For the purposes of assessment only, students are required to search on-line and apply for a position related to their career interests. This position should be the type of position students would wish to apply for upon graduation. The position should be a realistic graduate position and can be located anywhere in the world. Students should also indicate in the introduction the name of the position, company and location where they are applying. Students will be required to indicate their interest in this position and undertake “mock” job-application, including a cover letter and resume, as they would if they were actually applying for the position.
This assignment aims to assist students with the graduation recruitment process. The assignment requires students to identify a position that is currently available, and that they would consider applying for upon graduation. Students should indicate where the position was found and attach the employment advertisement as an appendix to the assignment. Specifically, students are required to:
- Identify a current position (job) that they would like to apply for upon graduation (this should be a realistic graduate position)
- Within the introduction, provide a brief overview of the position, the organisation, and where the position was found.
- Outline your motivation and interest in applying for this position and why you would seek employment with this organisation
- Provide a simulated application for the position, including a cover letter, (which addresses the selection criteria) and a resume/CV, tailored to the specific position. Please follow the format suggested in class.

JOB APPLICATION ASSIGNMENT
The current position that I would like to apply for is the position of Customer Service Officer. I was informed of the position through an internet advert in the website; https://www.seek.com.au/job/36852532 (2018). A Customer Service Officer according to the job description by C3 Talent are “attending to new customer questions and complaints, redirecting calls, liaising with customers for their specific requests, ensure the investigation and procession of debit and credit cards, ensuring that complementary requests for services by the internal stakeholders are effectively addressed, report to assigned duties by the manager.”. I believe with the education background in tourism and hospitality management, I am the candidate best suited to assume this role. The advertised job position of customer service officer is mandated by the company to be part of a six-member team that will be mandated with the relations of the company with clients and the internal stakeholders. Moreover, the Customer Service Officer will be required to report to delegated duties by the manager. The job advert further enumerates the qualifications required by the company which I believe I competently meet. The person to be contacted on behalf of the C3 Talent in regards to any queries pertaining to the vacant job position is Rachael Dywer through the phone contact (07) 3040 4506 which is information presented in the job description……..
