It is only once their job application has been rejected, that a lot of job seekers get an insight in why their resume failed.
Unfortunately this tells them that with some fore thought, they could have figured this out for themselves. Let me assist you to avoid these common mistakes, and present you some insider advice on how to maximise your job application success
Job Application: it is a personnel thing
All job applications do not start with the work seeker, but with the employer. Employment is approved in a organisation through the combination of two forces:
The manager of the team in which the job will be fulfilled
This is an important insight, as it should let you know that the ultimate decision on who is employed is made by that manager, and that the successful job applicant will be considered the most in a position to deliver the defined business requirements.
The result of these two forces may be the creation of a job description, from which the work advert is derived. Only following the job is approved to the stage, does job application turn into a personnel process. But not recognising the human beings wholly in the personal exchange – the manager and the successful jobholder – is really a key mistake of many job applicants
You and Your Job Search
A job application starts long before you start reading newspapers, crawling job boards, trudging to the Job Centre or chatting to friends. Your job search starts with you, and an obvious definition of:
Who and what you are
What you hence offer
What you want to do/see yourself doing long term
If you don’t know very well what you should do, then any job can do, and hence multiple job application rejection will follow
Job Market testing
Although you now know very well what you want to do, the jobs market may at that point in time not want those exact skills, in that search geography, for the pay level which makes economic sense to you. It is advisable to test that the work market is offering that job at the proper pay level, which is where the real benefit of the jobs board driven job search becomes apparent.
Head 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 can’t find at least 20 suitable jobs, then your ideal job presently doesn’t exist in the jobs market. Either: go back to stage1 and think about another interim step to your ideal longterm job; wait three months; or accept constant resume upset.
The second problem at this time is having way too many jobs to use for. 호빠 Again, head to your favourite jobs board, and if after filling in your desired criteria you can find 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 can 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 particular manner, you don’t actually need a specialist CV. But, for 95% of job applications, you’ll at some point in the legal and hence defined HR process need a CV. In the modern world, a one-size fits all CV just won’t get you 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 pal or someone in a pub used a free template successfully to obtain employed, ensure you don’t follow the herd: templates mean you do not stick out from the crowd. Good Professional CV Writers create engaging 2page documents that produce employers pick up the telephone, because they communicate that the work applicant has the desired skills to fit the job description, and show social match 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
