August 19, 2015

Getting a job isn’t an easy for a lot of people.

And it’s caused by different factors: the job market isn’t robust, with so many looking for jobs and so few job spaces available; employers can’t find qualified people; etc.

So when a job applicant gets their foot in the company door and bags an interview, he/she needs to prepare for it right?

A collection of pictures was posted on Graduate Fasttrack’s Facebook page recently; and it shows hilarious hacks for job seekers.

1. Make sure to mention that you’ve volunteered for community service.
