Coronavirus creating new jobs as companies re-purpose – ABC

While hundreds of thousands of jobs are being lost across Australia, some are being created as the economy re-purposes due to the coronavirus. As a resume writer this is good news because it means some people targeting supply chains, will find work. This story is from...

Too tired to help herself – blackballed

Too tired to help herself – blackballed

Every now and then I gain a small insight in to the human condition. It's not always edifying. We had a client recently who asked us to rewrite her resume. She was a contractor in the public service. We sent her the terms and conditions, emphasised the 24-hour...

The art of the cover letter

The art of the cover letter

I enjoy writing targeted cover letters in partnership with clients. We have a lot of success with them. Every paragraph is a ‘punchy’ selling point, which goes to the heart of the job application. The best cover letters target an application. Generic cover letters...

Stood down? Get a second job while you can

As the economy teeters on a recession, people will be worried about their jobs and that’s only right. Republic Resumes is now focusing solely on writing resumes and writing cover letters, as these are the main products to get short-listed for jobs. It’s important to...

BHP hiring

BHP hiring

Even amongst a sea of bleak news, there is one ray of sunshine at BHP. Get your resumes and cover letters out and strike now. These won’t last long. BHP said it would hire 1500 workers to support its workforce operating across Australia in iron ore, coal and copper...

Young people to be poorer than their parents

Young people to be poorer than their parents

I wrote this story for News Corporation on generational inequality. As a resume writer, I get to work with lots of people and this story came from the stories my younger clients told me. It's one of the most serious issues facing Australian society. One generation...

Should you take a job you don’t want?

Should you take a job you don’t want?

I've had a number of jobs that I should never have taken. But in retrospect, they often led to more interesting positions. Should we take a job that sucks? Resume writers understand that people have to put bread on the table but that doesn't mean you have to stay in a...

Killer LinkedIn summaries

Killer LinkedIn summaries

This story appeared in Forbes Magazine in 2018 but it’s still good. It’s a succinct piece on the importance of the LinkedIn summary. Something I focus on a lot. The summary tells a story in strong verbs, of achievement and results. It packs a punch. “Over the past...

Graduates clear tables and ask: “was my degree worth it?’

Competition for graduate jobs in South Australia is fierce. I work as a resume writer and employment specialist. My clients ask, ‘when will our universities start to focus on quality over quantity?’ I wrote this story for Adelaide’s media. No-one would have believed...

Using a resume writer to get you a job

Using a resume writer to get you a job

I started out writing resumes for university and TAFE students back in the 1990s. I was a senior lecturer in writing at RMIT and the students needed help with the ‘sales proposition’. They’d ask, ‘what are my key skills and capabilities and how do I sell them?’ We’d...

Avoid the retirement void and follow your passions

Avoid the retirement void and follow your passions

Retirement isn’t all it’s cracked up to be for some. When I started Republic Resumes in Adelaide, about 15 per cent of my clients were retirees wanting to work part time or casually. I focused on their interests and targeted their resumes to new careers. This story is...

Dodgy unemployment figures

Dodgy unemployment figures

The ABS unemployment figures don't reflect that true state of unemployment and under employment in Australia. Much of the problem lies in quantifying a qualitative phenomenon. The methodology they use defines the issue away. It’s old fashioned and can’t measure those...

Do more and get referees right

Do more and get referees right

When you’re looking for a job or a promotion, get your best referees lined up first. When I write client resumes and CV’s, I advise them to use professionals who know their work. Not a mate, a relative or someone they worked with ten years ago. Ask the referee's...

Jobs you don’t need a degree for

As a resume writer, I see heaps of kids with worthless degrees. Universities are flogging degree programs for all they are worth. Below are some of the median salaries for jobs you don't need a degree for. Are they REALLY worth the HECS debt? $143,471 Median annual...

I'm taking a small break for a couple of weeks. I will be back on deck on Monday, 16 March, 2020. I still keep my hand in as a journalist and I'm having a working holiday in Sri Lanka. I'm writing a story on ocean plastics for the Asian media. The amount of plastics...

The unforgiven: breaking deadlines is career arsenic

The unforgiven: breaking deadlines is career arsenic

The cardinal sin when hiring a professional resume writer, is to fail to provide them with information when they need it. We've had two in the last week. This seems to be an Adelaide phenomena and I don't know why. It could be that the Adelaide Fringe and Festival of...

Resumes with no achievements, results or wins

Resumes with no achievements, results or wins

Every now and then we get a client who not only has no results on a resume but can't remember what they have achieved in a job. This is much like a professional footballer playing a game and not remembering how many kicks he or she had or how many goals kicked. I'm...

Professionalism leads to great resume testimonial

People ask me, why do you like helping people get jobs. The testimonial below from Matt, a former client in Adelaide, answers that question. “Good Morning Malcolm, I just wanted to contact you to let you know how useful your help has been over the last few months. As...

Need new methodology to count unemployed and casual workers

The official Australian Bureaus of Statistics (ABS) figures aren’t telling a complete or accurate picture of unemployment and underemployment in Australia. This is a story I wrote last year for the media in Adelaide. This story examines how tight definitions of...
