📢 Are you feeling overwhelmed and frustrated with the job search process? 🤔 Don't worry; you're not alone! Job hunting can be quite challenging, and it's not uncommon to encounter various struggles along the way. Let's dive into some of the common hardships job seekers face and how to overcome them. 🔍💼

1️⃣ Competitive job market: In today's highly competitive landscape, finding the right job can be tough. With numerous qualified candidates vying for limited positions, it's essential to stand out from the crowd. Tailor your resume, emphasize relevant skills, and showcase your unique qualities to make a lasting impression.

2️⃣ Lack of experience: Many job seekers face the classic dilemma of needing experience to get a job and a job to gain experience. Internships, volunteering, and freelance work can be excellent opportunities to gain practical skills and enhance your resume. Additionally, highlight transferable skills acquired from previous roles to demonstrate your adaptability.

3️⃣ Unclear career goals: Identifying your career aspirations can be challenging, especially when there are multiple paths to choose from. Take the time for self-reflection and research different industries and job roles. Networking and informational interviews can provide valuable insights and help you clarify your goals.

4️⃣ Applicant tracking systems (ATS): Many companies employ ATS software to streamline the hiring process. However, this means your resume might first be screened by a machine before reaching human eyes. To increase your chances of passing the ATS, use relevant keywords from the job description and keep your formatting simple and easy to read.

5️⃣ Lack of network: Building a professional network is crucial for finding job opportunities. Attend industry events, join online communities, and reach out to connections for informational interviews. Networking can lead to referrals and hidden job openings that aren't publicly advertised.

6️⃣ Emotional toll: Constant rejection and the waiting game can take a toll on your emotional well-being. Remember that setbacks are a natural part of the job search process, and it's essential to stay positive and maintain a healthy work-life balance. Seek support from friends, family, or career coaches to keep your spirits up.

7️⃣ Limited job market: Depending on your location or industry, you might encounter a limited job market, making it harder to find suitable positions. Consider expanding your search to nearby cities or exploring remote work options. Additionally, acquiring new skills through online courses can make you a more competitive candidate.

Remember, perseverance and a strategic approach are key to navigating the challenges of job searching successfully. Keep refining your resume, honing your interview skills, and never stop learning and growing. The right opportunity will come your way sooner than you think! 🌟👩‍💼👨‍💼

#ATS related #tip: Optimize your file name!

When saving your resume, use a file name that includes your name and the position you're applying for. For example, "John_Doe_Resume_Project_Manager.docx". This makes it easier for the ATS and recruiters to identify your resume, among other files. Do you do this? #jobsearch #application #resume #interview

ATS significa "Applicant Tracking System" en inglés, que traducido al español sería "Sistema de Seguimiento de Solicitantes". Es como una especie de computadora inteligente que ayuda a las empresas a organizar y manejar todas las solicitudes de trabajo que reciben cuando buscan contratar a alguien nuevo. El ATS es como una máquina que recibe todas las solicitudes de trabajo y las guarda en un lugar seguro. Luego, analiza la información de cada solicitud, como el nombre, la experiencia laboral y la educación, y la organiza en una base de datos. Después, cuando las empresas quieren buscar a alguien con ciertas habilidades o experiencia, el ATS les ayuda a encontrar a los candidatos adecuados. La máquina hace esto buscando palabras clave en las solicitudes que coincidan con los requisitos del trabajo. Por ejemplo, si la empresa necesita a alguien que sepa programar, el ATS buscará en las solicitudes las palabras "programación" o "programador". Quédate pendiente para tips de cómo mejorar tu CV. #jobsearch #advice #application #ATS #CV #Latinx

Something I learned at #ATS ,Angstrom Tubular solution ...

