Challenge 1 – A Stock-Take Of Your Current Skills

Hello campers and welcome to your first challenge!  Our very first challenge is a super simple one. In it we look back at our past jobs (yep, even the time you flipped burgers at McDonalds) to work out your transferrable skills. Transferrable skills are the ones you can take with you to the next job even if it’s in a totally different industry.  Let’s use McDonalds as an example:

Ok, so let’s say your first job out of school was at McDonalds. You served customers, processed payments, made burgers and that was about all. Now let’s say you are looking at a job as a Bank Teller next. Some of the skills you learnt at McDonalds that transfer across might include: cash handling, customer service, conflict resolution etc.

Ok, now you know what you are looking for create a spreadsheet on excel or draw two columns on a piece of paper and list every job you have ever held in the first column. In the second column, write down all the skills you learnt doing that job that would transfer across to the next one.

To Recap:

Your challenge is to identify your key skills based on previous employment history

Step One: Create two columns on a spreadsheet or piece of paper

Step Two: List every job you have ever done

Step Three: List the skills you learnt at each job

Step Four: You should probably create a sub folder on your computer or get a vanilla folder if you are doing the activities manually to keep all your challenges in – because you are going to need this information for some of our resume modules later on.

Here is what some of my past clients have said about our service copied and pasted direct from email:


“Hi Nicole
I’ve read through your version of my resume and I have to say…….Wow Congratulations, it’s fantastic!!! You have captured me to a tee. I’m so pleased with the results, and all without us having interviewed face to face. I really can’t thank you enough for what you have achieved in such a tight time frame with limited information and if you were here right now I’d be throwing you a hug and  paying for drinks. . So thank you once again for your professionalism and effort on my behalf. I’ll buy you a drink next time I’m in Queensland 😃😃 As always Kind Regards, Damian


Good Morning Nicole,

I was meant to email you last week but I’ve just been so busy, my partner and I just moved house and there’s been so much to do and organise. 

I just wanted to email you to say thank you! What you’ve done is amazing and honestly just blew me away. I didn’t even know resumes could be written professionally until I was told by a friend and had honestly struggled to write my own, it was beginning to stress me out! When I opened up my resume and CL I read it through so many times, it just sounded so amazing and I thought to myself this THIS is a resume and cover letter! You had included things that I hadn’t even thought of and I do those tasks everyday at the restaurant. I’m so much more optimistic about applying for work now and I’m not afraid that I’m sending something dismal and unworthy through as my resume.

Thank you thank you thank you again!!

Hope you have a lovely week and I will definitely be coming back to you for any resume/cover letter writing in the future

Warmest Regards

Hi Nicole,

Thank you for the resume. It looks amazing! To be honest I hadn’t expected it would look this good. Thankyou again and I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking.

Quick question, is it too late to get the $49 cover letter also?
