I cant get a job i;ve tryed cvs newspapers emailing the company and applying everywhere? Topic: Cover letter to get business
June 16, 2019 / By Vickie
Question: I've been looking for almost a year for a job, and I've applied everywhere about 3 times spending hours on my application forms to make sure I've given the best answers, i spent around 4 hours on updating my CV and checking all the CV help websites and Covering letter websites, still, I have no job. KFC told me I was not ''Qualified'' enough although i have passed English and maths, A* in business etc. I don't know how else to try because everywhere tells you to hand in a CV which I've done around 7 times now, why do slobs and dole dosser get the jobs and people who generally can't be bothered when there's people out there who really want a job but can't get one?

My answer is based on me not knowing your age, experience or education qualifications. If it's your first job that you're looking for - it's the hardest one you'll ever find. After a short time in the workforce and a few skills, everything will become easier, but that doesn't help you now. Handing out cvs to everybody is very much a "hit and miss" exercise - more "miss" than "hit" unfortunately - as most of them end up in the trash can. You have to pick your mark and zero in on what you want to do. Find out the name of the person in charge or the HR Manager in the Business that you want to be involved in and address any correspondence personally to them. Keep your cvs short and to the point - there's nothing more frustrating for an HR Manager than to read a bunch of cvs that go on and on for pages and pages. When you get an appointment for your interview - do some Internet research on the Company. Find out what new innovations they are trialing. Find out how the Company became so profitable and what kind of Specialised Products they sell. If you do this and you ask some pertinent questions about the Company's past and future - you will have an enormous advantage over any other applicant who is after the same position. At the interview - dress conservatively.....not ultra modern and don't wear too much over powering perfume. Above all - don't smoke a cigarette 2 minutes before you arrive for the interview - you will smell of tobacco (especially noticeable if the Interviewer doesn't smoke) After the interview - send another e-mail to the Interviewer, telling them how much you appreciated their time and how keen you are to have an opportunity of doing the job. This small "trick" will work wonders for you - I promise. Good luck and NEVER QUIT TRYING!!! If you wanna add me as a Contact for more help............pls feel free to do so.

Don't just send the resume, send a cover letter telling them your specific situation. Explain why you would like to work for them, and even detail some relevant experience listed on your resume.

Living in NYC is nothing like South Carolina, nothing. The cost of living alone will be outrageous. You might consider seeking employment with a company that has offices in NYC. That way you can get to know a job well before deciding whether to make the move. Your college career center should be assisting you with job applications and job searches. Make sure you get offical copies of your transcripts along with references from any of your professors. Good luck...

You should always do a covering letter - don't just send your resume. In it, state exactly what you said above i.e. you're willing to relocate and that you have three weeks left before you do.

if ur applying for jobs in another area it is implied that u will be moving. and if your qualified enough they will give u a call back or email and u can tell them then about ur time frame and reasons. it is unlikely that they will hire u in the first interview. some interview processes take longer (months). just depends on how fast they want to fill the position and how badly they want u to be working for them. most places will try to work with u on whatever time frame unless its absolutely ridiculous (and 3 wks isnt)

Shaelyn Originally Answered: Statement of purpose for applying for a job in a company?
I haven't heard of a statement of purpose for a job search before. It's more customary to either include career objectives on the resume, or to write a general cover letter. I'd suggest combining the above two items. Write 2-3 paragraphs including: - Brief summary of your key qualifications (highlight school + work experience) - Career objectives -- include both short term and longer term, describe the opportunities you are looking for, be specific if you need, but be flexible if you can so that it's relevant to as many possibilities as possible - Other notes -- mention anything else relevant -- languages spoken, desire to work certain hours, willing to relocate, etc. Good luck!
