If your job search isn’t going anywhere, you’re getting a signal from Mother Nature that it’s time to try something new. I hear from people every day who say “I’ve applied to 114 jobs through online applications and I’ve only had two interviews” or “I’ve sent out 86 resumes without a nibble.”
Of course, the hiring system at nearly every medium-sized and large employer is broken. That is clear. Still, you can’t put your career on hold waiting for employers to fix their broken recruiting processes.
That will take years, and I say that because even the forward-looking, talent-aware employers who work with us on renovating their old-school recruiting processes usually plan on a two-year schedule for their projects. The bigger the organization, the longer it takes to change things.
