5 Common Job Search Mistakes To Avoid

Common Job Search Mistakes To Avoid

Mistake #1: Applying For Everything

More doesn’t always mean better, this may result in more time wasted than it will benefit you.

Know what you want so you can narrow down your search to save your time and energy.

Mistake #2: Sending The Same Resume To All Jobs

There is never one size fits all resumes. Employers will likely spot it immediately and put it in the reject section.

Tailor your resume to match the qualifications of the job description. This shows the hiring manager why you’re perfect for the job!

Mistake #3: Not Tracking Your Job Search

Have you ever applied to a job and a few weeks later received a call and not remember what you applied for?

Use job tracker platform like Stipplo to keep track of your applications and all its activities to avoid simple mistakes. This will help better prepare for your interviews too.

Mistake #4: Didn’t Follow Up With Interviewer/Recruiter

Following up after a job interview gives you one more chance to make a good impression.

3After every interview, always send a thank you note. People like to be appreciated and a quick thank you note is a good way to show you appreciate the time and the opportunity.

Mistake #5: You Haven’t Researched The Company

If the interviewer asks you “What do you know about our company?” and your response is a blank stare, you probably won’t get the job.

Research the company before the interview. This will show them that you understand the company mission and your ability to take action on your own.
