No one is denying the stress of job hunting. In fact, the entire process really makes or breaks you as a person. A lot of times people send multiple resumes, give numerous interviews yet do not get a positive response and this understandably really affects their confidence and self–esteem. However this shouldn’t be an excuse for you to throw in the towel.
In fact, this is the best time for you to evaluate yourself rather than blaming external forces. Chances are you could be doing something that sabotages your own chances of landing a good job. You can keep reading below for a list of potential reasons why you might not be getting hired.
- The first thing you need to look at and consider is your resume. Is it too long? Does it convey your achievements? Does it portray that you have the necessary skills for the job? Your resume is what builds your initial impression in your potential employer’s head, so you want to make sure that you make a good and strong impression.
- You are not being proactive about the entire thing. No job will conveniently offer itself to you. You have to look up postings for Pakistani jobs yourself, continue to expand your skills set and learning new things as you go.
- If you do not make an effort to look up information on the company, you will come across as disinterested. Employers want to see how much you know about the place you are applying for and if you come across as oblivious, your uninterested attitude will not be well received.
- You are giving the wrong impression of yourself. This can be conveyed through numerous things like coming in late, inappropriate dressing, and a bored attitude, inability to show your personality or to sell yourself to them. You only get once chance to make a strong impression, so make sure that you do it right.
