Congratulations! You’re graduating and want a resume writer

For many tertiary students and that includes TAFE SA, working with a resume writer will be their first taste of non-negotiable deadlines and meeting the professional expectations of others.

If the resume writer is any good (that’s a subject in itself), he or she will be very busy but most will do what they can to help graduating students.

Here’s a couple of hints for students to make it easier:

Always send your latest resume, even if it’s a few years old, with the first contact.

Have a clear idea of the job you want to apply for.

If the job has been advertised, send the job link.

Give the resume writer at least a week to meet the position deadline.

Meet the reply deadlines set by the resume writer.

Apply for one job at a time.

A couple of things not to do:

Fail to send your old or current resume when you said you would.

Be vague or unclear about the job you want to apply for. Do research.
