3. Read the job description

Always remember rule no. 1 of any job hunt: Read the job description.

Reading job description is key, it lets you know what to expect

It is normal to be impatient when applying for a job, especially when you are someone that has a family to support. Many of us will spam the "apply" button without checking the job scope in detail. Often, this leads to disagreement between the job seeker and his/her employer because the employer may seek certain skills.

For instance, some companies may need employees with industry-related experience. If an applicant fails to meet the requirements of the employer, he/she is likely to be rejected due to not being a good-fit to the company. Before you sign on the dotted line, scrutinise the job scope carefully, attention to details, make sure exactly that you know what you are getting yourself into before it is too late.

As a famous proverb says "it is better to be safe than to be sorry", it is always good to know your employer inside out to ensure that you are the right fit for the position.

4. Check the listed salary

Obviously, compensation and money matter. You will need to confirm the salary with your prospective company during the interview process. On many occasions, interviewees may forget or shy away from asking about the salary.

Do not forget or be afraid to confirm the salary! You will be drawing that amount in the future.

Don't be afraid to ask the employer to confirm their salary!


Evidently, most job postings on WorkClass.co provide the expected salary range. However, you need to confirm the finalised pay with your employer. Once you sign the employment contract and accept the job offer, it will be too late and usually, the job seekers will have to pay a compensation fee for breaking the contract. Therefore, double-check on the stipend before accepting any job offer.

Under the side navigation bar on WorkClass.co, there is this slide bar for job surfers to select the desired salary range. Make sure to make full use of it to ease your job hunt.

5. Identify the difference between recruiter jobs and company direct jobs

To put it simply, recruiter jobs are jobs that are provided by a job agency, and company direct jobs are jobs that are provided by the company itself.

Another more familiar name of a company direct job is "in-house jobs". The company direct jobs are normally meant for those that seek a permanent career. These jobs are characterised by higher pay, however, the waiting time for the job offer is long. Depending on the company culture and size, the interview process might take as long as a few months. For those that need a stable income, you should apply for company direct jobs.

We have jobs from recruiters and companies directly, make sure you know what you are applying to

For recruiters’ jobs, you will be subcontracted under a company, but you are not considered an employee of the company since your recruiter is the agency that hooked you up with this job. This means you may not be entitled to the full-time/part-time benefits as their "in-house" employees.

However, one good thing about a recruiter's job is the employment process is rather quick. Normally companies seek recruiter companies when they are urgently hiring. For those that want to earn some quick cash, a recruiter's job might be a right fit for you.

One foolproof way to clarify this matter is to directly ask the hiring manager whether they are a job agency or the in-house human resource team of a company.
