After recently completing his university studies in Primary School Teaching, the client was ready to start applying for advertised roles. We helped him to develop a compelling resume and cover letter.
The client wanted assistance in linking their extensive experience as a Registered Nurse to transition away from frontline delivery and into preventative health.
When the opportunity to apply for her role permanently arose the client knew there would be many applicants. The application needed to succinctly address the selection criteria with tangible examples. The cover letter, statement of claims and resume needed to be cohesive and well written, showing a good understanding of both the nursing and vocational training sectors.
Within the role of Service Desk Analyst, applicants are responsible for supporting end-users through incident management processes by accurately recording, updating and closing incident records, capturing the resolution and knowledge in the ICT Incident Management System. To apply for this role, the client was required to provide a 600-word statement of claims addressing the criteria outlined in the job description.
