The AMA Victoria one-on-one careers consultations help doctors and medical students explore and work on their careers in three ways:

Career Assessment, Personal Career Planning and Life beyond Medicine | A career assessment allows you to reflect and review your professional career so far, while a career plan will help you to create and plan your portfolio, review career pathways and assess career options. “Life beyond medicine” tackles areas such as planning for retirement, scaling back and career transition.

Resume Development | We focus on building a targeted resume that effectively promotes and markets your professional talents, with the aim of creating interest in your profile and securing interviews. We can work with an existing resume format or support you in developing a new resume. In the session we will review existing content, create new content and ensure that the document is ready and targeted to your chosen role and/or career pathway. A resume template and resume samples will be provided.

Interview Techniques| Tailored to your needs, the focus will be on areas such as effective communication and presentation tips, talking about yourself to create interest, questions to expect, responding to interview questions and preparing for an interview
