Signalling Tactics (Why You Can’t Get a Job)

In a perfect world, the employees with the best skills would get the best jobs, and all employees who wanted to refine their skills would have the opportunity too. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case in the short term.

In the long run, we often see that ‘the cream rises to the top’, but hiring isn’t a long-term game. Because of this fast-paced, technology-driven world, the hiring process has continued to get quicker and quicker. How are qualified applicants supposed to signal their worth to the employer if they aren’t being represented properly?

The knowledge gap between a company and potential employees is growing. Therefore, our signaling tactics must grow with it. The term signaling is most commonly aligned with one’s educational level. Today, with a growing number of college graduated in the workforce, it is much harder to separate yourself from the competition. 

Furthermore, on average, 250 resumes get sent into every job opening within a company. Making it nearly impossible to differentiate yourself in today’s staffing industry. In today’s market, it is crucial that you have an in with the employer. Often, the best way to get into the company you’re aspiring to work at is to make a connection with someone already working there. 

We have spent our careers building a wide network of AV Industry firms for job searching candidates to take advantage of. We can be the ‘in’ you need with your dream employer.
