Current businessman 27 years old, from Sydney, said he tried several side gigs over the years to make more money.

These activities included selling shirts, teaching dance and providing marketing services to small businesses but all “failed quite horribly”, he told news.com.au.

But then last March, he stumbled across a business making money during Australia’s national Covid lockdown, when he had time on his hands.

Andrew suggests writing resumes for job seekers, through Fiverr, a global freelance services marketplace.

For the first month nothing happened so he continued his work as a legal officer but “then it started to blow up” and quickly filled in with requests.

“It was a wild period, sometimes I couldn’t sleep for two or three days,” he said.

“When I saw the potential, I really had to sacrifice a lot of things, I was working full time, trying to balance everything.”

As a result, the customer was happy, the Fiverr algorithm prioritized him so before long, more orders were pouring in and he found himself “overburdened” with the amount of work.

He said his initial “crazy” plan was to “keep taking orders by myself until I couldn’t handle it” so when that time came, he enlisted help. help from friends.

“I told them to come to me, tell them to write a resume,” he said.

Currently, he has 15 people working under him, with knowledge in various fields, including accounting, medicine and law.

Of the £300,000 he earns, he takes home half, pays taxes and pays his staff the rest.

His team has written 3000 resumes for clients across 85 countries, and their client base mainly consists of US citizens, followed by Australians.

Among their successes, I helped the chief technology officer of a leading American company.

He insists that you don’t have to be an expert in the jobseeker’s industry to help them.

“I find that everyone’s work history is still work history, whether you’re in technology or law or sales,” he says.
