We’ve all been there. Or at least most of us have. You send in a job application in the hope of getting the interview, but you don’t hear back. Recruiters don’t call to tell you if you were successful or not, and they don’t email. So you are left wondering what happened.
The reality is, a lot of things could have happened. But the bottom-line is; the recruiter didn’t find your job application to be that impressive. They didn’t think you were well qualified for the position and your CV didn’t have the direct experience they were looking for.
Not getting a response from recruiters can be annoying and frustrating. But it doesn’t have to be so. In this post, you will learn of 4 ways you can draw the recruiter to your job application and guarantee feedback.
How to Get Recruiters to Respond to Your Job Applications
1. Make a Point of Knowing Who the Recruiter is
This can be a little difficult, but it’s not impossible. You know how you are advised to learn the name of the hiring manager so you can apply directly to them? The reason you are told to this is because it appeals to the good side of the hiring manager.
The same will apply when trying to get feedback on your job application. Your research on the name can start with the job advert. Look at the email address provided and if it includes a contact person. Then move on to LinkedIn and the company website. This is where you are most likely to find out who the recruiter is.
