4 Reasons why you didn’t get that interview

Just in case you land up in this situation, take into account these reasons as why you didn’t hear back from the employer.

1. The employer never saw your resume.

Before your resume lands up on the employer’s desk, it has to get through the gatekeepers;

An electronic screening service that all the BIG jobs boards use, they call it “an applicant tracking system”.

A junior-level HR coordinator that does not know your job at all.  
All you need to do is revaluate your resume to make sure that it is flawless and dictates the exact story in relation to which both gatekeepers and will distinguish and value.  Address the key factors that are asked for in the job advert.

2. You applied too late.

 An analysis shows that the chances of you receiving a call from the employer have all but gone 72 hours after the job is available online.  

3. Your online brand sold you out.

 93% of employers are bound to gaze at an applicant’s social profile-irrespective of whether an applicant gives that information.  And a staggering 70% of recruiters/employers have changed their view of a candidate because of a candidates social media profile.

4. It’s not you, it’s them.

Even if you think you’re going on the right track, it’s never a given that you will be called for an interview. This may happen due to countless factors. Maybe the job description doesn’t fully explain the role, or other candidates have used their connections to gain an inside track on the position.

 No matter what the case is, understand that sometimes the fortune of your application is really not in your hands. Use your networks, that’s what we built the Job Seeker Network.
