FAQ

What do employers absolutely not want to see on a résumé?
I can tell from my experience what I absolutely do not like in a resume. Please keep in mind my experience is only with technology jobs and I am primarily recruiting for similar kinds of individuals all my life. A recruiter for example will have a very wide array of experience.This is what I don’t expect to see in resumes:Chronological description of everything you have ever done. Especially if you have a 10+ year professional experience. I do not care what project you did in 1994.Keep in mind we are checking your LinkedIn. So don’t just tell the exact same story on your resume as is on your LinkedIn. Give us something more.I don’t need to know your exact address, if you are married, have kids etc. Those are not relevant and in fact can create unconscious bias.If you have 10+ years experience or even 5+ years, your exact grades at college and school are not super critical. If you say I have a bachelors in X from Y college that should be sufficient. I don’t need to know you passed with 66.67% this year.I really like resumes geared towards specific roles. Eg. If you are applying for a role to be a manager, create a category in your resume highlighting everything you have done as a manager/leader in the past, going back to college. Think of your resume as having a number of your avatars represented. Some may be as a manager, some as a developer, some as testers etc.Don’t just list what you have done, but also include an abstract explanation of why we should hire you. What do you bring to the table which makes you great for this particular role?Keep your resume short and relevant. I often see resumes listing 30, 40, 50 + technologies listed in them. YOU CANNOT BE AN EXPERT IN ALL THESE TECHNOLOGIES. We need to know your 3 expertise. Highlight them. When I see a vast array of technologies listed my immediate thought is it’s because you are not an expert in any one of them.Please don’t put things like you know Oracle, mysql, mongoDB, postgres sql. It’s confusing because we don’t know what you are saying - are you a database expert, SQL expert, noSQL expert, have just used them or not an expert in any of them.Keep your LinkedIn profile updated. It’s not optional anymore.Try to capture any non job related stuff you have done. No, I don’t mean we need to know if you are an awesome singer, rather if you contribute to open source projects, speak at conferences, write blogs/whitepapers etc.Tell a story and don’t treat your resume like Listverse.
How was your experience in interview's of Maharatna PSU after Gate?
NTPCMy first maharatna PSU interview. While sitting outside the interview hall, I overheard people discussing that interviewers were asking random questions. Waited for my turn, while my patience was running out.Someone shouted, Himangshu Barman, come in!Me- (To 4 male interviewers, all in their late 40s/early 50s) Good Afternoon sirs, may I come in please?Interviewer 1- Come in Himangshu, have a seat.Me- Thank you sirI2- So your branch is mechanical, eh? Tell me about yourself.Me- Regular bla bla bla.I1- Tell me about your internship. Where you did and what you learnt.Me- Did internship in Indian Oil refinery, Guwahati, sir. Told basics of refining processes.I3– Ok, so there is a refinery in Bongaigaon, Assam. Which district is it in?Me- (Didn't know the correct answer, but responding confidently) Its in Bongaigaon district only sir!I3- Tell us the final products of Refinery.Me- Bla bla bla.I2 interrupts- You are missing out an important one! Try to remember it.Me- This was all I knew sir.I2- Its bla bla. (Never heard of it before, forgot its name within a week). Ok now tell me the flash point of petrol.Me- Around bla sir.I2- Viscosity index of diesel?Me- Don't know sir.I3- What did you learn in internship? Not quite satisfactory. If you get to join NTPC, I hope you'll pay attention during training classes!Interview duration was around 10 minutes.Result-Selected.IOCLAfter GD and GI rounds, I remember waiting outside the interview hall and literally begging every candidate coming out of the hall to tell me some questions. How I regretted that day for not having revised my basics and literally wasting the past two months. NTPC results had not come yet, and I was quite sure I had blown my chance there. IOCL was my last chance at a Maharatna. I had to excel.Finally my name was called out.Me- May I come in?I1– Yes Himangshu. Please introduce yourself.Me- Bla bla. Bla bla bla. Told about internship in Indian Oil.I1– Are you ok? You look so nervous. Tell me about pump. Different types, about NPSH.ME- Told.I2– Which division of IOCL you would like to work in?Me- Marketing. Gave some crappy reason for itAt this point, I was blabbering anything coming to my mind.I1– Have a glass of water man, don't​ be so nervous.I3– Ok, you have a situation where you are the manager of a PSU, and the workers are on strike. How will you convince their leader?Me- Will bribe him or if not possible, call the police.I3– Man, you have some disturbing thoughts. Please don't ruin our company with your wild ideas! Laughs.I2– Why don't you join OIL. Its in your home state right? I've heard promotions are easy there. Why joining IOCL?Me- Gave some dumb reason, on the lines of IOCL being a Maharatna company.I1– Are you willing to be posted anywhere in India?Me- Yes sir.I2– Ok draw some characteristic curves of pumps.Me- Was prepared for this question. Showed some rough diagramsI1– Himangshu, you have answered all the questions correctly, but with zero confidence. Try to improve on that. Anyways, do you have any questions? If not, you may leave now.Me- No questions sir. Thank you.Interview duration was around 30 minutes.Result- Selected.

