Career Change: Make Your Shot

It’s never been easier to find and apply for a job

If you have spent any time looking for a job or career lately, you have noticed the number of sites listing open roles: LinkedIn, Indeed, Zip Recruiter, etc., not to mention local sources.

While there has been a noticeable improvement in finding openings, the rest of the process has not changed much and has become worse in some ways.

Is this familiar?

After visiting these job sites for days or weeks, you finally find a listing that interests you. You take the time to freshen up your resume, write a thoughtful cover letter, apply, and then… nothing. You may receive an automated notice, something like, “Thank you for applying… if you meet the requirements, we’ll be in touch.” but it can feel like your application went into the internet abyss. You never receive another response.

Stats:

  • The average posting receives about 250 applications
  • Only 5 make it to an interview
  • Three-quarters of new hires had help from a connection
