It is ridiculously easy for a job-seeker, no matter how qualified, talented & competent, to get beaten down and to start to think there’s something wrong with him or her. Its easy to bog down the finest of talents & shatter their dreams.
Hundreds & thousands of amazingly well polished Talents are running haywire because of useless recruitment methods. These processes are insane and sucks out our energies. The recruiting process is broken. Qualified people can’t get job interviews and if they do manage to get them it will drive them away.
Many Talents feel frustrated and sucked out that they discount themselves. They think they do not have what it takes to grab that Offer. In reality, YOU are not alone. You are not defective! You are talented, smart and creative but the recruiting process is designed to beat your confidence out of you and grind you down to mush.
The recruiting process is broken from start to finish. The way companies write job ads is ridiculous, ineffective and insulting. The way they screen resumes through mechanical means by searching for keywords is downright idiotic. The way we interview people in a stiff, scripted way that sucks all the juice out of a conversation is embarrassing.
There is nothing whatsoever lacking in you. If you read job ads you might start to think that everyone else in the world has more qualifications than you do, but that is not true and nearly every job-seeker feels that way.
The biggest problem with the traditional, slow, bureaucratic, and soul-crushing recruiting apparatus is not that you could spend months lobbing applications into it and never get a job. That’s bad of course, but it isn’t the worst part of the broken recruiting system.
Recruiting practices in most organizations do a better job of driving talents away than inviting talented people in. If employers care about talents, they’ll treat job applicants like gold once they’ve got them into their pipeline. They’ll make recruiting for open positions their highest priority.
“Every organization gets talents they deserve”
