Do you work for a cool company in Australia? Maybe you run HR at one? Now's your chance to get the recognition you deserve!
JobAdvisor just launched its 3rd annual Coolest Companies Competition - entries are open today! There are loads of lists when searching for the best companies to work for in Australia. JobAdvisor, part of the Search Party family, is doing something different to find Australia's Coolest Companies that have an awesome story to tell.
Last year we kicked off the search by opening entries for the Coolest Companies in Tech and for Women. You can read all about the finalists and winning companies on News.com.au. This year there are even more categories and we'll be on the hunt for Coolest Companies in Tech, Finance, for Diversity and for Small Businesses.
Applying for a new job is a competitive business. Most of the other applicants are at the same skill and experience standard as you, so how can you stand out? The first step is to create an eye-catching resume. In this digital age when job openings receive hundreds of applications, the challenge is to reflect the qualities that set you apart in person, on paper. Recruiters really spend anywhere from just 6 seconds to a few minutes scanning your application, then it ends up in the ‘yes’ or rejection pile. Just like that. This means that even with a concise, well-formatted application you still have only a short space of time to make an impression. Read on to find out how to construct your application for the best chance at receiving that all-important callback.
Working from home can be a fantastic experience. It offers the opportunity to access true comfort, creativity, and efficiency in the workplace, without ever having to change out of your pyjamas (unless you have a meeting of course). Unfortunately, if you fail to organise your home office space effectively, or make it too casual, then you could miss out on the productivity that’s so often associated with remote working.
In this brave new technologically fuelled world, the role of a full-stack developer has evolved into something quite extraordinary. Originally when asked to research this role for our “When I Grow Up” series, my knowledge barely skimmed the surface of the full scope and spec of a full-stacker.
In this fast evolving digital era, jobseekers must be vigilant when building a resume, especially when it coincides with having a visible online presence.

We've outlined the Five Commandments to follow as a rule of thumb when job hunting in the digital age.

As the internet has grown, more and more companies have built better experiences to improve customer engagement and gain competitive advantage. As a designer, product person or developer you've probably heard of user experience (UX) and are already doing some UX whether you know it or not. For those new to UX, you're thinking how do UX Designers think? How do they go from an initial challenge to a user friendly solution? How can I apply UX to my own projects?
Hiring the right people for your team is hard work, but selecting a leader? At times, it can seem an impossible task. When it comes to recruiting for management roles there are particular qualities and experiences that should be on every interviewer’s checklist. A management position, no matter the business or industry, requires individuals that can think on the spot, devise innovative solutions and juggle a multitude of responsibilities. All at the same time. A natural drive, emotional intelligence and genuine passion for the work are amongst some of the leading attributes that signpost your next great management hire!
That's right folks, JobAdvisor will shortly be launching in the UK! Here at JobAdvisor HQ, we are all super excited to celebrate the next leg of our global journey. Please tell your friends overseas - we'd really appreciate your support to help us grow to help more businesses build better brands.
It’s Monday morning and as you pull the sheets to one side, swing one heavy leg out of the bed closely followed by the other, wipe the sleep from your eyes and drag yourself into the shower to start another day in a job you don’t enjoy, working for people you don’t like. Ask yourself is there something else I would rather be doing, or is there somewhere else you’d rather be doing it?
