It can be difficult to land that initial interview, or even receive a response in the first place. However, understanding the challenges that you may run into ahead of time can help you plan your job-hunting strategy and achieve success!

There are too many jobsJob Seekers Preparing for a Strenuous Interview

This might not seem like a challenge, but it is—in the age of online job boards and websites, there is an overabundance of jobs out there, which can be overwhelming. You don’t want to send out so many resumes that you forget where you applied and the positions you applied for, but you also don’t want to limit yourself. The compromise: narrow your search down to 10 or so jobs that you’re interested in and develop an application tracking system that works for you and keeps your job search organized.

Drawn out application and interview processes

This is one we hear often: the process of interviewing for the job is lengthy, confusing, and frankly, there’s no time for it. Prepare yourself by thoroughly researching the company’s hiring process, as well as past interviewees’ experiences online. That way, you won’t be blindsided by a tiresome interview process and you’ll have a timeline to refer to.

Interviews aren’t working out

We’ve all been there before: you’re submitting your applications, going through several interviews, but nothing seems to be working. So, here’s another occasion where doing your homework can help immensely. Know the company you’re interviewing for, as well as the staff members, and practice with test questions as much as possible so you can enter that interview with confidence.

You don’t know what you want

This is perhaps the most common problem of job-seekers: they do not know what kind of job they want, making the search that much more difficult. Try using this exercise: get out a piece of paper and write down your ideal job. Add what you love to do and what you’d like to get out of that job. Then write down what you’re willing to compromise on, or experiment with. Go from there!
