The jobs market in Sydney can certainly be fairly competitive, depending on the industry you are seeking employment in. But, if someone was searching for work in Sydney, how can they best apply for work?

Online job sites in Australia such as seek.com.au and au.indeed.com are wonderful sites to use, straight forward, clear and easy to apply for the right job.

Other ways that you can apply for work is by cold calling prospective businesses and recruitment agencies to send through a copy of your resume to see if there are any suitable roles available or if they could keep your CV on file for any future vacancies.

Other approaches include signing up to recruitment agencies for any permanent or temporary vacancies.

But, most importantly, the best tool that you can have in your job search tool kit is a professionally written and tailored CV and cover letter that will help market and promote you to a prospective employer.

What is an employer looking for when they see my resume? By Matthew Coppola


When an employer or a recruiter reviews your resume and cover letter, they are essentially screening your application to determine whether or not you meet their business’ needs and job criteria and if so, whether they will invite you in for an interview or not. If it is one of the first few applications that have come through, they most likely will take more time to read your application, but less time most likely if they have many applicants vying for the position.

It, therefore, makes sense to put in an application early. But even if your application isn’t submitted first, it is essential to make sure the documents are easy to read. That is, the cover letter is tailored and the resume markets effectively your full range of skills and experience relevant for the position.

The importance of addressing key selection criteria. By Matthew Coppola


More and more jobs these days require a set of key selection criteria to be addressed. From positions in Government to roles in the Health Care sector, the human resources team want to know that you can demonstrate that you have the right level of experience and practical skills that match up with the key selection criteria.

So, is it essential to address the required set of key selection criteria for a job that you want consideration?

It most certainly is!

By not addressing the set of selection criteria may work against your chances of being considered for the position.

Are you applying for a role which has a key selection criteria to address and would like assistance? Are you interested in having your resume professionally revamped and written?

How can I best market myself to an employer? By Matthew Coppola


Employers are interested in what you have to offer them and so they are looking for a justifiable reason to invest in you by providing you with employment. Their investment for a 40 hour work week is to obtain productivity out of you and in turn make more money and grow their business.

So the question you may ask yourself is:

How best can I market myself to an employer and show them that I have the skills that they need to perform the required duties?

First step is to work out exactly what kind of requirements needs to be fulfilled for a particular position that you want to apply for. Most job advertisements these days will list these. You should at least try and qualify for 90% of those requirements, but of course circumstances vary.

“try and qualify for 90% of those requirements”

Next step is to work out exactly what it is you have to offer to meet those requirements. Best way to approach this is to think about all the transferrable skills and relevant experience you have developed over the course of your working life together with the skills/aptitudes gained from your studies. This is why work experience/voluntary work and undertaking courses and education are great ways you can develop some valuable skills and experience you can put on your resume.

The final step is to match your skills and experience that you have come up with to the requirements of the position and make sure most of these are explained in your covering letter and at least highlighted in your CV.

Does randomly posting out your resume deliver results?


I have been asked this question before by my clients. Majority of the time they are either not feeling confident enough to cold call employers or they are unable or again not confident enough to go an cold visit employers face to face.

In answering this question, well yes it can deliver some results and yes they may be very successful results. I for myself have posted out my clients resume to employers especially time poor employers or those who work odd hours, such as businesses in the hospitality/entertainment industry and even Child care centres funnily enough.

But like most things in life, you need to keep your options open. When it comes to applying for jobs, I suggest not keeping all your eggs in one basket. Try emailing, posting, cold calling, applying on-line, etc.
