Here at Signature Staff Australia we understand that, as an employer, you may have a number of questions that revolve around staff and even recruitment.

Can you give me any suggestions on how to prepare for a job interview?

If you know the company that is advertising, research who they are, and find out as much as you can about them.

Most people get nervous when interviewing, you could run through some interview questions with a friend or partner, however, some people can over prepare…….. be confident and get a good night’s sleep beforehand! (an ironed shirt won’t go amiss either!)

Here are a few of blog posts that can assist:

What should I have on my Resume, to make it stand out more?

We recommend you keep your Resume relevant to the position that you are applying for; highlighting your skills and experience that relate to the position advertised. Also include a Cover Letter, telling us a little about yourself and why you are applying to the role.

If you’re shortlisted for a position you would want to ensure your contact details, such as your contact phone number and email are up-to-date.

Make your CV stand out from the Crowd

I am on a Holiday / Working Visa, can I still register with Signature Staff?

At Signature Staff, we are pleased to employ individuals who hold Working Holiday Visas, Student Visas, or other visas that grant full working rights in Australia.

For permanent positions, the majority of our clients prefer candidates with permanent residency or Australian citizenship. However, when our clients are open to considering candidates with visas other than permanent residency or citizenship, such as a Working Holiday Visa, this will be clearly stated in the job advertisement.

Can you recommend where I can get help with writing my Resume?

To create a professional and effective CV, begin by conducting online research for guidance and resources on resume writing. Additionally, consider seeking the assistance of a professional resume writing service.

In terms of format, determine if a chronological or skill-based approach would best showcase your experience and qualifications. A skill-based CV may be a suitable option if you have a diverse range of skills and experiences to highlight. This format emphasizes your strengths and relevant qualifications, allowing potential employers to easily see the value you can bring to their organization.

Where do you suggest I go to further the skills I already have?

There are many online / internal courses that you can do to further your knowledge and skillset – First think about what you want to achieve with this qualification, is it to grow within a role you’re already in, for a possible promotion, or are you wanting to move into a completely different industry? Make a Career Plan and talk to a career advisor at a local training institute to get their advice on which course would be most suited.

How many references do I need to provide?

You need to supply 3 professional references – ideally from your direct managers.

How long does the recruitment process take after my initial interview?

The process can take anywhere from 2 – 4 weeks, depending on the type of position. You will receive updates from us via email or phone on how your application is progressing thought-out this time.

How do I apply for a position that I’ve seen advertised?
