    Resume/CV

    Hello Australian planners,

    I'm trying to format my North American resume/CV to conform to Australian standards and am having a hard time finding appropriate templates into which I can shoehorn my job experience/education/etc. Any advice/links you could provide would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Do a google search for "resume sample .au". That will increase the hits for Australian web sites with resume samples.

    Several that came up for me:

    http://www.careerfaqs.com.au/resume-...esume-template

    http://employmentguide.com.au/

    http://career-advice.careerone.com.a...sume/jobs.aspx

    http://www.swinburne.edu.au/corporat...australia.html


    There are more, those are just the ones I lazily copied from Google.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks, these are definitely helpful. I was also hoping for something more tailored to the planning job market.

    Hi there, im sure those templates would all be fine, in terms of detail it really depends whether you are going for jobs in the public sector or in private. For a lot of government jobs you have to write written responses to selection criteria, as these are usually long and detailed and include examples of work done, the actual cv tends to be briefer (~ 2 pages) because otherwise you'd be repeating yourself. For jobs without written selection criteria I'd make the cv more detailed.
