Should I send out my resume in a picture/non-editable version or in an editable document file? By Matthew Coppola

The benefit of sending out your resume in a Portable Document Format (PDF format) is that it can be easily read on a mobile phone/table and does not require the user to have a particular word processing software to view and open the document.

Also, by putting your resume in PDF format, it can help to make sure that your resume is nice and tidy, and that there are hopefully no formatting errors when viewing the resume.

Client Centric Executive Employment Solutions is an Australian based business that assists with CV/Resume writing, addressing key selection criteria and covering letters to help you with give your best foot forward to an employer.

The question in an interview “What pay rate are you looking for?”

You’re all excited about an up and coming interview lined up for you. The day comes, you put on your best clothes and head off for the job interview. During the interview, they may ask you what pay rate you are looking for. This is not something that you haven’t thought about. It’s serious and the pay means a lot to you. It’s the reward that you will receive for all your hard work, taking into account your skills and knowledge as well as the appropriate rate for your industry and level of position. So you might say to them a particular rate you are after, or what you were on in your last role. Some people prefer to say that they don’t have a particular rate of pay in mind, but would like to negotiate.

Whatever you say, the interviewer may just look down at your resume, think about your experience and how much they are willing to pay, then may either mention this to you or say that they will discuss it should you be successful for the position. You leave the interview feeling pretty confident.

A day later, they call you up saying that you have been successful for the position and what they are willing to pay. You negotiate over the phone and soon, come to an agreement.

According to the 2013 ABS Labour Force Survey, the participation rate (number of people who are either employed or are actively looking for work) in Melbourne was 65.5% with the unemployment rate being 6%. More recently (Nov. 2014) the unemployment rate is standing at 6.3%.

With less jobs available and more jobseekers applying for jobs, this increases the competition in the jobs market and makes it more difficult for jobseekers to find gainful employment. We help jobseekers to be more competitive and have the edge of their competitors by writing them a professional and tailored resume.
