Each job posting has hundreds of applications to navigate and only limited time to investigate. Companies use automated filtering technology which ranks applications in order of relevance. The recruiter is also trained to manually scan applications quickly and reject 95% of those that apply. Does your resume pass the 7 second scan test? They are working to a client brief which often includes a narrow selection criteria. If the relevance of your resume is communicated badly you will be rejected.
This type of hiring is usually when a family member or friend is doing you a favour. It is much harder to get a paying job when it is an arm’s length transaction. Without a resume you have unproven skills and have not established any sense of trust.
It is very likely that you haven’t positioned yourself correctly. Did you establish the relevance of your overseas experience? Have you established a relevant link between it and the job you want? Are you a former FMCG CFO applying for a SME Book-keeper role?
If your job application is thorough, why should a recruiter believe that you will show more care if actually hired? When clients pay good money to use a recruiter they are not looking to experiment with a risky hire.
