kdg2 terfikir..
kenape cinta ni terlalu menyakitkan?
kadang-kadang tidak percaya kita dicintai..
kadang-kadang kita sendiri yang lemas dalam kasih sayang yang entah kekal nya sehingga bila..
kadang-kadang kita akan terasa tersisih..
adakan orang ketiga penyebabnya?
adakan pasangan kita penyebabnya?
datang dari diri sendiri segala permasalahan?
aku keliru dengan permainan dunia.
aku keliru dalam perasaan.
hendak butakan hati atau celikkan mata yang sedia terbuka?
hendak fikirkan masa depan yang entah apa yang perlu ditempuhi
fikirkan kebahagian depan mata dan butakan segalanya?
aku makin keliru..
ya rabbi engkau la segala-galanya,aku beserah..

cover letter for resume

Your cover letter tells an employer a lot about you, good or bad. Think of it as a sales pitch. It’s primary purpose is to show why your skills and background are a perfect match for the position for which you're applying. It is not the place to present all of your experience, that should already be showcased in your resume.
As your first opportunity to make a great impression, a well-written letter shows that you are serious about your job search. Highlight one or two of your skills or accomplishments that show that you are the right person for this position.

While there is no set format or template, here are some more tips for creating a letter that employers will read:

Keep it brief. Cover letters rarely need to be longer than one page. You can usually sum it up in about four paragraphs:

1. Introduce yourself and explain why you are writing
2. Lay out your key skills and accomplishments
3. Explain why you want to work for the company
4. Thank the reader, invite him/her to contact you and lay out your follow-up plans

Personalize. Avoid generic greetings such as "To Whom It May Concern" or "Dear Sir or Madam". Address your letter to a specific person, and make sure the spelling is correct.
Sell your skills. Don’t just rehash your resume. Highlight the skills that are most relevant. Illustrate how they relate to the position.

Clarity is key. Be very direct; write clearly and concisely. Don’t make the reader have to work to figure out why you’re writing or speculate at how your skills match the position.

Be proactive. State how you can be reached and give specific information about your plans for follow-up. Once you've said it, do it; follow through.

Review, review, review. Always take the time to review your letter. Double-check for typos; don’t rely on spell-check. If you have time, ask a friend or colleague to look it over as well. Make your changes and review again.

13 Tips to Writing the Right Resume

Here's a 13–step guide to constructing a professional resume that gets your foot in that all-important door.

  • Gather your materials.
    • Begin by putting everything down on paper--contact details, work history and accomplishments, academic background, seminars attended, honors received, skills and proficiencies, personal details, etc. Don't worry about organizing them at this point; just make sure you don't leave out anything major, substantial, or relevant.
    • Pay particular attention to dates and places--say, periods of employment--as mistakes in these areas may leave an impression of sloppiness, or worse, fudging on your part.

  • Start with your name and contact details.
    • Your contact information should come right at the top of the resume after your name for easy and convenient reference by the reader. Include all possible contact details: postal address, landline and mobile phone numbers, fax numbers, and e-mail address. The last one is particularly important, because in these tech-savvy times, an email address shows that you are, at the very least, computer literate.

  • State a job objective.
    • A well-developed job objective statement “can be a useful way of demonstrating yourself to be a focused individual,” says , an online job placement company. If you're responding to an advertisement, your job objective can be as simple as the position title (e.g., “Finance Manager”).
    • But if you're aiming to keep your options open for other positions within a broad range of expertise, you can write a more general description of the work and corporate environment you want to focus on (e.g., “To apply my extensive experience in finance and administration to senior management positions in a highly motivated, forward-looking multicultural company”). Beware of generic objectives such as “employment in a position commensurate to my qualifications” or “to secure a regular position.”

  • Write a brief summary of qualifications.
    • Cynthia Buiza, an HR and corporate communications officer at a Thailand-based NGO, says she appreciates resumes that provide upfront a concise summary of the applicant's qualifications.
    • number of years of professional experience
    • areas of expertise and career highlights (e.g., “at 26, youngest officer promoted to manager in bank history”)
    • unique skills and competencies (e.g., “part-time financials instructor at the SAP Academy”) other information underlining your particular qualifications for the job

  • Lead with your professional experience.
    • Unless you are a new graduate, you should begin the body of your resume with an outline of your employment history, starting with your most recent work. List down all the jobs you've had, the company names, dates of employment, titles and responsibilities.

