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.)

Talking @ TAFE

Last night I spoke at a TAFE presentation night, alongside @CathJones0 and @geoffroh .

The students had just completed Certificate IV in web based technologies and Diploma in website development and we were there to talk about the next step:

More and more people are learning how to develop software and the job market is certainly growing. However, graduates can’t simply walk into a junior developer role as soon as they finish study. Working with technology and developing software can result in a great job but it’s a competitive industry to start out in, so these students will need to get themselves noticed by hirers.

To help them stand out from the crowd, we spoke about demonstrating what they know and their motivations through Passion, Presence and Projects (a phrase coined by @mattallen) and how to stand out with your resume or CV, cover letter and interview. @CathJones0 and @geoffroh also spoke about their experiences and what they wish they had known when they first graduated.

It was a great night and I think the students appreciated our advice. I really enjoyed being able to help them in their search to get a job that they will love.

Thanks Dean and the team at TAFE for inviting us to speak; we had fun.
