It is only once their resume has been rejected, that most job hunters get an insight in why their resume failed.

Unfortunately this tells them that with some fore thought, they might 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 inside an organisation through the mix of two forces:

Business need
The manager of the team where the job will be fulfilled
This is a significant insight, as it should tell you that the final 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 is 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 several job applicants

You and Your Job Search

A job application starts a long time before you start reading newspapers, crawling job boards, trudging to the Job Centre or chatting to friends. Your task 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 long term
If you don’t know very well what you want to do, then any job will do, and hence multiple resume rejection will follow

Job Market testing

Although you now know very well what you want to do, the jobs market may at that time in time not need those exact skills, for the reason that search geography, for the pay level which makes economic sense to you. You must test that the work market offers that job at the proper pay level, and this is where the real benefit of the jobs board driven job search becomes apparent.

호빠 Head to your favourite jobs board, keeping the title/skills consistent and setting the pay level to zero. Then open the geographic search criteria until the 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 longterm job; wait three months; or accept constant resume upset.

The second problem at this stage is having way too many jobs to apply for. Again, go to your favourite jobs board, and when after filling in your desired criteria you can find a lot more than 100 job results returned, then go back and more closely define what you offer an employer/seek next and longterm. 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 therefore will be rejected.

Professional CV

Although it disappoints me to say it, as a Professional CV Writer if you approach your job search in a particular manner, you don’t absolutely need a Professional CV. But, for 95% of job applications, you will at some point in the legal and therefore defined HR process require 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 output action required when an employer takes when offered a good CV.

If like many today you heard a pal or someone in a pub used a free template successfully to obtain employed, be 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 has the desired skills to fit the job 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
