Resume tips

Keep it short
We are big fans of short resumes. Make sure to include all relevant information but keep it compact. If you think more detailed information adds value, please include it as a separate document in the same window where you added your resume (and cover letter).

Keep it relevant
Depending on the role you are applying for, make sure that the information is relevant. Use the job description to determine what's relevant and what’s not. We’re curious to learn about recent and relevant experience, so that means there’s no need to include your student part-time job in a restaurant, or your school projects if you are now a professional.

We assume that everyone can work with Microsoft Office so there’s no need to put your Word and Excel skills in your resume. Please do include the programming languages with which you are familiar. For students and graduates, if you include a level of proficiency, compare yourself to professionals and not fellow students. If we read 'very good' in C++, you will set the bar quite high for yourself.

Cover letter
If you choose to include a cover letter, make sure to focus on your motivation. We can read about your experience in your resume so there is no need to list that again. Think about questions we might ask about your background, and tell us why you’d be a good fit for the role and IMC. We’d prefer no cover letter to a generic one. However, please note: a cover letter is mandatory for intern and graduate roles in our Sydney office.

Spell check
You want to make a great first impression so make sure your resume is written in good English and there are no spelling mistakes.
