Not Sending An Appropriate Resume

A resume is the first point of connection with the recruiter. Applying tweaks to the resume every now and then according to the job is a smart way of catching the recruiter's eyes.

Not Choosing A Suitable Jobs

In a bid to change your employment status to 'working', it is likely that you send your resumes to every possible firm or job that actually don't fit the bill. Review your applications and filter the best suitable jobs that go well with your qualification or experience.

Not Building A Network

Having profiles on professional networking sites such as LinkedIn may fill your inbox, but expanding a potential network and direct contacts are more important. Attend job fairs or industry events to acquire the contacts of recruiters or HR personnel. This could balloon your chances of getting called when there are interior recruitments.

Impressing The Recruiter Than Required

Trying to highlight your unwanted skills may sometimes land you in the reject list. Try to focus more on those of your capabilities that best suit the organisation's needs and fit for the development.

Jumping The Guns For Salary

Knowingly or unknowingly, you could have demanded more payment or other benefits before the hiring manager let you know the result. Hold your horses until the right moment or better keep mum if it's your first job.

Not Following The Clothing Etiquette

Yes, a well-dressed attire mirrors your confidence and a small recklessness in presenting yourself could cost you to fail! Employers do observe the same and can sense your attitude which plays a key role in landing the job.

Not Applying For A Passionate Job

Skills can be learned, technology can be taught, but not the passion. A passionless job search narrows downs the chances of a great interview and thus, no offer letter!

Bad Cyber Behaviour

Being bold is totally different from being a jerk on social networking platforms. Especially your Twitter and Facebook profiles could be a medium of filtering your application by your potential employer. Many of the recruiters give a quick peek into the social network profiles of the applicants to glean the REAL personalities. The quotes you share, comments you make, or the photos you post could be counted! It is not that you have to act all clean and ideological, but need to be truthful.

Got the cues? Be attentive the next time and come out with an offer letter in hands. Do share us your experiences.
