Haven’t been lucky in your job search? Job hunting can be tough, and it isn’t hard to get discouraged with the process when you’ve sent out resumes, had interviews and still haven’t landed a job.
Here are some common reasons you might not be getting hired:
Your cover letter and resume don’t show value to the employer – If your cover letter and resume don’t communicate your suitability for a role, you’re not going to get a job interview. When working on your application, be sure to keep the information relevant and tailored to the specific job you’re applying for. Be specific and detail how you can bring value to the company, as well as what you’ve accomplished in past roles.
You’re making the wrong impression – You only have one time to make a first impression with a potential employer, and showing up late or dressing inappropriately can send off the wrong impression. You also don’t want to appear bored or arrogant in the interview, or ask about salary in your first meeting.
