I’m looking for some insight. I’ve been job searching for more than a year. I've been diligent in reading through job descriptions and matching my experience and skills to the position I'm applying for. I've tailored my resume and cover letter to highlight the matches they are looking for. After submission, if I haven't gotten a confirmation back, I contact them to confirm receipt of my application and then wait. and wait and wait.
I understand the process, but what I don't understand is getting an email saying thanks for applying, but we are going with someone who's skills and experience are a better match. I've got 9 out of 10 on their list but no interview.
This has happened multiple times, and I've seen the same positions reappear more than once. I'm super frustrated. Any thoughts?
