Gen Z - Kickstart Your Future
"To my editor, Tracey Allen, I certainly would never have got this book out there if we had not met!

Thank you for your input and for letting me know that double spaces after a full stop are for the era when type writers were about! Being an old fart it wasn't easy but you will be pleased to know I have now trained myself to only use one space! Thank you Tracey Allen, my editor and mentor!"

College Blues"Having recently completed my first attempt at long form story writing, I was at a bit of a loss as to what to do next. Luckily, I found Tracey, who was able to help me with editing and lots of valuable advice about direction, character development and potential avenues to market. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Tracey and would happily recommend that anyone looking to start or finish get in touch with her to help out. Thanks again Tracey."

"Tracey was a real professional when it came to putting my Resume together, she knew exactly how to structure it, what information was required and how to get this across in the most successful way. It's been at least 10 years since I put a Resume together and Tracey gave me all the help and support in preparing a new one. No question or query was an issue for her and she had complete honesty with me at all times, answering any questions I had in a professional and easy to understand way. I really felt at ease with Tracey, even when it came to asking what I sometimes thought might be silly questions. No question was silly to Tracey and she would give a thorough explanation in response to whatever I asked her. I would highly recommend Tracey's work to anyone that needs to refresh their Resume or advice on anything job related as she really has helped me gain confidence in my future applications with her great work. Thank you Tracey, you are great!"

"On first contact with Extra edge I was impressed with the fast, positive and comprehensive response I received from Tracey Allen. I sent an old resume and as much of my work history information as I could find to Extra Edge on a Saturday afternoon. Within two hours Tracey had responded with a critique, a quote and a plan of action. By Sunday terms were agreed to and by Monday I had the first draft of my new resume in front of me. To say I was impressed by the speed and quality of the service provided by Tracey would be an understatement. I can highly recommend using Extra Edge.
- Michael, VIC (2016)

"Extra Edge gave me just that! I really appreciated the time, skill and professionalism which Tracey extended to me in polishing my Resume, KSC and her coaching for the interview was invaluable. All of Tracey's efforts paid off as I got the job! I was told I was the best interviewee and HR said: "thank you for making it so easy to pick you." Thanks again Tracey."

"I must say you are amazing, you have done an incredible job. I will always recommend you to everyone, thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
- Lyn & Rob, Melbourne VIC (2014)

"I contacted Tracey to edit and re-design my resume. She responded within a couple of hours, providing a quote and some constructive feedback I could use whether I accepted her services or not. Once I accepted her quote, she started work straight away, working over the weekend to provide a first draft within a day. Tracey worked with me to produce a resume that reflected my style. Throughout the process she responded to my queries and questions thoughtfully and efficiently and she provided me with useful and constructive feedback. I am very pleased with the final resume and generic cover letter Tracey provided. I would definitely recommend her services."

"My name is Robert Mwangi and I was born under the hills of Mt. Kenya. I'm the author of the book A Whisper in the Jungle edited by Tracey Allen. I'm not a firm believer in serendipity, but I sent my editing request to Tracey at the exact time when she was flying to Kenya for a vacation and needless to say, the timing was perfect for both of us.

Within two days of receiving my submission, Tracey identified almost a change in every page of the almost two hundred page novel. Some of her suggestions ranged from simple things like a comma placement to sentence restructure; her diligence and eye to detail impressed me. What I really liked most about Tracey as an editor was her humane touch to the whole process as opposed to usual rigid editors that we encounter. Tracey lured me into the process and I saw my book from an entirely different perspective. I would recommend her to all who are interested in having their books edited in a professional manner."
Thank you,
- Robert Mwangi, Author, USA (2013)

"I would like to send my special thanks to Tracey for her outstanding work on polishing my resume and generic cover letter recently. Dedication, efficiency, accuracy and professionalism are what I received while engaging Tracey for her professional services. She started the work straight away after I accepted her services offer and completed her work relatively quickly after just 3 working days. She provided me a large number of advice and professional insights on my job application along the way too. I would recommend Tracey to anyone for her professional resume writing services. Once again, many thanks, Tracey. Great work!!"
- Michael, Melbourne VIC (2013)

"I employed Tracey from Extra Edge to proofread and edit several selection criteria documents and cover letters for multiple job applications and she did so with the utmost professionalism. Tracey answered all of my questions, often going out of her way to provide additional information and explanations to aid in my understanding of the recruitment industry. After submitting all of my applications, I was thrilled to receive three postdoctoral job offers; one in Australia and two overseas! I am very grateful for Tracey's assistance and am happy to recommend her services widely."

"I engaged Extra Edge to assist me in relation to a new resume as, after being with the same employer for over 24 years, I had moved interstate and was looking for work.

"Tracey has been proofreading and editing my uni assignments for a while, so when it came time to writing an application for an overseas University scholarship, I knew just who to turn to. Tracey took my application from an 8/10 to a 10/10 and it was a nervous wait but when I received the news I had been accepted I was thrilled beyond belief. I'm thankful for her help and can't wait to embark on this new chapter in my life."
- Silvia, VIC (2012)

Tracey was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her services."

She did all the work efficiently and was very punctual and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for career guidance."
