About Me
Building a new office block

We have a big site at work but after the company expanded we were running very short on office space. Most of our accounts team was in a demountable office and they were really hot in summer and cold in winter. It was so much better for the whole team once we got the new office block built on site. This blog talks about the process of building a new office block, including the design and construction of a block for your team. I hope it will be useful for anyone looking to build a new office block on their site.

Four Ways Extra Training and Certifications Can Improve Your CV

Troy Medina

If you work in the labour industry, there are all kinds of classes and courses you can take for different certifications. You can get certified in anything from working safely in enclosed spaces to driving a forklift to using heavy construction equipment. Some workers wait and have their employers pay for these classes, but if you are looking for temp work through a labour hire company, you may want to get some of these certifications on your own.

Here's how having certifications on your CV can help you land a job.

1. Fills Out Empty Resumes

When you don't have a lot of professional experience, it can be daunting to fill out a CV. However, if you have certifications, that makes it easier. Instead of creating a CV of your work experience, just create a skills-based CV.

With that approach, you basically list the skills on the top of the resume and follow them with your certifications and any additional details you have.

2. Increases Desirability

Labour hire companies screen lots of applications for the same post, and to get noticed, you may need to have something extra. Certifications can provide that. If a certification is the only difference between you and another candidate, the individual with the certification is likely to get the job.

3. Helps Get Past Entry-Level Posts

There are a lot of entry-level posts in the world of labour. Companies need people who are willing to do hard work that doesn't require a lot of special training. Eventually, however, as your career evolves, you may want the opportunity to jump into more challenging, skills-based, higher paying jobs.

Traditionally, you worked for the same company for years, and they promoted you over time. When you are focused on contract or freelance work through a hire company, however, the promotions are up to you. If you get certified, you essentially give yourself a promotion because you are trained for a greater variety of higher paying jobs.

4. Can Help With Immigration

If you are applying for a labour job from abroad, the labour hire company or the firm that ultimately hires you may be able to help with your visa, but in other cases, you may need to arrange your visa on your own. The Australian government offers work visas to construction and labour workers. However, if you bolster your resume with additional training and certification, you may end up qualifying for one of the skilled worker visas offered by the country. At any rate, it helps to open up your options.
