Let’s imagine two scenarios: the first, you’re unemployed and have been for the better part of the year. Perhaps you have looked in every nook and cranny for job in your field and you’re just not getting the call backs for interviews. You need to ask yourself a question:
Are you applying for a job which you are qualified? If you answer no to this, that may be a reason you have not been contacted. If you are qualified, and are still not getting interviews perhaps you need to enhance your resume. You can do this by incorporating some buzzwords in your resume that the company used in their advertisement. This will surely catch their eye.
However, if you are already employed and are looking for better hours, better pay or a more advanced position, the most important rule is to keep your current job while looking around. You don’t want to be left without a paycheck in this tumultuous time. Also, don’t go around your current job talking about your wandering eye, this may cause adverse repercussions.
When you do apply to a new position and possibly get an interview, be as open as possible, but do not disparage your current employer. You want to put forth the best possible image of yourself – not an unhappy worker that puts down their employers.
Regardless of your current state, two to three days after the interview, unless specifically told not to, be sure to email your interviewer and simply thank them for seeing you.
