With the stiff competition these days, job hunting is certainly not an easy task, regardless how educated and experienced you may be.
There are just too many job seekers in the market these days, making it equally difficult for employers to make the right pick.
In July 2008, the Statistic Department revealed there were about 500,000 unemployed people in the country at the time.
Having to compete with this number of job seekers is certainly no easy task.
Considering this, what would be the best way for an employer to notice you among the thousands?
Well, perhaps we could learn a thing or two from this UiTM graduate who seemed to be able to press all the right buttons to get noticed.
Azmil Hakim's catchy headline on professional networking website, LinkedIn to get the attention of employers recently went viral.
While many LinkedIn users looking for jobs would probably say 'Looking for opportunities' or something along that line, this guy simply wrote 'Hi! Can I submit my CV to you?'.
Guess his approach was something new and creative, which many netizens praised as a direct approach to get noticed by employers.
His post now has over 15,000 likes and more than 800 comments from professional recruiters and also netizens impressed with his confidence.
His creativity certainly paid off with numerous employers sending him direct messages and emails to offer him a job.
Here are some of the comments:
Amazing, who would have thought a simple heading like that would work wonders?
Why didn't anyone think of this before?
