DOs:

  • Bullet Point 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, use a maximum of 2 pages).
  • Customize – 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.”

  • Unrelated info - Do not include courses unrelated to the job (e.g. Advanced Computer skills in a Cleaner resume)
  • Too much info - Do not list too many duties you have performed in previous experience. Only list those relevant for the role you are applying for.
  • Redundancy - Don’t list repeated duties for different work experience
  • Picture - Avoid attaching your picture unless required by the job ad.
