At The Hired we are transparent about pricing, and value our services from $85 per hour for graduates to $250 per hour if you have more advanced goals. 

After our initial consultation, we'll present you with an estimate based on your needs, and you can decide how to proceed.  

Package pricing is available if you choose an ongoing coaching relationship.

You own the results

Any documents, photos or portfolios we create for you are yours - we will supply final documents in PDF as well as an editable file type so you truly own your career. 

Every document service includes at least one round of edits.

 

More than just a resume service.

 

At The Hired, we have the privilege of getting to know our clients personally. Here are some of their stories and nice things they have to say about us. 

 

Mark

the International graduate

Being new to Melbourne with a new degree, Mark knows first-hand how tricky the Australian job market can be. Mark worked with The Hired to practice his interview skills and for an insight into what hiring managers look for in a new graduate. 

"I tried to research interviews and CVs online, but it wasn't very useful because all the information is the same. You taught me the most, and I especially liked learning about what job ads really mean."

Jacqui

The expat

For four years, Jacqui had a high-flying career with an airline based in the Middle East - but on her return to Australia, her next step was unclear.

"You helped me work out the kind of jobs I should really be applying for, and taught me not to undersell myself. I really loved the structure for writing cover letters. It's awesome and made applying for jobs so much easier!"

Aaron

the new directioner

After working in fitness and personal training, Aaron decided to upgrade to a career more aligned to his qualifications in architecture and small business. He came to The Hired to polish up his resume and professional profile. 

"From what I had before to what it is now - there's no comparison. My new resume is so professional, and I even have a portfolio section. It made such a huge difference to how recruiters responded to me."

Rebecca

the parent & the Professional

With her daughter heading to kindergarten, Rebecca's biggest concern was not being taken seriously when she returned to her financial services role in a part-time capacity. Her confidence on the back-burner, she needed to get her head back into the game. 

"After a few years of being at home, I felt overwhelmed at the thought of going back to work. I know I'm qualified, but having someone to coach me through my crisis of confidence to and to help me get my head around all the new jargon in my industry was invaluable."

Introducing Jeanette.

 

Jeanette Cheah founded The Hired in 2015, and is passionate about helping people progress.

"The most interesting thing about helping people in their careers is that everyone has a story and a background that makes them unique.

What I do is help my clients extract that narrative and put it into words - whether on a resume, in an elevator pitch or in a social media profile." 

Jeanette has spent over 14 years working at some of Australia's largest corporations, including ANZ and Origin Energy. Her career has spanned marketing, product development, strategy, digital innovation and technical communications, and she has led small teams through to large projects.

Jeanette is a dedicated professional mentor and advocate for diversity. She is an instructor in marketing and presentation skills at General Assembly in Melbourne, a tertiary guest lecturer, and a returning speaker at Melbourne Knowledge Week. Jeanette is also the co-founder of the Gingerbread Demolition non-profit event.

With a Bachelor of Sociology, a Bachelor of Economics, and a Post Graduate qualification in Integrated Marketing Communications, Jeanette is open to collaborative opportunities, including speaking, content creation, skilled volunteering, and all activities supporting women in business and entrepreneurship.
