Question ID: 577063
Would someone be willing to do a cirriculum vitae and selection
criteria if I provide all the information? I need this by Monday and
would be willing to up the $ for a quick response. It is for a nursing
position in the Anaesthetics Department of an Australian Hospital. I
have two years nursing experience and can give you heaps of personal
info re duties performed as well as responses required for the
selection criteria. Thank you.

I may be interested in working on this but I need to understand what
you mean by "selection criteria". Thanks.

I suggest you compile all the pertinent information you have of
yourself into a Word Document and upload it to the net. You can then
post the url here for me to take a look and see what I can do for you.

Best regards,

Dear Tropical, 

I guess that I could have helped you here - I have a lot of experience
with this sort of stuff, working with recent graduates and unemployed
[that's the same where I live :-( ] as their lecturer.

I can also understand that you must be nervous and anxious to get this
job, but I would like to dissuade you from using Google Answers in
order to write your resume (that's the way they call it Down Under)
and the cover letter, of the following reasons:

(1) This is a public board. Answers can be later found on search
engines. If the potential employer Googles you or your CV later, they
will find this and might think that you're incapable of doing things
like that yourself. And not only this employer, also other potential
employers in the future might find this potentially embarrassing

(2) You know yourself better than anybody else. My students are
usually non-English speakers, who - among other things - need my help
when they write their English CVs and cover letters. I **ALWAYS** have
to sit with them, because no matter how bad their English (or job
seeking skills) might be, they know themselves better than I do.

(3) As a nurse yourself, you'd know the nomenclature better than
anyone else who's not an Aussie-nurse his/herself.

(4) Writing the resume and the cover letter is like an exercise
towards the interview itself. You already practice in using the right
terms, in presenting yourself, etc.
