If you have been out of the job market for a while, it may take a while for you to become workplace savvy again. If you are getting knock-backs from employers, consider the following advice:
- Re-visit your resume. Employers have been known to bin resumes that don’t appeal to them or whose information does not look relevant to the role they are advertising.
- Re-think the employers you are targeting. Maybe they are not family friendly.
- Perhaps you are exhibiting a lack of confidence. Talk to your family and friends about what you said in the interview or to the recruiterand get some feedback. You may need reinforcement that you are great!
- Don't talk about your family siutation in a job interview. You are there to demonstrate your suitability to the position you have applied for. Be clear about your skills and how your experience is relevant to the position.
