It is once their resume has been rejected, that a lot of job seekers get an insight in why their job application failed.
Unfortunately this tells them that with some fore thought, they could have figured this out for themselves. Let me help you avoid these common mistakes, and present you some insider suggestions about how to maximise your job application success
Job Application: it is a personnel thing
All job applications do not start with the job seeker, but with the employer. A job is approved inside an organisation through the mix of two forces:
The manager of the team where the job will be fulfilled
This is a significant insight, as it should tell you that the ultimate decision on who is employed is manufactured by that manager, and that the successful job applicant will undoubtedly be considered the most able to deliver the defined business requirements.
The result of these two forces may be the creation of employment description, from which the work advert is derived. Only after the job is approved to this stage, does job application become a personnel process. But not recognising the human beings wholly in the personal exchange – the manager and the successful jobholder – is a key mistake of many job applicants
You as well as your Job Search
A job application starts long before you start reading newspapers, crawling job boards, trudging to the work Centre or chatting to friends. Your job search starts with you, and a clear definition of:
Who and everything you are
What you hence offer
What you need to do/see yourself doing longterm
If you don’t know what you want to do, then any job can do, and hence multiple job application rejection will follow
Job Market testing
Although you now know what you should do, the jobs market may at that time in time not want those exact skills, for the reason that search geography, for the pay level which makes economic sense to you. You need to test that the work market is offering that job at the right pay level, and this is where the real advantage of the jobs board driven job search becomes apparent.
Go to your favourite jobs board, keeping the title/skills consistent and setting the pay level to zero. Then open the geographic search criteria before result shows at least 20 jobs. If you cannot find at least 20 suitable jobs, then your ideal job presently doesn’t exist in the jobs market. Either: get back to stage1 and think about another interim step to your ideal long term job; wait 90 days; or accept constant job application upset.
The second problem at this stage is having too many jobs to apply for. Again, go to your favourite jobs board, and when after completing your desired criteria there are a lot more than 100 job results returned, then go back and more closely define everything you offer an employer/seek next and long term. Falling into any job will do syndrome means that you are not focusing sufficiently in the eyes of the employer on what you can do well/offer, and hence will be rejected.
Although it disappoints me to say this, as a Professional CV Writer if you approach your job search in a specific manner, you don’t actually need a Professional CV. But, for 95% of job applications, you will at some time in the legal and therefore defined HR process need a CV. In today’s world, a one-size fits all CV just won’t allow you to get the required telephone interview: the only real output action required when an employer takes when presented with a good CV.
If like many today you heard a friend or someone in a pub used a free of charge template successfully to get employed, make sure you don’t follow the herd: templates mean you don’t stick out from the crowd. Good Professional CV Writers create engaging 2page documents that produce employers pick up calling, because they communicate that the work applicant gets the desired skills to fit the work description, and show social fit with the organisation/manager. If your template doesn’t, how ever pretty it is or however long your list of hobbies and interests, be prepared to be rejected 밤알바
