With Job Applications, Quality Is Always Better Than Quantity

A common mistake job seekers make is applying to multiple jobs using a generic CV or Resume.

They believe that the more job applications they send, the higher their chances of landing a job.

They focus on quantity instead of quality.

They believe they need to batch the job application to get a chance

Some applicants batch applications and can lodge 5-10 applications within an hour

Unfortunately, the recruiter rejects most of these applications because they are not unique or customised.

These individuals end up receiving negative emails, which frustrates them

They believe they have put in a lot of work and should get results

It doesn’t work this way.

You have to customise each application to each job if you want to increase your odds of getting shortlisted for an interview.

Ensure your applications are targeted.

Spend quality time customising your resume for the job application.

Each application can take 3-4 hours to complete, but it will be worth your effort.

Employers like these applications as they are customised.

These applications often pass the Applicant Tracking System (ATS) as well.

Applicants who do this often get shortlisted.

They land more interviews, and you begin to wonder how they do what they do.

It’s simple:

They put in the time and effort to get quality applications over the line

They do not focus on quantity over quality

Try to focus on quality over quantity.

You will get more favourable results.

I hope this helps you.
