For sometime now, certain areas we want to show the benefits of Internet job search and, of course, is, however, do not forget the faults of those who are suffering.
According to recent studies, 80% of actual job offers come to light not because they are covered by the “word of mouth” of a lifetime, now called “Networking”.
The remaining 20% of jobs come in different media such as press, job portals, public employment services, human resource consultants, temporary work, etc..
What I show is that the Internet is a tool in job search, however, not use it we are guaranteed to find work and must dispose of other means. We must complement each other.
Then let us not forget that the Internet is a business that specialized employment websites are making money as a priority objective of its biggest customers: the “Business”.
Nobody can deny that such sites are not as idyllic as they seem and accumulated job “hook” on which the job offered is a chimera to attract candidates.
Do not forget that in the selection process, the major premise is speed: since it is launched until you close and try to have the best. Is it not to suspect these jobs a month are displayed in a job portal and offers the same two months in a company do temporary work, lingering on both without justification? Maybe not exist? Or those offerings are not current or a future?
Candidates do not know the back of the job portals because as you know are not involved in the selection process and perhaps, therefore, the problems begin. That yes, they are aware of these tricks of the companies in which it plays with people’s expectations. All portals of employment without exception act the same way, to a greater or lesser extent. But how can it be that many candidates who meet the prerequisites for the position are discarded without at least be making contact with the company? Other times, those same candidates, for the same offer, but on the other channel, are in process or runner without even having had any contact with companies. Clearly, however, in this case at least the job is real.
Not too long ago, one of my surroundings opted for a position as counselor to work out on a job portal and enrolled are waiting. Met all the requirements. They spent days, weeks and months and never heard. That yes, about a month ago found in public service employment that same offer from same company. He wrote to the corresponding INAEM office to show interest and was shown the email address where I should send your resume and a phone number to contact the person in charge of the process. He said that he did that day because he was going to make your selection immediately. He made both and the contact person told him that this would take long and that, if fit, would be contacting him. That yes, he received the letter from INAEM for the company seal was in another province. He rang the company and was told they did not take charge of that process and to get in touch with his office that was what solved the issue. Of course, the offer was never heard, nor will know and you wonder what they do with those resumes?
Tenders have no truth to all types, from the generic, which do nothing until too specific, which give too much data.
Many companies insert job “just in case” comes a project that will require staff to specify a particular profile and make up the interviews but delay the selection process and these candidates will never know of that offer. You can even lead to psychological problems because you can even get one to think that the problem is in yourself. It is difficult to realize that the problem is that this work does not exist.
However, the profiles that we inserted in job portals have much to do to where it comes within the process or simply that you discard. Oddly enough, it is proven that the more general and indeterminate to be the best profile. Test but may you put two different profiles with your data.
But I do not want to generalize. Of course there are many other offers that are true and that many people, on occasion, found jobs through the job portals and many others do not.
Such portals must be designed primarily to make money and then worry about whether a platform that creates an incentive to find work. That is, it is used by companies to select the staff they need and not to advertise themselves or their activities by inserting non-existent jobs.
Both employment portals, such as public employment services should be able to require companies to justify the very existence of these jobs and not giving carte blanche to do and undo. Of course, I refer to the apparent controls that are so soft that seem nonexistent.
Only transparency should be asked. Because they are the first to recommend candidates that they should not cheat on their resumes. When candidates are that crafty and makeup of the truth are the ones who are getting results, make that, sooner or later be passed to this game in which all parties involved actors in the job search.
I think it’s time for the job seekers to see the reality and know what lies behind so much silence in their quest, not because they are all fit the profile but because some of these deals are mountains of smoke.
