Why Many Job Seekers Don’t Get The Job

We have different categories of people that need this content

  • Undergraduate
  • Fresh graduates
  • Corp members
  • Employed
  • Self-employed

No matter the category you are, we need to know why many job seekers do not get the job. Many of us have submitted our CVs to several companies or firm and we did not hear from them.

Why some of who got lucky to the interview and they promised to get back to us, but they did not. Before you apply for any job, you must check if you have their requirements and what the employers are looking for. Some reasons why you are not hired are

  1. You do not do any research about the job and company

Not doing your research can cost you the job. Employers want to hire candidates who know about their industry and its challenges, and who have thought about ways that they can contribute to the company’s success.

If your first question to the interviewer is, “So, what does this company do?” you will not be getting the call.

  1. You are desperate

While it is good to be enthusiastic about the role, candidates who seem simply desperate for a job turn off employers.

You have to play it cool, but not too cool. Display confidence without being cocky.

Remember, you are also there to do them a favor because they need your skills and service to grow their business.

Be confident of what you have and do not sell yourself cheap

  1. You do not look the part in terms of dressing

A job interview isn’t a fashion show, and you don’t have to be a supermodel. For the most part, it’s enough to look well-groomed, professional and respectful. This means dressing up a little more than you normally would to show that you care and that you take the interview seriously.

  1. You have unrealistic salary expectations

Of course, you know how much money you would like to earn – and what cut you would like to have from your employer, but if your expectations are unrealistic, or you’re too demanding or inflexible, it will turn employers off.

Do your researches, find out the salary range that jobs like yours pay in your area, and be willing to negotiate for the best deal you can get.

  1. Unprofessional CV

In your resume, a typo-error can constitute the difference between whether you get an interview or find your application automatically rejected.

Never submit a resume that you have not run through a spell checker and a grammar checker. Always make sure that someone with a good command of grammar rules reviewed your resume.

Your formatting is also important. Recruiters do not want to see fancy resumes; they want to see resumes that are easy to read. Your CV should be rich with details about you that can convince your employer to invite you for an interview.

Many CVs are rejected and thrown into the trashcan because of common mistakes job seekers do while writing their CVs and the process of submitting their CVs.

It is very important for you to represent your CV well because CV is a document that tells the employer who you are, what you have done and what you can do.

Many CVs are rejected because they are not attractive and they do not contain convincing info the employer is looking for.

  1. Sending CV with no cover letter

Do you know that employers do not open a CV that is not accompanied by a cover letter?

A cover letter should be sent out with every CV. It provides an effective summary of your skills and experience in relation to the specific position you are applying for.

The cover letter is your sales document. It should complement your CV. When emailing your CV, your cover letter becomes the email message.

Simply type your letter in the body of the email. (Do not send as an attachment).  Many applicants just send their CV with a blank mail; it will never be attended to if you do that.

Your CV should be targeted to appeal solely to the niche or position you are applying for. Not tailoring your CV is the most dangerous mistake you can ever make when writing your CV.

I will write, edit and design a Professional CV + Cover letter for you that are attractive to the employer at an affordable rate.

Call for Papers: Africa and the Second World War

Call for papers now open in Africa and the Second World War to be presented at the Second World War Research Group, Southern Africa Conference, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa.

Application Deadline: 1st October 2019.

To be taken at (country): Second World War Research Group, Southern Africa Conference, University of Stellenbosch, SA.

About the Award: The Second World War has shaped the world in which we live. The Second World War was the defining episode of the twentieth century. A truly total and global war, the scale of the carnage outstripped the Great War in physical destruction and dislocation and the loss of human life. The death tally was not only higher, but civilian non-combatants formed a far greater proportion. As a result, life in 1946 was vastly different from that in 1938. Societal relations changed irrevocably and the war, marked by rapid, unprecedented technological change, ushered in the nuclear age and changed thinking about strategy and tactics and the application of military power. It was also a major watershed in terms of how ordinary people thought, highlighting new divisions, but also new possibilities. It brought a truly global age: travel became much more accessible, ideas now moved more freely, colonialism was ended together with the political hegemony of Western Europe and North America, ushering in a bipolar, Cold-War era.

This conference seeks to bring together scholars to examine the African campaigns of the war and the naval operations in African waters and explore the implications these held for those that fought and particularly for the peoples of the African continent. The event will be hosted in the same week as a symposium to mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of Jan Smuts, South Africa’s wartime prime minister.

Field of Research: Politics and alliances / National interest / Defence policy / Intelligence and the threat perception / Societies at war / Homefronts / Mobilisation / Production and consumption / Economics / Industry / Resistance to the war / Propaganda / Military organisation, force design, preparation / Campaigns and battles / Soldier experiences / Veterans’ tales

Eligibility: Paper and panel proposals are invited. Contributions covering the African campaigns or taking thematic approaches are equally welcomed. Participants will be invited to discuss new research and provide expert feedback. A book publication is planned.

Number of Awards: Not specified

Duration of Award: 27-29 May 2020

How to Apply: The current deadline to submit a proposal (a title and a 300-word abstract with short cv) is 1 October 2019. We aim to have completed papers for the conference, which we hope to share a fortnight before the event. A full timeline to follow.

Address submissions and enquiries to:
