What is the correct length of my resume for a government application?

Regardless of the government sector, it's essential to tailor your resume to the specific job requirements and the culture of the organisation. This includes highlighting relevant skills and experience, using keywords from the job description, and aligning your accomplishments with the goals and priorities of the department or agency.

When writing resumes for specific government departments or agencies, we take a tailored approach to ensure that the resume is the right length and contains the necessary information to make a strong impression. We work closely with our clients to understand their career goals and the requirements of the position, allowing us to create a customised resume that effectively showcases their qualifications and maximises their chances of success.

Federal Government

Resumes for federal government positions typically range from 2 to 4 pages, depending on the level of the position and the amount of relevant experience the candidate has. For entry-level positions, a concise 2-page resume is usually sufficient, while more senior roles may require a more detailed 3 to 4-page resume to adequately cover the candidate's qualifications and achievements.

State Government

Resumes for state government positions can vary in length but generally fall between 2 to 4 pages. Similar to federal government resumes, entry-level roles may be shorter, while more senior positions may require a slightly longer resume to effectively showcase the candidate's skills and experience.

Local Government (Council)

Resumes for local government positions are typically 2-4 pages in length. These resumes should be concise and focused, highlighting the candidate's relevant skills and experience for the specific role within the council.

In Australia, we commonly use the term 'Resume' to describe a document outlining your employment history. Conversely, in the UK and Europe, the same document is often referred to as a ‘CV’ (Curriculum Vitae). If you're from the UK or Europe and job-seeking in Australia, this information is tailored for you!

Our professional CV writing service provides a comprehensive overview of an individual's career, including academic achievements, research, publications, and professional experiences. It is more detailed and tends to be used in academic or research-oriented fields. Contact our team for your free review and they will discuss with you whether you need our professional CV writing service.

At Government Resume we understand the significance of a well-crafted resume in your career journey. Our resume writing process is designed to be transparent, collaborative, and tailored to your unique professional story. Here's a step-by-step overview of how our process works:

1. Initial Consultation:

The process kicks off with an initial consultation, either over the phone or in-person, where we get to know you, your career goals, and gather essential information about your work experience, achievements, and skills.

2. Information Gathering:

Following the consultation, we work closely with you to gather comprehensive details. This includes your employment history, educational background, certifications, and any specific details relevant to your target industry or government role you are wanting to apply for.

3. Resume Crafting:

Our team of experienced resume writers, many of whom have backgrounds as HR professionals or industry experts, begins crafting your resume. We strategically highlight your strengths, achievements, and skills, ensuring the content is targeted to the specific job or industry you are pursuing.

4. Draft Review and Feedback:

Upon completion of the initial draft, we share it with you for review. This is a collaborative stage where you can provide feedback, and we make revisions as needed. Our goal is to ensure your complete satisfaction with the end result. We do not limit the number of revisions; you simply have a 1-month period from when we write your resume to let us know of any changes you would like.

5. Finalisation:

After incorporating your feedback and making necessary adjustments, we finalise your resume. The final product is delivered in both PDF and Word formats, providing you with full ownership and flexibility.

6. Ongoing Dialogue:

We value ongoing communication. Throughout the process, our team maintains an open dialogue to address any questions, concerns, or additional details that may arise. We're committed to ensuring your resume reflects your professional identity accurately.

7. Additional Services and Support:

In addition to resume writing, we offer complementary services such as cover letter creation, LinkedIn profile optimisation, and interview coaching. These optional services enhance your overall job application strategy.

"The STAR method, an acronym for Situation, Task, Action, and Result, is a valuable approach we use to construct compelling responses for behavioural or competency-based questions. It is particularly instrumental when we address the selection criteria for government applications.

Situation (S): Provide context by describing a specific situation or scenario related to the selection criteria outlined in a government job application.

Task (T): Clearly define the task or challenge presented in the selection criteria that you needed to address.

Action (A): Articulate the specific actions you took to meet the criteria, emphasising your skills, qualifications, and relevant experiences.

Result (R): Conclude with the positive outcome or results derived from your actions, showcasing the impact of your efforts on the specific criteria.

We utilise the STAR method in government applications ensuring that your responses are structured, detailed, and directly aligned with the criteria sought by government agencies. By employing this method, we effectively demonstrate your competencies and experiences, significantly enhancing your chances of success in the government job application process.

The type of cover letter we write will depend on the industry and job that you are applying for, if you are unsure what is required, please contact our team and email us the link to the advertised role. We can discuss the specific requirements with you.

ATS stands for "Applicant Tracking System." It is a software application used by employers and recruiters to manage and streamline the hiring process. ATS is designed to automate the recruitment process by sorting, scanning, and ranking job applications based on specific criteria.

Key functions of an ATS include:

Resume Parsing: ATS analyses and extracts information from resumes, converting them into a standardised format for easier analysis.

Keyword Matching: ATS scans resumes for keywords and phrases relevant to the job description, helping recruiters identify suitable candidates.

Application Screening: It automatically screens and filters applications based on predetermined criteria, such as qualifications, skills, and experience.

Resume Storage: ATS stores candidate information for future reference and analysis, creating a centralised database of applicants.
