Chintan's tips

One: Establish your skill set and add it to your resume 

  • Identify skills you have acquired throughout your course and any experience you have gained along the way.  
  • Once your skill set is up to date, ensure it is clearly set out on your resume.  
  • Compare and align your skill set with the job descriptions of graduate roles you wish to apply for.
  • Bonus tip: you can up your skillset by completing linkedin learning short courses.

Two: Keep your resume short and sweet 

  • Resumes are the best way to catch a recruiter's attention.  
  • Use free templates online (such as Canva) to create a neat resume.  
  • Summarise the experience you have and align it with your skillset and the job description. 
    • E.g., "during my internship I completed .... task and as such, I have become skilled at ..."

Three: Utilising LinkedIn for networking and job opportunities. 

  • When searching for a company you aspire to work for, you can use the ‘people’ tab to connect with alumni from RMIT or people that have studied a similar degree to you.  
  • Many recruiters provide their email address on their profile, you can email them your resume directly and let them know your skills and why you are interested in the job. 
  • Bonus tip: A premium LinkedIn account gives you the ability to directly message people rather than waiting for your request to be approved.  

Four: Get experience 

  • Look for internship opportunities while you are studying. 
  • Internships give you experience to add to your resume and confidence in applying for future roles.  
  • Some internships even lead to being kept on as a casual or part-time employee.
