Applying for a new job is rarely a fun-filled journey. However, if your search seems to be stalling, our team might be able to help. We understand that roadblocks are common on the road to gainful employment. And our years in recruitment have taught us how to circumvent these obstacles.
Here are some reasons your job search might be stalling along with tips for furthering your career.
Lack of Connections
Many job seekers devote weeks to applying for jobs only to receive few if any responses. If you’re experiencing this problem, the issue might not be your qualifications but an inability to get in the door. Consider turning to your professional network on LinkedIn or Facebook to get an “in” at a desired company. You can also contact a staffing company like Bolder, which boasts personal relationships with many local employers.
Lack of Response in a New Field
Workers looking to make career changes often find themselves waiting around to hear back from recruiters. If you’re trying to enter a new field, you might need to take additional steps in order to be taken seriously by hiring managers. Along with pursuing certifications and other continuing education opportunities, consider talking to a recruiter who can advise you about jobs for which you are qualified.
Poor Interview Skills
If you’re landed multiple interviews but haven’t received any job offers, the issue might be the impression you’re making on hiring managers. After all, the fact you’re being invited for interviews suggests your qualifications are up to snuff. If you aren’t getting job offers, you might need to work on your ability to sell yourself in the room.
