Career objective, make it sing and dance to the right tune

The career objective can be a tricky statement to compose and is often open to many interpretations, often wrong ones. Sometimes these paragraphs are just “motherhood” statements, totally broad and boring. They don’t tell the reader anything specific about you – in face it could read like thousands of other profiles. Don’t use career statements unless you write a good one. Instead insert an “about me” statement. One that sells you to the employer.

The perils of moving to a Regional area

Looking for work in a regional area? Can’t find what you are looking for? Resume not yielding  an interview? Are you struggling to get to an interview? Frustrated by the lack of jobs? The Hastings Region is a highly sought-after place to live and as with most regional towns, finding the job you want, let alone a job, is often tricky. It requires some creative thinking, not just on how to apply, but also the type of work that might suit your skills set. It pays to continue your research on job web sites well in advance to the move. It’s important to gain a feel for what types of jobs are in demand. It also helps you re-consider the variety of jobs that you may be prepared to perform. An integral part of the research needs to encompass the big employers in this area and the main source of wealth for the region. You probably are already aware that Health; Education, Retail; Building and construction are some of the main employment areas. Now is the best time to reinvigorate your RESUME. Really review it! Does it still reflect your old life? the one where jobs were easier to get? Is your current resume one that is irrelevant for this new regional experience?  Study it and study it hard as this is THE main way to gain an interview. You will want a resume that opens doors, not one that closes opportunities! There are a few private recruitment firms, however their duty is to source the best employee for their clients, therefore candidates will need to match the skills/ experience and knowledge required in the job advertisement. Some residents do travel extensively for work, some commute weekly or even daily  to Newcastle/ Kempsey/ Taree and some even as far as Sydney. If you are able to set up a home office, there may be opportunities to work remotely. It’s flexibility and adaptability that will make or break the transition to a regional community. Most of all, stay positive and expect great outcomes! Ivana Agapiou Resume writer and Career advisor...

RESUMES are underrated – start rating it!

Every day we receive job applications that include an attached resume. Most of the time the resume as presented, does not reflect the advertised position. In fact, we often comment that we have no idea why the applicant is interested in the position as they don’t appear to have any work experiences, skills or abilities that match the job. The resume MUST help the reader and potential employer understand why you would be the best person for this job. How do you do this? Here are some major tips!
