Following significant growth in Australia, New Zealand and the US, our Singapore company – Successful Resumes Singapore Pte Ltd was established and incorporated in 2011 by Larry Lim with the intent of bringing high quality, professional resume standards to this vibrant and globalised city.

We make it easy for them by writing dynamic documents that meet the needs of their tracking and screening systems, are keyword rich and grab their attention in a mere six seconds.
