Successful October Workshop wrapup: STEM Cover Letter and Resume workshop

Thanks again to the amazing RMIT Skills and Jobs Centre, Nicole for a tailored workshop with examples on how to tailor a winning Resume and Cover Letter! 

Key learnings: 

  • Nothing new but tailor that Resumes for each job you apply for!
  • You don’t need to add just your Bachelor degree, change it up and utilise a ‘Relevant Qualification’ sector rather than ‘Education’ on your Resume if that suits the job description better.
  • It’s all about how you word your Resume and Cover Letter – you worked at Maccas or had a really technical role, think about how you can brand this as a transferable skill!
  • A referee local to Australia is best. So how do you get one? Use a mentor. Played on a sports team? Ask a teammate or coach. Volunteered? Ask your manager or colleague.
  • Your Cover Letter is a structured STORY that tells the hiring manager, WHY you have applied and WHY you would fit perfectly for that role.
  • Don’t worry about meeting all the criteria, think about how your skills would benefit the employer and market yourself through that view!
