Frustrated You Didn’t Hear From Back From an Employer? You’re Not Alone.


Client Centric Executive Employment Solutionsan Australian-based professional job seeker services firm, recently published an article entitled:

“Why Employers Don’t Always Respond To Unsuccessful Job Applications?”.

A good question to ask indeed.

If you’re frustrated that you didn’t hear back from an employer after submitting a job application, you’re not alone.

More often than not, job seekers receive a response back from an employer saying that they were unsuccessful and wish them all the best, or they don’t hear back at all. Or, it’s just one of those cold replies that are worse than not hearing back anything at all:

You were not successful, thank you.

The article makes a good point. Employers can receive anywhere up to a thousand applicants for a single position. So you can imagine how time-consuming it would be to provide personalised responses to each and every unsuccessful applicant.

Sure, you take the time to prepare your application and tailor your resume and cover letter, only to be unsuccessful.

I have written in the past on coping strategies for dealing with job rejections, as well as an article entitled: How long can it take to secure an interview?

The article also makes the point to stay focused and keep applying. Not letting one or ten job applications let you down or demotivate you.
