Recommended Posts

Hey there after having no work in Perth i came to The Uk .My family are still in Perth and im trying to get back there, so as to get my kids through school, 3 years left. Does anyone know if a proffessional resume is beneficial or a waste of time.The Aussis love the word "'Qualified'" let me know your thoughts. Im in construction and aquired my builders diploma, and other stuff, first aid, asbestos, work at heights .If anyone knows a good resume writer please advise. I fancy a career change too so anyone with an opening , drop me a line.PLEASE stick to topic.

HI jgt

 From my perspective, the job market is quite dire in Perth. I have also been considering letting a professional polish up my CV as I have had almost zero response to the numerous job applications I've made.  In the UK I almost always had an interview after submitting my CV and even turned down  a number of job offers. Over here, I seldom even receive an acknowledgement of my application, and when I do its a rejection. 

I've heard good things about this lady http://www.resumesetc.com.au/.  I am very seriously contemplating forking out the money to have my CV given a professional polish as I am obviously doing something wrong!!
