As a recruiter, quite often I get asked, "can I have some feedback as to why I was unsuccessful in gaining an interview".
Well, first impressions are very important, as we all know, so why is it that people do not think about this when submitting a resume.
Your resume is your "foot in the door" so to speak, and generally the first contact between yourself and the company's recruitment department so it is imperative that your resume is set out well and is designed to catch the eye of the recruiter.
It's often said that it's not what you know but who you know that counts. Last month Leighton Contractors in WA employed 13 new fulltime staff employees in professional roles between our Pluto, RGP5 and West Perth offices / projects. Of these thirteen, six of them were referred to us by our current employees.
At Leighton Contractors we understand that job seeking in the current market can be a daunting prospect and often the information you need to make informed decisions about your career and your future is not readily available to you and that it is often difficult to obtain answers to questions that perhaps aren't generic queries and ones that maybe only you need the answers to.