Admission to the best business schools in MBA programs requires a couple of years of work experience.GMAT - To apply for MBA from Abroad you have to clear GMAT exam which stands for Graduate Management Admission Test. It is mathematics and the English language for measuring aptitude test that business schools use the test as a criterion for admission into graduate business administration programs.TOEFL - You should also have an TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) score if your medium of education during your graduation is not English.Once you are through with these tests you need to apply individually to all the business schools where you want to get admission for MBA course.Application - MBA applications are more elaborate and time-consuming than job applications.

How can I surely achieve a 7.0 in each section of the IELTS in a months time? I'm currently standing at a score of 9.0 in reading, 6.5 in writing, 6.5 in speaking, and 7.5 in listening.
In my opinion, (which is validated by the IELTS scores of the people I have trained) you don’t need more than 4 weeks of daily training. Set aside 3 hours that you devote to practice for IELTS - and it will get you the desired results.There are three main problems that will get in your way: time, tricks and logical traps. When it comes to IELTS, time is your worst enemy. You need to do things fast. Of course you would get all the answers right if you had the time. But the reality is that there are a lot of questions to be answered, a lot of writing to be done, and very little time to do it. So, please practice enough Mock Tests and IELTS Practice Papers (authentic ones) under strict time conditions.Learn the following strategies from a certified IELTS - Trainer (Expert) and take one-on one sessions to acquire all the tricks and guidance in the following fields:Improve your listening speed by watching selective TV programs in English. Learn to Listen, hear the right answers and write them down fastHow to select the correct keywords from questions and ignore the unnecessary terms?Lean to identify he ‘DISTRACTORS’ used in the questions as well as the Text in the Reading Passages.Enhance the skill of PARAPHRASING and build IELTS - VOCABULARY by doing regular academic reading from articles, newspapers, magazines, or books.Scan through the text an deal with all kinds of Questions Fast.Get your Essay writing drafts assessed by IELTS Experts and learn the Do’s and Don’ts of writing an effective Essay.For Reading, Don’t read — scan!: It sounds absurd that you don’t need to read in a Reading test, right? Anyway, its true. The biggest mistake you could make is to start the test by reading the whole passage. The best thing is to scan quickly through the text. Don’t try to understand every word! Usually you don’t need to read the whole paragraph - a couple of sentences are enough.For Writing Section you need to be aware of all the different formats and structures of LETTERS and ESSAYS as well as learn the Vocabulary and appropriate language structures (Formal v/s Informal). Keep writing neat, clean and nice- looking! Read more on writing techniques to achieve band score 7 for sure in just 2 weeks training.Tips that will help remove Hesitation while Speaking: There are many fillers used by speakers at the time they are hesitating for word or content such as ah, um, er, uh etc. which add nothing to your speaking. You should try to minimize filler words as far as possible as they lead to an impression of lack of confidence, lack of preparation and lack of passion to speak. Moreover, it can be very annoying for the listeners to hear these filler words.IELTS Coaching at a Centre vs IELTS Online Coaching: As you know, a classroom environment is where you learn in a group of students. The size of class may range from 10 to 15 students or even more in case of large classrooms. In this scenario, it is not at possible for a trainer to provide full attention on a particular student. On the other hand, an Online Coaching class will enable you to get trained from the trainer directly with no other students involved. Hence, trainer pays special attention on you in the one-to-one training session to properly guide you on your way to achieve your target scores.Finally, nothing can deter you to achieve your target Band Score if you stay consistent with your practice sessions everyday under an IELTS - Expert for about 4 - 5 weeks.All the best!
How can I get a job in Australia?
