Australian Resumes are different to American and European styles. Australian Resumes tend to be 2-4 pages long using Australian English or English UK spelling. An Australian Resume is achievement based and should articulate major initiatives, key milestones and/or the impact made during employment to stand out from the competition.

Your resume plays an important role in keeping track of your contributions and ultimately selling your potential. Apply for your next career with a professionally resume written for the Australian marketplace.
