Hello po mga kabayan!

Kamusta po ang job hunting? Baka naman meron kayong tips and tricks na makakatulong sa mga naghahanap pa at maghahanap pa for both offshore and onshore, please share. Maraming Salamat po! May question din po pala ako sa mga nag-aapply at natanggap na.

1. Lagi ba kayong gumagamit ng cover letter pag nag-aapply kahit di nirerequire ng job site like indeed, linkedin, or seek? Minsan wala kasing field para ma-upload un cover letter.

2. Un cover letter ba eh laging nakatailored dun sa isang company ina-applyan nyo o generic lang ginamit nyo. Paano kung recruitment agency lang pala un, kelangan pa talaga ng cover letter. at Kanino i-aaddress. Naghanap na kasi ako ng nghanap di makita kung sino nagpost nun work.

Nagtry ako na magpadala ng job hunt ngaun sana may makapansin ng application. hehehe.

Good luck po and God bless to all!

    Ayon po sa business insider Australia, the best time to look for a job in Australia is spring time (between August to early November)

    Pakibasa na lang po:

    Good luck!

    Try nyo rin research mga prospect nyo na companies directly sa website nila for career opportunities
    Mahaba haba process pag agents
    Yung iba kc hnd nagpost online, smaller companies cguro, pero mas may chance lalo na wala pa local experience.

    @seekerAU , yes always put cover letter not unless they specifically asked you not to. Make sure na tailor-made ang cover letter sa position na inaapplyan niyo. Sa mga job ads kasi nakalagay na dun iyong mga requirements nila, iyon ang dapat magreflect sa cover letter na ilalagay and sa cv.

    @seekerAU depende sa field, sa experience ko, after sending cv, within the week may tawag na or email, either rejection or phone interview (consultants).
    Pero last Friday, nagsend aq ng cv (direct), tuesday face to face interview with the director. Next week trial na. Paid work na rin xa.
    Preschool Teacher po ako.

Minsan wala kasing field para ma-upload un cover letter. - yes always include cover letter to introduce a bit of yourself, your current situation and background. Kung walang field to upload, make it as part of your CV, in this case I'll attach it in first page.

    2. Un cover letter ba eh laging nakatailored dun sa isang company ina-applyan nyo o generic lang ginamit nyo. Paano kung recruitment agency lang pala un, kelangan pa talaga ng cover letter. at Kanino i-aaddress. Naghanap na kasi ako ng nghanap di makita kung sino nagpost nun work. - yes tailor it to the job you're applying to, always address to the recruiter (direct employer or external agency) who posted the job.

    Nagtry ako na magpadala ng job hunt ngaun sana may makapansin ng application. hehehe.

    Good luck po and God bless to all!

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
