Have you ever applied for a job and been rejected, only to wonder what went wrong? It’s a frustrating experience, but it’s more common than you might think. Many qualified applicants are overlooked for a variety of reasons, such as busy HR departments, generic CVs, and an overwhelming volume of applications.
Jeanett and I have helped several candidates land permanent roles with clients who had previously rejected them. By discussing the reasons for the initial rejection with our clients, we were able to identify common issues that had led to these applicants being overlooked.
One of the biggest challenges facing HR departments today is the sheer number of applications they receive. With so many candidates to consider, it’s easy for qualified applicants to slip through the cracks. Additionally, some applicants may not present themselves in the best possible light on paper, whether it’s due to using a generic CV or a lack of knowledge on how to showcase their skills effectively.
This is where a good recruiter can make all the difference. We take the time to carefully review every CV we receive and follow up with each applicant to learn more about their experience and qualifications. We also invite them in for an informal interview, where we can get a better sense of their personality and work style.
By taking these extra steps, we ensure that no qualified applicant gets overlooked. We also work with candidates to help them adjust their CVs and highlight their skills more effectively. Our clients have been thrilled with the outcomes we’ve achieved, and we’re confident that we can help you find the right candidate for your next opening.
