FAQs

  • How can I get my job application documents checked? (e.g. Resume, Cover Letter)

    Whilst we do not arrange individual appointments for checking your job application documents, we do offer an electronic checking /feedback service via CareerConnect .

    Once you’ve reviewed the relevant job application resources either hardcopy in our centre, or online you can up-load your documents for comprehensive feedback via the “Need Help?” tab in Word format.

    Please Note:  It may take up to 10 days for feedback (depending on demand) and documents that have not followed our recommendations may need to be re-submitted.

    Alternatively, you can receive verbal feedback on your job application documents in a quick 15 minute drop in session.
