Resume Interview skills

Why am I not getting hired?

People submit a lot of job applications but they can never seem to get employed. Why is that?

Being employed is particularly one of the leading drivers of depression, crime, and accelerated birth rate. It is very displeasing, especially when you are a black South African citizen in a country led by corrupt people in power, people who stand for nothing but selfish gain, and the white percentage that only gets involved when situations affect them.


But, why is it that most people submit applications yet cannot get employed?

Many people may come up with intellectual answers which can be useful, but what is the core issue?

Another issue that seems to be a growing problem is that the unskilled over 30, and semi-skilled over 30, are also considered to be unemployable, which is also a huge problem.


How long does it take to start working after applying for a job?

one to two weeks

It typically takes one to two weeks to hear back after applying for a job. An employer may respond faster if the job is a high priority, or if they're a small and efficient organization. It can also occasionally take longer for an employer to respond to a job application or resume submission.


Why am I not getting hired after interviews?

You are applying to the wrong jobs


Read through your resume to determine what other job titles you could apply to. You may find that you need more experience in one area to be qualified for your dream job. Realize that it can take a while to be ready for your ideal role.

Why is no one responding to my job applications?

Hiring managers may want to provide more information, but their hands are tied. This is often one of the leading reasons why employers don't respond to job applications.


Some instances may be that you have been blacklisted, Yes. You can get blacklisted from being employed. But how would you find out?

What does being blacklisted mean in a job?

A blacklist is any understanding or agreement that communicates a name, or list of names, or descriptions between two or more employers, supervisors, or managers to prevent an employee from engaging in a useful occupation. A blacklist can be spoken, written, printed, or implied.

Can you be blacklisted from getting a job?

Potential job seekers can be blacklisted by recruiters for a variety of reasons, ranging from minor to major offenses. Perhaps you told a little white lie or had a blow-up with your old boss, who now serves as a bad reference.

To determine what your former employer is saying about you, consider asking a friend in business to call your former employer requesting a job reference. Or you can hire an investigator or reference-checking agency to make inquiries with your previous boss to determine whether you're being blacklisted.


How many times should you follow up after applying for a job?

How often should I follow up on a job application? One or two communications, spaced about a week apart, are enough.


Why do I never get hired?

If you're not getting callbacks, the problem may be that you're overqualified for a listing. Companies look for a close fit—which means they need a candidate who meets as many of their requirements as possible. Certain jobs, particularly those in specialized fields, require a bunch of certifications.
