When was the last time you updated your resume? Did you know that resume styles are changing? On today at Horsham Community House, we will be helping our job seekers update their resumes with the new skills and knowledge they have learned during their work in the Work for the Dole activity over the last three months.
Resumes have evolved over the last few years and you should be continuously updating yours. Some tips from Forbes magazine, and job recruitment agencies is
- keep your resume short – 1 or 2 pages only
- only include information from the last 5 years
- don’t include your secondary school education (unless you are a recent graduate)
Cover letters should also be included in your job application, to help you stand out, you should customise your cover letter for the job you are applying for.
