In today’s crowded jobseekers market, Andrea Doven knows how important it is to stand out from the crowd. A career human resources expert with over 20 years in the industry, Andrea stresses how crucial it is to give quick responses to job inquiries. “When you see a job posting online, you have to know that hundreds of people have lobbed their resume to that job posting,” Andrea says. “When an employer asks you for an interview or a phone conversation, and it takes you a long time to respond, you’ve missed the boat.” Other candidates have almost certainly responded before you if you wait too long to follow up for a request like this. Of course, this makes it very difficult for a job candidate to get their foot in the door, with other candidates lining up for a job.
Taking too long to respond can set up a negative impression as well, potentially demonstrating that a job candidate isn’t on the ball when time is of the essence. “A good resume is important, but there are many other attributes employers are looking at when evaluating candidates,” she adds. “In order to rise to the top of the pool, a candidate must respond quickly to requests for interviews. It shows that the candidate is taking the process seriously.” In addition to having the skills employers are looking for, the way candidates present themselves says a lot about how they will approach the challenges they face if offered a position. Time management is ever-so-important to employers, especially when deadlines are tight. Right from the beginning, timely responses to requests for more information or for an interview tells potential employers that a candidate is always ready to tackle tasks.
Andrea, on the web at https://www.pinterest.com/andreadoven/, cannot stress quick response times enough to candidates. “If you’re looking for a job, stay on your phone, look for those emails, and make sure you respond as quickly as possible,” she says. By doing so, a jobseeker may position themselves ahead of their competitors, and that take-charge attitude also looks good to potential employers. The payoff can be tremendous, setting candidates up for success with a new employer and demonstrating excellent time management skills.
