until you have drank Yamazaki 50, you're a nothing burger ok? btw, if you need to google, you obviously have been drinking cheap alcohol all your life.
Alcohol is poor man water la. Alcohol is invented for poor people to relax after hard labor.
Rich ppl don't drink. They inhale other euphoric stuff

You do know that unless you compare extremes at either end for cheap/****ing ex alcohol, there's v little difference between a mid-range liquor and a high-range one in the thousands?

People don't buy ****ing ex alcohol because they know how to drink. They buy ****ing ex alcohol, and then brag about it anonymously online like yourself because they have such small weiners they need to throw money at alcohol that they'll sip/drink just as fast as a typical liquor costing a couple hundred bucks at best.

bruh how did the thread get derailed to this extent?

Anyway, this advice is cliche as fk but please... WORK ON YOUR RESUME.

Your resume really matters if you want to catch HR's eyes when they are sifting applicants. Make it look good (visually) and really flesh out your best points. Nothing to say also make sure got something to say. And keep it to 1 page to hold their attn.

Yup! I graduated 2019, was hovering between unemployment/ contract / shitty jobs for a few months...kept applying for public service sector but was going nowhere. After one of the shitty jobs i decided there was probably something wrong w my resume and went to work on it. started sending out my applications at [email protected] and it i started getting a lot of successful applications! In that 1 month alone i got about 5 calls for interviews and assessments, and im happy to say i clinched one early this year in March

Using my experience as a point of reference, i can say the resume really turned things around for me. I stopped using the boring white templates on microsoft word (lol) and went to change up the aesthetics. Euphemisms also matter la. For example instd of "customer service" say "front line professional". Just flesh out your skills and catfish a bit.

It also depends on your industry and your accomplishments. My sent resume and cover letter to be reviewed and edited by professional HR freelancers (even tailored for CV AI to pick up keywords), but because my industry was in a hiring slump and I'm not a FCH, I didn't see much results between my old and new CV.
