    Exclamation Job seekers - Take note.

    Hi everyone,

    This issue's on my mind for a while now. I need to voice out.


    IMHO, if you are interested in any job, I feel that you should approach the potential employer instead of the other way round.

    I've seen job seeker's replies in employer's thread:

    I want the job. Please email me at [email protected]
    or

    Can PM me more details?
    My point is: If you are interested in any job, I feel that it is more polite to approach the potential employer. Isn't that so?

    But of course, in any point of time you feel that the information posted by a potential employer is not clear, feel free to reply in the thread with your query. I believe they will be willing to react to the reply accordingly.

    Anyway, i saw your earlier job posting thread - I believe somebody has to voice out.
    Yeap, thanks.

    By contacting the potential employer with a description of yourself and your past experience, it shows that you have at least put-in some effort and seriously interested in the job. (well, that's what I had in my mind, anyway)

    oh yeah, so the employer will need to fill a clearer details especially age limit and necessary information that will help to speed up the process.

    And most important is: location.

    An employer has spoken!

    and most of those "unsincerece" employer just don't want to reveal their name or contact, they like use email to collect info or contact you. how can we reveal our personal info to something is hidden...
    post for discussion...
    I totally agree with you. It's so frustrating when they do not state what they want in an employee & expect us to call and be flatly rejected when they ask a few straightforward question.

    Why can't they just point out what they want in the Ad? Right?

There are really fake ads especially on the newspapers..one such example is a company by the name of Inf**** they are there to ad just for some publicity purposes or to show their rivals they are some big company..every now and then...they will show up in the newspapers haha. But i'm not very sure for the online ones.

    I think there needs to be an understanding that the employee does not owe you anything, not even a reply to inform you that you were not shortlisted for an interview.

    There are dozens and perhaps hundreds of individuals applying for the same job. Even if your resume is in tip-top shape and extorts the virtues and Unique Selling Propositions (USPs) of you as a brand, it does not necessarily mean that you'll get an interview. If there's no call, don't sweat it; just keep applying for the jobs in the field that you're looking at.

    Expecting a reply from an employer is like giving someone help out of goodwill and expecting a word of thanks from them. Call me insensitive but I would never make myself unhappy just because someone whom I helped decided not to acknowledge with a simple 'Thanks'. If they are gracious, I consider it a bonus, and if they're not, I don't gripe about it.

    Please understand that there is no full time interviewer except job agencies.

    in real life situation,

    employer has the right NOT to reply u no matter how many billion/zillion resume u sent.

    if the employer has to reply to every single resume, imagine the HR dept of certain big shot company has to reply duno how many billion letters everyday.
