I can’t the remember the last time I had to apply for a job. I mean like seriously. These days I get job offers over meals, at events, during parties. I haven’t updated my resume in years.
But it’s always good to keep an eye out for opportunities no? Other than these upfront offers, I thought it would good if I go back to the drawing board & do the old- school job searching practice of using jobs sites; just for kicks, to see if there’s anything out there that I may have missed; or perhaps I’ll come across an interesting job that may an entirely different genre from what I’m currently doing.
I think I could do with a change… *confused*
Anyhow, one of the job sites that caught my interest is this one – http://www.jobscentral.com.my.
Curious, I surfed around; which was relatively pain-free, since the site’s pretty well self-exemplary.
Then I clicked on this tab – “Resources” – it says..
“Hmm.. what kind of resources”.. I wondered…
Sigh, filling up the form is a pain. That’s one of the reasons I don’t use these job portals. I find them time consuming.
In any case, once done the site will have your records & you’ll just have to update it when.. ermm.. you have any updates? 😉
It’s FREE if you’re registered with JobsCentral (http://www.jobscentral.com.my). And it’s simple. Thank God!
A straightforward list of 20 question with multiple answers with choice of 1- 4 for each.
OMG. Tried as I might to be as honest as possible, I had a hard time deciding between the choices of 1- 4 for each question.
Still, it was quite fun taking the “quiz” & I submitted my answer with bated breath. Come on, tell me something! 😉
But I would say that the results were creepily spot on!
Ok, I can’t quite share the full results here but I would recommend anyone to sign up with JobsCentral & get their personality profiling done. Amazing stuff.. seriously.
I know what I am, but reading it in black & white.. well, I’m speechless.
I realized too, that there are certain areas of improvement required personally for myself. Hhmm..
Also, it’s not just words. The report comes with neat analytical figures & a visually self exemplary graph!
Note: I have erased a pretty big portion of the coloured area. Haha, if you want to see how it actually works, sign up for an account here – http://www.jobscentral.com.my & get started on your own profiling!
This little profiling kind of got me thinking of my future undertakings. I do not take such prognostic word for word & I have personally changed so much over the years that I know for sure I could be an entirely different person next year or so if I wish to change.
But for now, yes, some parts are definitely spot -on.
Oh, further surfing around revealed an interesting contest happening here. JobsCentral has a mascot called Super Teddy!
