A question that we always hear, why can’t I find a job? Now, there are many reasons why you may be struggling to find a job, and we want to help you to realise what you may be doing wrong.

Looking In The Wrong Place
Depending on what type of job you are looking for, you may be looking in the completely wrong place for this job. Most people will look on Indeed to find a job, but not every employer will post on this platform. Some companies will only advertise on their own property if they are looking for local people. Others may focus more on LinkedIn or social media job advertising. So make sure you look around to discover where your potentials jobs are being shared.

High Expectations
It is possible that your expectations are set slightly too high. You need to consider what company you want to work for, what experience you have, and what pay you’d like. You need to be open to accepting less pay and a lower level of work if your desired company are looking for work. Do not have your standard set too high or you may not find a job in your expectations.

Outdated CV
Another reason why you may not be receiving job offers is if your CV is out of date. By this we mean, you have not updated it with your current information. You have not updated your home address, email address, phone number, etc. It is also a good idea to update your personal statement on your CV to showcase your latest experience and how they’ll help potential employers.

These are just a few of the many reasons why you may not be finding a job. It can be something so simple as you are looking in the wrong place. Or maybe you forgot to update your details so have been checking the wrong emails the entire time.
