6 Tips For Job Seeker in Malaysia




The recent news update from economist report predicted for gloomy prospects for job-seeker next year. For job-seeker, this news does not sounds encouraging at all. Don't feel very down easily. There is always an opportunity waiting for you. It is a matter of time for good luck to reach your side. You just need to have faith and keep on trying. 

Those days, I remember applying for a job using a classified and recruitment ad from the newspaper. Arming with a handwritten letter to typing the letter out.No mobile phone for people to contact me directly. Waiting next to a fixed-line phone is a routine for me before getting hired. That was during those eras. I have gone through that to apply for a job. People now are very lucky. We have WWW for us to search for a job. Many ways and a wide range of online platforms waiting for you.

I know it's a very competitive game for all job-seekers too. You just need to make yourself more visible across the relevant online platform to get a higher chance of securing your dream job.

6 tips for online job seekers :


1. Be more pro-active 


Some candidates just search for job opportunities and if there is no match, they just don't click apply. Well, be more proactive by email direct your CV/Resume to the recruiter with a cover letter and write to them sincerely. Do not write 'half-heartedly' such as " I am looking for a job" the attached your email. No effort from you at all and you expect a miracle? Dreams on!
I remember getting an opportunity from a recruiter who called me out of the blue for a job opportunity which I don't even apply. 

2. Avoid Scammer


You must aware that the employer pays the recruiter to find the right person for the role. Some scammer requested some payment for a background and qualification check. Nonsense! There is no such thing! No matter how great opportunities they have promised you, avoid this kind of so-called 'scammer' by all means. Many other opportunities are waiting for you. It should cost you anything to apply for a job.

3. Clean up your online visibility


Ensure your online presence appears as the best to your prospective future employers. Nowadays, most employers are online savvy. They will do an online search to understand who you are. I remember telling the interview, my hobby is an online writing and sometimes did some product review gigs for fun. Nothing bad for being a blogger as long as you present yourself well online and offline. Your online image may sometimes contrast with your job but all this can be explained carefully. To me as long as your online image doesn't affect your work, it is alright!

4. Build up Linkedin Network


Most people neglected LinkedIn when it comes to job searching. Many opportunities are waiting for you if you build up good networking on LinkedIn. Make sure you build up a good profile and it is visible to recruiters on LinkedIn too.

5. Protect your Personal Confidential information


Some people think they have added in all information in the resume. Please avoid sharing unnecessary information such as bank account, ic number, physical address in your resume. We don't know how to secure the recruiters' process of our personal data. All this will only be required once you get the interview.

6. Widen your search


Don't bank in with only one platform. The most famous online job platform may be competitive for you. Why not try some medium-sized platform?  The wider choices will increase your opportunity.
