5 Tips to Land a Job at the Monster Philippines Virtual Career Fair

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Whether you’re a fresh graduate seeking your first job or an experienced professional looking for something different, the Monster Philippines Virtual Career Fair is a prime opportunity to network, connect and find job leads.

To increase your chances over the event, follow these tips and boost your profile:

Register and connect: Go to to register for the Job Fair and include all your current information. Make sure to select the ‘low’ privacy setting to let every employer see your resume. If you don’t have Skype, install the app so interviewers can call you directly if they like what they see.

1. Refresh your resume: As soon as the Job Fair begins, employers will start checking their inboxes quickly. Make sure your resume is front and centre by putting the most relevant information at the beginning. If you’re looking for career possibilities across a few different roles, consider writing a few different resumes and/or cover letters tailored to each type of job. Keep it short and edit out all the clutter. A more specific approach will help you stand out from the crowd.

2. Update your profile: If your current profile on is outdated, get it up to speed. Include your certifications, skills and any extra details. This will help recruiters to get to know the virtual you better.

3. Do your research and ask questions: An interview isn’t just about getting to know you, but an opportunity for you to know the company. Recruiters like meeting people who have done their research, so read recent news, understand what the business does, and prepare intelligent questions to ask the interviewer.

4. Follow up: Like any interview, you’ll need to follow up. Don’t bombard them with emails the day after, but send a follow-up email roughly 3-4 days later. It is also a good idea to send an email 24 hours after the interview to thank the recruiter for their time and for considering you for the role.

About "" is the fastest growing and most awarded blog and social media community that has transcended beyond online media.
