If you are sending your applications or resume one after another but you rarely called for interviews and if it is looking as you will never find a job.
We will try to find out the reasons behind that in the view of career coaches and experts. The main reasons behind their continuous failure are some common mistake that job hunters do over and over due to the lack of proper knowledge. So we are stating the four most common mistakes made by the applicants. So make sure in your applications that you are avoiding these mistakes.
1. You don’t prepare for the interview
According to a career coach Roy Cohen “in a competitive market, you can’t afford to wing around” that means that research about related and relevant that will help find any information about the interview also consider that why are you interested in the job, what made you qualified for that job, how your selection can effect the company. That gave you an advantage in interview even against the more experienced person.
2. You don’t follow up properly or you follow up ineffectively.
This is the second negligence occur by the most people. According to Chen”the devil is in the details if has two equally qualified candidates, who gets the offer? The candidate who follow up thoughtfully” will get easily. The candidate’s who convey gratitude for the opportunity in interview, show awareness on issues. And explain the difficulties in the firm and how he will tackle them can increase his chance magically.
3. You don’t show a confident image.
Make yourself confident and enthusiastic in interview rather then acting nervous. This will help your chances a lot. Before the interview do the practice of interview with your friends. Practise to answer short and precise. Remind some of your stories about your previous career. But don’t over do it. It portray you an egoistic maniac.
4. You simply make assumptions.
Don’t make assumptions about your interview as some people assume after a good interview that they have the job “in the bag” while other become hopeless when they don’t get a early response after interview. Rather then making assumption prepare your self for the next step as it can break down at any point if you take your eye of the ball. Always find a way to stay in touch and do your best.
