Jane was awarded the degree Doctor of Education at the University of Wollongong (UOW) for her research into changing the way résumés are created and viewed.
Currently, Jane is a resident at the iAccelerate programme at UOW, developing an innovative recruitment tool that supports job seekers to create résumés that rightly and concisely reflect their experience and skills.
The tool was conceptualised in Jane’s thesis entitled, Reconceptualising a job interview through the use of a Digital Story Résumé: The experiences of creators and viewers.
In collaboration with software developers, Jane is at the minimum viable product (MVP) stage in the Australian Government’s Local Job Program. This stage will trial the tool prior to bringing it to market. Employment service providers and RTO’s will support job seekers using the tool in their challenge to enter the job market.
