JadeWilks Posted May 13, 2014 Report Share Posted May 13, 2014 (edited) Hi all,Just wanted to share an experience with everyone. In Dec, my husband received confirmation of an internal transfer for us to relocate to Sydney, Australia. We are currently in Cape Town. Since receiving news, I have been frantically applying for new roles for me when I relocate. However, after two months, I was starting to get worried. Only automated responses from recruitment agencies.My friend recommended a company called itouch solutions, an Australian based resume writer. The transformation has been incredible - feels like a totally new me. I can see the mistakes I was making before, but more over, they used a number of tips to focus on my competencies, transferable skills, and totally re-aligned my resume.Since then, I had phone calls and I start a new job in two weeks (just one week after we touch down !!!!).Some tips the company also shared with me was; if necessary, take out location on your CV as overseas applications often get rejected, or at the very least, add a specified arrival date on the Cover letter. Make sure they gain see Australian PR if you have it. Change your position title to reflect the market title. Don't be scared to totally revamp all your content in the resume and align the content with your intended target (the last point probably being the most important).The company I used can be found on www.resume-solutions.com.au (itouch resumes). Try and use Roland if you can, he was the one I was recommended to and I can't speak highly enough.I hope all goes wellPeaceJade xx Edited May 13, 2014 by JadeWilks 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
