Your resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile are your first opportunity to shine with an employer or recruiter. How do you make sure you stand out from the crowd in the current market?
During our interview Amie covered how she finds candidates, what holds people back from getting through the initial shortlist and how the market has changed since March this year.
You can see the full interview here:
Amie gave some great insights, my favourites being:
- Make sure your LinkedIn profile is current and complete – many recruiters and employers connect and hire candidates directly from LinkedIn
- Recruiters may not always advertise a job – it’s a great idea to connect with a recruitment agency so they can get to know you and do some of the hard yards and job searching for you!
- The format, content and flow of your resume and cover letter are so important. You have a short window to really sell yourself here and if you can’t communicate how amazing you are, you will get overlooked. There are many companies like AD Connects that can help you if you need it.

I’m also running training for job seekers and movers. I cover what hiring managers are looking for, what to include in a resume (and what not to include), how to create a killer cover letter and how to prepare for an interview.
I provide tips and techniques to help you get noticed and increase your chance of getting to the interview. Find out more or book here.
