Welcome to my blog. How are you guys? I hope you doing well.
Today I want to share job hunting tips based on my experience. I hope this will give benefit to you on your job hunting. I will put it in few categories.
Step 1: Before apply the job
Prepare or update your resume. You can search online about the latest template/format.
As for me, I update my resume by go to this https://resume.io/ but this one need to pay. If you don’t have budget, you can search for free, I think there’s a lot. But, as for me, I want this pay version because I love the template.
Step 2: Sign up on job apply site
Second step, you can apply job at job sites now. There a lot and during my job seeking, I just apply at Monster, Jobstreet and Linkedin. So, sign up for all these sites.
Monster –> https://www.monster.com.my/
Jobstreet –> https://www.jobstreet.com.my/
Linkedin –> https://www.linkedin.com/ ( Subscribe for Premium) and I mostly use this.
Step 3: Apply for the job
Once you already sign up on all the job seeking site, you will need to fill in for profile and upload your resume. So, please do that and upload your resume. If you don’t know how to make your profile, you can always search because I’m not sure how to share the details with you since everyone has their own work experience.
Step 4: Interview Preparation
Then, the “menakutkan” stage is here! The interview! I always feel nervous whenever there’s an interview I attended. But, as time goes by, I’m not that nervous because I learned from my experience. So, its okay to feel nervous. For this part, I divide into 2 part as below,
Part 1: Interview Environment
