Resume Writing and Cover Letters

Organisations expect you to have a professional resume and cover letter. Write your resume before you start your search. 

Use this Resume Sample as a model for your resume. This format is proven to be the most successful resume format for students as it emphasises your achievements in each of your roles rather than the tasks you did. Use this layout, font size and structure to give yourself the best possible chance of success.
