You are listening to trinity employments, eight player Matchmaker podcast starring your host and the Co founder of Trinity Employment Specialists, Cory Minter.
Hello and welcome back to the A-player matchmakers where we’re always looking for different ways to add value to job seekers and employers. In the title of this podcast is why only 2% of applicants actually get interviews. Have you ever gone to a website and applied for a job and felt as though, man, I just got dumped into the biggest black hole of black holes available? Well, I can promise you based on, you know, the, uh, the experience that I have here at Trinity with a great Medical Jobs Tulsa team, I speak with a lot of people that are always looking for jobs. And one of the biggest con frustrations with most anyone now is that they feel like they’re going into a black hole whenever they ply applied for a company. And I’ll even tell you, I’ve had people tell us that about trinity because we’ve gotten so big now. We have so many different job openings and so people apply on our, on our, uh, website and we do our very best to try to let people know, hey, we’ve received it, we’re going to take a look at it, expect to call this, this amount of time.
And we make our application process really, really simple and quick so that people don’t feel like they’re wasting their time. However, whenever they drop the resume in, they still sometimes feel like I’m in a d, I’m going to deep black, cold right up until they get called. And so I’m going to talk about this, I’m going to talk about why and hopefully I’m going to give you some really good ideas on how to keep from getting stuck in that big dark black hole. And then I also want, I want you to understand why you’re stuck in that big dark black hole. Um, and hopefully I’ll shed some light on, on this. See the Internet is made it very easy for people to search out and apply for many job opportunities. But sending out more applications doesn’t necessarily increase your chances of getting hired. And what’s happening is, is people, because it’s so easy to apply anymore, you don’t have to go in and fill out an application anymore to apply.
You can just do it online and you can, in some instances you can upload one resume and apply for 25 jobs in just, you know, 25 clicks of a button. And so it’s really, really simple. Um, the, the systems that have automated this have created this problem, but we’re going to talk about this from an employer standpoint and I’m really hoping that this is going to shed some light because here’s the thing. Employers have told, um, bullion, um, I’m sorry, both warned that sometimes as many as 75% of applicants applicants are not even qualified for the given role that they, that they’re applying for. They just applied for it because it was real quick and easy with our Medical Jobs Tulsa. Experts say that the only, even a smaller fraction of that are even selected for an interview. Um, in fact, uh, Robert Meyer, president of job market expert says that 98% of job seekers are eliminated at the initial resume screening and the only the top two candidates make it to the interview.
Fixing employment market, fixing the employment market requires helping job seekers become the top 2% of candidates who can actually meet the employers rigorous requirements and easily hit the bull’s off for the employer to work with our Medical Jobs Tulsa. Online recruitment software company, again, bullion bullhorn, surveyed 1500 recruiters and hiring managers and found that such irrelevant applications was the biggest turnoff for them with our Medical Jobs Tulsa. 30% of them. And in that group, 43% said that they would actually blacklist candidates from other jobs as well by suppressing their names from even ever coming up in future resume searches. Holy smokes. So with that in mind, there are three ways that I’ve, that I’ve come up with that are action items that I think we can try to help you. Um, see, this doesn’t mean that you have to, you know, have every single bullet point listed on the job listing. There’s such a thing as a credential creep where employers flood a job with the list of qualifications that no one could possibly do a reach.
But if you’ll read the job posting carefully and make sure that you understand the actual duties of the job application and if you can make a significant contribution to that role, then apply. But make sure you read it and make sure you’re qualified first. That way you don’t get blacklisted. I want you to know, I don’t understand blacklisting someone, I don’t, I don’t understand this. Now I get that people are frustrated with it. And when you get into a corporate mindset, I worked in the corporate world for awhile and I understand the cutthroat way in which they think to get a better level of Medical Jobs Tulsa. And sometimes you just have to be that way to in order to survive because you’re always looking behind your back, always trying to become more efficient. And I understand that if you feel like people might be wasting your time, you’ll cut them. And then I also get it here at Trinity, we get the SA, we get people who have been unemployed for five years that still applied for the same jobs.
Like we know who they are. Our recruiters talk about it all the time. And I like how it’s the same person applying for the job. But one of the things that you can do is really pay attention to it and, and do the job. You can. Again, I don’t understand blacklisting someone. Um, but I understand the reason why and hopefully this will too. But what we’re going to focus on, on what are some things that you can do to make sure you never ever get considered to be blacklisted? Number one, explain how you stand out on the job. Employers want to hire someone who will make their lives easier. So your resume should show what your past successes have accomplished. Avoid listing your, uh, work duties and tasks, but instead focus on your achievements. I mean, you’ve got to put your work duties and tasks on there, but you want to make sure and show what you’ve actually done that has been a success.
Make sure the employer knows the added value that you have brought to your new role. And bear in mind that these should be described in such a way to highlight their relevance to the current job that you’re applying for when it come to Medical Jobs Tulsa. So what that means for everybody is, is that you can’t, you can’t just use one resume for one job, like you’ve really got a doctorate up and make sure that it is catered to that job and you can’t lie on it and just make stuff up and just try to make sure and put things on there. And that’s never going to serve you or the Employer v uh, very well at all. In fact, you’ll just get, it’ll cause you a lot of trouble and it’ll waste the employer’s time. But you can do everything that in your past experience and put that on the resume.
It’ll help you, our promise. You just make sure and be a little bit more specific when you’re, when you’re applying, take the time to do it right. My mentor told me a long time ago, if you don’t have enough time to do it right the first time, when are you going to have enough time to do it again? And he was right. I understand it now. I didn’t understand it when I was 14 though, and it was a long, long bumpy road for me to understand that lesson. I don’t want you to have to do that number to apply for the job that you’re applying to. That’s a grammatically interesting sentence in it, but nonetheless, it’s really true. It goes back to what I mentioned earlier about people using one generic resume to apply for numerous jobs for our Medical Jobs Tulsa. And if that job title and your resume doesn’t match the job title that you’re applying to a, there’s little chance that you’re gonna make it in that upper 2%.
Similarly, if you’ve ha, if you had the qualifications for that job, if your career objective doesn’t match with the row, you’re unlikely to be hard for. It gives the impression that you would be a bad fit for the job and that you wouldn’t stay very long in that position because it really doesn’t hit on what you’re looking for. So make sure that you put that you, you’re applying for the right kind of job for you. It’s really, really important. Um, and then we got the last thing here. Um, you, you want to make sure and explain how you stand out. Make sure that you, that you explained the things that make you unique, uniquely qualified for the job. Make sure that you put a point to it. Um, I would make sure that grammatically and the way that it’s written is, um, is written in a good way.
One of the things that you can do is you can go on Google and top out how to stand out, uh, on a resume as an accountant or how to stand out on, on my resume as a salesperson and go and take a look at some of the language that people have used to be able to describe not just what they’ve done but what it is that they’ve done really well. Try to use some statistics if you can. You can say, in sales, I’ve increased my, uh, our company sales performance by 23% by following, um, the diligence and the system that I put in place. You can put all sorts of things in there, especially if you’ve got statistics to back it up. I really think that that will help anyone when they’re trying to get noticed in the big dark black hole of applying.
