The Number one tip for finding a job in Australia –  

Have an Australian CV and Resume written by an experts in Australian Recruitment for over 17 Years.

Australian employer’s expectations are high for how CV’s and Resumes are and are not written. Australian organisations have preferred CV and Resume styles for how the content, context and format are presented.

Employers will often immediately reject or be reluctant to consider an application based on the presentation, style and context.

Many migrants CV’s are simply not appropriate to how Australian organisations expect and are poorly written.

Australian CVs are different to virtually every other country and even from US and UK CVs. Australian employers want to see ‘very specific details in a very specific way’.  They do not so much focus on qualifications, position or status of company.

We strongly urge you to Invest in an Australian style CV/resume and cover letter. This is an essential outlay which will save you incredible amounts of time and save you money.

Goodman Migration Services offer a CV and Resume writing service which works closely with you to create both a comprehensive base CV which includes all your skills to work from for different job applications and a concise Resume to use in other situations. We will adapt and write the content, context and layout, for different applications, minimising and maximising areas relevant to each job you apply for.

Your CV is your database of experience and skills, we will design an effective CV and Resume based on over 20 years of experience writing, presenting, formatting, analysing, and measuring the effectiveness of different CV’s and Resume’s. We also have invaluable information and insights from sitting next to hiring managers from diverse companies when they review applicants CV’s and Resumes. This feedback gives us invaluable inside secrets to how your CV is read, or indeed not read !

We have written thousands of advertisements for hundreds of different Australian Employers.

We know what a good application is that gets looked at – And we also know a bad application when we see one !

You might want to know what jobs you can apply for and make sure you dont miss an amazing opportunity that you thought was beyond your reach – We can help and tell yu which jobs you can apply for and work with you to create cover letter’s or guidance through the application process.

Experience and insights to help you with every aspect of your application means you are not left thinking ‘Why did they not reply?”  or  “What did I do wrong?”


Job Offer’s, Salary negotiations, Employment Conditions, Laws, Regulations, Entitlements.

When offered a job negotiating the terms and conditions and the remuneration is an important consideration which is often overlooked in the excitement and relief of receiving an offer of employment.

When finding an Australian job it is essential to understand the relevant employment conditions, law and documentation so you know your rights and entitlements in in terms of what a employer’s offer.

Goodman Migration Services can provide new migrants advice and guidance during this time to ensure your new job is both financially rewarding and the conditions are fair and favourable to you, in line with the laws, industry and labour market.

More than 1 quarter of Australian employees work on a casual or contract  basis, these  workers can be especially vulnerable if they don’t know their rights. Goodman migration Services partner with a market leading Recruitment and HR Consultancy to provide Employment conditions guidance and advice to you.

Gain local experience through volunteering. A comparatively large proportion of Australians do volunteer work to contribute to the community, meet people, learn skills and improve their career opportunities. Volunteering may not be a normal part of your own culture, but it has more benefits than you probably realise. People from all walks of life in Australia including Top Executives consider it an essential part of their culture to volunteer. Many Australians volunteer as a natural part of building their career and to improve their chances of finding an Australian job.

Understanding and working with ‘Selection Criteria’s.

We will help you as part of a mentor program or as an individual service Item in analysing, understanding, meeting, written applications for and interviewing with, Selection Criteria’s from Australian organisations.

Selection criteria describe the attributes a person is required to have in order to do a job effectively, such as qualifications, knowledge, skills, abilities and experience.

These may or may not be advertised clearly or communicated objectively. They may be subjectively or objectively divided into:

  1. Essential criteria
  2. Desirable criteria.

Most skilled migrants and even native English speakers often find Australian Selection Criteria difficult to address correctly.

To have a chance of success we strongly recommend professional assistance to save you time, confusion and frustration. Goodman Migration Services Australian career training and advice ‘Job Mentorship Program’ is designed to work with you in answering selection criteria or you choose this subject individually as a service item we can provide for you.

Understanding Australian employers, style, behaviour’s and demeanour

Office attire, language and communications styles are very different between Australian industries and businesses operating in Australia. Body language and non verbals can make up over 60% of an interaction and often the perception of a candidate and employee.

Australian employers often seem casual and laid back, indeed Australia has a reputation for a laid back and relaxed way of doing things. However this is a trap which many migrants fall into to their detriment.

An interview may be requested in a manner that seems informal or casual E.g ‘lets have a coffee together’ or ‘can you come in for a chat’ – However this may actually mean quite a formal interview with more than one interviewer present ! A business meeting or a ‘catch up over coffee’ may actually be a critical part of a decision making process.

It is important in Australia to appreciate the formal legal employment contract and the implicit employment contract between employer and employee are both two way agreements –

It is important to understand and consider that Australian employees know and appreciate they have something to offer the organisation – and their attitude strongly reflects this –

Different countries culture and attitude to work particularly the employer – employee relationship’s for both the implicit and contractual agreements may negatively impact a migrant’s chance of success in the interview and on the job.

The belief and attitude of the employee in the ‘servant – Master ‘ relationship with the employee as a servant in some countries affects many migrants approach and style which is unfavourable for the Australian labour market.

Complex Australian employment rules, Workplace relations, Health and safety legislation, industry codes and Laws are often very different to a migrant’s home country systems and laws. Displaying understanding and ability to adapt is very important for you to know and then also how to demonstrate this understanding.
