You can contact me at 6789998212 and
Thank you.

Maria Elena


ok, this is just a mock cover letter! all the details are just made up but if you can draw your attention to the email, sounds silly isn't it?

andddd that's why i want to share this tip!
i know it's convocation season now which means all you fresh grads will or already have started looking for jobs!

that's great!

so about the email~
i pernah had the task to filter resumes to help my boss in my old company.
and a few potential employee he immediately rejects because of the email address. if he finds it too long, too complicated and weird, dia tanak tengok pun the rest. coz well, usually we put our emails at the top kan.

it's first impression.

according to his philosophy, if this person who wants to be employed, can't even have a real email address, how would he know this person is matured enough to work with him?
well, that's his philosophy. whether i agree or not, dia dah boss kot. means dia lagi tau pasal kerja dari saya yang noob ni kan. then, who knows brape ramai lagi yang thinks like him kan?

so that's why, it's really important to have a real email address.
and i strongly recommend myemail because your email address will be based on your name on your MyKad! if you don't understand why, well it's because you have to register with your real name and IC and then your email will have to be authenticated by JPN. ha, amik tu. serious gila!

myemail ni pun actually very good for those yang dah ber-family, working professionals and those yang nak start business because its got unlimited inbox size, dia punya e-billing system is very systematic and safe because they have tracking features that will make sure you receive the bills, save the environment because you're not using papers kan and so much more!!

you can check out other ways to optimise your myemail at Facebook too! =D

in conclusion, get one important thing right, which is your email address! and when you get on to the interview, then that's a different type of first impression!

good luck!!! =D

Email tu baik ada dua, satu yang formal guna nama sebenar, satu lagi yang tak formal, untuk kawan2, untul laman sosial, gunalah yang nick tu tapi jgn guna yg terlampau mengarut contohnya
