(And How to Change That)
Here's Why You're Not Getting Hired
Job searching can be a long process that requires a lot of patience.
If you have been applying for new jobs without any luck, you can’t help but wonder why you're not getting hired.
There are numerous possibilities as to why you can’t find a job.
The good news is there are also things you can do to fix them and improve your chances of getting hired.
Your resume has to be scannable to people and computer software.
Check for errors
such as typos, spelling mistakes, grammatical mistakes, or bad formatting.
Your Resume & Cover Letter Need Work
You don’t need to be 100% qualified for every job, but you need to meet the minimum qualifications.
Otherwise, you're wasting your time and will feel rejected.
You're Applying to the Wrong Jobs
Stop only applying for jobs that are posted online - there’s a whole hidden job market out there.
Not every job vacancy gets posted on Indeed.
You're Making Mistakes with Your Search
Show employers why they need to hire you.
Think of your strengths and how these will support the business, and put them on your resume.
The labor market is constantly changing.
Your skills may no longer be sufficient for the roles you want.
Consider taking an online class or volunteering!
You Don't Have the Right Skills
You can use social media, join a professional networking group, or just start talking to people and let them know you’re looking
You Don't Have Network Connections
Nowadays, it’s rare for someone to stick with one job or one company throughout their career, but changing jobs every
6 months looks bad
on a resume.
You Look Like
a Job Hopper
Job interviews are sort of an art form.
The best way to overcome those job interview nerves is to practice, practice, practice!
You Suck at Job Interviews
Make sure you’re using the right people as references.
If the problem is you don’t have any references to give,
you need to find 3-4 people and ask them.
You Have Bad
(or None at All)
Employers aren’t going to chase you down.
You need to follow up with job leads, potential networking connections, and with employers after applying and interviewing for a job.
You Aren't Following-Up
why no one is
you & how
to fix it!
