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.