ATS could be a good job plant manager Johnny Lehman isn't a very professional person and looks down on his workers you get treated like crap I management they don't pay you enough to put up with things like that there's a position in there that will literally blister your fingers if they don't care they're not the ones you have to do it keep that in mind like I said it could be a good place to work but you got to work where management will actually care about you and know you're worth if they don't care about your work probably not a good place to work would I go back to ATS if they paid more and fired Johnny Lehman and a few other staff members for management then it might be worth going back to but at its current status they can barely run a first shift because they can't keep people like I said they treat you like crap

This is not an ad nor am I paid to say this, but I started using a website (skillsyncer.com) to help me align my resume with the job description so that when it's scanned by the application system I'm applying to, I rank high and in turn, get looked at by the hiring manager.

I was using JobScan.com for this but they're pricey. SkillSyncer.com is $14.95 for 3 months. I think JobScan was more like $50/mo. for the same service.

The way it works is, you paste the job description in one block and your resume in the other one and their system scans it and spits out a score. From there, it tells you what words you need to add to your resume to rank higher.

Most of the time, I can think of a place to put the word needed. Occasionally tho, I simply add it to a section of my resume I call "Relevant Skills & Proficiencies" which is an easier place to stick it. But what I've noticed has happened is, because I'm forced to think about certain skills and think of a job where I've done that, I've found that I have way more experience than I had originally shared on my resume. Things I take for granted are now on my resume making me look like a better qualified candidate.

Sometimes it takes me a couple of hours to get me above 90%, other times I can do it in 15 minutes. But I can say it works because I have been getting responses from real people. I've only been using SkillSyncer for about a week now (I used JobScan for about 3 months).

My industry is overflowing with candidates so for me, it's worth the time and money to improve my resume. There may be a coupon code for it, I haven't looked.

Let me know if anyone has any questions about this. Happy to share my experience and tips.

Now that I am back on the job market, I have increased my job source from weekly to daily. In addition to Jobcase, I use Zip Recruiter & Indeed.

I need to be productive, and I want a position that pairs well with my skill set. What does that look like, you say? I worked not for profit for 8- years, the longest I have ever stayed at any organization. Next is real estate, now concierge/customer service. Before them, I was in beauty, modeling, acting, and management. In a way, the three are Ven diagram worthy. I am an artist at heart and enjoy helping others. I also appreciate my autonomy and ability to work independently.

My tech skills are Excellent MS Office skills (Excel, Word, PowerPoint), Mac OS, Vector, Case Trakker, SDS, QNEXT, Payspan, Dayforce, Bria, 8x8, Salesforce, and work hybrid and fully remote ready-- Verizon Fios.

Soft Skills are autonomy, communication, creativity, empathy, constructive criticism, openness to constructive criticism, openness to constructive criticism, organization, patience, problem-solving, teamwork, and resourcefulness.

Hard skills are analytical skills, Associates in Business, computer skills, credits to be completed BS in industrial-organizational psychology, Microsoft Office, Outlook, Software, and typing 65 WPM.

Overall, I can articulate a product or service diplomatically and professionally to meet the needs of members or customers with diplomacy and empathy.

My resume is once again circulating through ATR systems for a hit. All of us out here are doing the damn thing despite the stumbles, success to you, and keep it pushing!

ATS is a company that to my opinion, very unfair. I was exposed to covid on my own time, took the test at ATS direction and tested negative. ATS informed me to take another test and return back to work, at which time I was informed by the hospital I had pneumonia. ATS let me go because I didn't report back to work, though the hospital told me to stay home.

Are you applying to job after job with no responses, or even worse, you get immediately rejected? If so, it's time to update your resume.

If you are applying for a job online, an Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) is immediately vetting your application. Follow these steps if you want to #BeatTheMachines.

  1. Keywords are the key - Look for the skills that come up more than once in a job description, paying particular attention to keywords mentioned near the top of the job requirements and job duties. Make sure these words are in your resume.

  2. Tie keywords to your accomplishments - Your resume should include examples of past successes and achievements. This is where you use the keywords.

  3. Keep things simple and standard - ATS systems love standard, easy-to-read resumes. Microsoft Word documents (in .doc or .docx format) are the most ATS friendly document to use. Use this resume template to beat the machines.

  4. Spell out abbreviations - The machines don't like acronyms.

  5. Always check your spelling - The machines spellcheck, so you'd better too.
