I have applied to several job advertisements and have not been invited for an interview. What should I do?
One reason may be that we are still in the hiring process. We review and screen every application that we receive which takes time. One of the advantages of applying online is that you can access the status of the job that you applied for at any time to see which step we are at in the hiring process. If your contact information has changed since sending your resume, and the hiring process has not reached the evaluation step be sure to provide the necessary updated information to the location where you submitted your application. If you have a contact name for the job competition, you can look the person up in the government directory. If you have applied to many job postings and are not getting invited to interviews, it may indicate that your resume is not expressing your skills and knowledge very well. See “Top Ten Interview Tips for Preparing for an Job Interview.”
The decision to interview may depend on a variety of factors, including your ranking against other candidates, the number of positions being filled and the number of people who applied.
