Have you ever checked the Personal Development Courses on Udemy?
My name is Binai Monicum and I studied masters of computer science at
The reason that I went to careers and development was to basically understand
whether my resume was in-line with what the Australian market demands.
Oh, it improved a lot. I mean I was absolutely clueless on what a resume should
look like here in Australia. To tell you the fact my resume was eight pages long.
They helped me understand how a resume is built for a particular kind of job.
That’s something that I really appreciated, making us self-dependent,
then you get the reassurance that whatever you have done is going
to be acceptable by the employer.
I had an interview offer, I’d passed the technical stage of the interview and was moving on
to the behavioural interview. I knew that this was a crucial one to get the job.
I had the interview the next day and I was kind of desperate.
Stephanie is one of the counsellors, she was really welcoming, she understood
what the problem I was facing and basically went through the entire behavioural
interview questions, how to frame particular answers for a particular type of question.
She basically built up my confidence. I knew all the answers. I just had to hear it
from someone else saying yeah, you’re all prepared, go … you’re going to do great.
That’s what I needed and basically landed the job.
