You have a CV? Great, but what sort of response are you getting from your applications? If you are not getting the results you anticipated, especially if you felt pretty confident when you clicked the ‘submit’ button to send your application away, then getting a negative response, or no response at all can lead to frustration and disappointment!
Especially since it can take hours of your precious time preparing for the application.
What is Going On?
If you are applying for work with major brands and large companies who very likely handle thousands of applications each week, or if you are uploading your CV to a job board, the chances are that your CV is not going direct to another person. It is very likely that your CV is being scanned for keywords and phrases by pretty cutting-edge software that ensures only the most appropriate applications are filtered through to the recruiter.
While this saves a lot of time and money for businesses, it could mean that, unless you can speak the same language as this software, and fully understand how to tailor your application to meet the strict criteria of the job description specifications, your application may just not get through to the next stage – even though you may be ideal for the job!
