Preparing application documents

Most job vacancies require you to submit a resume, cover letter and sometimes statements against selection criteria or other documents that provide evidence of you meeting the key criteria required.

These documents allow a prospective employer to assess whether you have the right skills, knowledge, personal qualities and genuine passion to work in their organisation.

A strong resume and cover letter tailored for the position will improve your chance of being invited for an interview.

Improve your resume writing skills

The resume-writing module on CareerWise will help you develop your resume. You can get feedback on your resume by booking yourself into a group Resume Rescue Session through CareerHub.

If you need a second review of your application documents, depending on the time of year, you might be able to upload them through CareerHub.  One of our Careers Advisers will review your application online within 3-5 working days. Alternatively, you can book an individual appointment for more feedback.  

We will only provide an individual consultation after you have completed and reviewed Module 3 on CareerWise, or have attended at least one Resume Rescue Session.

Should you have any questions about our process, call our reception at 02 9850 7372 or send an email to careers@mq.edu.au
