Why you might feel like you are going round in circles with your applications.
You may wonder why you never hear back from anyone after hitting the send button on applications. You can think am I the problem or is it them?
It is just something that every candidate has to prepare for.
Keep reading to find out why.
Unfortunately, you may not be qualified for the role. Most job specifications will name what they are looking for. Therefore, make sure you read the advert thoroughly to get a good understanding of what the employer requires.
Don’t waste your time applying for a role that you know you aren’t qualified for.
Job descriptions are filled with keywords that should also be in your CV and application.
Employers and recruiters only spend on average between 5-7 seconds reviewing a CV, they will be looking for these keywords.
This is a good way of making sure your CV stands out from the rest.
What you can do:
1.Follow recruiters on social media because they will be posting new opportunities so apply for anything that you are qualified for.
2.Consider starting a blog about your interests or expertise in your chosen profession. Include the blog and links to any relevant posts in your emails to recruiters and employers.
3.Do not wait until you are out of work to find a job. Your best chance of finding a job is when you are still employed.
If you do not hear, back from your application do not take it personally. Instead of feeling as if you have been rejected, you can take the time to reflect. Feel free to chat with a consultant at PATH when you are next talking to us.
