Job seeker FAQs

  1. How do I sign up as a job seeker?

Signing up is free at Special Jobs. Go to www.specialjobs.com.my, click on the sign up button, choose job seeker as the account type and provide us with your full name, email address and a password for your account. We also recommend that you don’t use your company email address as you will need access to this account with the email address provided after you have moved on from your current company

     2. How would I get employers to notice me?

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll be prompted to create a resume profile. As a minimum fill out the mandatory fields and click preview to see how it looks, once you’re happy with it you can go ahead and post your resume. The more information and details (such as a softcopy of your resume, scanned copies of your certificates, scanned copy of OKU card etc.) you provide in your resume, should you apply for a job would definitely improve your chances of getting a positive response from employers.

By checking the “Let Employers Find My Resume” checkbox, your resume becomes searchable and by unchecking it can only be accessed by employers whose job postings you have applied for. Please note, if you were to hide your resume, it will not only be unsearchable but it cannot be viewed by any employer.

    3. What else can I do with my account?

You’d be able to edit your resume in “My Resume”, view all your job applications that you’ve made in “My Applications” and manage your registered email address as well as password in “Account Settings”.

  4.  How can I apply for a job?

Besides the latest jobs listed on the home page, you can type in keywords such as locations in the search box and browse jobs by specialisations, position levels and job type. Upon finding a job that interests you and you meet the requirements, you can immediately apply for the job by first logging in to your account.  Once logged in, click the “Apply Now” button within the job post. In the pop-up box that opens, ensure your name and email address is correct then write a concise note to the employer that gives you the opportunity to stand out from other applicants during the shortlisting process and click submit.

5.  Can I receive alerts about latest jobs that are relevant to the details listed in my  resume?

All you have to do is to navigate to our home page and go to the “Sign up for job alerts” section and leave your email with us or alternatively click on the “Email me jobs like this” button whenever you perform a job search.

Fraudulent postings

Beware of false job postings that get listed online from time to time by dishonest people. The placement of such false job postings is a violation of our Terms of Use. Here are some important tips to use when dealing with prospective employers.

Be wary of:

  • A job posting that asks for your credit card or bank information, or attempts to engage in any monetary transaction before processing your application.
  • Offers made to you that are unrelated to the job advertised. This would include attempting to sell you products such as insurance, investment plans, multi-level marketing, etc.

Reporting fraud

Special Jobs is dedicated to eliminate employment barriers and to bridge the gap between job seekers with special needs and the employers who want to hire them.  If you see a questionable job posting or any potential misuse of our services, please report the suspected fraud to us via our “Contact Us” form and we will investigate accordingly.
