CQUniversity Australia via FutureLearn

Overview

What are work-ready skills and why do you need them?

This online short course is designed to provide you with work-ready skills including interpreting and responding to job advertisements and selection criteria, writing application letters and resumes and developing interview skills for job seekers.

It will provide real-world examples of advertised positions, response criteria to address, templates for preparing for job interviews and tips to assist you to return to the workforce.

Learn how to write a resume and cover letter that stand out from the rest

Does new to the workforce tend to focus all their time and attention on creating a well written resume, but forget about the importance of cover letters and how they can increase the possibilities of being selected for an interview.

A cover letter is the perfect place to really tailor your skills to the role you are looking to apply to and show your passion and interest for the company you want to be part off. This shows first hand that you are willing to go the extra mile, even before you have been hired.

Gain the confidence to succeed in your interview and land the job you are dreaming off

Confidence is key… you have heard it million of times before, and the reason is because it’s true. The good news is that you don’t need to be naturally confident to impress your prospective employer! In this course you will uncover the key steps you need to take to mentally and physically prepare yourself to appear confident and ace your interview.

While this course is aimed at trainees, apprentices, graduates and school leavers looking to enter the workforce, it also applies to job seekers in the broader community looking to increase their confidence and success rate when applying for work.
