A global study by Jobvite found that 92% of recruiters screen candidates’ social media profile before offering them a job. The majority – 87% – of 'snooping' is done on LinkedIn, but Facebook (43%) and Twitter (22%) are increasingly being used to find the right fit.
Applying for a government job is no easy task. With every application there is a challenging selection criteria to meet and most of the time you need to apply online - adding each answer one-by-one - along with your impressive resume and cover letter...as you know this can be a job in itself!
How do I know this? Because I've applied for many government jobs during my career (and got the jobs) in all levels of government and because i've come from that industry and worked with HR on recruitment campaigns, I know what hiring managers want to see on your application and how to make your application standout.
Whether you've never worked in government or have and want to get back in, or are applying for an internal role, I can help you. I work with job seekers 1:1 and with managers who want to support their teams with applying for jobs internally.
