I want to share about my job hunt from last week ago 5 weekdays I send a lot of resume in online job advertisement, in total I have received 11 interviews, 1 last Friday, 8 this week including tomorrow, 1 next Monday and 1 on Tuesday like from recruitment agency, next week got upcoming one also from recruitment agency but pending confirmation as they given me a date time got crash with another appointment.
In Summary out of 11 interviews appointment confirmed, I have 1 interview which is from job agency. Last 3 months ago, at least hit some recruitment agency, but some recruitment agency may ask you come to their office sign a application form stated like if you resign in 3 or 6 months need to pay agency a month of pay for service fee. This month I rested for a week in first week then prepare resume started to mass send online job advertisement, but this time a lot lesser to recruitment agency more on company direct job posting instead. This whole week and last weekend I stop send out my resume to prevent my call too flooded for job inquiry so I wait till next week start see how if I need to send mass resume online job advertisement again unless now I accepted a job offer.
So quite a big improvement as no need send my resume much to recruitment agency still can get a lot of job interview, provided there are some condition need to follow like resume must be very clear, detailed, not messy and duplicated information and also expected pay cannot jack up too much from last drawn also need to indicate in some others like clear passport photo for example.
That bring me to a point why I send you this e-mail. There is one job recruitment agency I caught her on hand due to my recently personal data protection precaution I take. This job recruitment agency called me my first mobile number, had send e-mail to confirmed appointment and stated near appointment date time she will contact me to prep through, so I replied her e-mail to confirmed appointment again. I do some search which I did not submit my resume through online job advertisement to this job recruitment agency at all only this month. So she called a day before, asking me if I free to prep before going for job interview, I told her 2pm onward can call me. So I waited at 830pm she called me using a different mobile number which is not in her e-mail signature stated to my second mobile number, asking me can talk, I told her make it quick, she ask my pro and con. So I told her this is not right and hang up the phone immediately. I send her e-mail immediately after I end her call asking I did not receive the JD, asked where do you see my resume to know this number, how come called using different number also. She replied my e-mail she found it from monster my resume which donkey years I never use monster online job advertisement web site to deposit my resume and make it public searchable. She also said the phone number talk time value run out did not top up so use another phone number to call me instead. I replied her e mail please delete all my resume and no need to find any more job from me due to personal data protection act.
I going to share what is good business practices on sales deal. This will exclude small simple business self employed like small food stall in hawker for example. Basically the sales should be working as a team, not as individual like one person more sales more commission and other less sales less commission earned. Maybe the organization can make sales team basic pay a bit less from other team or department or the same, but will enjoy commission equally just like round robin operation that kind. The sales team will have fair share of some difficult and easy client to get business deal in instead of people says those commission earn a lot than others due to having too many easy client causing it. Of course the organization will have to set a minimum sales target if not people come in to work after 3 months will have a mindset since first days onward that just get zero do nothing at work. Another example will be people sell laptop for S$100 as many as possible just to earn a bit of profit and or to hit sales target, but client use a few days become faulty does not work at all so other department or team will handle it cannot fix will cause the whole organization to suffer.
Hope my sharing is helpful to you and your team as well as to the nation. No action is required from you and your team. No law enforcement needed to set unless your team thinks is needed especially private organization have its way of running business as some organization will suffer or gain even they follow my suggestion or not. Your team can raise any small or big meeting to discuss if there is a need or issue going on now or later.
