1.    Job Preference: In this section, you are required to give details on the kind of job you are looking for:

  • Job categories: Mention your preferred job categories. You can put in more than one category if you are open to options. However, don’t put in categories that you are unqualified for, as this will only be time wasting and too long.  
  • Looking for: Here, you specify the level in which you want to enter in an organization. If you are just beginning your career in the field, put in entry level. With a bit of experience, you can apply for mid-level, and so on. 
  • Available for: Full time means 48hrs per week (8hrs/day). Part time usually means less than 30hrs per week and contract refers to working for a certain amount of time, usually on a specific project. Specify your availability accordingly.
  • Specializations: Mention your field of study or specific subjects or courses that you have undertaken.
  • Expected Salary: Mention the salary that you are expecting. While it is essential that you ask for what you deserve, don’t put in very high salary expectations as this will only turn off employers. Its best to put in a reasonable expectation and you can always negotiate for more in interviews, if the situation allows.
