Academics are important, but sometimes money can be a problem when it comes to a tight schedule. Finding a part-time job is one way to manage financial needs without compromising your social life or academics. Many employers prefer to hire part-time employees because it eliminates the need to provide certain employee benefits. Some leading employers tend to prefer online applications, while others prefer written applications. When searching for part-time jobs in Singapore, consider a few general guidelines.
Making a List
It would be wise to gather a list of companies that specifically hire for part-time positions. Make certain that the employer is hiring for immediate placement and not just accepting applications. Begin to apply via paper or online once you have generated an adequate list.
If you are interviewing for non-professional positions, such as in a restaurant or retail store, business casual is appropriate attire. It is important for employees to be well-groomed, neat and tidy to present a positive image, but do not overdo it with your outfit or appearance.
Following Up with Applications
Keep track of every application you submit. Ask for receipt confirmation or feedback from potential employers. Be polite and try to show initiative towards any potential employers once you have submitted your application. As time passes, contact these employers every week or so to request a status update on your application. At the same time, however, do not call so often that you annoy the hiring department.
Mistakes to Avoid
There are a few mistakes almost every person makes when applying for part-time jobs. To begin, do not skim any instructions that are given to you by a potential employer. You may miss the real intent of the application questions. Companies do not want an employee that is incapable of following the directions on a job application.
Fabricated information and dishonesty are grounds for immediate dismissal from most jobs. Avoid the temptation to embellish or make up credentials on your CV or application.
Finding a part-time job in Singapore should not be difficult if you play by the rules. Remember that if you need a job quickly, begin looking for employers who are hiring immediately instead of looking for ones who are only accepting applications. If an employer does not readily provide you with information regarding the availability of a job, simply ask for it.
