What our customers are saying...

CVJedi Melbourne played a key role getting me into the Renewable Energy Sector. Their resume kit service made my cv more competitive and the interview coaching for a Project Coordinator position within a major Australian Energy company secured me the job.
Diogo D Chaves, Melbourne January 2019
I highly recommend CV Jedi for anyone needing assistance with seeking employment. I used their services with resume writing in 2015 and was successful in securing a permanent position in banking. The same resume helped to secure a new position in the Council & Government sector in 2016 and so it was a no-brainer to use their services again to assist with an internal position within the department in 2018. The job market has changed and having a Perth career coach and being informed on how employers find potential employees is invaluable, I would also recommend CV Jedi for anyone serious about seeking employment.
