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 the job using a classified and recruitment ad from the newspaper. Arming with a handwritten letter to the 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 wide range of online platform waiting for you.

I know its very competitive game for all job-seekers too. You just need to make yourself more visible across to 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 job opportunities and if there is no match, they just don't click apply. Well, be more pro-active by email direct your CV/Resume to the recruiter with 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 the 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 the online search to understand who you are. I remember telling the interview, my hobby is 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 sometime 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 in LinkedIn. Make sure you build up a good profile and it visible to recruiters in 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, maybe competitive for you. Why not try our some medium-sized platform?  The wider choices will increase your opportunity. is an online boutique recruitment place only for job-seekers.
