Excellent Support

"Celeste was amazing!!! Not only offering professional advice regarding update of Resume and interview techniques but also achieving a very personal touch. Her approach made me feel at ease and no question was left unanswered. I recommend this service to anyone who has been affected with Job loss during this unusual time of COVID19"

Excellent Perspective

"Kate really helped me to look at my resume through the eyes of a prospective employer, and gave me excellent tips and ideas on how to re-frame my resume to be more specific to the role for which I am applying. She also made me feel more relaxed and confident around some of my concerns regarding re-employment. I highly recommend - and thank - Kate, and Project Displaced."

Title of the article

When you apply for a job the first thing a hiring manager will ask of you is to submit a resume, also known as a CV, and usually a cover letter. These are critical documents that enable you to showcase your skills, experience and professional profile onto paper to help support your case for securing an interview. Without them, your application may be rejected without reason or simply left unanswered.

As an authority on hiring skilled workers for a vast number of specialist areas in Australia, Hays understands what it takes to get a CV through to the hiring manager’s ‘yes’ pile. Our recruitment experts possess an abundance of knowledge on resume writing and tips for candidates of all backgrounds and needs, from permanent roles to contract assignments, or even finding a job within the government or public sector.

 

A cover letter is not always requested when applying for jobs, but it is useful for positioning yourself as a more favourable candidate. Think of this document as supporting information to offer a more tailored explanation as to why you want to work for the chosen employer. Including your notice period and working rights can potentially eliminate concerns or indecision about your suitability for the role.
