If someone you know is looking to hire or be hired, please think of us.

We will take good care of anyone you refer. We can answer questions they have about the market or talk through ways to optimise their hiring process. We can even introduce them to other specialist recruiters if their skills are not in areas we know extremely well. So if you're unsure, refer them anyway.

Successful referrals are rewarded with your choice of a gift voucher, donation to charity or community event sponsorship to the value of $1,000. (Eligible three months after successful placement. Referral must be to a client or candidate we are not currently working with.)

Curriculum Vitae, Resume, Cover Letter

While ‘CV’ and 'resume’ are terms that are often used interchangeably, there are differences to keep in mind.

A CV (Curriculum Vitæ, Latin for ‘course of life’) is a compilation of your work history and is usually only updated as your career grows. It can be more than two pages long and is usually very descriptive. For example, you would usually include your academic accomplishments (like dissertations, fellowships and grants) and any other educational experiences. As this format can be quite dense, it is also preferable to include a cover letter which draws highlights from your CV.

A resume is a brief summary of your CV and it is recommend to keep it to two pages in length, three pages max. It is intended to catch the eye of a prospective employer by bringing your skills and experiences to the forefront in a concise format. For example, you can include links to your portfolio, LinkedIn and have a summary of your experience, education, skills or other relevant attributes.

A cover letter or resume should be tailored to the position you’re applying for by focusing on what you’ll bring to the job through past experiences and showing the interest you have in the company and/or job.

At Lookahead we highly recommend having a resume available. If you’re a developer who’s looking for a change and need some help with brushing up your resume, feel free to get in touch.
