I have noticed on Etsy, and some other sites, they sell formats that are pretty to look at, but I sometimes find that it can be hard to extract the right information from them, she says. It is a delicate balance between finding something that you think looks good, but that represents the right information. I definitely err on the side of fewer bells and whistles and really having the experience stand out. While many of these template sites include guidance on the content, not just the design, Konstant suggests seeking guidance offline. Ask people who actually do the kind of work that you want to do to take a look at (your resume) and see what is missing, she says. (That way) you can make sure that your resume really speaks to the kind of jobs that you are looking for. Before you run off and find your mentor, you can at least start by using the following template sites. One note: Beware of many sites offering free or low-cost templates. Some of them will automatically subscribe you to their services after 14 days, and charge you fees as high as $25 a month. If there is no pricing info available on a site, that should be a red flag.
The resume: there are so many conflicting recommendations out there. Should you keep it to one page? Do you put a summary up top? Do you include personal interests and volunteer gigs? This may be your best chance to make a good first impression, so you’ve got to get it right. There is nothing quick or easy about crafting an effective resume, says Jane Heifetz, a resume expert and founder of Right Resumes. Do not think you are going to sit down and hammer it out in an hour. You have to think carefully about what to say and how to say it so the hiring manager thinks, this person can do what I need done, she says. After all, it is more than a resume : it is a marketing document, says John Lees, a UK-based career strategist and author of Knockout CV. Heifetz agrees: The hiring manager is the buyer, you are the product, and you need to give him a reason to buy. Here is how to write a resume that will be sure to win attention.
One of the biggest challenges for Australian job seekers is that much of what can be found on the internet (and in books) is written for markets other than the Australian job market (although I am working hard to change that!). Many people think that a one-page resume is the norm in Australia, but that is a bit of a myth. I always say that a resume only needs to be as long as it needs to be, to get the message across that the job seeker is the best candidate for the job. Sure, a school-leaver may have a one-page resume, however, we find most Australian resumes tend to be 2 – 3 pages, which also means that our resumes tend to have a lot more words in them. (Big thanks to Jobscan for making Australian job seekers aware of this on the Jobscan ATS tool). Other market-specific idiosyncrasies include spelling (we use British English as standard), grammar, the meanings of certain words, measurements etc – and things such as paper size. Australians are not great at shouting about their achievements, and many have very bland I did this, I did that statements on their resumes. In our experience, people (recruiters and employers) buy people (job seekers), so what we do is really turn our clients resumes around to focus on authentic, personality-driven documents that shout out just how amazing our clients are by providing tangible evidence of the outcomes of the work they have done. It is a winning formula.
