A friend rang me after applying for 40+ jobs in 2 months with 0 contacts and 0 interviews

I got him 4 recruiter contacts, 3 interviews and 1 officer in 2 weeks

Here's what we tweaked:

He initially told me he was job hunting and would prefer to apply online

After reading his profile, I tried to discourage him, but he insisted on online applications.

I agreed but on a condition
I told him:

"If you don't get a job in 60 days, we will do it my way"

He agreed.

Artificial Intelligence is the hottest technology in 2023. Most tech companies are making new investments in AI which has created new career opportunities not just in machine learning but in MLOps as well. This thread is on career opportunities in #MLOps. RT to spread the word.👇
What is MLOps?

As companies generate and collect vast amounts of customer data, managing these large datasets and the numerous machine-learning models they create will get increasingly complex. MLOps is sometimes referred to as #AIOps as well.
MLOps is the systematic approach to managing the entire lifecycle of ML models and their deployment in a production environment. It combines principles and practices of software engineering and #DevOps to ensure efficient, reliable, and scalable management of ML models.

I had a 50% pay cut when I left my casual jobs in Australia to start a professional 9-5 one

You might think it's a crazy idea

Here are five reasons why it wasn't:

1. Post-Study Visa

After my degree, I received a two-year post-study work visa.

This visa lets you work unlimited hours in Australia. Same with Canada, the UK, etc

The problem is that many international students don't use this visa correctly.

- Use it to work as much as they
- Use it to relax, cool off and travel the world for months

I am not saying this is bad, but if your goal is to get a permanent visa, then you need to understand that these aren't your immediate priorities.

I get shortlisted for at least 90% of the jobs I apply for.

Here are the 5 resume strategies that work for me every single time.

[Not your average resume advice]

1. Knowing the job of a resume

Your application process becomes easier once you understand that a resume only has one job.

-- To SELL you. @OgbeniDipo

Yes, a resume is a marketing tool.

If it doesn't sell you, then forget it.

You won't smell the interview door no matter how solid your skills are or how talented you are.

You are the king, and your resume is your messenger.

It needs to represent you and convey your message properly. @ritapurity

Many international students enrol for another degree to remain lawful in various countries because they couldn't find a job.

I feel terrible.


It can be very expensive to study again.

Here are 5 ways to avoid this loop:
#1. Mindset

The problem with many students is that they only think about work after they graduate.

They live like we are in the 80s.
In the '80s:

- Education wasn't as common
- Employers wooed students with jobs
- Our parents got jobs before leaving school.

E.g. My dad, in his early 20's, got a job before leaving school. The job came with a brand new official car and a driver.

I have reviewed 100+ resumes of graduates and early career professionals in 2022.

99% of these resumes need massive re-work

Here are 12 common issues I noticed

#1. Resume Length

Most CVs with 4-5 pages have less than 3 years of work experience.

#Employers will only scan your resume for less than 10 seconds

Keep it to one page
#2. Formatting

Many of these CVs are poorly formatted.

- Margins are not concise
- Bullet points are out of order
- Inconsistent font size and style

Policing is facing #recruitment crisis: # applicants continue to ↓ across continent.

One tool freq used by #police = recruitment videos. But what do these videos highlight & how can they affect who applies?

In new article, I explore these ?s:…


1/15 Image
Police #recruitment #videos serve several related functions, incl to:

1. Attract prospective applicants to the PD;

2. Communicate specific roles, responsibilities & benefits of a career with the PD;

3. Help prospective applicants assess their potential with the PD.

In light of their functions, it’s important to consider how content of #videos may impact who applies for #policing #careers, and, in turn, who becomes police officers.

This is especially relevant given the challenges currently facing #policing, like the legitimacy crisis.

By recognising the symptoms of a defective gearbox you can fix it before the problem gets worse & it ends up costing an arm

Early gearbox repair is crucial to reduce chances of stalling
#SpaceYaMagari #Fridaymotivation #Careers #cars ImageImageImageImage

A malfunctioning gearbox/transmission, as opposed to a broken brake light, could strand you & your vehicle on the side of the road in the middle of the night or on a long trip

So, how can you know if a gearbox needs repair or replacement? ImageImage

To reduce friction & overheating, Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) is incorporated in automatic gears. If this fluid starts to leak it'll contribute to gearbox failure, in fact

ATF leaks are normally a bright red fluid found under the engine in a leaking car ImageImageImageImage

Dear International Students and Graduates,

I will explain why it seems employers don't want to hire you and what you can do better.

#1. You are considered high-risk

Hiring is a risky business.

You are worried employers don't want to hire you, but the employers are afraid you might not be able to perform in the role.
Would you blame the employer?

Maybe not.

A bad hire is essentially time and money wasted.
Employers don't like to go back to the drawing board.

As an int'l graduate in Australia, I got turned back by the reception each time I approached an organisation in person in hopes of finding work.

Here is my mistake and what I did to fix it to land a job.


If you are like me, you wake up one day and approach an organisation in search of a job.

There's nothing wrong what this approach, but it often fails, especially in advanced countries.
So, here's my mistake:

I walk in with my resume and meet the receptionist.

Me: Hello, I am looking for a job within this organisation.

Reception: Oh ok. All positions are advertised online on our website. Please visit the company's website.

Dear Prospective or Current International Student,

You are grossly under-utilising your tuition fees if all you do is to attend classes and wait for exams

Here's how to get the most out of your tuition and

1. Training

Go to your library and find out which training are available for students to attend for free.

Most schools have free sessions.
I started learning #R and #Python at #UQ library

I landed jobs in AU because I could program in #R

Find out which software you need for your role(s), and check if your school run a free training

2016: Commenced studies in AU
2018: Completed studies
2019: Landed two jobs in AU without applying online
2020: AU Global Talent Award (PR, essentially)
2021: AU Citizenship Approved

I will share 8 key insights that were useful in this journey:


1. Clarity of goals

Be clear about what you want from the onset.
Your goal needs to be as clear as water.
It's hard to achieve your goals without clear and pe-defined goals.
Lots of money, time and resources are wasted in the absence of a clear goal.
Know what you want.
2. Upgrade your thinking:

I was in school but hardly thought like a student.

I started planning how to get a job in my first semester, not on graduation day.

Start early to get ahead.

Dear Prospective or Current International Student,

I came across this email and thought I'd share an important story with you.

I received the email below from a contact while trying to navigate my options after my master's degree in Australia.

#thread Image
I was enrolled for a Master of Public Health in 2016.

As you can see, many assumed there was no future (jobs, visas, etc).

Don't get me wrong.

They meant well because it was actually easier to go via other courses.
I chose to stay.

I knew it would be challenging. But I didn't really care. I was actually open to leaving AU.

I kept going.
