I am appalled at the lack of response I get from job posters after applying for jobs through LinkedIn. I have 13 years of sales experience, with a successful record of exceeding goals. I also, have a promotion into a managerial role, and excellent references.
I was laid off from my previous position due to lack of inventory and I’ve been applying my ass off for 3 months now. Although I’ve had a few interviews, the application/response ratio is probably less than 10%, which is concerning.
Does LinkedIn ad some layer of screening that I don’t know about? Like maybe my resume doesn’t contain the right wording or something? Also, if the positions posted aren’t really hiring or are already filled, shouldn’t it be considered false advertising or something . Anyone else experiencing this, and feeling as frustrated as me? Those who got around it, how did you do it?
