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.)

The difference between a CV and a resume

I used to think it was two ways of saying the same thing.

I was wrong!

Resume: briefly talks about your experience and should be tailored to the role you’re applying for.

Curriculum vitae: (apparently Latin for ‘course of life’) goes into much more detail. You’d start off outlining your academic background then explaining your career history and achievements. You write a cover letter instead of tailoring your CV.

In software, all you need is a resume. Go for two pages when applying for jobs in Australia, ideally supplemented with an online presence (think Github profile, portfolio website).

All your resume needs to do is get you an interview. Once you’re in the interview, give them the verbal CV and try take cues from the interviewer on when to speed up / slow down.
