It’s frustrating when you have worked hard and succeeded your entire career, only to actively look for a job for the first time in a while, and no one responds.
No one replies back to your submitted application.
No interview calls from your inquiry.
What the heck? (Well, I know you are using stronger language, but I am trying to keep it clean today...)
This is probably one of the most common grievances I hear from experienced job seekers:
“I know I could do the job and I am qualified with the right experience needed to do the job—yet no one calls me for an interview! It’s killing me. What else do I need to do to get noticed?”
The frustration is as real.
There are not many experiences more frustrating as working your whole life to amass a string of achievements together only to have no one care when you put yourself out there.
Well, I care.
I care to tell you that it really may not be your resume or profile content that’s the problem.
The problem may lie in that you are looking in the wrong places and contacting the wrong people... And you may not be contacting people at all!!
If you are submitting mainly through job boards, stop.
Computers don’t hire people.
People hire people.
So reach out to people to get hired.
You need to find the right hiring managers and reach out to them directly.
And you can use LinkedIn to do this.
During my next LIVE, No-Cost "How to Create Your LinkedIn Profile to Generate 6-Figure Job Interviews Faster" Webinar training on Tues. 9/25 or Thurs. 9/27 at 1:30 p.m. ET, I will cover how to find hiring managers, so you can reach out directly to land an interview, and never apply through a job board again.
Job posting boards are not the best at recognizing you are qualified—only people are good at this...
So let me show you how to find the right people who will see you as qualified.
In my free session, you will learn:
- How to never depend on job boards or third party recruiters again to land an interview.
- How to identify the right hiring managers, that won’t be in HR, so you can set up your own interview—cut out the ATS middleman!
- How to get noticed for your qualifications and never feel rejected again.
