    Hi Admin.

    I am currently doing Office Management & technology & in my final level. I am in need of a job badly, I do have an experience in administration and sales, Applying via job mail is interesting and easy @ the same time but companies are in need of higher experience on the field I’am seeking for and most on the email replys I get they need my documents including my photo on them of which is confusing me at times, why do they need a photo in Personal Assistant/Secretary jobs?
    Lastly please check my CV on my jobmail profile.

    I will be waiting for your response promptly. Thanks in advance.

      Hey Cindy, thanks for your time and feedback. Usually (almost always) companies have set a certain standard that they want to keep, that is why they want people with experience. Experience is however the best form of learning. What I suggest is that you have a look at more entry level vacancies or even just for another position in the same company. From there on you can work your way up.

      As for companies wanting you to send a photo with your CV; take in mind the position that you are applying for. Most companies regard front desk people the face of the company. The more presentable the front desk person the more positive clients perceive the image of the company. Remember, first impressions last.

      I did in fact have a look at your CV and saw that it is about 64% complete. Log in to your account and there you will see the “Improve your CV” button. Click on it and follow the suggestions. Best would be to complete your CV to about 80%.

    I have been using Jobmail in two ways, via the internet and newspaper as well to search for a job. I am still battling to find a job. I have Admin experience and I also have a training certificate but still I can’t find a job. It’s been two years now and the following year would be my third year being a job seeker. I don’t know what to do now as I am running out of options. Please help

      Hi Tumi, thanks for your feedback. The best is to not loose any hope. I would also suggest that you register your CV on Job Mail.. If you have not registered your CV on Job Mail yet, visit Make sure that your CV on Job Mail is 100% complete, then you’ll have a much better chance of recruiters finding you. Look for Jobs that you need on your cell phone or on your PC and apply for them. Search for “Gardener”, “Cashier” “Driver”, “Internship”, “Learnership” (or any other keyword) to find relevant jobs on Job Mail. If you don’t have experience and you are struggling to find a job in your field, check out the Part Time / Temp category on Job Mail for jobs that you can do while you are finding the job that you need. You can filter your job search via region and category on the Job Mail website / mobile site as well. Good luck with finding the jobs you need Be Pro-Active! If you’ve applied for a position and no one contacts you back, phone the employer / recruiter and inquire about the status of your application

    Hi, I’ve updated my profile and deleted the current cv that was uploaded. I then uploaded the new cv but when I go back to my dashboard to view the newly uploaded cv it is still the old CV that pops back on with all the old info and it displays only the first 2 pages with faults added by the system that is not on the original CV. Please help!!