  • Highlight concrete achievements.
    • When you describe your professional experience, don't just enumerate your job responsibilities. A comprehensive job description will only pad up your resume; save it for the interview. Instead, emphasize any major accomplishments you had chalked up in the job. Use numbers, figures, percentages if possible.

  • Emphasize your educational preparedness.
    • If you are a new graduate with no professional experience, lead with your academic background, honors, and extra-curricular activities. Don't believe the fillip that grades don't matter in the real world; in the beginning at least, they do.

  • Either include references--or don't mention them.
    •  There are two schools of thought on this: One says it's necessary to include references. The other says this only lengthens the resume, and should therefore be available in another sheet of paper only upon request.

  • Use personal details sparingly.
    • In the US where job-discrimination laws are wide ranging and explicit, “a potential employer has no legal right to request information about age, sex, race, religion, marital status, health, physical appearance, or personal habits 

  • Be concise.
    • Resumes are often read in 30 seconds or less so be brief, straightforward and to the point. Use bullet points to underscore important information. Employ paragraph breaks, lines, and numbers. A standard resume should be no more than two pages—three at most if you have extensive professional experience. Beyond that, your resume needs serious editing.

  • Proofread!
    • There should be no typographical or spelling errors in your resume. When using numbers, re-check decimal places or the number of zeros. Punctuation and date formats should be consistent. For example, if you write “2 February 2000” in one section, don't write “March 5, 2000” in another.

  • Make it an easy read.
    • Your resume should also be visually appealing; a carelessly printed, sloppily designed resume will reflect disastrously on you. Thus, make it easy on the eye with lots of white spaces, a font no smaller than 10 in size, and at most two conservative typestyles (such as Times New Roman or Garamond). Underlined and bold text should be used sparingly--only to highlight significant information or to indicate section breaks.

  • One more suggestion: Once written up, show your resume to friends or colleagues. Listen to their comments and suggestions, especially on how easy or difficult it is to find important information at a glance. Then consider all that when rewriting the final draft of your masterpiece.

Useful tips for job interviews

A JOB interview can be a nerve-wracking experience if you are not prepared and lack self-confidence.
We present a few tips that will help you to brush up on your interview skills and come out a winner from your next interview!

  • Plan to arrive 10 minutes early.
    • This will give you ample time to catch your breath, gather your thoughts and make a quick trip to the washroom to give your appearance one final check. To avoid unnecessary stress, choose your interview attire the night before. 

  • Greet the interviewer by his or her last name.
    • If you are unsure of the pronunciation, do ask the employer to repeat it. Or better still, check it with the front desk personnel or receptionist before walking into the interview room.

  • Let the interviewer lead the conversation
    • but try to get him/her to describe the position and duties to you early in the interview. This will allow you to apply your background, skills and achievements to the position.

  • When asked: "Tell me about yourself?",
    •  focus your answers on your background and a few professional and personal accomplishments.

  • Stress on your achievements.
    • For example: your sales records, the processes you have developed or systems installed, projects that you initiated, etc.

  • Show enthusiasm.
    •  This can be demonstrated through verbal and non-verbal cues (for example, appropriate body language like nodding can be used to support your interest). Enthusiastic feedback can enhance your chances of being further considered.

  • Answer questions by speaking in terms of the position.
    • Emphasise what you can do for the company. Mention specific accomplishments that show your abilities and determination to succeed in this job. Your answers should tell the employer why you would be an asset to the company and not why you need a job.
  • Bring an extra copy of your resume.

  • Explain whenever possible; don't answer with a simple "yes" or "no."
Be prepared to answer questions such as:
  • Tell me about yourself.
  • Tell me about your background and accomplishments.
  • What are your strengths? Weaknesses?
  • How would you describe your most recent job performance?
  • What interests you about our company?
Also, be prepared to ask questions such as:
  • What would I be expected to accomplish in this position?
  • What are the greatest challenges in this position?
  • How do you think I fit the position?
Remember, your lack of questions may be mistaken as lack of interest in the job.

If you are interested in the position, stress this to the interviewer. If you get the impression that the interview is not going well and that you have already been rejected, do not let your discouragement show. Once in a while an interviewer who is genuinely interested in you may seem to discourage you as a way of testing your reaction.

Remember to thank the interviewer for his/her time and end the session with a confident and firm handshake.
