Are You Applying Online? Here Is Why You May Not Be Getting A Response

There are tons of job sites online and they seem to be expanding far and beyond. The funny thing is that the job site rise all started at the down fall of the economy. Hey, it really makes sense, millions of people lose their jobs so, millions of people are looking online to find one. It is a great idea but, is it really doing anyone any good? There are still many people without jobs and I am sure all of them have applied online. Who are the people getting the jobs and why are you not getting a response?

The biggest reason why you may not be getting a response is because the job is already taken. If the job site takes off all the job openings that have been filled then, that is going to leave them with one empty search result. It will also give them a lesser rank in the search engines when someone is looking for a specific job through Google or what ever search engine they use. It may seem wrong to leave a job posting up that is already taken but, you have to understand, they are running a business and they are doing what they can to maintain their traffic level, that is how it works. That doesn't mean you should assume a job you see is taken. Send in your resume, no harm in that.

Another reason why you may not getting a response from any employers is that you may be too focused on one field of work. You may have experience in a certain area and you may have doubt or any will to try and learn something new. It is important to know that you have gained skills form your previous jobs that you may have not realized.

All businesses are run in similar ways. If you find yourself at a new job, you will be surprised in the things you all ready know that you have learned from previous jobs. For example, you may have spent most of your life being a folder operator. All the years you have been a folder operator you also learned about job tickets, urgency in getting jobs done, quality, safety, shipping and receiving, fixing machines etc. You can use all of those skills just about any where. Go online and look for jobs in similar fields too your previous experience.

I have experience in the printing business but, never as a QA,(quality assurance). Maybe someone had experience as a QA but, not in the printing business. I myself would hire the one who knows more about printing rather than just being a QA. Lets say there was an opening for a supervisor at a printing company. Who would you hire? Someone who has supervisor experience in a whole different field of work or, someone who has been working at a printing company most of their life. Look for different positions in the same area of work. This will expand your options.

Another reason you are not hearing back from any employers is simply because you are waiting to hear back. Every job application has a phone number and someone to contact. When ever you send in your resume to an employer, call them right away and let them know you have just sent your resume in. when you call, be excited and let them know how excited you are about the opportunity even though you may not feel it. The human recourse department are the ones who look at your resume. They are not just sitting there waiting for an application to be submitted. They are busy people and it is not their number one priority to look at resumes. If you call, you are putting a flag up saying, "here I am take a look at me". A good attitude and eagerness to work is something all employers are looking for. How bad do you want it?

Who are the people getting the jobs? You may think it is someone who simply has more experience than you but, that is not necessarily true. The people who are getting the jobs are the ones trying harder than you. They are pushing for a job rather than sitting back waiting to hear from someone. Its not too late and don't give up. Maybe you have tried as hard as you can to find a job but, do not let the doubt or negativity of the situation get too you. That will make getting a job harder than it is. Keep fighting and be optimistic. It is not too late.

I recently wrote an article about finding a job online. The reason why I decided to write this article is because I received a comment from someone who has been applying every where with know bites. Keep trying and remember you may have to work your way up. Better pay will come in time but, you have too start now. Being too picky is keeping you in the same spot.
