Job application Tips
After interviewing nearly 2,000 people, SPEEDHOME has several suggestions for job seekers.

Some job seekers have put up many resumes in order to improve their job search chances, but they are not prepared for the interview. Even the most basic business of the company comes for an interview. They can’t answer the simple question from the interviewer. It is recommended that the employee must do the research, at least google the company’s basic information online, to understand the company’s core business, and explain in the interview why he is suitable for the position.
2. Salary requirements should be reasonable
Many job search websites have listed basic salaries for different job categories, but there are still some job seekers who have no experience and require an excessive salary. There is no other experience to prove their performance. Such people will still be eliminated.
3. No need to be overly nervous, practice many times before the interview
Some job seekers interview due to excessive tension during the interview process. If your interview is a job that has to face the client, the stress of over-reading will be greatly reduced in front of the interviewer. Before the interview, list some questions that the interviewer may ask. Practice in advance so that you don’t feel too nervous.
4. Don’t criticize your previous company
