A friend rang me after applying for 40+ jobs in 2 months with 0 contacts and 0 interviews

I got him 4 recruiter contacts, 3 interviews and 1 officer in 2 weeks

Here's what we tweaked:

He initially told me he was job hunting and would prefer to apply online

After reading his profile, I tried to discourage him, but he insisted on online applications.

I agreed but on a condition
I told him:

"If you don't get a job in 60 days, we will do it my way"

He agreed.

I had a 50% pay cut when I left my casual jobs in Australia to start a professional 9-5 one

You might think it's a crazy idea

Here are five reasons why it wasn't:

1. Post-Study Visa

After my degree, I received a two-year post-study work visa.

This visa lets you work unlimited hours in Australia. Same with Canada, the UK, etc

The problem is that many international students don't use this visa correctly.

- Use it to work as much as they
- Use it to relax, cool off and travel the world for months

I am not saying this is bad, but if your goal is to get a permanent visa, then you need to understand that these aren't your immediate priorities.

I get shortlisted for at least 90% of the jobs I apply for.

Here are the 5 resume strategies that work for me every single time.

[Not your average resume advice]

1. Knowing the job of a resume

Your application process becomes easier once you understand that a resume only has one job.

-- To SELL you. @OgbeniDipo

Yes, a resume is a marketing tool.

If it doesn't sell you, then forget it.

You won't smell the interview door no matter how solid your skills are or how talented you are.

You are the king, and your resume is your messenger.

It needs to represent you and convey your message properly. @ritapurity

Aiming for a #career in #ecology but not sure which options exist or which skills you need? Do you have such students seeking advice? Check out our new @Ecol_Evol… We know this feeling well so we created a fun game to explore ecology career paths! >>
This applied trump card game is provided as an appndix to this #openaccess paper, and can be printed freely. Our goal is to help prospective ecologists to familiarize themselves with potential career paths, and academic mentors to provide better career advice of their students >>
We also wanted to demonstrate the diversity of career paths that exist in the ecology job market, and emphasize that although many of us want to find a faculty position, a career outside #academia is NOT a failure, but a choice, and the better choice for many #AcademicChatter >>

Many international students enrol for another degree to remain lawful in various countries because they couldn't find a job.

I feel terrible.


It can be very expensive to study again.

Here are 5 ways to avoid this loop:
#1. Mindset

The problem with many students is that they only think about work after they graduate.

They live like we are in the 80s.
In the '80s:

- Education wasn't as common
- Employers wooed students with jobs
- Our parents got jobs before leaving school.

E.g. My dad, in his early 20's, got a job before leaving school. The job came with a brand new official car and a driver.

Ep 69 is out!

Somer Esat shares advice on coaching engineers on their career path as an engineering manager.

Check out the full interview:…

Hosted by @FancyKarolina, powered by @codingsans

#EngineeringManagement #leadership #careerdevelopment
Here are a few takeaways:

1. Manage information wisely

As an EM, you talk to ICs, leads and the technical director regularly. Make sure you share helpful information with them while also creating a reporting structure where people can talk about their problems confidentially.
2. Coach engineers in their career development

Encourage engineers to evaluate their growth, to pinpoint areas to improve and to ask for help from their lead or seniors on the team. Have career development discussions with them, and discuss the expectations of the next level.

I have reviewed 100+ resumes of graduates and early career professionals in 2022.

99% of these resumes need massive re-work

Here are 12 common issues I noticed

#1. Resume Length

Most CVs with 4-5 pages have less than 3 years of work experience.

#Employers will only scan your resume for less than 10 seconds

Keep it to one page
#2. Formatting

Many of these CVs are poorly formatted.

- Margins are not concise
- Bullet points are out of order
- Inconsistent font size and style

Dear International Students and Graduates,

I will explain why it seems employers don't want to hire you and what you can do better.

#1. You are considered high-risk

Hiring is a risky business.

You are worried employers don't want to hire you, but the employers are afraid you might not be able to perform in the role.
Would you blame the employer?

Maybe not.

A bad hire is essentially time and money wasted.
Employers don't like to go back to the drawing board.

