For many of us, submitting a job application and getting no response from an employer is worse than getting their application rejected outright. Was there a technical error? Did my submission accidentally get lost? Did aliens intercept it?
Sometimes companies post job openings as a formality, despite already having an internal candidate in mind for the position, says Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter, executive writer and owner of Dallas-based coaching firm Career Trend. Thus, the importance of applying as soon as you see a job you like.
This frequently occurs when an employer receives hundreds of applications for a position but only has one person reviewing them. Job postings often state what candidates have to submit with their application. Applicants should follow these instructions to the letter, says job search and social media coach Miriam Salpeter. So if an application requires three writing samples and you only supply one, guess what? The upshot? Today, many employers use application tracking systems ATS to vet job applications.
These software programs screen s by searching for certain keywords, which typically appear in the job posting. To pass this initial test, use the job ad as a guide. The ATS will pick up on the phrase and realize it matches up with the job description. This one tends to be the bitterest pill to swallow. Or there was someone who was an even better match than you were.
