How do you benefit from this ’employment boom’?
Employment is booming! Yet jobs are still hard to get…?
ABC posted an article this morning commenting on how the current employment boom is bypassing entry level job seekers.
54,000 new full time jobs have been created in the past month, but the report highlights how “the battle for entry level jobs is fierce and growing”.
This means that only those who shine through the recruitment process manage to land those jobs – so how do you shine?
How can you stand out in the recruitment process?
On average, 4.8 people apply for every entry level job posted, so you really need to stand out to be even considered for the job.
With so many different important aspects to consider in how you present in a job search, it is so easy to miss one. Your resume, your tone of voice, your past experience, your attire and your social media profiles are all valuable factors that need considering when you’re looking for work.
At MAS, we’ve trained our team to identify all o these essential factors to consider to help people like you into employment!

MAS Career Success Story!
Bashir is a mature age apprentice who recently completed his Pre-Apprenticeship at RMIT.
Simon Nashed and Steve Roberts got to support Bashir at the RMIT City Campus. We soon saw the enthusiasm and passion Bashir had for wanting to get into a mature aged electrical apprenticeship.
We could see the potential Bashir presented and so proudly supported him to further develop his resume and interview skills; which allowed the employer to see his skills!
Through his hard work, and the support we provided him, Bashir was signed up into his dream job!
Our team members Simon Nashed and Helen West attended Bashir’s sign up; and they’re just as excited as Bashir is about getting started in his Electrical apprenticeship!