EDIT : I got mamy questions from readers of this article. I put the questions and the answers at the end of this article. If you have new questions let me know in the comments and Ill get to them as soon As I get a chance.LET’S DO IT !!!!!START HERE ➡️ ➡️ I guarantee, by the time you finish reading this article and apply what I say, you will 100% get your dream job extremely fast, not just in Australia but anywhere in the world.I came to Australia in 2005 as a student to do my Bsc at Monash University, Clayton VIC. I finished my degree in 2008 and in the same year I landed a Web Designer job at a reputable company in Richmond.Then I went to an even better job, then even better salary and along the way, I worked at Deakin University in Burwood as a Web Development Coordinator as well. Oh man I LOVED that job. 2 mins drive from my home, brand new $5000 upgraded Apple Macbook Pro for free, ability to work from home for few days a week, ability work at the Deakin modern headoffice in CBD, super high tech conference rooms you’ve never seem before, Just WOW!When you find the #DreamJob you will never regret a single day.Landing jobs were extremely easy for me. You might think I'm extremely smart and talented. NO! and NO!. I think Im just creative and brave. I don’t give a rats ass about what others think and I always jump and take risks without worrying about the consequences. Be like that and you’ll go places and remember life is too short to live small and be an average-bloke no one remembers.I got normal grades at school and even in Uni. My programming skills are below the average requirement Employers looking for. Seriously. I am a Front-end Developer (Website builder) and my jQuery and Angular skills (programming skills) are around 3/10. So I am not the most skilled and experienced person.I landed jobs because I followed a specific path and some secrets I figured out by myself. I did few things other candidates didn’t bother doing. I'm going to tell you all in this article.My friends had a really hard time landing jobs and I realised they have been doing everything wrong. I know a LOT of people happily spend thousands of dollars on course fees, spend years and years at universities and in the end, end up doing an odd job they are not proud of. Many people are stressed at work or in the wrong field because they don’t know how to land their #dreamjob. Job takes up all your life and it’s meant to make you feel happy, safe and motivated not the other way round. Everyone is promoting “Quit 9–5” but No! Find the right 9–5 and it’ll help you save a lot of money, buy a nice house, find the right partner and have more free time for yourself. It did for me. That’s the reason I decided to write this article.Don’t think going to the best universities or just coming to Australian alone will give you a bright future. There’s more to it. You have to work extremely hard on yourself, on your career and everyone around you and that will guarantee a bright future. I’m going to help you get the “Your career” part right. :)I’m going to tell you how to get a job in Australia the easy way, no bull.I’m a Sri Lankan. The whole process of getting a job is very different in here. This article is for all the International blokes and local blokes who are having a hard time landing a job. I wish someone told me these earlier in my career. Things would have been so much easier that way. But no one in the freaking world was able to put down some points together and give a sure fire way to land a job. Because no one wants to share their secrets.OK... Here you go…1) Change your name.Yes from today you will get yourself a name that’s easy to pronounce and remember.My actual name is Udara Uragoda. But I use Udi Ura when applying for jobs. I still apply for jobs with my original name, but you get better chances with an English name. If you are Ching Chong, go with something like Michael Chong. You get the idea right? Same with Indians, Bangladeshis, Vietnamese, Chinese etc. Change your name. Why? Because it's simply easy to remember and pronounce.EDIT: Some asked me if they have to change the name “legally”. No! Just a pet name. Everyone has one, so get one for yourself as well.2) Get your own domain name.Now, if your new name is Udi Ura, get http://UdiUra.com.au, if its Jay Singh, get http://JaySinghe.com.au. It's $12 per year, $24 for 2 years on Crazy Domains. Why? I’ll explain further down.3) Setup a Professional Email account.Then set up a professional email account that goes with your domain. Then create hello@yourname.com.au email address for yourself. Then set it up on your Mobile as well.Don’t ever email your CV / Resume from your Gmail addresses or Hotmail address especially if you are in IT. But this applies to everyone. You have 0% chance on landing a job with spammy email addresses. Emailing from Gmail and Hotmail was ok 15 years ago when Emailing was new, but now things have changed and you have to change accordingly. IT has changed a lot and its now easily accessible for everyone.You might land a job but you have to be really lucky or you must have some really unique skills and experience other candidates don’t have. But for the rest of us, that’s not the case :)You can set up this from crazy domains as well. Ask for their help Domain Names Search - Domain Name Registration Australia4) Now setup a simple Website for yourself.If you don’t know how to, then get someone from FIVERR .com to setup a simple wordpress site for you. Wonder why you need a website? See the FAQs section at the end of the article but first finish reading this.Keep everything simple. Don’t follow the CV structure you followed when you were back in your country. Keep