Meet Our Founder

Our Founder, Salam Akhnoukh, is a passionate and highly sought-after writer with over 9 years of professional writing experience and 14 years of experience working within the corporate world, notably in engineering, retail, service and education.

She is Australia’s FIRST and ONLY Nationally Certified Resume Writer (NCRW).

Having consulted for countless leading Australian generalist and specialist career practices over the years, Salam has become well-regarded in Sydney as an expert resume writer.

In 2015, She created Elevate. Why?

Because she wanted to support job seekers in identifying and wielding their unique value to control their career path and quality of life.

From a very young age, Salam experienced, first-hand, the powerful impact of our jobs and careers on mental health, emotional state, and overall quality of life. Through 9 years of career writing experience and dedication to supporting job seekers (and having been a job seeker herself) she devised the tools needed to gain control of our path, and applied and practiced these methodologies in her own life.

As a talented and specialised wordsmith coming from a unique background in biomedical engineering, service, and education, Salam has created an innovative job search methodology, combining her technical and systematic mindset, with person-centred service and the expert use of language to tell every story with impact.
