The All Too Familiar Way of Not Landing an Interview
You probably know the link that every company provides for online applications. It’s the classic career site that shows you a bunch of job titles which you think you are totally qualified for until you open the job description and read the minimum requirements.
A job description with a bunch of words that you have never heard of, may have heard of, or hoped you had heard of. And it has an innocent-looking “Apply” button.
Despite the uncertainty you may feel about your qualifications, you apply anyway because you want a job.
So you fill out the application form, press submit — and wait and hope for a positive response.
Your results will be varied:
- Phone Interview 🎉 (yay, a chance at employment!!!)
- Immediate Rejection 😢 (darn, back to the drawing board)
- No reply 😞 (gosh, at least give me the courtesy of having some closure)
