Job Advertisements, The Pitfalls

When you look at a job advertisement initially donít be fooled into thinking that itís not for you or that you donít conform to the specifications contained within the advert.

Most adverts are written with the express intention of ruling candidates out rather than in as they target specific levels of experience and knowledge. Very often there is a sublime message contained within the advert based on financial recompense for this position without actually stating the figures attributable to the job.

It is far easier for a recruiter to rule a candidate out based on specific criteria such as experience, qualifications, and knowledge base rather than the more subjective criteria such as personal attributes/characteristics, strengths or personality.

Ironic, considering that personality plays such a big part in the interview process itself, however at the initial screening these are the factors that are considered.

Donít rely on job adverts, recruitment agencies or head-hunters as your primary link to the job market. Get out and network, take the initiative and make the calls to firms and organizations that have captured your attention and for whom you feel you would like to work.

Remember that accurate targeting of prospective employers is a far more effective way to conduct your job search and is not nearly as demoralizing as receiving rejection letters from your applications because you have failed to meet as little as one of the criteria set out.
