There are a lot of easy ways to get a job nowadays, and several online databases and job search sites like www.jobtonic.com, that allow you to search for any kind of job online without leaving the comfort of your home. What these sites don’t do is getting you ready to land the position if you ever get interviewed or even considered to fill in the vacancy, and that’s what we’ll try to do by showing you fifteen different reasons on why recruiters will reject you.
Applying to Jobs you’re not qualified for:
Don’t waste your reviewer’s time by applying to a job vacancy you’re not able to meet with excellence, even if it would be given to you – it would harm you on the long run.
Lying on the Qualifications:
Don’t make up formations and courses to include them on your resumé… believe it or not, good reviewers check it!
Asking about the Salary too soon:
If you focus too much on the money, you show you have no passion over the position or the company you’re applying to.
Failure to prove experience:
If you can’t prove you have that experience, then you didn’t! People lie on their resumés, so reviewers have to be careful about it.
Contacting too much:
Some job hunters advise people to keep contacting and that’s great – just don’t overdo it and risk your chances.
Inappropriate social media profiles:
Reviewers will browse your social profiles; make sure they are ready to be seen!
Saying bad things about former employer:
If you bad mouth your former employer, then reviewers will know the same will happen to them!
Being a poor communicator:
Failing to communicate is a capital mistake – do your homework and make sure you know what to say.
Lying about competences:
The same principle on making up qualifications – you win nothing from doing this.
Ignoring the Company:
If you show you don’t know about the company’s history or mission, you just show you don’t care enough.
Being Late for the Interview:
Another sign to tell reviewers you simply don’t care about that job.
Being Unprofessionally Dressed:
Don’t show up looking bad, appearances matter too!
If you’re going for a field work opening, don’t dress your fine suit or people will think you aren’t the type to get the hands dirty.
Nobody likes “smart-guys”. Being confident is not the same as being cocky!
Trying to show about knowing everything:
It’s impossible that you know everything, and the more you talk the less you’ll seem to know – trust us on this!
So, make sure you avoid committing this fifteen mistakes, or you’ll be hurting your chances at a better job.
