How To Achieve A 5-STAR Profile
You have applied for many jobs, but no one is getting back to you. Wondering what might be the problem? Look no further, because we’re here to help!
Step 1: Make sure your basic information is filled up
(It’s called basic information for a reason!)
*A thing to note: Your email address cannot be changed after you enter it into the profile. Please email our friendly firstname.lastname@example.org to request for editing of your email.
Okay, so now that you’ve entered your basic details, it’s time to start building your profile. Employers are constantly on the lookout to get to know you better and how you are as an employee.
Step 2: Add a profile picture
Would you add someone with no profile picture on Facebook? It may be useful to add value to your profile with a professional photo of yourself. Some customer service sectors may require friendly personalities so do impress your employers with your million-dollar smile!
Step 3: Add your work experience and education background
To increase your chances of getting a job, it is important to list down relevant information such as your skills and previous work experiences (if any) on your profile page. Once you click ‘apply’ for a job, these information will be sent to the employers as well.
Scroll down your profile page, tap on the pink ‘Add Work Experience’ button and it will bring you to this page:
It’s pretty straightforward. Just be truthful. You can upload up to 5 work experiences and if you have more than that, (wow!) we advise that you pick out the most recent and relevant ones. Always remember that each step adds value to your profile and quality is still most important! Don’t forget to click ‘Save’ once you’re done.
Once you’re done with adding your work experience it’s time to head over and update your education background.
Select the pink button and you will be led to this page.
Don’t forget to save your changes!
Step 4: Add your Skills and Languages
Yeah! Done with updating your education? Does that bring you to the good ‘ol student days, ahh nostalgic times! Alright snap out of it, time to update your skills set so that employers can assess at a glance if you’re a great fit for the job!
Tap and you will go to your skills page, where you can select job skills depending on the type of industry.
Select the ones which are most relevant to you and the job you are applying for. You may select up to a maximum of 10 relevant skills.
Once you’ve selected your skills, click ‘Save’ on the top right corner of the page!
