Rejection on job applications ? Here are 4 main reasons, why job applications are being rejected by the employer.
1 – You’re not showing that you’re true fit to the job.
This is the biggest reason why you get a rejection from the employer because haven’t done the work of showcasing to them, that your perfect job candidate or you don’t do the work of showing to them that you’re a match for them and how can you possibly expect them to give you a call.
There are 3 key areas where you potentially may not be showing that you’re fit for the job.
a. Resume and CV:
When the resume is lacking a clear strategy when you look at your own resume do you feel that an employer sees that oh my goodness! This person is the exact perfect fit for the job. We have to bring them in for an interview. Or, yeah, maybe, not sure let’s see what else’s out there.
If you see your resume is most likely, yes. Your resume is the “Ticket” that will get you into the door and you don’t know how to write a resume in an attractive way, then your resume is just throughout. Reason for that, because an employer gets hundreds of resumes all the time and you need to make sure that your resume is standouts from the rest.
b. LinkedIn Profile:
This may sound silly but yes, when was the last time that you have uploaded your personal photograph in LinkedIn Profile? Not only be that one recent but also the one which shows you have a bright, energetic and cheerful personality. May recruiter won’t tell you this but that photo on your LinkedIn profile either help to increase or decrease your chances of that getting initial phone call.
The third place is where you likely not showcasing enough, is in your Interviews. So, over the last that a while you might have got called for a couple of interviews here and there but you never got a call back to move forward to the next round. The one major reason is “you’re not telling compelling enough stories in your interviews to the employers”.
How to tell compelling stories in interviews with the employer? Is the key strategy to hooking the employer’s interest in you and getting them to choose you over anyone else who is interviewing? If you want them to give you a job, be sure to tell them the compelling stories.
2. Your job applications are not even being seen in the first place.
Your job applications are not even being seen in the first place. If the only way where you’re applying for the jobs is online job applications and along with you there are hundreds of people who are also applying for job applications. There is a good chance that employers aren’t even looking or seeing your resume.
Few tips to applying to jobs:
- Apply to the freshest jobs strike them when they’re hot.
- Employers are more likely to within the first 1-2 days.
- Reach out to the employer directly.
3. You don’t believe that you’ll be able to get the job you really want.
Deep down somewhere inside you have lost confidence in yourself. You don’t believe that you’re able to get that really attractive job offer you want.
- The lack of belief that you have within yourself is actually what’s causing employers to also have that lack of belief in you. So, be extremely mindful of thoughts that you telling yourself and is how that made you feel. Because, if you want employers to change the mind about you and see you differently, you need to see yourself differently. It all starts with you and ends with you; you need to change the way you feel about yourself. You need to see the values that you can offer to the organization and from there you will be able to express that in the interviews and that’s of belief is going to increase the chance of getting your dream job offer.
4. You don’t have any hint of relevant technical skills or qualifications to do the job.
You need to have relevant skills, experiences and knowledge that can easily translate to the job you want to get into. It doesn’t mean that you have done the exact job before or if you didn’t but you have transferable skills, experiences and knowledge that’s what going to help you increases in getting the job offer.
If you know that you do have transferable skills, knowledge and experiences then, that why you need to highlight not only in a job application but also in interviews. Because that must go into determining whether they are hiring you or not. So, overall go after the positions that you really want to do but make sure they are aligning with the skill set which helps you to get even more.
