Why is the Australian Resume different?
All job markets around the world are unique in their own ways. The culture of a certain country plays a large part in how the job process works. In Australia, for example, it is neither necessary nor required to put a picture on your resume. Providing additional personal information such as date of birth, marital status, religion etc. is also very much discouraged. In order to write a good “Australian”, resume you need to have an understanding of what the Australian employer is looking for in a resume.
Highlight Achievements in your Australian resume.
Recent reports have indicated that recruitment agents and hiring managers will only spend up to 15 seconds reading your resume before deciding to either read on or delete. Once the resume has been deleted there is no way for the reader to give the resume a second chance. The number one rule with your resume is to highlight your achievements. When you apply for a certain job you can expect that a large percentage of the candidates will share relatively the same skills and education as you. In order to stand out above the competition you need to highlight your achievements and show the reader where you can specifically add value to their business.
Top 5 tips to ensure your new Australian resume is targeted toward the Australian Job Market:
- Achievements are essential – Use examples to
back up statements
- Target your resume – Each time you apply for
a job, ensure that your resume and cover letter is targeting that specific job.
- Use correct “British English” – Words such as
“realize” are spelt with a “z” using American English, but in Australia the “z”
is replaced with an “s” – “Realise”
- No picture or unnecessary personal
- Use strategic keywords (Strategic selection
of keywords and phrases designed to highlight your resume and cover letter)
