OPPORTUNITIES & CHALLENGES IN INTERNSHIP & JOB SEEKING POST COVID-19

by GRADUAN

Finding an internship or employment as a student is challenging enough, but now a pandemic and a wrecked economy are added to the mix, making things even more difficult. Since the outbreak, the number of employment and internship listings has decreased dramatically. Ms. Amalina Safiah Azhar, Executive of Public Relations & Events of GRADUAN, has shared a few essential points on how the current pandemic has affected the way businesses hire and how we can adjust to the new norm.

Adapting to the virtual world is one of the many obstacles that graduates encounter at this period. It’s vital to be creative when we explore the corporate world in terms of networking so that employers can see our actual personality. A resume is no longer something employers look forward to therefore you’ll need a different approach. Sending a video resume can highlight your interpersonal and presenting skills as well as other significant elements that will undoubtedly capture the employers’ attention. Ms. Amalina shared some pointers on how to promote oneself as fresh graduates as well as on how to use LinkedIn to get a job or internship placement.
