What should I include in my Jobs Victoria online hub profile ?

Your profile is made up of two sections - About Me & Work Experience. Both are equally important!

Step 1: About Me Section

Summary;

Your summary is all about you! This is where you can highlight your skills, achievements & professional interests.

What to write;

  • Industries you have experience working in and why do you like working in them

  • Type of employment are you looking for. E.g. Part-time or Full-time

  • Roles/industries are you interested in working in

  • Your professional strengths and skills

  • Things you have learnt/achieved throughout your job experience so far

  • Courses you are currently studying or have completed

When you’re not working;

Potential employers are interested in learning about you as a person, as well as your work experience. Therefore it is important to include a couple of sentences that show off your personality and interests, for example:

  • Movies: If you like watching movies what type of movie do you watch?

  • Cooking: If you like cooking, what type of cuisine is your favourite to cook?

  • Exercise: If you like to exercise what type of exercise and what do you like about it?

  • Reading: If you like to read, what genre is your favourite to read?

  • Pets: Do you have any pets?
