“I have applied to countless jobs via this website, have had many job offers, and when it comes down to it I always have to say no to someone. I really think it has to do with which companies you apply to. Larger corporations are more likely to stockpile your applications and you may never get a call. So keep applying even when you think you had a good interview because it is always better to turn down an offer than be left without one. When it all comes down to it the more ‘no's’ or no calls you get the closer you are to getting that ‘yes.’”
Great advice, Jazimyne! You may think a job interview went amazingly and are waiting for the offer, but someone else may have interviewed for the same position with a little more experience, or with some qualities you may be lacking. You can never know with absolute certainty if you will be offered the position, at least not until your phone rings with news that will make your day.
By sitting around and waiting on a job that you may or may not get, you are wasting precious time and may be missing the job out there that is perfect for you! It is always better to apply for too many than too few positions.
