"I've applied for more than 100 jobs with no reply..."

Here is what messages I find in my inbox daily:

"Hey Olivera, I've applied for more than 100 jobs in the last few months with no reply, what should I do??? I'm going crazy…"

When I dig deeper, here is what I find:

🔴 They believed that serial applying for any job they find online is the way to go

🔴 They have an uncomplete general resume checked by their friends/family/gf/bf/their dog (btw, they said it's awesome)

🔴 They apply mostly through job boards

🔴 They have no clue how to build a network and connect with other professionals

Is this you?

Stop playing the numbers game because you're not going to win.

Save your time and nerves, and do this instead:

🟢 Find 3 job postings that you're at least an 80% fit for weekly

🟢 Research the roles and companies, find connections with your background

🟢 Prepare your job search tools (resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, bio, portfolio…)

🟢 Reach out and get advice from a professional

🟢 Connect with people who work at those companies, and others who are in the field you're interested in

🟢 Press that apply button once you're absolutely sure that your application is the best it can be

Job search is a strategy game, forget the numbers! Except when you are negotiating your salary 🙂

Work smarter, not harder. 🍀
