CASE STUDY – June 2016

In June 2016, I was approached by a high-level Administration Officer / Project Officer. Phay had been made redundant five months earlier. Since then, she had applied for approximately 35 jobs which resulted in only 2 interviews prior to getting a temp position via a friend.  Phay was on the verge of moving interstate which was a last resort because she did not want to move away from family and friends.

Phay asked me to review her résumé and to help her with a cover letter for a job she was about to apply for. What was wrong with the résumé and what did I do about it?

  1. Phay used most of Page 1 to describe the junior, part-time role she was currently acting in. So, she was sending mixed messages because the rest of her résumé centred on much more senior roles.
    I fixed that up by ensuring that her previous more senior role featured on page 1.
  2. Phay's résumé was very unattractive – old-fashioned font, poor and confusing layout and spacing. 
    I used one of our résumé templates so that the layout obeyed the rules of modern documents.
  3. Phay’s résumé had no achievement statements at all. 
    I helped her to write powerful achievement statements so that they became strong marketing statements.

Phay’s cover letter broke three key rules, so I helped her to complete a powerful document that:

  1. Positioned her as the ideal candidate
  2. Conveyed clearly how keen she was on the role
  3. Ensured that she sounded normal and natural – the type of person you’d enjoy working with.

The outcome? Dramatic, but not unusual. Within 1.5 weeks, Phay had been contacted for two interviews – one as a Trainer and another as an Education Support Officer.
