Landing your dream job can seem impossible at times. How to get your foot in the door for your first role can seem daunting and there seems to be 100 steps to get there.

In such a tough job market, standing out is essential to even make it into a company’s shortlist. Our panellists come from a variety of diverse industries particularly with experience in recruitment in the public and private sectors of South Australia.
