Why applying for jobs is not like buying Lottery Tickets!

I meet a lot of people who have applied for over 50 jobs.  Most of the people who come to us are in this situation.

Last week I even met someone who had applied for over 150 jobs, without any success.

It seems that applying for jobs online is now like buying lottery tickets.  The more tickets you buy then the greater chance you have of winning. This does work for the lottery as it is based on statistical probability.

However, being successful in finding a job doesn’t work like that.  It is not based on statistics.  The more jobs you apply for doesn’t increase your chances of being successful.  Unfortunately, it is not a ‘numbers game’!

They way you increase your chance of ‘winning’ a job is by first getting the right skills and experience to the level where employers see you as immediately valuable to them.

This is a core principle to how we help job seekers at Industry Connect.  We have seen it work hundreds of times with participants on our programmes getting jobs.
