Reason’s you are ignored for interviews


People often wonder why they never hear anything back after they apply for jobs. You might have a preliminary email exchange with a recruiter and then never hear from them again.  With recruiters, they need a candidate, but want a great candidate. With job seekers, we need a job, but want the job of our dreams. There are many reasons  you are ignored for interviews

Your resume is uninteresting and universal.

For every job there must be 50-60 applicant. To compete with all those applicants your resume must be uncommon and relevant. Employers large and small now use applicant tracking software to parse the information from your resume and map it into a database i.e. application tracking system. For this your resume must be optimized.

Your resume is not keyword optimized.

You have not given relevant keywords while applying for jobs in Career Website’s. Job descriptions are salted with keywords specific to the skills or attributes the company seeks in applicants. If your Resume is not relevant employer may never find you in there database. This can be the reason to miss your job opportunity

Your resume is different from your online profile.

Check your Social media accounts your resume and your social media profiles are not same LinkedIn, Dice and other online profile sites can be useful tools, so it’s important to make sure they match what’s on your resume

You Did Not Follow Up

Recruiters are very busy and tend to forget very quickly. It is no fault of their own, but rather because they are speaking with so many people each day. In order to stand out from the crowd, you need to follow up from any interaction you have with a recruiter.

The company received 300 or more resumes for job posting, and yours was 299th.
Looking for a job is a job. Do your research — know which companies you want to work for, organizations where you sense a culture fit. Every morning scour the job postings and jump on anything for which you’re qualified (and in which you’re interested.) Being early with your resume or application does matter. Check back often in the first few days to make sure the listing hasn’t changed. Often a company will post a job and halfway through the process change the description.
