As you probably know, WeChat is far more than a basic communication platform. It can be used to make payments, play games, buy food and much more.
One major aspect of WeChat is its chat groups, where communities and groups of people can come together based on a common interest, such as a simple friends circle, a work group, hobby enthusiasts or information seekers.
This article will look into the latter example – information seekers – in particular, job seekers.
Most people in the modern world are accustomed to using some form of online technology to find what they want. Job-hunting is no exception. But what’s the best way to do this?
Here are some points to consider if you want to use WeChat groups for job hunting:
Look out for fake or untrustworthy job posts
A big problem in jobs groups is that some advertisements are false or have an ulterior motive. A common sense approach is needed. If a job offers something too great, or it takes the opposite approach and offers almost nothing, with a promise of big earnings or commission later, then you would be best to think twice about getting involved. Ideally, try to figure out which job posts are from reputable sources.
Stay up to date on employment trends in your industry
Every sector has different ways of doing things. At any given time, there are numerous factors influencing employment and recruitment trends. If you know what’s going on in your industry, you’ll be better prepared and know what to look for in job groups.
Potential employers in the group can see everything
Your presence and activity in jobs groups will form a first impression that employers could use to judge you. Some people have a habit of talking or arguing about unrelated topics online. Try to avoid doing this in job groups! Your online activity is the same as real life; people and employers will form an impression about who you are.