it really simple on the website as well. I’ll tell you more about the CV structure later.5) Do your CVDo not follow the CV structure you used back in your country. Australian CV structure is EXTREMELY different. Don’t ever put things like Bio data, Nationality, Height, Weight (lol), hair colour etc.Ok. This is important. Companies have CV filtering systems. They search for keywords in your CV and that’s how they drill down 10,000 applications to 5 applications. To tackle this, make sure to have good keywords in the body text of your CV and cover letter. If you are a web designer, include web site design, UX Design, UI Developer etc in the body of the CV when writing.6) Setup a LinkedIn ProfileThis is very important. This is the first place Aussie companies look for before calling you for an interview.Put the same content as CV and Website, enter your skills, past experiences etc etc. The CV, Website and Linkedin Profile all need to be on aligned when it comes to content.7) Do a Cover LetterOk back to the list. Again keep it simple and very different to the cover letters back in your country. Don’t ever say “Dear Sir”. Australians don't use Sir. Say “Dear {first name}” example “Dear Michelle” instead.8) Search for Jobs on SEEKGo to SEEK - Australia's no. 1 jobs, employment, career and recruitment site and start looking for jobs. When you apply, make sure to save the job description into word documents if you're interested.Create folders for every month and copy and paste the job descriptions into word documents and save it in your folder. The reason is usually companies take down their job listing from Seek when they start sorting candidates.9) Applying for JOBS. Read Carefully!Ok. This is the most important part.Before applying, proofread everything. Give it to someone in FIVERR and proofread your CV and Cover Letter both. Then fix your Website and the LinkedIn profile as wellWhen applying, make sure the cover letter is addressed to the right person in the company. DONT EVER send a mass email to every company you can find with Dear Sir/Madam on it. It needs to be personalised.Think of it this way. If you don’t even spend some time to show that you really like to work in a particular company and you don’t even call them and ask their Human Resources Manager’s name or the person in charge of your role’s name, why would they give a shit about you?Australian companies get over 5000 applications for each job. Especially IT and Accounting jobs. I once applied and landed a job and the Recruitment officer said they received 10,000 applications. Then they filtered it to 5 applicants and interviewed everyone and finally chose me. This is 6 years ago. So now, it’s 10X more competitive.But you are lucky because you found this article. Not everyone will apply for jobs properly. That means you have a high chance of landing the job :)First things firstFirst, make sure the Job title is displayed in your CV and Cover letter as EXACTLY as the company’s job description. If the company is looking for a Front-end Web Developer, change your CV and Cover Letter header part to Front-end Web Developer. Don’t just leave it as Web Developer or Web Programmer.Everything in your Cover letter and CV should align with what the company is looking for. You are the one looking for the job, not the company. So give your CV and Cover Letter some thought before applying.The important thing is, you don’t have to apply for 100s of jobs. You only have to apply for 10–20 jobs, the right way and BOOM!Emailing the CVOnce CV and Cover Letter is ready, copy the cover letter heading and the body copy to your email, attach the CV and Cover letter and send it to the person. Send them in PDF format. Don’t ever send ugly word documents unless they specifically ask for it.Add your email signature as well with your new name, phone, email etc.Following upAfter a day or two, call them and ask them about the job you applied. Every company will provide you how they are going.10) InterviewLet’s say a company calls you for an interview. Here’s how you will attend the interviewBe PreparedYou are so close to getting the job. So don’t mess it up.First, research about the company. What they do, their website, staff, managers, directors, type of work they do and what your exact role is at the company.Search the company on Google and read their Articles, PR articles, Facebook, News everything you can find. Know 100% in and out of the company. This alone will increase your chances of landing the job by 100%.They will ask you questions to see if you actually did any research. Do it! It's very very very very important.Dress codeIf you are a male, wear a nice suit and a tieBe there at least 5 minutes before the interview. Don’t ever get late. Once I got 10 mins late and the HR manager asked me to leave after I arrive at their office. If you ever get late, call them and inform. But if you are late it’s bad first impression so you might as well drive back home.If you are a woman, get a nice office suite from a good clothing shop. Google office attire and follow them.During the interview & PERSONALITYSay Hello {Person’s name}, and shake hand.Be cool. This is the most important thing. Don’t act like you are just off the boat. Act like you have been living in Australia for a long time and you love the culture and you have adapted well.Maybe you DO love the culture already, but the point is, you have to show you can blend in with their company’s current staff and culture well. This is the MOST IMPORTANT PIECE OF ADVICE. I have seen companies interview extremely skilled people but they don’t know how to blend in and be nice to others. No one hires this type. Companies don’t just