A thing I’ve noticed about the current generation is the extreme talent that is on display anywhere you look. Unfortunately that talent is often coupled with an inability to effectively convey and apply that talent.
I’ve seen scholarship students who don’t know how to make an impressive CV. Aces in universities not getting the job because of a lack of interview skills. Most students only realize the importance of knowing how to present yourself properly and be deemed an attractive candidate too late, and that too only by experience.
That’s why I’ll highlight a venture by Mobilink today that might help you get on the right track. Mobilink Careers is a blog started by Mobilink, which aims to be a place where you can get career advice, tips on bettering your professional life and interview skills etc.
The blog itself is well designed and informative. Posts include success stories, interviews with various Mobilink employees and different workshops that Mobilink holds.
A post which caught my eye and one you should definitely check out is the “CV checklist” post. It should be of relevance to many people since most universities are off and others will be soon. Summer time is of prime importance to anyone who takes their career seriously since a good internship augments your degree and can better your chances of getting a specific job.
The post consists of a presentation that offers tips on how the CV should look like, its vital components etc. The post is located at:
The blog itself is located at: http://careerblog.mobilinkgsm.com/
This venture wouldn’t be as effective if it were confined to the blog, good thing is they can be found at Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube. The discussions at LinkedIn are most informative and deal with answering your questions and how to improve your interview skills etc.
Personally, I found them more useful than the blog partly because the blog seems to be updated 3-4 times a month with new posts, so do check it out.
