Good Advice from a Career Coach (I AM NOT A COACH - JUST SHARING INFO)

This is WHY you are NOT invited for any job interview!

You respond to job ads all day long but NEVER hear a word back!

Almost every day I hear from clients: "Roland, I constantly apply for jobs, but nothing! What's wrong with me?"

Nothing WRONG with you! When you understand the rules of the job search game, you will be a better player.

These are the main reasons why YOU are not getting invitations for #jobinterviews:

  1. Your CV doesn't tailor for a job, role, industry and sector
  2. Recruiters can't see the value you could bring to the company
  3. You send your CV without a tailored cover letter
  4. You mainly rely on using job boards for your job search
  5. Your CV doesn't pass the Applicant Tracking System due to lack of keywords and document formatting
  6. You are not following up each of your applications
  7. You have no online presence or 'bad online reputation'
  8. You left a bad first-impression during the phone screening
  9. You are not building relationships with HR managers and recruiters
  10. You still believe that simply hitting the 'Apply' button on the screen will be enough

Did I miss anything? Anything you would add?

Do you have any suggestions for learning a prospective employer’s best communication practices in today’s digital realm? Are there new standards evolving in the remote office space such as, best times of day to email supervisors, work communication platforms I could potentially highlight on my resume, etc..? Any help is greatly appreciated!

How soon after sending an application are you to follow up? If there is not contact information other than the email to send the resume, how are you to follow up?

People seem to like telephone interviews but In person, they seem to be scared. They need to try and take it easy.
