+ why didn't you get the job?
Everyone loves feedback. Unfortunately we don't have the time or resources to provide personalised feedback to unsuccessful applicants, and the factors determining the outcome are always the same, anyway.
There are always plenty of applicants to every job advertised. Naturally we can't tell you who these people are, but it's all about competition.
+ firstly - you're not the only one
Just because you didn't get shortlisted or get an interview, it doesn't mean your application was bad or you're a bad person.
No-one, except the employer and us, knows who, or how many, made the short-list, so despite the fact that you may feel you should've been the chosen one, you don't know who you were up against, so presumptions such as this are somewhat misguided and aren't good for your self-esteem!
+ don't give us a hard time
We're talking seriously unimpressed.
We'll "black out" abusive applicants - permanently.
Let's make one thing clear. We don't want you to provide us with a thesis. In fact making your application concise, factual, and relevant is probably the biggest challenge. Check this out for information on putting your application together.
The most common reason applicants don't make the initial shortlist is because they didn't pay attention to the requirements we specified. This can include:
- Not addressing the selection criteria (why should you get away with not doing it when other applicants have? There is a process that has to be followed which must be fair.)
+ work history
Generally employers look favourably upon applicants with solid consistent employment histories - longevity is important as this is what employers expect when they invest their resources in the recruitment process.
- telephone interviews
We don't know you. We have to rely on factual and anecdotal feedback to determine if your performance was up to scratch. Can you:
- get on well with everyone, including agencies that you've dealt with, despite any differences you may have? (this reflects your true level of professionalism)
