One of the most frustrating aspects about the job search is that continual cycle of applying for a job and never hearing back from the company or the recruiting service working on that position. It is somewhat like a “Resume Black Hole,” where you never get a clear answer or a reason why you weren’t contacted for the position or the job.
It’s important to remain subjective and keep a clear head during this process. Larger companies - and even smaller ones too – now use talent management software to prescreen resumes, and can possibly weed out up to almost half of the applicants before a resume even reaches the HR department.
Here are some reasons why your resume might have been overlooked and some different ways to stay out of this “Resume Black Hole.”
The important thing to remember during this time is that a job search really is a job. It takes dedication and persistence. And if you do feel like you are stuck in the “resume black hole”, don’t take it personally – it’s not a rejection of you, it’s a reflection of the times.
