Career, Job... How do I get one or a new one?
"I just need a resume to job search, right?"
No. While a resume is definitely needed, there is more to searching effectively.
Whether you're a fresh graduate or a mid to senior career professional who wants to make a job transition, you will likely find the job search process to be a very stressful time.
Generally, it takes a combination of the effective skills, strategies, good opportunities and a bit of luck, to increase the likelihood of a good job match. However, anyone who has not regularly practised their job search skills will suffer when they use dated and ineffective job search techniques.
Some overseas trained professionals encounter difficulties as job strategies that worked in another country, may not transfer well to Singapore.
We help by giving jobseekers the useful cultural and social mindsets that fit Singapore workplaces. This increases the likelihood of better job matching, engagement and helps people develop and manage their own careers.
