Hi Nick.

Thank you for your email. Can I suggest we start with your resume?

Resumes are your first chance to make a good impression. I can give you some feedback on your resume if you send me a copy via the resume workflow on USQ's Access Hub.

You can also book a consultation with one of the USQ Career Development Practitioners via Access Hub, so we can help you further.

Hi Nick, its Katie from USQ's Careers and Employability team.

I've had a look at your resume and have some feedback for you.

  • It's really important that you tailor your resume to each and every job you apply for.
  • Use a simple clean design.
  • Limit the length of your resume to two pages.
  • The last thing you should always do before hitting send is proofread your resume for any grammatical errors, spelling mistakes or typos.

Wishing you all the best with your future applications, Nick. You've got this!
