We are a purpose-led business providing a competitive edge for job applicants. Our vision is to revolutionise the use of the traditional STAR formula in writing job applications to ensure you stand out from the crowd and secure a job you love. Backed by over 20 years of management and leadership roles in private and public sectors, The Job Architects bring combined expertise, design thinking and framework development to ensure you get the job you want. In consultation with you, we provide impactful targeted and tailored industry-specific written content which aims to make sense of your transferrable and directly relatable skills.
We know what it takes to land a competitive role or secure that well-earned promotion. We also know how complicated and daunting the process can be, especially if you are unsure how to stand out. The team at The Job Architects have experience and a proven track record. We’ve shortlisted hundreds of applications and been on too many to count interview panels. What we know is that every application needs a competitive edge to make the cut. The STAR methodology is considered ‘best practice’ in responding to selection criteria and applications. We are skilled in this format and are very good at it. We add something extra which sets us apart from other resume writers. We work with clients to ensure their application shines and stands above others with our approach and customised strategy in identifying and highlighting skills and experience.
Once you have been invited to interview, we know the competition doesn’t stop there and that sometimes nerves can get in the way. Body language, eye contact, voice control, video interviews and the struggles with imposter syndrome are just a few of the things that can hold you back. We provide targeted interview coaching and a practice interview for the role you have applied bringing you one step closer to getting that job offer.
Facilitated Workshops In addition to our writing services, we run facilitated workshops for organisations and businesses in both the public and private sectors. We walk through our approach and framework, with examples (the good, the bad, and the ugly) of written applications.
We believe that providing confidence and clarity eliminates the guesswork and helps build organisational capability and capacity to improve individual and team performance. We know that upskilling your team members helps with internal promotions and our framework supports evidence based annual performance discussions.
