How to Apply for a Job

Some of fresh graduates students still don't know how to apply for a suitable job, so here are the steps. 
The first step is searching for job vacancies which offer work position that you want. You can do this by searching in websites, reading newspapers and attending job fairs. You have to find out the detailed information about the company and the offered position. However, make sure it is suitable for you. 
The second step is making the application letter and curriculum vitae that illustrate your personal information, education, skills, and work experience. You can learn how to make this from books, the Internet, or friends experiences. You can insert your transcript, graduation certificate, photos, and certificates of achievements into your application folder.
The third step is sending your application by mail, e-mail, or coming directly to the company or job fair. 
The fourth step is waiting for the interview invitation, and preparing yourself for the test. Sometimes it takes about two weeks. However, it can be longer or shorter. It depends on the company. Based on my experience when 1 applied for a job in Pertamina, they sent their invitation after i had waited for four months. 
The fifth step is taking the test. There are 3 kinds of tests: psychotest, interview test, and physical test. You have to improve your logical skills such as arithmetic, algibre, and kraeplin. Read more about interview tips. The more tips you know the more confident you are. Then, don't forget to keep your body healthy or to watch your health and consume various nutritious foods for your stamina and concentration. So that you can face the interview and do physical test well.
The last step is signing the work contract. Make sure that you read the contract carefully. If you don't get the job that you apply in the company, don't worry because maybe this job isn't suitable for you. You can find another job vacancy that is more suitable for you.
