Features & Benefits
Australia’s No.1 ADF resume writer
Next Job Now is the No.1 resume writer for ADF members in Australia. We write resumes for all services, all ranks and all occupations. Importantly, we know that a resume is not a historical recounting of your career or a list of achievements. It’s a very subtle sales document that has to put your skills in the best possible light.
We won’t make you fill in any time-wasting forms like our competitors
We are the only company that does a resume interview to get the information we need to write your resume. Our competitors just send you a form to fill in yourself…which is a bit like paying someone else and then doing their job for them.
NJN won’t make you look like a trained killer
Its all too easy to look like a trained killer. A resume should solely address themes of commercial interest to an employer and highlight how you will make them money, save money or make something faster, safer, cheaper, more efficient, etc. We’ll make sure there are no deadly killer words in your resume like command, mission, frigate, subordinate and many others!
An attractive and effective resume layout with keywords highlighted
NJN uses an attractive and effective resume layout that is optimised for scanning into recruiter databases, highlights keywords to get employer attention and uniquely showcases key skills up front so that every employer can see something of use to them in your background.
NJN is the ONLY company that does a resume interview…NO FORM FILLING
As we said before, NJN is the ONLY company that does a resume interview to get the information needed to write your resume. Have you ever asked yourself why our competitors send you a form to fill in? I’m not sure you’re going to like the answer! Like us, most competitors use ex-military people to sell you their services, BUT that’s where the similarities end. Check this out:
NJN We talk to you to get info for your resume because we understand the military and this will be obvious when you deal with us.
OTHERS Outsource their resume writing to civilians who have never been in the military and try to hide it by sending a form for you to fill in so you can’t talk to the person who will be writing your resume.
Form-filling is killing your job hunting chances
When you fill in a form with a competitor to provide information for your resume, you are missing a LOT of information that a resume expert doing a proper interview to research your background would include. After all, you are only thinking about your background from a military perspective. Now let’s be clear on this...if you don’t put something in the form then it won’t end up in the resume a competitor writes for you. Are you really happy with that outcome given that you are paying for expert advice to explore and translate your background.
NJN conducts 1:1 resume interviews and doesn’t cut corners
Unlike our competitors, we do all of our resume writing in-house. Nothing gets outsourced to civilians. We’ll do a 1:1 interview and go through all your PMKeyS information plus any annual reports, old resumes and supporting documentation. You won’t find any other company in Australia that is as thorough as NJN.
We are always happy to make changes to suits your needs
Our work is so good that most clients rarely change a word. Don’t worry though, we provide plenty of opportunity for you to review the draft resume and will willingly make any changes for you. Once you provide us with feedback we’ll thoroughly proof the resume several times before we issue the final version.
Our expert team will translate your military skills to civvy speak
You do so much in Defence, but few resume writers know how to translate your military skills in a way that makes employers want to hire you over hundreds of other applicants. It’s all we do and we are the best at it. Next Job Now is the No.1 resume writer for ADF folks in Australia. Just check out the resume samples on the Resources page of our website and you’ll see why. We translate your rank, unit details, job duties, achievements, military courses, deployments and other information to make sure you are presented as a highly employable team member.
Don’t panic if you ever lose your resume
Money-hungry competitors often password protect your resume and charge up to several hundred dollars to reissue your resume if you ever lose it. Not us. NJN never password protects any documents and we reissue your resume completely free of charge should you ever need it.
Top quality at a massively discounted price
Hopefully you’ve shopped around before you came to our website. If so, you’ll realise that a good resume from a quality provider can easily cost up to $800 or more. So, you’ll be very pleased to know that our resume pricing starts from $248. Pricing of each individual resume does depend on rank, career length and complexity of roles held. As a guide, most people can expect to pay $299, which is cheaper than our competitors for a better quality product from the No.1 expert in ADF resumes.

Our customers are our best advertisement
Over the years I’ve learned that competitors will say, and do, just about anything to win business. Sadly some clients can be too trusting, fall victim to slick sales pitches and end up wasting their money only to come back to us later to help fix the damage when their “form-filling” resume doesn’t work. The best judge of a company’s success is their customers. Learn what our clients say about NJN in their testimonials below. We didn’t get to be No.1 by conning people. We got there by delivering consistently outstanding work, treating people with respect and doing such a good job that people take pleasure in telling all their friends about us. Our customers truly are our best advertisement.
