I posted a job vacancy today. It’s only a small piece of work but I tend to stand by the people who’ve worked with me and it can often turn into a relationship that lasts for years.
My postings are very clear; this one states exactly what is required of the applicant, the skills needed and how much work is involved.
Yet I am receiving applications that talk about all this other stuff they’ve done – how they’ve worked with this other technology, how they’ve managed an SEO campaign, how they’ve done something else that I’m just not interested in.
Which basically means I can’t be bothered to read your application.
Take action: What is your (potential) client actually looking for? Don’t waste their time by talking about a load of other stuff that isn’t relevant.
Overwhelmed? Running your own business? Sometimes wish you could just go back to your day job?
I'll send you one quick and easy tip per day to help you move forward
