Is your resume competitive?
A strong resume can be your ticket to interviews and new opportunities.
A weak resume can stop you from getting ahead.
As a jobseeker, you need to ask yourself: is my resume holding me back?
Your resume needs to be relevant and readable.
It should position you very clearly for the positions you're applying for, and emphasise your most relevant experience and qualifications.
It should be structured to market convention, correctly formatted and free of error.
Your resume should be very well presented, with a look and feel that is appropriate to your field.
You might think that you have so much experience for a role that your presentation doesn't matter.
This is rarely true - your visual representation has a big impact as it gives your readers a sense of who you are as a person and what you'd be like to work with.
Think of your resume as your representative in paper.
Ask yourself: would you want to invite yourself to interview?
It's a great idea to have someone look over your resume. A friend or colleague is good, someone with HR/recruitment experience is even better.
Or you can take advantage of our resume health check service, free of charge.
