Often, it’s not your resume that’s hurting you. It’s not that your LinkedIn profile is preventing you from job search success. It’s not where you went to college, either.
Rather, it’s the number of other applicants going for the same openings. For instance, if you’re applying to the same positions as a 1,000 other qualified applicants, you have a 0.1% of getting that job.
As an intelligent job seeker, you should automatically recognize that when you utilize the mainstream avenues such as LinkedIn and Monster, you’re often competing with the masses.
As a result, you have less options, more rejection and lowered confidence from non-responsive hiring managers.
