Tips for getting the most out of the online jobs platform

Once you’ve registered, add detail to your online profile:

  • This is your professional profile. Employers will see this when you apply for the job.
  • Treat your profile like your resumé. Add as much detail about your skills and experience as you can.
  • Include a photo if you feel comfortable to do so.

You can update your profile under ‘Account settings’.

Make the most of every job application:

  • Read the position description carefully before you apply. It outlines what the employer is looking for and helps you decide if it’s right for you.
  • Write an application that suits the job. Employers are usually looking for candidates who meet the needs of the job advertised.
  • Think about transferable skills. For example, if the job requires customer service and you have customer service experience in a different role or industry you should mention you have that skill. Make it clear how it relates to this job.
  • Show how you meet the requirements of the job. For example, if the job requires a driver’s licence and you have one, make sure you say that.
  • Take your time. Proofread or give it to someone else to read before you submit it, to limit mistakes and make sure you put your best foot forward.
