Tips for preparing your Resume
The resume is a tool with one specific purpose: to win an interview.
If it gets you a phone call or an interview, it works. If it doesn’t, it isn’t an effective resume.
It convinces the employer that you have what it takes to be successful in this new position or career.
OK, now that you have a job interview, you need to give yourself the best chance and make a good impression to ensure you get that job!

NDIS Support WorkerI would describe me as being a very positive, friendly, easy going kind of person. I love to meet new people and have a good chat. I like to talk about almost anything! I try to be helpful and understanding and love to see people happy and achieve their goals. Sometimes I can be a bit of a dreamer and imagine all kinds of awesome things that I could do in the future. I am working hard to achieve these dreams and will never stop. I have a very curious personality and love learning about new interesting things. I often google interesting topics I would like to know about and watch documentaries. I often enjoy going down to the beach for a swim and exploring walking trails. I am always trying to find other ways to entertain myself and spend time with loved ones. Somethings I do is attend community events, concerts and festivals which is always fun. I like to browse the shops and sometimes like to go to the markets. I am always open and interested in trying new things to do locally. Sometimes a creative mind helps to find new interesting things to do in a small town like Bowen, but we are never bored. I really love living in Bowen and the people are amazing.
