How To Get An International Job

  1. 1. HOW TO GET AN INTERNATIONAL JOB HINTS & TIPS
  2. 2. Human Resources • Your first and possibly only contact with any company is via Human Resources (HR). • Most Human Resource (HR) offices are staffed by qualified skilled HR personnel who are not industry specific professionals and do not know much about it as their qualification is in “Human Resources”. • Their knowledge about the actual industry in particular may be limited.
  3. 3. Make It Easy • The most frustrating part of a recruiter’s day is poorly written, amateur resumes that lack information or make it hard to find the information they are looking for. • Make it easy for “Human Resources” to see you as a skilled professional by presenting yourself as such. • Half hearted attempts at securing employment do not cut it in today’s employment culture. With today’s technology submitting your resume has become extremely competitive. • Use technology to your advantage not your disadvantage. Human Resources are looking to employ human beings not specifications. Give them a reason to hire you!!!
  4. 4. Your Resume Would you attend an interview in your pyjamas? I hope the answer is no!!! So why do so many people feel it is “OK” to present a shoddy resume with outdated scant information? Your Resume should reflect you as a professional person so ensure you portray the right image from the start. a. Ensure your personal details are updated and accurate and that your name and surname is on the resume. b. Date your resume. c. Make sure your contact details are updated. Include a “SKYPE” contact. This is easy to set up by visiting www.skype.com it is free to set up, free to use and easy for employers to contact you. d. Layout must be clear and easy to read. Employers do not have time to search for your details. Label each section i.e. Education, Qualifications, Employment History etc. e. List your skills clearly, do not use abbreviations or acronyms (go to the extent of adding small photos. f. State whether you are currently employed - casual or full time. g. Clearly state your availability.
  5. 5. Visual Presentation • Visual presentation helps cut out the competition! • A short 3 or 4 minute video talking about yourself, your work and your family, is a fantastic introduction and employers like the personal touch. • Link to personal website if you have one. • Photos of you in the work place lends credibility.
  6. 6. Be Proactive! • Do not wait to be asked for documentation. Be pro-active and provide as much information as you can. Too much information is always better than not enough information. • The more a recruiter knows about you the easier it is for them to get you employment. • An employer will want to see you are organised.
  7. 7. Documentation • Prove that you have done some research and know what is expected of you, this gives a clear indication of how keen you are. • Documents required should include:i. ii. iii. iv. Copy of your passport Copies of all relevant qualifications Medical certificates It is likely that both a clear police check & medical will be required v. IELTS (if English is not your native tongue) vi. Proof that you have investigated regulations, licences & visa requirements regarding your employment.