As an int'l graduate in Australia, I got turned back by the reception each time I approached an organisation in person in hopes of finding work.

Here is my mistake and what I did to fix it to land a job.


If you are like me, you wake up one day and approach an organisation in search of a job.

There's nothing wrong what this approach, but it often fails, especially in advanced countries.
So, here's my mistake:

I walk in with my resume and meet the receptionist.

Me: Hello, I am looking for a job within this organisation.

Reception: Oh ok. All positions are advertised online on our website. Please visit the company's website.

Dear Prospective or Current International Student,

You are grossly under-utilising your tuition fees if all you do is to attend classes and wait for exams

Here's how to get the most out of your tuition and

1. Training

Go to your library and find out which training are available for students to attend for free.

Most schools have free sessions.
I started learning #R and #Python at #UQ library

I landed jobs in AU because I could program in #R

Find out which software you need for your role(s), and check if your school run a free training

2016: Commenced studies in AU
2018: Completed studies
2019: Landed two jobs in AU without applying online
2020: AU Global Talent Award (PR, essentially)
2021: AU Citizenship Approved

I will share 8 key insights that were useful in this journey:


1. Clarity of goals

Be clear about what you want from the onset.
Your goal needs to be as clear as water.
It's hard to achieve your goals without clear and pe-defined goals.
Lots of money, time and resources are wasted in the absence of a clear goal.
Know what you want.
2. Upgrade your thinking:

I was in school but hardly thought like a student.

I started planning how to get a job in my first semester, not on graduation day.

Start early to get ahead.

Dear International Graduates,

You can hone your skills and bump your income on your 9 to 5 job if you want.

I understand it’s challenging, but it’s not impossible.

I will show you how I doubled my income within 18 months as a graduate working 9 to 5 in Australia

1 — It starts with a desire

Every goal starts with a decision & a genuine desire to make it happen

When there is no desire, there is no passion, no willpower to make it happen. If you can't change your mindset, don’t read on, you will not follow through

You must decide
2 — Identify your strengths

Competence is key.

Employers exchange money for your services. The greater the services you provide, the better your value.

You have to get really good in your field to get more money. You need to be better than average.

Where to go and how to get started hiring a #Coach by @barryoreilly and @kleto:

1. CLARIFY YOUR PURPOSE for coaching.

#HRwithEM #Leadership #Management #CareerDevelopment #EmployeeExperience
Be accountable to why coaching matters to you, not something else. It's your personal professional development - own it.

#HRwithEM #Leadership #Management #CareerDevelopment #EmployeeExperience
2. IDENTIFY A CHALLENGE that you are personally struggling with.

Consultants by @barryoreilly

Consultants are brought in to answer specific questions or address specific challenges for an organisation.

#HRwithEM #Leadership #Management #CareerDevelopment
They provide recommendations - based on their own experience, market trends, research, and many other inputs - and are often asked to be responsible for implementing those recommendations.

#HRwithEM #Leadership #Management #CareerDevelopment #EmployeeExperience
Again, a key distinction from coaches is that a consultant provides the answer - and maybe even own delivering of it - while a coach helps you facilitate your own answers.

Mentors by @barryoreilly

Mentors give those with less experience advice or assistance in a specific area.

#HRwithEM #Leadership #Management #CareerDevelopment #EmployeeExperience
For example, when mentoring someone in product management, we may cover specific techniques and tools that they would like to understand better - like Discovery, Stoey Mapping, user interviews, etc.

#HRwithEM #Leadership #Management #CareerDevelopment #EmployeeExperience
Mentors may even advise on the skills needed to move up to the next level in a client's career.

Six principles for conversation:

1) Avoid company where it is not profitable or necessary, and on those occasions, speak little, and last.


#HRwithEM #Leadership #Management #CareerDevelopment #EmployeeExperience
2) Silence is wisdom, where speaking is folly; and always safe.


#HRwithEM #Leadership #Management #CareerDevelopment #EmployeeExperience
3) Some are so foolish as to interrupt and anticipate those that speak, instead of hearing and thinking before they answer, which is uncivil, as well as silly.
