After googling and researching different companies, I contacted Malcolm to re-write my very old and outdated resume.... Malcolm was quick to respond, gave me an upfront quote and got straight to work. Malcolm worked with me to come up with a professionally written resume that really highlighted my skills and experiences and a cover letter that specifically targeted the job I wanted to apply for. Malcolm has been friendly, professional and efficient. I highly recommend Malcolm from Resume Republic.read more

Adelaide a poor house for new migrants

Adelaide a poor house for new migrants

As an Adelaide resume writer, I’ve had a gutful of the South Australian government perpetuating a scam on migrants. They come to me looking for help but by then, they are in dire straights. Far from being the land of new opportunities touted by the SA government, new...

Chaos in job market can be good for job seekers

Chaos in job market can be good for job seekers

April was very quiet for Republic Resumes but May has been full-on with clients. I had to close the business a couple of times for a few days to catch up! It sounds funny (or contraindicated) but turmoil in the job market is the perfect time for job seekers and job...

Getting in to the Australian Public Service

It's a little known fact that when the Government of the day looks like a chook with it's head cut off, the Australian Public Service (APS) run the nation. They have more experience and expertise and in many cases, do a better job. I’ve spend a lot of time in...

Kicking goals as a resume writer

One of the coolest things about helping people target new jobs, is dealing with the sheer variety of occupations. As a resume writer, I need to know most of them. In the last two weeks alone, I have worked with a process engineer from Nyrstar in Port Pirie, a yoga...

Rents for jobseekers on the way down

Plenty of our recent resume and business clients are on JobKeeper. Some are getting financial relief through rent pauses. This is a good news story for them - but not landlords. Tenants are in a better position to demand lower rents than they have been for years as...

Some background on me

OTR class action for alleged wage theft in Adelaide

April unemployment figures shocker. Real figures are worse

Don't shoot the messenger but the real unemployment figure is worse. I not only write resumes and help get people jobs. I analyse LGA unemployment figures as I know the ABS methodology. In real terms, total unemployment is closer to 2 million. A record 600,000...

Unemployed for a year? 44 percent chance of working again

It’s tough writing resumes for long term unemployed people. I emphasise potential and motivation. The longer one is unemployed the harder it is to get a job – but not impossible. This is a statistics story, which means its not 'the truth' for everyone. This story is...

Newly unemployed harassed by job agencies

Newly unemployed harassed by job agencies

As a resume writer and employment expert, the main blockers to client employment in Australia, are private recruiters and job agencies. I treat both with contempt. They should be investigated by a Royal Commission. The story below is from The New Daily (8 May 2020)....
