HOW TO STAND OUT

DON’T use graphics, text boxes, and columns as these can cause your content to be lost or read incorrectly.

DO help the system find your relevant information by using standard resume headings like ‘work history’ and ‘education’ that the system will be searching for.

DON’T try to ‘beat the system’ by including keywords or skills you don’t have as these systems are smart and can now search and analyse your information in context.

DO tailor your resume to align with the requirements of the job post and reflect the specific terminology/keywords used in the post where possible.

DO spell out qualifications and industry terminology in full and follow with the acronym.

DO follow application instructions about resume file types and requirements, and answer any screening questions in full. Microsoft Word is usually the best file type unless otherwise specified.

DO remember the ultimate decision maker will be human so create your resume to still appeal to a human reader.
