Hints and tips

Preparing your resume

Your resume is your own personal proposal designed to market you to potential employers. What you write, how you write it, and the presentation and preparation you put into it is a reflection of who you are and how you work. First impressions don't start at the interview, but rather at the point your resume is opened and read.

What impression do you want to portray?

Start with the right information. If you are sending out multiple cover letters and resumes then be sure to change the information to reflect the role you are applying for. Make sure you update your covering letter so that it is addressed to the right person for the right role. The covering letter should be no more than 4 paragraphs and should be a brief snap shot about yourself and briefly explain your interest in the position you are applying for. Your resume should of course provide your personal contact details (you will be surprised how many don‘t!). It is worth thinking about your email address – is it appropriate for you to use when applying for jobs. For example, does your potential employer want to know your hotmail address is babylovestodrink@hotmail.com ?

Keep your resume reasonably short but not so short that we don‘t know what you‘ve been doing. Bullet points are great because they are easy to read and can clearly highlight your tasks and responsibilities. Start with the most recent or current role and work backwards. Include dates and reasons for leaving. If you have gaps in your employment history (raising family, travel, study) then include this information – don‘t leave the reader guessing. Other important pieces of information include education, relevant courses and specific computer skills.

If you choose to include references (rather than stating they are “available on request”) then make sure they are up to date with correct contact details. It is also important (and courteous) to ensure that you have asked your referees for permission to include them. Ideally your referees should be those that you have directly reported to. Finally, before hitting “send” be thorough when proof reading and preferably get somebody else to also read through it. Don‘t just rely on spell check.

Preparing for your interview

So your superbly written covering letter and resume has helped you secure a job interview – great news!!! Now it‘s time to get prepared.

If you are meeting with an agency first then you need to treat this as a “proper” interview.

Lots of candidates walk through the door of an agency expecting just a meet and greet in order to get an interview with the client. We need to be wowed too.

Here are the top five golden rules to help you along the way

Dress;

Dress to impress. Fancy designer labels aren't necessary but good grooming is. Think professional and polished.

Arrival;

Show off your time management skills and arrive on time – not too early and not too late. 5 -10 minutes prior to the interview time is perfect.

Preparation;

Research the company and go in to the interview with a level of understanding that shows you've done your homework

Approach;

Try to relax and keep the nerves at bay. Be professional, polite, warm and personable. Smile.

Practice makes perfect;

This goes hand in hand with preparation. Have a clear idea of how you may answer questions about your previous experience and how it may relate to the role you are applying for. Some employers still ask the “strengths and weaknesses” questions – be prepared so you don‘t end up saying that you don‘t have any weaknesses only chocolate (true story!)

And lastly;

At the conclusion of the interview thank the interviewer for their time, and if it hasn't already been covered you can ask what you can expect the next step to be.
