part time job
It's rarely an easy task to find jobs. It is a competitive world and you have to outclass the rest. Having being a job seeker myself, I have found that it's important to compile a to-do list when you are on a mission to find a job. Although it's written according to Malaysia, the same concept pertains to any part of the world.

Here are a few simple items you must take note when searching for jobs:

Search in Jobs directory. It's the place where career and recruiting links are provided for you for your convenience. You could either apply directly via the sites or you could contact the HR departments with the hiring companies. There are several famous Malaysia job directories where you could count on such as Jobstreet, JobsDB Malaysia, Jen Jobs and Malaysia Central. You can look more in Google for terms for example Malaysia jobs directories, Job websites in Malaysia. job in Malaysia, Malaysia job

On the other hand, if you are interested to utilize the Malaysian Government, they too have a portal specially for vacancies in the government sector. It really is very simple to search for a job in the Government sector. Just Google for "vacancies in Malaysia government".

Next out there will be recruitment agencies. Some people looking for work do not really favour recruitment agencies because they need to pay a fee towards the agents. Sometimes it is a one-time flat fee and there are times where it really is based on a sliding scale on the length of time the employee is connected to the hiring company. However, out out desperation, people looking for work still end up opting to the choice. Some of the well-known recruitment agencies in Malaysia are Adecco Asia, ManPower Staffing, Kelly Services, JAC recruitment and PM Resources.

If you are a independent person and you also believe that you would want to try all this yourself, then the best solution is to manually find the job yourself. How? Well, you could physically go to the companies and submit your applications towards the Human Resources Department (but it's not very practical nowadays when you are rarely allowed to simply enter a business without any appointments).

Hence, electronic mail (e-mail) is your best chance. Just go to the company websites and go to "contact us" section. Usually they've career or hr emails for auction on their websites. Make sure to produce a presentable resume and email it in their mind. Wait for the good news! The rule of thumb is send Plenty of applications daily. Send no less than 50-70 applications daily.

Lastly, a conventional way of looking for jobs is still well worth the try. A lot of companies STILL advertise job vacancies about the newspaper. If you are actively needing jobs, purchase newspapers every day and dive into the jobs or classified sections.
