11 Of The Best Ways To Look For New Employment in 2021:

The job market typically reflects the overall economic landscape. If the economy sputters, growing in fits and starts as the effects of the pandemic begin to lessen in 2021, businesses may still hold back on hiring new people.  


Things are looking up, but volatility with surges and purges in the market will continue.

Workforce transformation was affecting the market before Covid-19, and it will continue to after.

The best action to take is to assume a proactive stance by monitoring your field for emerging opportunities, evolving your skills and optimizing your brand to stay relevant, valuable and visible in the market. – Gillian Kelly, Outplacement Australia

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.
