Some good tips
Here you will find the DO’s and DONT’s to successfully build your resume and increase your chances to get a job interview.
- Bulleted items - Ideally make your resume listing items. The more reader-friendly the better.
- One page fits all - Fit your resume in one single page (if needed maximum 2 pages).
- Customise – Tailor your application for each job opportunity.
- Grammar mistakes - Use the spell check feature to look for any grammar mistakes and remember to set to “English – Australia”.
- Appearance is everything - Make a resume design that doesn’t look like everyone else’s. Presenting information in neat and organised layout makes the difference.
- Personal info - Never inform your passport details, nationality, visa, date of birth, gender, religion, hobbies or marital status.
- Unrelated info - Do not inform courses unrelated to the job (eg. Advanced Computer skills in Cleaner resume)
- Too much info – Do not list too many duties you have performed in previous experiences. Only list those relevant for the role you are applying for.
- Redundancy - Don’t list repeated duties for different work experiences.
Picture - Avoid attaching your picture unless required by the job ad.
