I’ve sent out ten resumes so far during my job search, and I’ve received only one interview invitation. The other nine resumes resulted in nothing but silence. Why? Am I doing something wrong?
Here at Free Resume Builder, we receive multiple versions of this question every week from readers and visitors, so you’re not alone. Without knowing any of the details of your situation, we can say there’s a strong chance that you’re doing nothing wrong—You just need a little patience and perseverance, and you need to recognize that if you’re applying for a position in a competitive field, the odds won’t always work in your favor. Even if you’re qualifications are very strong, there may be twenty other strong contenders for each open position you pursue. That being said, go back through your resume and make sure you can answer yes to each of these questions.
If you answer no (or “I’m not sure”) to any of the questions above, get some help. Visit Free Resume Builder for writing and formatting tools that can keep your job search on track.
