How to apply for a job
November 25th, 2010 Posted by: Bafforic
The past few weeks have been rather frustrating. I am now wondering if jobseekers actually take their time to read the job descriptions and especially the how to apply section. It's becoming obvious they don't!
I have been fielding calls from clients who are frustrated because candidates have actually been hand-delivering resumes to their offices even though the application details specifically request applications to be sent by email. Just yesterday, a gentleman called to ask for directions of an employer. Why, because he would prefer to hand deliver the application against the wishes of the employer; instructions require applications only be by email. Wow, so what other options are there beyond employers and recruiters dumping resumes sent the improper way.
Should employers and recruiters be blamed for a jobseeker's reckless disregard for instructions? I think not. As long as a jobseeker does not follow the application instruction spelt out on the posting, he or she should consider kissing their chances good-bye.
