So often it seems like when you submit a résumé to a company, either via email or an online application, it’s like sending it into a black hole.
You apply, and you get a response 30 seconds later saying, “Thanks for applying,” and that’s that. You never hear anything again.
What’s happening? You worked so hard to make a good first impression—but maybe you’re doing all the wrong things.
Your résumé is getting thrown out and here’s why.
You Applied for a Job You’re Not Even Remotely Qualified For
We all complain about online application processes that are tedious and annoying, but that doesn’t stop people from applying for jobs they aren’t qualified for.
Sure, there are some times you should apply for a job that is a stretch, but a small stretch and not something you would never be considered for.
It’s not harmless either. If you apply for jobs you’re not qualified for at a company; the recruiter won’t consider you for for jobs you are qualified for.
She’ll know you don’t want this job, you just want a job. Don’t waste your time.
