I always hear a common frustrating sentence from job seekers: ' I keep applying for jobs and getting no response.' Or ‘I can't find a job, and I need money.’
You have spent tons of time applying, but no result. You don’t know why it’s happening to you? I understand your state of mind. But relax, dear. Just be sure you are not making any following mistakes.
Why do I keep applying for jobs and getting no response?
As I guess before, you’ve probably already spent some time on the Internet applying for jobs. But no interview calls and you’re saying, ‘why do I keep applying for jobs and getting no response.’ So sad.
You may be getting interviews—but not the right ones. Or you may be getting plenty of interviews—but no offers and may be you’re saying, ‘I can’t find a job, and I need money.’
If you’re frustrated with your job search, it’s time to turn the tables.
Everything has a strategy. Job searching is not an exception. You have to follow the employer strategy. Now, what’s that?
For example, you are submitting applications randomly and blindly. You are not doing any job research, just submitting job applications randomly-completely wrong strategy.
Your strategy should be:
---- Apply for those job posts that interest you and match your skills and align with your passion.
--- Tailor your applications according to the organization and job description and then apply.
Targeting your dream employers is the most effective strategy to get the appropriate job for you. Cheers.
You don’t have a LinkedIn profile
If you don’t have a LinkedIn profile, it’s a negative side in the eye of an employer.
Assume you are an employer. You have narrowed down two candidates in your hiring process, but you have to choose one. You have checked both candidates’ LinkedIn profiles. You found one candidate’s profile has:
Full of connections
Packed with accomplishments
Rich work history
Excellent personal story
The other profile has:
No connections or very few connections
Very few contents
As an employer, which candidate will you choose? No doubt, first candidate.
LinkedIn profile is a tool of the hiring process. Maximum employers generally check LinkedIn profiles for their hiring process.
You probably, don’t have a LinkedIn profile or an organized profile, but you are always saying, 'why do I keep applying for jobs and getting no response.' Or ‘I can't find a job, and I need money.’
If you don't follow the standard resume format, don't expect to get interview calls from the hiring managers.
Lack of qualification and skills
Maybe you think you are qualified enough and have the required skills for the job posts, but the employers may think you don’t have those after reading your resume.
Don’t be upset, dear.
But sometimes it can be a reason, but you still didn’t understand the problems. You are just asking others why I keep applying for jobs and getting no response.
Read the job descriptions carefully and identify what specific certifications are required for the post and ask yourself, ‘do I have relevant skills for the post?’
If not, STOP applying and achieve those related skills and certification and then apply.
Some stupid reasons you are not getting any response
My dear readers, did you ever check your email spam folder? Are you sure the employers are not contacting you?
It can be that they are communicating with you, but you are not aware of that. Yes, it may happen to you.
So please, regularly check your email spam folder or junk folders. You think the hiring managers are not in contacting you, but the reality is they have already reached you, but those emails have gone to spam folders, and you are not aware of that. So sad.
Sometimes, it is hard to find the contact details on some resumes. Employers do not find the contact details easily.
Is this the same case are happening with you? If this is the thing, rectify it immediately.
Let’s talk about another scenario. The company tried to reach out. They call you, but it goes to voicemail, and your voice mailbox is full.
That means your hiring manager is trying to leave a voice message but fails to leave because your mailbox is full.
If this is the matter, please don’t tell anyone, ‘why am I not getting interviews?’
Finding a job is hard. Please do not make it harder by yourself. Pay close attention to my discussion today. You don’t have to say anymore, 'I keep applying for jobs and getting no response.’
