Presenting Your Personal Details

Are your Personal Details Turning Employers/Recruiters Away?

Many jobseekers would agree that the ‘Personal Details’ section of a Resume is by far the easiest to write. You don’t even need to think about this part - right? Wrong! Your Personal Details alone can determine if your application is successful or rejected. For example, employers/recruiters have admitted to rejecting applications purely because they couldn’t pronounce the candidate’s name, or were put off by an email address. To ensure this doesn’t happen to you, let’s explore each element in more detail.

Your Name:

If you have a long and/or difficult first/last name, consider condensing it. It is perfectly fine to list a ‘preferred name’, as your Resume is not a legal document. This will ensure the reader is not intimidated and allows for easier communication if they decide to contact you. Position your name at the top, centre of your Resume (not in the header) in a conservative font and size (nothing above16).

Home Address:

Your home address can be an instant disqualifier if you are perceived to live ‘too far away’. Many Mining positions require the employee to Fly In Fly Out (FIFO) or Drive In Drive Out (DIDO) from the job location. Therefore, highlight your commitment to this travel arrangement in a Cover Letter. This is especially important for FIFO positions that are located in another state.

If the position requires you to drive to a location and you live more than a 45 minute to 1 hour drive away, it is best to only list the closest main suburb/city (ie Perth WA 6000) and not your actual street address. Some recruiters/employers will reject candidates if they live outside a set radius from the job location.

If you are contacted for a phone interview and asked where you live exactly, answer the question honestly. Demonstrate your ability and commitment to travelling the distance by stating, for example, that you have your own reliable vehicle and have been travelling an hour to and from work for the last 5 years.

Phone Number:

Your mobile number is the best number to list on your Resume. Set up a PROFESSIONAL message service if you don’t already have one. If you have a land line (avoid using work numbers), only list it if you are positive you will be available to answer the call. Ensure your contact number/s are correct.

Email Address:

Your email address must be professional and conservative. Your first and last name is the best option (try not to include your year of birth) and avoid using your work email. DO NOT include email addresses with nicknames or offensive undertones such as “sexydancingqueen@hotmail.com”.......if you don’t have a professional email, CREATE ONE!

Pictures & Biography

Remove personal pictures and/or detailed Biographies that include your Date of Birth, Marital Status, Religion, etc. This information is not relevant, nor required on a Resume.

The key is to keep your Personal Details simple and professional to ensure you are engaging the reader, rather than scaring them away!
