It seems as though I have gotten quite a bit of heat regarding this post from earlier today
Certain people seem to have gotten the wrong idea, and felt I was knocking joining a company’s job/talent network. Not the case at all. To clarify, I was merely stating an opinion that it is a bit rude and underhanded of recruiters-companies-employers to disguise opt ins to their networks as actual job postings, so that when say for example, people apply off of CareerBuiler believing they have actually submitted an application for a job,  they only to end up receiving e-mails saying “welcome to our talent network” and finding that they haven’t actually applied for jobs at all and will now need to go through the network to apply to the same position (s) that they believed themselves to have applied to already. Joining a company’s network can actually assist you in keeping up to date with their latest postings and may even allow you first crack at positions before an official posting is made. It was merely tricking people into joining that I took issue with. Happy to clear that up.

You have all been there before you see a job on a job board-career website that is of interest to you and you feel that you are the perfect match for the position, you click the apply button, send them your resume and cover letter and click submit only to be enrolled in their “job network.” This is without a doubt the most ridiculous and deceptive thing. In your mind you were applying for an actual position not opting into a job network. This kind of  trickery needs to cease and desist immediately. If people actually wanted to join your job-talent network they would have. But they had little to no interest in doing so hence why they applied for a singular position via your posting on a career website-job board. This is almost as bad as staffing and employment agencies who try and pass themselves off as actual employers. Just one of the many ways that the time and effort of job seekers is wasted. Were you to actually join their talent network, you would need to reapply to the same position (s) you thought you were applying to originally all over again in case you were wondering.

I certainly hope everyone had a wonderful and memorable Thanksgiving. I know I did. But unfortunately not everyone is so lucky. Many spend the holidays alone, or simply have a miserable experience being included in but are not engaged in family get togethers, that are neither fun nor enjoyable for them. A lack of confidence could be a contributing or even a key factor. The person may perceive themselves as “dull”, “boring”, “uninteresting” or feel they have “nothing to contribute” to ongoing conversations. As a result of this, they may sit in a corner while everyone else is having a good time having not said but two words to people (usually hello and goodbye.) After a couple of years of this, the person either quits attending the functions altogether or in many cases is no longer invited because they “aren’t any fun to invite.” And thus they spend the majority (if not all) of their holidays alone. But this could all be avoided by learning how to be more confident automatically by Clicking Here.

As a potential job seeker there is perhaps nothing more annoying than applying for a job that you feel you are more than qualified for only to not only be rejected during the screening or interview phase, but to constantly see the same job being posted and re-posted on job sites and remaining vacant when you feel you would have been the perfect person to fill it. There is often a very simple reason for this, you failed to convey to the potential employer that you were indeed the perfect candidate. One Of Our Professionally Written Resumes And Cover Letters could have prevented this problem and helped the potential employer see that you were  just the person they were looking for.

Being rejected for a job that you really want can hurt especially when you feel in your mind that you are more than qualified and perhaps even overqualified. There are many reasons these rejections occur and surprise… most have little if anything to do with you. Here are just some of those reasons and what you can do to combat them.

 
1. Nepotistic Hiring Practices- Perhaps the hiring manager has decided to hire a friend or family member as opposed to you. This doesn’t mean that you aren’t competent, it just means you are a stranger to them and they think it would be “a lot more fun” to work with someone they have known since childhood.

 
2. Sheer Laziness And Unwillingness To Travel On The Part Of The Hiring Manager- Perhaps you live across town or even across the country and the hiring manager is simply too lazy and unwilling to travel to your location or to pay to have you travel to them in order to meet with you. You may be the perfect candidate, but because of this they pass on you. This problem may be avoidable if the company were to hire a hiring manager who actually lives and works in your area of the country.

 
3. The Hiring Manager Is Closed Minded- They may have a particular kind of person in mind and may be unable or unwilling to envision anyone else filling the position. If you are that unconventional square peg you could have all of the experience in the world and may be perfect for the job, but you aren’t getting it because the hiring manager “just can’t see it.”

 
4. The Hiring Manager Is Blind To What You Are Trying To Convey- You know in your mind and in your heart of hearts that you are without a doubt the only candidate who should be considered.You know that in a perfect world the hiring manager would take all of those other resumes and applications and throw them in the trash, burn them etc. as they are completely unnecessary. But the hiring manager for reasons unknown even to them just doesn’t see things this way and often times your stuff ends up being buried or you end up competing with and losing out to people who are far less qualified.

Many people ask me this and I say with certainty and from experience that barring one incredibly rare exception my answer is nearly always an emphatic no.
This may surprise some people as most would probably tell you to “go for it” but I find it to be an incredible waste of time and in some cases it can make you appear desperate and stalker like. If they rejected you at the interview phase before, what makes you believe that you will even make it past the screening phase next time around? Think of applying for a job as being about the same auditing for a reality television show, the further you make it during your initial attempt the less likely you are to get even that far the next time around. Your time may be better spent seeking employment elsewhere including but not limited to the competitor (s) of the company that rejected you. Make them realize they have made a mistake by proving yourself to be an invaluable asset to someone else or maybe even consider starting your own business. As for that rare exception, if the company who previously rejected you were to  contact you and say “we have a position available as that person we foolishly hired instead of you proved to be unreliable and we would like you to come aboard and are prepared to give you a higher salary.” Then consider taking the job.
