How to reach the job market with a long arm? ---Job Agencies Agents can help employers and employees to concentrate on what they do best Agencies have experts with employment process For job seekers, to find one agent is like to find many job opportunities CHINALINK AUSTRALIA is employment “middleman” or agent
Where do you begin? Self-Assessment To many recent college graduates, the most difficult part of finding a job does not involve formatting resumes, networking, and answering interview questions. Instead, these tasks are much easier compared to the exercise of figuring out what jobs to apply for in the first place.
Continued A common mistake is a tendency to assess the job market; pinpoint where the plentiful, lucrative jobs are; and then, without a second thought, direct their energies toward entering that field. The problem with that approach, however, is that a career in the hottest, trendiest field might be a terrible match for the jobseeker
Continued Accept that the self-assessment process is not instantaneous one year is the average period people need to identify careers that match their personalities and desires. It's important not to get frustrated and to be patient! Decide what you want out of your job. Ask yourself what it is about a job. Be sure to be honest with yourself
Continued Define Your skill The first step is NOT to think of yourself in terms of your specific degree. Employers often do not hire graduate because of their specific degrees - instead they use job applicants' skills as criteria for filling positions. So, instead of asking, "What are good jobs for IT majors?" ask, "What are my passions and strengths? What skills do I have? What do I want to be doing in my job ?" Search: Now and only now you start your real search for jobs and opportunities !.
Your Approach When communicating, need to be professional and formal – especially in e-mails (no all lower cases) Have a pleasant image Talk slowly to make sure everyone understands.
