Job application resources
Your job application is the first impression a potential employer has of you, so it is important to ensure that your first impression is a positive one.
Before applying for jobs you must understand what employers look for in a graduate in order to tailor your application to what they are seeking.
Attributes an employer may look for are:
- academic performance
- personal development
- relevant work experience
- generic skills and attributes such as teamwork, communication skills and problem solving.
After you have assessed what you think your potential employer wants you can start your application, which may include:
- preparing your application letter or application
- preparing your resume, and
- addressing selection criteria.
Once you have written your resume or selection criteria you can email it to one of our Career Counsellors for a professional assessment.
