Resumes

A competitive resume is an essential part of any job application, and you will need to tailor yours to address the specific needs of individual opportunities.

Research shows that an employer will spend between 6 and 60 seconds reviewing your resume. Learning how to create a resume that demonstrates your relevant skills, experience and knowledge, is crucial to capturing a prospective employer's attention. Our resources are designed to assist you in creating a professional standard resume.

View the 'Resume, Cover Letter and Personal Branding' presentation for information on how to create a resume and cover letter that will highlight your skills and experience to your best advantage (presented May 2014). Read the article by Dr Fazlul Rabbanee from Curtin's School of Marketing, for tips on personal branding and effective resume writing.

Once you have reviewed the relevant resources and updated your resume, you can submit it through your career development dashboard on UniHub for an online review, or call in to Careers, Employment & Leadership for a 10 minute, face to face review with our Careers Officer.
