Malcolm is a very professional resume expert. He responds to emails promptly and always finish everything on time.... Malcolm also gives me a lot of honest advices and support. He also asked a lot of mind-intrigued questions that give me a clearer view about my career path. Last but not least, he had been able to help me shorten my four-page resume to a career-focused with two pages only along with a wonderful cover letter.read more

After googling and researching different companies, I contacted Malcolm to re-write my very old and outdated resume....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

Should I include my address and referee details?

A classic piece of fence sitting here – it depends.

In general terms yes, but if you are a woman you might have some reservations.

You wouldn’t give your home address out to just anyone, would you? That’s a privacy issue.

It’s ameliorated somewhat by the fact that 80 per cent of people who scan and short-list candidates are young women themselves.

But that might not satisfy everyone.

The other side of the coin is where a job is being advertised in Adelaide or Wollongong and they only really want people in those locations to apply.

They might not state that in the ad but it’s implicit in the selection criteria.

There have been cases where interstate candidates have been short-listed because they haven’t included their address.

Personally, I think putting your address on the head of a resume is a bit old fashioned.

But I also think, in a hyper competitive job market, if it gives me an edge due to localism, i.e., you know the local culture and idioms, I’d tick all of the boxes.

Ultimately, it’s personal choice.

Referees

I tell line workers and people working in junior or mid-level positions, to include their referee contact details.

If you’re short-listed, it saves the recruiter calling you.

But hey, they’re going to call you anyway to say you’re short-listed.

Sometimes recruiters won’t ask for referee details until they have the final two or three candidates.

I tell executives and senior managers not to include senior report contact details.

They have occasionally been used by unscrupulous recruiters to pitch candidates too.

The senior report asks, ‘how did you get my number?’ It’s not a good look.

Put your best foot forward
