Melinda has a strong commitment to helping you see your goals through. Having previously worked as a recruiter in Melbourne CBD, Melinda knows what will help you stand out from the rest, and will assist in assessing job applications to give you the best chance.
What is the impression you give people as you walk into a room? If you were in an elevator with the HR Manager of a business you’ve always wanted to work in, how would you introduce yourself and explain what you do, in a matter of seconds? These impressions are your ‘brand’. We work with you to identify your personal brand and focus on what it is that makes you unique.
It is said that the average recruiter will view your resume for around 6 seconds to assess suitability to a role. This is YOUR opportunity to make the right impression and take your job search to the next stage. Melinda will uncover concisely who you are, highlight previous achievements, and use current formats to ensure your resume will have the best chance when being assessed by scanning technology (ATS). LinkedIn is just as critical as your resume, and Melinda will ensure all areas of your LinkedIn profile are written, and appropriate title and keywords are used for your industry.
