Why am I not getting hired?

Why am I Not Getting Hired. Do not get frustrated if there\'s no response from the employers. First understand and do not approach any company if you\'re not the right candidate for the listed vacancy.

Sir, I have applied to more than 30 jobs in last the 30 days time, but I haven't received a single interview call yet. Is it because of tight market condition, or do employers now have the luxury of time? I heard there are instances where employers make offers on the spot. Please suggest. - Sandhya

Do not get frustrated if there's no response from the employers. First understand and do not approach any company if you're not the right candidate for the listed vacancy. Next, don't make disappointing assumptions if they do not hire you. While recruiting the right people, employer's may take some good time. However, it doesn't mean that they have the luxury of time for recruitment. In most of the cases, hiring managers are eager to fulfill the requirements in the shortest possible time. Employers prefer to hire through referrals as they believe it to be the most trusted source. Moreover it incur less cost. Be realistic... if you're the right fit, prove it by getting referred by someone the hiring manager trusts. Many a times, the recruitment process slows down as they get bunch of irrelevant profiles too. You may be the right fit for one, two or three jobs. So pick them carefully and study the job, project, company in detail. Remember CVs do not reveal what you are... So, better get an appointment to demonstrate your skills and the value you bring in if they hire you.
