You are a practical source of information, encouragement and constructive suggestions.

Young people can use Job Jumpstart by themselves or you can use the website to find resources and information to support their job search.

On the Job Jumpstart Toolbox page you will find fact sheets, tips sheets and workbooks. The resources cover six areas:

  1. Job search strategy
  2. Applying for jobs
  3. Knowing about jobs and employers (labour market demand)
  4. Knowing what you want and can offer (labour market supply)
  5. Networking and personal presentation
  6. Work experience.

As they work through the Job Jumpstart resources, young people will develop and apply practical work-related employability skills in communication, planning and organising and self-management.

Job Jumpstart Résumé Quiz - New!

The Job Jumpstart Résumé Quiz is an engaging, fun and easy-to-use learning tool that aims to educate job seekers on how to draft and tailor a résumé to a specific job. 

This tool asks users to help one of our virtual job seekers to tailor their résumé to a job they want. The tool includes prompts and hints to help users build a résumé that matches the job seeker's skills and experience to the needs of the employer.

We'd love your feedback on the quiz and how we can improve the tool. The quiz takes around 10 minutes to complete.
