What employers want

Employers are looking for the specific combination of qualifications, skills and experience needed by their business. However, there are several things employers commonly look for:

  • Education and training: work in Australia is becoming more skilled, and around 90 per cent of new jobs in the future will require a Vocational Education and Training (VET) or university qualification.
  • Employability skills: the top skills sought by employers are communication skills, teamwork, problem solving ability, organisational skills, and creativity and initiative.
  • Experience: workplace experience gives you a foot in the door, and contacts and referees. Options include work experience placements, part-time or casual jobs, temporary or contract jobs, apprenticeships or traineeships, internships, and volunteering.

Employers’ top three tips


1. You need an excellent résumé and job application that is short, gives examples and is free from spelling and grammatical errors.

2. Every job is unique, and your approach to each application should be tailored. Research the business and explain how your skills make you the right fit for that role.

3. Prepare for the interview by practicing interview questions, preparing some questions about the job and business, explain what skills you will bring to the job, and plan what you will wear.
