Job hunting has truly evolved through time. But two truths have remained the same; it has been and will always be both exciting and nerve racking. If you are in search for job placements in Malaysia, there are many job vacancies in KK and other major cities. To help you through your job hunting expedition here are some tips that you should keep in mind to accomplish your desired results:
- Job hunting is generally a mind game.
You have to be familiar with the demands and realities of the job market so you can also set your expectations accordingly. You may not get your desired result immediately, but stay focused and remain optimistic at all times.
- Trim down your job search based on the jobs that fit your qualification.
Organize your job hunting plan. Do not just go out and shoot applications blindly. Apply for positions that best fits your degree or experience. Also, bring all documents that might be required during the application and interview schedule.
- Come prepared.
To have a smooth and successful interview, collect all data related to the company you are applying to. Try to formulate a good way to relate your skills and experience to the requirements of the position you are applying for.
- First impressions last.
It is important for you to capture your interviewer’s interest in the first few minutes. This includes how you composed your cover letter and how impressive your resume looks. Your outlook and how you answered questions during the actual interview seals the deal. Emphasize on your strengths and highlight relevant experiences, because these pieces of information will create a better image for you.
- Keep in touch.
Keep track of all your applications and all the companies’ contact numbers and emails. Make sure that you do some follow –ups to get feedback from the companies you applied to. In some cases, you won’t be hired immediately, but they can keep you in their active file of applicants in case a new position opens up.
- Connect and network.
Establish a good professional network whether you are currently employed or looking for better options. Exchange business cards with people you meet and keep yourself open to exploring opportunities whether in the same industry or a new one. Sometimes, the tides take you to a better place just because you’re willing to give new things a try.
There are other things to keep in mind, but these easy and simple steps will definitely help you as you look for a new job or change careers. It is always best to be prepared and at your “A” game all the time. Happy job hunting!
