Hi, I’m Sharron Northcott, Founder of 4 Hour Resume.
Professional Resume Writers
Ten years ago, I was a sole parent working school hours and struggling to make ends meet. I decided to build a second revenue stream and drew on my past as a secretary in the legal system. I already had the document presentation skills, touch typing, grammar and spelling needed to produce a well laid out resume. I also happened to love the English language. Armed with these talents, I honed my skills, learning from one of Australia’s best Resume Writers.
It wasn’t easy to build a business. It took many attempts to get it right, even returning to a ‘real’ job out of frustration. However it didn’t take long before I realized I still wanted to work for myself helping people build their careers.
Over the years, I learnt that not all my customers fit into nice little boxes. In particular, tradies wanted a much faster result than the targeted package I offer. They also wanted to keep the process as simple as possible.
I was able to produce a document that managed to highlight their strengths in a much tighter timeframe hence the name ‘4 Hour Resume’. I now offer an Express Package guaranteed within 4 hours or your money back.
I also offer a Premium Package written in concise, ‘punchy’ language geared toward the role they seek. More time is taken to produce this document and is also highly recommended if you want to stand out from your competition.
Ultimately, I want to help people. Whether it’s chasing that dream job or merely putting food on the table – I am here to assist you with both.

Sharron, I just wanted to thank you. The resumes and cover letters you created for my family are absolutely beautiful and so professional…fantastic…AND they were successful – my daughter and her boyfriend, the “Jillaroo and Jackaroo”, are both now in the Northern Territory on a stationT STEPHENS
I got an interview almost immediately and I know it was the resume. I’ve handed out your business cards to a few of my work mates so expect a callJOSH T
Why do resumes cost anywhere between $70 to $900+?
I can hear the gasps from here…
With the no-frills $70 resumes you get a very basic resume with no real substance. Old school, they look more like a grocery list then a resume. More importantly, they do not showcase your strengths and the reasons why you should be hired over 100s of others.
Then you have the $900+ resumes. These actually serve a real purpose and are designed for the Executive’s and elite among us. As you add LinkedIn profiles, web resumes and YouTube videos the prices jump dramatically.
I feel a happy medium lies somewhere in between.
I believe you can have the best of both worlds that is why I offer cost-effective packages hitting that sweet spot in the middle. That a professional resume promoting why you are the perfect choice for the role on offer, needn’t cost the earth.
Why choose professional resume writers?
Recruiters often sift through hundreds of applications for a single role, and they become experts at quickly scanning text to look for key information and get a general idea of the candidate. Don’t make their job harder or your resume could end up in the bin.
Many applicants put together a resume without realising they have made a number of common mistakes that will hurt their chances of landing the job.
We know what employers look for when shortlisting candidates, allowing our resume writers to create a CV that highlights your strengths and separates you from the competition. We have a number of affordable packages available, including a student special; we can even refresh a resume and cover letter we have worked on in the past.
