Finding a job is a tedious task. From updating your resume to searching for open vacancies and applying to them, the whole job-hunting process can be quite daunting. You need to be honest with yourself and carefully consider what kind of job will truly make you happy, because unfortunately, we often end up getting what at first seems like the “perfect role”, only to be disappointed and end up hating the job afterward.
However, with the introduction of job applications, the job-hunting process has become quite streamlined and convenient for both job seekers and recruiters.
Job seekers can now apply directly to the company for an open job vacancy and communicate with relevant recruiters that are posting the job position.
