GAP Ready "Skills Passport"

The Get GAP Ready program also gives you access to a "Skills Passport" which acts like a digital wallet containing all your important information.  You can save bank details, your tax file number, skills training certificates and much more – making applying for jobs even easier!

Get GAP Ready - Too Easy

We’ve also simplified how you provide confidential information to future employers through a password protected 2-way authentication process.

Sounds complicated?

It is for us.  For you, it’s just too easy.

How it works

Get GAP Rready lozenge.png

Before you start looking, make sure you know how to look after yourself, stay safe and impress potential employers.

 

Subscribe & you’ll become a member for 12 months for only $25 (one-time fee), giving you exclusive access to the online GAP Ready Card, which helps with employability skills across all industries.

 

We’ll help you pull together employment information into your private & secure Skills Passport. You can then send encrypted files directly to employers so applying for work is easier.

 

When you apply for a job, you can easily email your job application and resume.

When you get the job, you can request a Letter of Offer from your employer (this has terms of employment, helps with any border crossings and keeps your employer happy!).

You can send your Job Start Kit to your new employer on the 1st day of work, so they have everything needed to get you started.

 

When you change jobs or need help along the way, GAP Ready is here 24/7. Just update your online resume and apply for another job!

 

Easy!
