Why It Seems So Hard to Get Hired for Your Services!


 Why It Seems So Hard to Get Hired for Your Services!

Video marketing is becoming a huge and even necessary part of any business or service's marketing strategy. This can be hard work and it can also be difficult to get noticed by the outside world. It is even harder to actually get hired, however! Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that only about 10% of unemployment claims for VA hospitals are for nurses, which means that you're likely going to need some real skill with social media marketing!

The goal of this blog post is to offer some clear insight into why it might seem like all you do is apply, apply, and apply while getting no responses. I want to help you see the problem with how we look at our own situation and help you figure out how to get hired, even with absolutely no experience or knowledge of what it takes to land a job.

What does your resume look like?

In my last post , I offered a link for resources for recruiters, but there are many other things that you can do in order to land employment. Many people tend to focus on getting their resumes in front of the right person with the wrong sort of resume. They focus on not making mistakes and showing off their educational credentials. They spend hours and hours one by one revising their resumes and then get concerned when they either don't land an interview or if they do, it's because they made a mistake with the resume.

Most people have no idea what their current resume looks like or even how it can be improved. Even worse, most people are so focused on their resumes that they don't really ever ask for help. They've been taught that there's this kind of professional world out there where you go from job to job and you never leave the office. If you want to change careers, you just move on and go to the next thing.

Nothing could be further from the truth. This is 2014, not 1954. When people leave a job, it's usually because they find something close to an ideal working situation or they get hired somewhere else and given a better position with better pay! You need to understand that being in the right place at the right time opens doors for you and making a good impression on someone there could lead to employment offers.

HR professionals have their own problems.

The average HR person at a company takes so many resumes at one time that they can't even look at each one individually. They have to skim them and pick out the ones that don't look like mistakes or people who seem unqualified. The HR department also has a lot of internal conflicts where they fight between hiring outside candidates, keeping workers happy, and even just moving positions around in-house to make things easier for everyone.

Many times HR professionals are also not very well staffed either so they have to deal with long hours without breaks in addition to having the same problems you have with trying to figure out the best way to interview someone and realize they might be perfect for a job but they can't remember if their resume looks right or not!

There's a huge amount of competition out there.

It's getting more and more difficult to land a job, even for the most senior or highly-skilled people in your field. The competition has only increased as times have changed to increase speed and efficiency. It used to be that if you've worked somewhere for a long time, then you might get a chance to interview with anyone and get hired if you were very qualified.

Today, however, almost everyone takes the same tests and prepares for the same things. If someone is hired from an outside candidate, then it will probably be because they've already been considered qualified before but didn't make it through their channels. This is a huge problem because they've been successful before trying to get into your organization and they're probably still very capable at the position in question.

There's no excuse for the HR department not to be able to make a few phone calls and hire some of this talent once they see them. No matter how good you think you are, there's always someone better than you out there!

The number of jobs available is getting smaller and smaller.

I don't have any statistics on this, but it's already a known fact that the jobs available for entry-level workers are getting smaller and smaller. Your major competitors might be in different locations or even with different countries, but you can usually take them down if you're very skilled and highly-qualified.

This means that if you're not skilled enough to really keep up with the competition, then your career might just get washed away with the other hordes of people who are not qualified! This is why it's important to note that the "best" way to train yourself is not by watching others and learning something from them (or even reading books). It's by taking action and putting yourself in the position where you can learn from your mistakes.

You might not even be getting close to the right people.

One of the biggest issues I see with people who are having trouble landing jobs is that they're getting nowhere because they're already approaching the wrong people! Find out which employees would be most likely to give you a chance and make sure you connect with them on a first-name basis.

Employees generally like their bosses, but they also have personalities of their own. They'll have someone who they hang out with after work and someone else that they talk to about personal things during the day. Get it right and you'll find that you're getting closer to the people who can give you the opportunity of a lifetime.

You probably have some friends who are smart and could be good hires but they just don't know what to do.

Even if your friends are talented, they might not know how to go about setting themselves up for success. It's up to us as individuals to assist someone else in finding their way through the maze that is a job search.

Always remember that if you want to work for someone, then you need to make sure they've taken the time to figure out what kind of people they want in their company. This means that even if you think your resume looks great, you might not be getting anywhere because your ideas and experience might not match up with what a company is looking for.

Be persistent and keep trying!

Eventually, if you keep going about it the right way, then you'll find the right position for yourself. Sometimes this can take a year or more depending on how competitive your field is and how much time you spend working on it.


The bottom line is that you're not getting anywhere because you're doing something wrong. And you might never figure out what that is without some help. Sometimes it's just easier to have a friend or family member take a look at your resume and tell you what they think.