look for the skill. They first look at the personality and if you pass that, then the skills.So, this is the time you show them you are the right person for the job. If you act like a cocky dumb idiot, then forget about the job. This is where most of the International blokes like us get screwed. We act like stupid dickheads! Don’t, because you have a high chance of landing the job.Show them you are friendly, you can work with others and you are down to earth.They will decide if you are the right person within the first 2 minutes of meeting you. Trust me. They meet a lot of candidates EVERYDAY and they can feel you even before you arrive.If you don’t know something tell them you don’t know it but you are the type of a person who loves to learn and they will accept, but still, you have to do your research and be well prepared for their questions.Once I got a job interview with 24 hours notice, I went to http://lynda.com and learnt this particular Content Management System called Joomla in 10 hours at a stretch. You have to be extremely committed. Remember, there are 10,000 applicants.Impressing the recruitment officerI always always impress the interviewer. Here’s how I do it and this is the best secret out of all the secrets.When my role is Front-end Developer, the first thing I do is look at their current website. They probably want someone to look after their websites. So what I do is, I design their website in Photoshop and print it on large boards from Officeworks (printing company) and take it to the interview.EVERYTIME… YES EVERY TIME I do this, the interviewers go WOW! and they can’t believe their eyes. They just look at each other with glazed eyes. You have to do exactly the same in your field. You have to impress them in a way they will NEVER FORGET. You can think of ways to impress no matter what your role is. Accountants can impress, Engineers can impress, Data entry guys can impress. Anyone can impress if you think outside the box and be creative. Don’t be scared to impress. Give yourself permission to be creative and take risks.Being different is the game.I once impressed a General Manager during the interview and he has told his whole team about me once I left the interview. I finally got the job and me impressing the GM was a topic that always came up until I resigned after 3 years. In his actual words, “You set the bar high for the other guys.“When that happens, you know you got the job by its horns.If you do all these you will land a job within 2 weeks rather than 2 years. Trust me. You got this and this is a proven method I use every time and it just works.Also watch the movie “The Pursuit of Happyness”. That’s how committed you should be when you look for a job.My dream is to get this article to 100,000 upvotes. So go ahead and hit Upvote and Comment. I promise I’ll reply :)All the best! Let me know how you go.Frequently Asked QuestionsI recently moved here. I don’t have experience or references. What should I doI know. I’ve been there too. How can I get 2 years of freakin experience if you are not willing to give me a job right? Do this. Look for internships. Ask to work for free. Start with a small entry type junior role. Work for no money. Gain the experience of atleast 6 months this way. That experience you gain will be worth a Million . Doesn’t have to be from the same company. But it has to be in the same industry or similar role. Don’t do random jobs. Decide which role or industry you want to work in, you are passionate about and then go hunt. It’ll be tough. Extremely tough. You’ll feel like giving up after going for 15 interviews. But don’t. You are always just 1 interview away from achieving your dream job, settling down, buying that house, car and having a happy life with so much money and freedom. (That’s what I kep telling myself in the early years and it works and it’s true )I’m overseas right now. How do I get a Job in Australia from here?I am not very knowledgeable in the work visa field. Talk to a reputed Australian migration agent. Send me a Message and I have couple of good contacts. Important thing is don’t look for cheap lawyers and waste your money. Many readers sent me messages saying they lost thousands by scam migration agents. So be cautious.I’m in engineering, medical, teaching, gardening field. Is this occupation in demand in Australia?Best way to find is by looking at current jobs. Go to http://seek.com.au and enter your role. Enter a broader keyword instead of a narrow one. Example : instead of typing “water engineer” or “transport engineer” type “civil engineer”. No plurals. Just singular.Then select Sydney and search. Go through all the job roles and read them. Do the same with Melbourne. Spend a good few hours researching and understand what’s in demand. No ones going to help you with these. You have to do it your self and become knowledgeable in your space and understand the job market. Remember, you have to adjust to the jobs in the market not the otherway round. If the jobs in the market is not what you want you have to adjust. You can’t stop the WAVES but you can learn to SWIM.Why do I need a website?Think of it this way. When you apply for a job, the first thing the recruiter will do is Google you. When that happends you have to be present on the internet. The recruiter expects to see your LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook, Stackoverflow, Dribble, Youtube, Personal Website (aha, see), comments you have made on public websites, etc. When someone searches you, the entire first page of good should be filled with your Stuff. That’s called being active and present in 2019.IF THERE’S ANYTHING ELSE YOU LIKE ANSWERED PUT IT IN COMMENTS.
