Nowadays, with the technology advancement, newspaper is no longer the only media we refer to when we want to look for a new job. There are many job opportunities available through the internet. There are many websites which enable us to obtain the latest hiring news from different industries.
In order to grab great jobs with high salaries, you are advised to spend some time to go through the job advertisements carefully. There are FOUR key areas which you need to take note when you are going through the job advertisements:
Point No.1: The background of the potential employers
You must get the detailed information about the companies which are currently hiring. Knowing the background of the companies is important. Ask yourself honestly whether you have chosen the right industry. Check the corporate image and reputation of the companies.
Point No. 2: The positions offered
Are you applying for the right position? Do you really make good use of your academic qualification? You need to find out whether the positions offered require any specific performance or technical skill. If you don’t have such skill, you should not apply for the particular position. Honestly speaking, the percentage of being selected is zero.
Point No. 3: The job descriptions and the job responsibilities
What do you need to do at work? It is indeed important to go through the job search descriptions and job responsibilities stated on the advertisements carefully. By knowing these, you are able to estimate the possible challenges that you will face at the work place in the future.
Point No. 4: The job requirements
What are the conditions set by the potential employers? Most of the companies require the candidates to have certain years of working experience. If you are fresh graduates, you are advised not to waste your time looking for jobs which require 5 years working experience. Besides experience, you are reminded to find out whether having own transport is necessary. Do you need to travel overseas? Find out all the requirements first before you submit your job application.
Why are there so many unemployed graduates and job seekers in the market right now? Sometimes, we should not blame the current economy situation. We have to ask ourselves honestly whether we really act smart in searching for jobs. We must spend more time reading the job advertisements carefully before we submit our curricular vitae. Don’t do things in a rush.
