Getting your resume right!

Every country has a slightly different expectation of what should be on a CV or resume and how it should be presented. Australia is no exception.

When was the last time you looked at your resume or CV? Is it up to date with your responsibilities and achievements? Maybe now is the time to seek help. It can’t be overstated the value a professional writer can add to your ability to find the job you are after, and further, to achieve your much sought after goals. Also, does your resume match the information you have on the professional networking websites?  Employers are increasingly using these websites to search for potential candidates. A professional writer is able to assist you with all the above and potentially more.

Employers in all industries have more ability now to be selective when choosing the successful candidate. When applying for vacant positions it is important to stand out from the crowd and give the employer a reason to conduct an interview with you to gain answers to questions they have as a result of reading your Resume, it indicates you have grabbed their interest. In today’s incredibly competitive job market, your Resume is your most important advocate. A tired, one-size-fits-all resume is simply not enough to attract and retain employers’ attention. First impressions can only be made once..


Tip 1

Your resume needs to reflect who you are and what you are capable of. Review your resume focusing on these 2 points. 

Tip 2

Make sure your resume is not too long and uninteresting. Getting the right match between quality of content and length of your professional document can be a delicate balance. .

Tip 3

Putting personal information in your resume is not highly regarded in Australia. We have strict anti-discrimination laws and recruiters are not interested in your age (unless they are recruiting a junior) whether you are single or married, or what your interests are outside work. Focus only on the information that relates to your employment history and tailor it to suit the job if you need to.

Tip 4

If you are not currently in the same location as the job you are applying for, make sure you attach a cover letter and mention your intention to relocate. If you are coming from overseas, ensure you add the type of visa you have, when it starts and your intended date of arrival. This will ensure recruiters don’t just disregard your resume as someone from overseas looking to be sponsored.

Tip 5

Have a few different people double check your resume for mistakes. Often when you are looking at your own resume over and over again, you can miss simple mistakes. It is also quite common when the candidate does not have English as a first language. Having friends/family double check the document ensures it will be 100% correct.
