5 Reasons Your Job Hunting Isn't Going Well

Analyzing your job hunt could prove to be more useful than you think


To advance your career and make sure your job hunt is on track there are a number of things that you must make sure you are doing right. In fact as a job seeker, looking to get a job should in fact be your full-time job. Today we are going to look at 5 quick, key reasons you are not getting the response from employers that you feel you should. If you are guilty of any of these offenses, today is a great day to take action.

# 1. You are not making your job hunt personal.

What we mean here is that you are still sending generic resumes to "whom it may concern." Get personal. Find the names of the HR Directors, hiring managers or the person doing the hiring at the company. Then send them a personal note with a custom resume catered to their company and position that you wish to have.

 # 2. You are looking where everyone else is looking.

As a job board, we want you to look at apply to the jobs that we offer on our site. It's a great way to see a mass number of open positions at one time. However, do know that you are competing with a larger number of candidates. Do your homework and find open positions through networking, online searching and leveraging job boards and vertical search engines like Job-A-Lot to uncover hidden gems.

# 3. You believe every word coming out of the television.

If you think everything is all doom and gloom, its time to snap out of it. Orlando is a top 5 city for available internships and entry level positions - so you are in a great place to find opportunity. Take a few minutes out of your day to find positivity and you will find yourself having less stress and an open mind towards your job hunt.
