    Looking for a job can be stressful and we at Ummah can help (ok stop with the cheesy advert! )

    a thread dedicated to the whole cv/covering letter/job interviews/job process. Please no messing about here

    I’m helping people with their CV’s off Ummah but as many of your are Ummah members I thought useful stuff can be posted here to benefit others too

    Anything at all, please don’t be shy or embarrassed to post even if it is the night before the interview or you have a few hours left to submit a CV. we can do it as a team.

    Even if it’s just some support or any random question relevant to the whole process- doesn’t matter, please post it

    This won’t be like SAFA GIG cuz we’ll be doing some work here ( ) and helping each other, hope people will contribute esp the older members as you must remember when you were young how stressful and daunting this whole process was- you might still experience it now- but maybe some of you might have become jaded- here’s a chance to refresh yourselves InshaAllah

    Re: The S.M.A.R.T way to find a job InshaAllah- Ummah style.

    I have had pretty much no work experience worth mentioning in the last 20 years and I left school with less than dazzling exam results.

    Any suggestions Umm Socky?
    The following statement is completely true

    You have to write something impressive on the cv. I promised i'd be posting mine, i'll do that in a bit after editing personal details and you can rip off it if you want- just change the words around

    This was my covering letter for my placement CV- Alhamdulillah it worked and all the spare ones, i made paper planes out of them


    The covering letter is pretty essential as it is the fiest thing that will grab the focus of your employee- you have to advertise yourself as boldly as possible without 'smothering' them. Ooze self confidence but don't throttle them with it

    hey sis

    we were taught a little differently on how to write a cover letter.

    its basically the same as yours with one paragraph on your work & education background, and the last paragraph is you thanking and its closing but for us we have a first paragraph that is an intro kind of just introducing yourself, where you found this position to be available and some general skills that directly relate.

    I guess it can vary but you want to try that bit 'different' but your skills come into the cv, which i'll post a bit later. You don't want to make the covering letter too too long as it's glanced upon with key words being picked on- it's the CV that gets the attention and i've seen the employers highlighting key words from the cv.

    *****IMPORTANT*****: Can i please stress again that feel free to send me your CV's, i don't mind one bit checking them but you must take out your personal details, esp the brothers.

    i don't want to know your age, your number or where you live.

    This is irrelevant and i'm not your boss.

    Please try to extract personal information before sending me the cv's.

    Do you have a covering letter with you cv?

    If yes- then review it see if you can make it stand out
    and if no: think about maybe writing one cuz they do pull the attention of the reader esp if you summarise your skills.

    Re: The S.M.A.R.T way to find a job InshaAllah- Ummah style.

    PAH!!! Hard working!!!

    anyways.. i shall behave.. its all good in here so no messing about! let;s get some hot Interview Tips!!!

    1. Preparation and confidence
    2. Preparation and confidence are very important tips. Good preparation always creates confidence. So the important thing to an interview is to be well prepared. In this you have to consider two things:
    3. You must prepare yourself practically for the interview.

    • You have to gather information which is useful during the interview.

    1. Checklist
    2. While going to interview you must consider the following things:
    3. You have to confirm about the time, date and location of the interview and name of interviewee where appropriate.
    4. You have to plan to get there no earlier than half an hour before the interview time.
    5. You must ready with your dress which is professional.
    6. Concentrate on the interview at the interview.
    7. If you are asked to bring certificates, references etc., get them ready before the day. Your interview letter must be with you.
    8. On arrival ensure the receptionist knows you are there.

    1. Be on time!

      Public transport may be useless if the traffic is heavy. Always keep in mind that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. So be on time at the particular location of interview.
      Also if you are there so early, you can wait nearby cafe of shop. And if you are going to be late, then best option is call them.
    2. Be Prepared!
      Preparation means not only preparation of your syllabus etc. but also look at the company's website and learn something about the company before you attend your interview.
    3. Write down and practice possible questions!
      If you collect the job interview sample questions and practice for it then it will make easy to remember when you get to the interview. Use the third person when talking about the job. Avoid sounding as though you assume the job is yours.
      It is fine to ask about the package on offer and accommodation - living in and living out are particularly relevant. Do not forget to find out if the company will guarantee a resort or chalet - many will only allocate you a country. You could also try a fewer more testing questions such as how they differentiate themselves from their competitors or what they think the toughest/hardest part of the job is.
    1. You never get a second chance to make a first impression!
    2. First keep in mind that you never the second chance to make a first impression so be careful.
      Some points are here to remember:
    3. Smile is one of the thing which may matter in your impression. Good smile always please people.

    • Dressing also an important thing. You should be in professional dress. And must be looking formal.
    • Do not forget for firm handshake.
    • Eye contact without glaring is showing your confidence.

    1. Do not talk too much!

    Re: The S.M.A.R.T way to find a job InshaAllah- Ummah style.

    Salaam Cartman,

    Even if its small school, you need to show why you want to work their and how you fulfil the criteria.

    Perhaps try talking to the manager when you pick up the application form. As him/her what type of person they would be looking for and then try to show through your application form how you fulfil that criteria.

    Also, talk to other workers who work there and ask them what the job application process was like. What the job entails, whether they like it, and stuff like that. Then you could say in interview that it sounded like a good job from what the employees said.

    Allahu Alim. Allah knows best.

    May Allah help you find something good for you. Ameen.

    Salaam.

    inshaAllaah soon sis...just make sure you make the most of the time you have now....its easy to waste the time getting depressed about no job, but use this time wisely, because once you do get a job you'll regret it if you just wasted it

    what kinda job are you looking for ?

    And The Job Hunting Commences Once More...
    "And whosoever is conscious of Allah, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. And whoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Indeed Allah has sent a measure for all things." (Quran: 65/2-3)

    Re: The S.M.A.R.T way to find a job InshaAllah- Ummah style.

    keep looking people

    even if it means applying for jobs in positions you'd not want to do, or even voluntary positions (p.t paid/p.t. voluntary is a good compromise)

    in certain fields at the moment really hard to get your foot on the ladder,esp when you are young, and any job is a bonus, esp a crap job, as it shows determination

    and remember to keep making duaas

    Re: The S.M.A.R.T way to find a job InshaAllah- Ummah style.

    the most simplest and most effective advice i can give in searching for a job is the following (tried, tested and successful - by me of course):

    Always carry on completing one application after another - dont stop till you get the job

    Always keep track of the closing date on each job you have applied and then call them 1-2weeks after the closing date to chase up why you have not been contacted yet for an interview - you will be surprised to know it is not always because they didnt want you....

    When you get rejection letters, put them to the side and get straight back to applying for other jobs, do not let it get you down or when you get a rejection letter just reapply for the same job again straightaway (you can do this with some jobs).

    Always proof read your applications before posting them off and ask experience people how you can change or word something better.

    Always keep a copy of the application you send off because you might need to refer to what you wrote if you get called for an interview.

    To reiterate one very important point, always always always chase up applications after the closing date if you have not heard anything, you need THEM more than they need YOU! to many people do not do this and then complain they did not get the jobs.

    If you stick to the above and do not falter, you will definately end up getting a job somewhere with the grace of Allah swt
    The Prophet SAW said, "(There are2words which R dear 2 the most gracious (Allah SWT)&very easy4the tongue2say but very heavy in the balance.They are:Subhan Allahi Wa Bihamdihi - Subhan Allahil-Azim
