You may not be aware, but most resume and selection criteria writers operating in Australia have overseas origins.  Therefore, their templates and content styles are vastly different from the Australian job market – and, of course, that is also the reason for excessively priced services.

Interview Questions

job interview QUESTIONS

‘Do you have any questions?’ is generally asked at the conclusion of every job interview.  Why? Well, first of all, it’s where the interview panel identify (if they haven’t already done so) how interested you are in the position and how much you know about their organisation.   If you don’t have any pre-prepared questions – or ask the wrong questions – it’s probably going to cost you the job. …. read more

Job rejection

JOB interview REJECTION?

If you are scratching your head wondering why you didn’t achieve an interview for a position which was a perfect match for you, i.e. you had the experience and skill-set to do the job ‘standing on your head’ – it’s probably because of the resume you submitted.  Generally there are 13 primary reasons that resumes get rejected and some of them may surprise you read more

Will your current resume achieve interviews?

is it ATS compatible?

Most organisations (Government and non-Government), use Applicant Tracking Systems, better known as black holes where resumes and applications go to die. The hard truth is that when you apply for advertised openings, it’s unlikely that your credentials will ever be considered by a human being – much less result in an interview, unless your resume is totally ATS compliant (structure and content) and importantly, incorporates they keywords and key-phrases associated with the positions you are targeting.  We check your document’s ATS compability.

Does it promote your value proposition to hiring organisations?

we not only check ATS compliance, but also your document’s potential to achieve interviews and job offers for you based on the content.  Your current resume may well be ATS compliant and passed on for human intervention, however, in this highly competitive job market, the content itself may not effectively promote your value proposition to hiring organisations.
