A Job Seeker needs support and encouragement but a job group is the wrong place to get it – anyone at a job club who gets a job will disappear so fast they won’t even leave a vapour trail. Why? because they are happy to brush off the stink and misery of not having a job. That’s the truth.
Don’t forget, the objective of sending in a resume is to capture the attention and interest of the Hiring Manager and to get a telephone or face to face interview. Follow up is critical!
Everyone discourages phone calls but that isn’t going to frighten you is it? I’m sure the company wants to hire go-getters; people excited about the job opportunity!
… due diligence when hiring, regardless whether they have a program in place or not, this means investing the time to ensure every candidate is the right fit and this means going through the resume, calling the references, doing an EQ check and the full interview process. The problem with ERP’s are the resumes at the top of the pile are often ill-placed, wasting a lot of time, effort, man power and money going through the wrong candidates.
