18 Possibilities & How to Easily Fix Them

Why Won’t Anyone Hire Me?!

Job searching can be a long process that requires a lot of patience.

If you have been applying without any luck, you can’t help but wonder, “why won’t anyone hire me?”

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 both to the human eye and to the computer software. Check for errors  such as typos, spelling mistakes, grammatical mistakes, or bad formatting.

Your Resume & Cover Letter Need Work

Stop only applying for jobs that are posted online when there’s a whole hidden job market out there. Stop only applying for a job if you meet 100% of the qualifications

You're Making Mistakes with Your Search

While you don’t need to be 100% qualified for every job you apply to, you do need to meet the minimum qualifications. Otherwise, this is just a waste of time and adds to that feeling of rejection.

You're Applying to the Wrong Jobs

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.

You Don't  Stand Out 

The labor market is constantly changing. Your skills or experience may no longer be sufficient for the roles you’re interested in. Consider taking an online class or volunteering!

You Don't Have the Right Skills or Experience 

You can use social media, join a professional networking group, or  just start talking to people and let them know you’re looking  for work.

You Don't Have Network Connections

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

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

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

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 References (or None at All)
