Where do locals need help?
Poor self-representation is a major issue. Maybe it is the lack of confidence. So far, I have been helping with social media setup, creating small websites, and simple things such as connecting Instagram and Facebook. But as of late we have gotten into helping locals with their personal needs.
There are a few key points to touch upon. Self-representation and branding. Now I am not talking about becoming a celebrity. I am not one to brand you and suddenly you become InstaFamous.
Nope, this is far simpler than that, but you will walk away knowing how others see you. So many times, I have seen very qualified individuals, miss out on great opportunities. All because their resume was extremely poor.
Search for a chef.
In one case a very qualified individual had such a poor resume that it was barely worth looking at. Yet if you did look, as we did, their qualifications were amazing.
What people need to understand is the age-old saying… You only get one chance to make a first impression. Since Bali and businesses are re-opening, expanding, and restructuring, put your best foot forward.
This not only includes information about yourself but the footprints you leave along the way. Your social media and your LinkedIn professional account say a lot about you.
We see so many locals in desperate search of work. Yet when they are asked to attend an interview, they want to interview on a schedule that fits their time and date.
This attitude is wrong. If you are seeking a personal assistant position, your job is to tend to and assist your future boss. This does not mean that you work 24/7. This means you need to tend to and assist your boss.
If your priority is heading out with your friends or family when you are in search of a job, what will your priorities be when you are hired? Once more, you are not a slave to your job. Yet if you are in search of one, show that you want this position.
Often when you are working, you have several ways of communicating. You put your email on the resume and your phone number as a way for companies to contact you. More often than not, when we email individuals, they do not reply to emails.
This means they are either not checking or do not care about the jobs they have applied for. Once more, your personal behavior is coming through and this reflects on the position you applied for.
At work, you are expected to communicate. This communication could be in person, via email, phone calls, or messages.
When applying for a job, make sure you tick off all the boxes and that lines of communication are open. Ultimately, I would instead hire a competent eager individual than a well-educated careless one.
