Hi,

There are lots of places online to see a resume and even on this forum you will find different points of view. A basic structure is:

- Personal details
- Summary of skills
- Qualifications and certificates
- Employment history
- Referees

Some people will say that your resume should be no longer than two pages etc. I disagree both as an employer and someone in this industry. You need to concisely present relevant information to a potential employer on what you have to offer and why they would employ you. I know as an employer as well that I would not pay a wage to someone who I did not check out fully first.

Hope this helps.


Regards

John

The most important part of your Resume will always be your Australian experience and your skills. Employers will be looking at that area in the first place.

Why do Australia employment emphasis for local experience? If the equipment operation method is same as others country then i believed if the person have experienced and skills, why he is not given fair chance to demonstrate his/her ability instead of local exp.

Because too many immigrants are making up their overseas experience and in most cases there is no way to check if it is real.

I can`t add links so " interviewiq. com.au/top10resumemistakes ", you know what to do Generally Karalyn`s advices on this page are very useful (look at her other articles too). In case of Cover Letter examples " seek. com.au/jobs-resources/cover-letters ".

The curriculum vitae can change in structure and format from country to country and therefore it is important that you do your homework in this particular field. In simple terms, your CV is your one and only chance to sell yourself and ensure that you at least receive some form of contact from the potential employer.

Even if you have the best experience in the world, the most sought-after skills, unless you get this across in your CV you could lose out.
