Hi, I'm Hannah! I have a background in both recruitment and communications, and now run 'It's All About You' from home around my four-year-old twins. 'It's All About You' is designed to assist everyone from school leavers to senior executives with producing a CV that makes them stand out from the crowd.
Your most valuable job-hunting tool is a well-written, well-structured and accurate CV that describes your relevant work experience and key skills and makes the employer want to interview you. There are lots of templates available online that you can use to build your CV but these don't usually do as a good job of reflecting your individuality as a custom-written one does. In addition, if you are using your CV to apply for a specific role, it's important to make sure it's tailored to emphasise your suitability for that role. Your CV is the first impression employers get of you, so it's crucial to ensure that it's a positive one.
This is where I come in. I have an extensive background in both communications and recruitment, giving me the right mix of skills to help you create your perfect CV. I can also assist you with writing a cover letter if required. More information about me can be found below the Pricing information, but you can also visit my LinkedIn page or Facebook business page.
Level One: A detailed edit/revamp of your CV with suggestions around sentence structure, format and content as well as a full proof read - $150.00. Suitable for junior through to intermediate level clients.
Level Two: Create a new CV from scratch. Details of your work experience and skills can be provided to me via email, phone call or face-to-face meeting, and I will then develop the content into a fully functional CV - $200.00.
Level Three: For executive level candidates with longer and more detailed CVs that need a complete overhaul. Service includes a full proof read and edit, review of formatting and structure (and related adjustments if necessary) plus suggestions around additions/deletions of content to make your CV more up-to-date and relevant - $250.00.
Cover Letters: If you require a cover letter written for you for a particular role, I can help - $60.00 per letter.
LinkedIn Pages: I am also able to give your LinkedIn page an overhaul (or create one for you if you don't already have one) - $80-$100 depending on your needs.
Interview Coaching: I can provide intensive interview coaching either over the phone or in person - $80 for up to an hour, and then $80 per hour thereafter.
Gift Vouchers: If you know someone who you'd like to gift a CV review to, then just email me at the address below.
If you need help with something that's not covered above, please email me and I will do my best to assist! Or to book an existing service, please email me at email@example.com below, or call/txt me on
I graduated from Auckland University of Technology in 2002 with a Bachelor of Communications, majoring in Multimedia. Following that, I worked in the communications department of a global financial services firm, where my role consisted of writing content for both print and web and coordinating a number of websites. After four years, I moved into the role of Web Client Manager for the firm's NZ arm of the business, and did this until 2010. Whilst in this role I also worked in my spare time as a freelance designer and content editor for an online magazine (which won a Netguide Award and was nominated for several more).
In 2010 I decided to change careers and try recruitment; something that had interested me for years. I started working at Madison Recruitment in Auckland as a Consultant in August 2010 and quickly built up a base of loyal candidates and clients in the business support area. Whilst these candidates and clients spanned a number of diverse industries, I most often worked with those in the marketing/communications/web area (which enabled me to leverage my personal experience).
I became a Senior Consultant at the end of 2014 and moved back to a more generalised desk, working on senior roles $80k+, until I left to go on maternity leave at the end of 2015.
My time in recruitment exposed me to hundreds, if not thousands of CVs - from entry-level to C-suite level - and enabled me to build up a comprehensive knowledge of what makes a great CV (and what doesn't). Combined with my life-long love of writing (and the fact that I am a stickler for correct grammar, punctuation and vocabulary) I am in a great position to help you craft a CV that employers will love.
Currently, in addition to my general CV work, I also work as an external CV consultant to OCG Recruitment and Benestar (an EAP company).
