4 Reasons Why Recruiters Never Call You Back After Job Application

You've recognized a splendid looking job on the web. Incredible area, extraordinary pay, fascinating part. All excited, you transfer your CV, hit send, and sit back, longing for the interview you know you'll get (and expert), just about tasting that offer letter overflowing with an enormous pay climb.4 Reasons Why Recruiters Never Call You Back After Job Interview

A week passes by. Two weeks. Three weeks. A month. You never hear back.


Shockingly, this is very common for jobseekers, so here are six reasons why you never heard back.

1. Ugly CV

We composed an incredible article about designing your CV for greatest effect. CV writing is an expertise that is hard to master; that is the reason CV writing services exist. Your CV is a promoting archive to offer yourself. An unmistakable, decently organized CV helps: in the event that it isn't anything but difficult to read, it won't get read. On the off chance that you battle composing it, it merits paying an expert – a minor cost that could bring about a tremendous pay-off.

How To Showcase Your Experience And Get A Job

2. Skills to pay the bills

You know you can carry out the employment with two hands tied behind your back, suspended upside down in a water tank. I don't, unless you let me know. Make no presumptions. You know you're a Software Engineer with 5 years experience of PHP development, yet in the event that you don't let me know unequivocally, hands tied behind your back.

As a Technical Recruiter, I've seen excessively numerous CVs where the applicant never specifies what technologies they utilize. My inclination is to address applicants where I can promptly see that they are a solid match for the part. I most likely will get the telephone for a visit to an applicant who hasn't recorded their skills, however it won't be my top need when I have 3 extraordinary CVs that I am pursuing.


3. Mistakes on CVs

Each applicant puts 'meticulousness' in their CV. Yet those same CVs contain spelling and sentence grammar error and different blunders. "Slip-ups on CVs" is frequently recorded as the number 1 reason hiring managers dismiss an application. Utilizing a recruiter helps because they proof-read and edit your CV, yet botches additionally disappoint us. On a related note, applying to a job that isn’t relevant fails to show attention to detail. Click the link for more Dangerous CV Mistakes.

You've seen the employment title (e.g. Project Manager) and hit apply without appropriately reading the advert. Lamentably, you're a development Project Manager applying to an IT Project Manager position driving Agile advanced undertakings – not gonna happen. Perused the advert carefully to guarantee that the role is suitable for you. On the off chance that it isn't, you're unrealistic to hear back.

4. You’re just not quite right

Your CV’s OK, your skills are OK, your experience is OK… You’re just not quite right. There’s no exciting feeling looking at your CV that you’ll be my next placement, so your application goes nowhere. This isn’t your fault; it’s the gut feeling of the hiring manager or recruiter. It isn’t fair on you, but with fifty CVs awaiting review, yours is put down, forgotten.
