Job Search Website Employer Confessions

Written by Joel Walsh

Summary: You'll be shocked when you learn what I found out when I posted a job as an employer on a job search website. Find outrepparttar tactics to getrepparttar 150038 attention of an employer like me amid a sea of job search website applications.

Hi, I'mrepparttar 150039 one sabotaging your online job search. On several job search websites, I've posted a job only to waste hundreds of applicants' time inrepparttar 150040 process. Each one of those hundreds was hoping to getrepparttar 150041 job, each applying in good faith, assuming that they had a chance--that at least one ofrepparttar 150042 hundreds of them who applied would getrepparttar 150043 job.

In fact, I ended up not selecting any ofrepparttar 150044 applicants forrepparttar 150045 job, even though a number of them seem quite well qualified based on their resumes and carefully crafted letters. I went with someone recommended to me by a colleague.

Job Search Engine Sites' Inner Workings Exposed!

Why would I cruelly toy with these eager online job searchers' emotions? Why do people like me make an already impersonal online job application process even more inhuman? Actually, when you look at job search websites fromrepparttar 150046 employer's point of view, a few things become clear:

* Job search websites trigger an overwhelming tidal wave of applications.

In one day my email inbox got well over 100 applications. In fact, I had to pullrepparttar 150047 plug onrepparttar 150048 job posting when it became clear I would be drowning in applications.

* Most applications submitted on a job search site read like they've been plagiarized from a job-hunting manual.

One after another cover letter--fromrepparttar 150049 applicants who bothered to include a cover letter--looked like they could have been submitted in response to any job opening inrepparttar 150050 US, from burger flipper to rocket scientist.

Every applicant had goals of advancement and a desire to find an outlet for their talents. Very, very few bothered to makerepparttar 150051 link between these goals and desires and a job at my website copywriting firm.

* Most applicants on job search websites are not even remotely qualified.

I not only got fiction writers and poets applying for my copywriting position; a few computer programmers and graphic designers applied as well.

After all, why not? All they had to do was hit "send." Letrepparttar 150052 poor slob onrepparttar 150053 other end figure out if their qualifications matchrepparttar 150054 position.

Please, before you hit "send," remember thatrepparttar 150055 poor slob you're making work for just might have better things to do. At least remember that eventuallyrepparttar 150056 owners ofrepparttar 150057 website may catch up with you and throw you offrepparttar 150058 site for behavior that is, essentially, spamming.
