Why are job applications ignored nowadays?

It is always annoying if you find a vacancy that seems to be especially for you - it seems that you fit perfectly and this is exactly what you need - you respond, and in response there is silence. The resume remains unread, and after a while the vacancy is archived. Why it happens? There are several typical reasons.

It is because of such situations that myths appear that vacancies on job search sites are fake or that recruiters post them for show, but in fact they only take them out of acquaintance.

Myths arise from a misunderstanding of how the recruiting process works. Not a single job search site could exist on fake vacancies - such a project would simply have no economic sense, the development and support costs would not pay off.

And not a single business with more than a dozen employees could cover its need for personnel if it closed all vacancies "by acquaintance". There is such a source as recommendations from colleagues, but it is never the only one.

Recruiters, as a rule, use several sources of search for candidates at once. Talk to the HR managers you know who are hiring in practice - and find out where the job sites rank in these sources. If you don't have such acquaintances, go to any professional HR group on any social network and ask this question there.

Nevertheless, the problem of lack of response to feedback does exist. There are a number of reasons for this. Some of them are objective (this is a reflection of the realities of the labor market), and, unfortunately, it is impossible or very difficult to influence them. But some of the reasons are subjective, and you can just influence them, you just need to change something in your resume or in the tactics of finding a job.

How employers view responses

It happens that employers don't even scroll to the end of the full list of everyone who responded to the vacancy. And it happens that, scrolling through this list, they already at the stage of viewing such brief information reject many resumes, without opening them for more detailed study. Here are the reasons it usually happens.

• resume has an unsuitable title
• inappropriate or poorly described experience
• unsuitable level of previous jobs
• mismatch in salary level
• response without cover letter
• you are a little late with your response
• "Wrong" age or gender

Don't take it personally if your response is left unattended. This is a reason to think about why this happened and work on your mistakes. Another possible reason: you just don't fit with this job - it's good that you didn't have to waste time on interviews. Your option still exists.

What if you get interview views quite often, but you never get called for interviews? This is another story. Perhaps it looks weak against the background of other candidates' resumes and would be worth a resume rewrite.
