Dear Friends:

If your organization is looking for new employees, please let your HR recruiter know about AH Jobs List and forward them this link on how to post a job.  It is affordable for both for-profit companies and for nonprofit organizations, and there are terrific discounts for multiple job postings and for 'job bundles' that only expire when you use them.

If you know of someone who is looking for a job or a new opportunity, they can subscribe to receive the weekly job postings delivered straight to their email box by clicking here.  In addition, follow Andrew Hudson's Jobs List Fan Page on Facebook or follow AHJobsList on Twitter and you'll receive real-time updates when jobs are posted on the site throughout the week.

Lastly, there are only 2 AH Jobs List Career Bootcamps left for the spring: Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 21 and next Tuesday, April 28. 

I have trained hundreds of professionals in the strategies and techniques of successful job seekers including personal branding, using LinkedIn, conforming your resume to applicant tracking systems and many, many other necessary job-seeking skills. I'll help you avoid the things job seekers do to sabotage their job search and teach you winning strategies of successful job seekers.

While more boot camps will be scheduled in the summer, register here quickly if you are wanting to attend one of the final spring sessions.

Why, What, When, Where?

This week, I thought I’d answer a couple of frequently asked questions I get from AH Jobs List subscribers.

Andrew: It happened again. I put several hours of time and energy into customizing my resume and a cover letter to apply for a job that I’m eminently qualified for. That was five weeks ago and I’ve yet to even receive an email that the company received my stuff! I’ve had this happen many times before. In one instance, I was a finalist for the job and went through three interviews. After the final interview, the company never even called to tell me I didn’t get the job! Why does this seem to be a common practice with employers?

This is probably the biggest frustration I hear expressed from job seekers. What makes it worse is when you don’t hear back but the job posting also insistently declares (usually in all caps) NO CALLS!

There is simply no acceptable reason for this rude practice. Organizations create more bad will (and bad branding) for themselves when they advertise a job but then refuse to even acknowledge the job seekers that spend their valuable time crafting resumes and cover letters applying for the position! Companies should know that they are being bad mouthed by the job seekers who are subject to this treatment.

Think about it: What if a company advertised themselves all over town trying to engage a targeted group of consumers and then, when the consumers tried to engage them back they got no response? It would make no sense, right? As a matter of fact, the inherent message would be to avoid doing business with that company because of their shady business practices. It's the same principle at work here.

Some HR professionals tell me that they simply receive too many resumes to respond to each applicant. They also complain that the number of resumes from clearly unqualified applicants outnumber those from the qualified ones, and they don’t feel compelled to respond to those who are simply 'fishing' without meeting the basic requirements of the job. 

Other companies tell me that the resumes they receive are scanned into an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) and are ranked by a computer that is searching for keywords, dates and phrases that best match the qualifications and as a result, they only engage with those who rank high.

This is clearly frustrating to the qualified job seeker who might slip through the cracks or be overlooked because their resume didn't exactly match what an ATS was looking for—which again goes back to the necessary elements of good old fashion networking. Don't always rely on the resume submission procedure to guarantee that you will stand out. Make phone calls. Identify people who you may know within a company and enquire about the job. Ask industry contacts if they have any insight or can refer you to someone at the company.

Clearly, the best practice for employers is to send an automated response simply acknowledging that the company received the resume and to let the job seeker know about the hiring process and deadlines for consideration. Something like, "Due to the high number of applicants for our positions, we can’t personally respond to everyone. If you don't hear from us by *insert date here* please know we appreciate you applying and we will keep your resume on file." At least then the job seeker is not left wondering.  It's not perfect, but it's a relatively simple solution that can benefit both the job seekers and the employer.

::::::

Andrew: Often on job boards, I see the same jobs being posted over and over again, week after week.  In addition, I sometimes click through to a job and the job is no longer posted. I’ve also seen situations where jobs are posted, but the position is quickly filled by an internal candidate which leads me to believe the job wasn’t really available to anyone outside the company to begin with, but they had to post it to ‘appear fair.’  Are the jobs on job boards real?

This is a great question.  

On AH Jobs List, I take great efforts to make sure the jobs posted are real and and that the companies that post jobs on AH Jobs List are actively recruiting for the positions they post. I also try to weed out the ‘pyramid’ type job scams you see on some of the large job boards and on occasion have refused to post positions that I believed were a scam.

In general, I’m happy to say, we are successful in posting 'real' jobs on AH Jobs List.  Saying that, from time-to-time some things happen that screw up my intentions.

  • A company stops accepting resumes when they receive a good enough sample but before the stated deadline in the posting (which is also a good reason why job seekers need to ignore the deadline and apply as soon as the job appears!)  I hope the company will tell me that so I can take the position down, but sometimes they don't and it might appear as if is still an active posting.
  • The organization changes course and decides either to promote from within or to not fill the job at all.
  • The company doesn't update their jobs website so it appears the job is still open, even though it might have been filled weeks ago. This happens a lot when searching on the job posting aggregator Indeed.com
Other than AH Jobs list, there are only a handful of websites I recommend that I believe are good sources for legitimate job leads in Colorado.

The job board of the Colorado Nonprofit Association is a terrific source for job seekers wanting to hunt for job leads in the nonprofit sector.

LinkedIn’s job search feature is another great source for real, legitimate jobs. You can search for jobs that are posted directly in Colorado and you can utilize all of the other LinkedIn features to help you research the companies and connections you may have that work at that company.

Indeed is the most popular job posting aggregator. You have to be savvy in searching for specific positions to weed out some of the ‘junk’ jobs, but its advanced features allow you to search by location, by date and by keyword.
