Careers With Chris Ling Intl
We’re always on the lookout for new talents and are currently interested in engaging entry level photographers and digital artists. More information on the details linked here.
Our boutique partners need new talents too, they are looking for gown designers and sales personnel. More details linked here.
We have received many applications in the past, and some are rather amusing. So much so that I actually typed out the 3 things not to do when sending in your resume or portfolio. Here, I’ll share them with you:
- If your portfolio exceeds 1mb, consider using a filehosting site (eg. www.yousendit.com) and provide us with the link to download your files. Alternatively, you can also submit your web folio for us to view. Most companies appreciate that you do not send in portfolios sized 20mb or 50mb, our mail servers will reject you automatically.
- For entry level positions, a simple introduction in your email about your interest in joining us is sufficient. Cover letters are necessary for executive and top level positions, but bear it mind to keep it simple. 1000 word essays aren’t recommended as most HR personnel would just go straight to your attachment. Likewise 10 word statements like “Hi heres my resume pls call me back thx : )” does not really put a professional light on yourself.
- Always remember to leave your basic information. Name, age, contact numbers, nationality and residing address. We have received applicants who only listed their names and email addresses along with their work experience. Not knowing if you are male or female, fresh grad or experienced, local or foreign, gives us too little information on whether we can shortlist your application. Furthermore, it would appear rather abrupt to the HR personnel reading it.
