Real stories from a job successor who started with courage and ended with a 5-6 figure full-time job.
This is Andrew's Ace A Job Success Story
Analyst - Intelligence & Analytics
My biggest challenge is the experience and skillset. A full-time job in data analytics usually requires that you have at least 2-3 years of experience and your skillset should be demonstrated clearly in the application and the interview.
And as a fresh graduate, I haven’t worked in the local country and still haven’t got local experience.
I also have an employment gap of one year so I think it could be a concern for some companies.
I always believe in networking and referrals and my success story happened exactly the same. I got referred to the job by a friend and got an interview shortly after that. So if you want to get a job quickly, focus on networking and referrals.
Moreover, I think the application strategies in Ace A Job helped me build up a strong application that can convince the hiring manager to interview me. Even with a referral, I still applied through their system, got a phone interview with HR so if my application wasn’t strong enough, I wouldn’t have got an interview with the hiring manager.
I had only 2 days to prepare for the interview but because I used Ace A Job strategy to write my application, I understood my profile thoroughly and use it to answer the interview questions. Plus, my experience in data analytics also helped me nailed technical questions well.
It took me about one week from the first interview to signing the offer including a reference check. It’s very fast! I’m so happy to work in banking – the area I’ve been building my professional career in and it’s also the reason why I came here to get my Master’s degree.
My salary is also a bit higher than my expectation. I’m also very lucky that my boss is so supportive. Now I can start enjoying a better life and get ready for my PR. Things couldn’t have been possible without Ace A Job and your support, Thea. Thank you so much!
