Your profile photo might send the wrong message. Unless a job ad requests the inclusion of a recent photograph, don’t add one to your resume. A profile photo does nothing to demonstrate your skills and proficiencies – and a photo that’s too casual or unprofessional can see your application moved to the “unsuccessful” tab without another look.
Yes we do – it helps us narrow down who we’d like to employ, especially if we are torn between two candidates. Facebook gives us an idea of what you do outside of work, Twitter show us who you follow and LinkedIn allows us to see your professional connections and if you're a blogger we'll have a read of what you topics you publish.
Absolutely, sometimes we’ll read your resume 3 or 4 times before calling to conduct a phone screen.
Good question, have you checked your email address is correct? Do you have an active voicemail account so we can leave you a message? If your voicemail is unprofessional, we'll hangup and move to the next candidate.
A cover letter helps you explain who you are, why you’re applying, what you can bring to the role. It also fills in a few gaps that aren't explained in your resume. Some people have a generic cover letter others make theirs specific for the role. Cover letters assist your application as it shows you’ve taken the time to read the job description and not just attached your resume and clicked send.
It’s pretty obvious that reference checking allows potential employers to obtain independent information about you and your previous job performance. The information we gather is directly related to the key selection criteria of the role and allows the recruiter to validate information provided by you at the interview. Referencing also allows us to identify ‘grey areas’ from your resume or from the interview such as the reasons you left a past position.
Many employers find a police check beneficial to reduce the risk of theft, fraud or other criminal activity previously performed by a potential employee. In industries where employees are working with children, the elderly or other vulnerable communities, police checks & working with children checks are vital for an organisation to rule out employing people who are past offenders.
