highlights your skills.

Letters for all occasions

Letter writing can include short and succinct messages, e.g. courteous job resignations, through to letters that explain, complain, inform, clarify, promote or request information or consideration, e.g. requesting cancellation of a traffic fine.

Business Profiles

We prepare the text for business profiles that many clients use for marketing their products and services from simple 1-page flyers through to comprehensive business summaries.

Many individuals and businesses are nominated for awards each year. Then the hard work begins – to prepare a document that supports the nomination. We prepare your text to accompany your photographs or write more complex responses to specific questions contained in business awards and competitions.

Sponsorship Proposals

Gaining sponsorship from the corporate sector requires a well-written proposal. We work closely with you in developing proposals from simple requests through to completion of complex submissions or completing specific forms and applications. We ensure that your proposal clearly states the mutual benefits that will come from sponsorship.

Editing of documents

We provide editing services in grammar, spelling, punctation, syntax and clarification of ideas. Documents may include a simple business proposal to your boss for a pay increase, through to editing of business plans, assignments, reports, policy and procedure manuals and job applications.
