Why can’t qualified people get jobs?

October 25, 2019

There isn’t enough attention given to people who are unemployed, qualified and want a job. 

A company puts up a job description on its career website or on a job board and the position is flooded with hundreds of resumes for a single job posting. 

The hundreds of resumes come from people who are under-qualified, qualified and overqualified, which makes it a time-consuming process for the HR team to find the right fit for their company. Often, these hundreds of resumes are not carefully reviewed which means in a lot of cases qualified people don’t get the job.

The time it takes to find the right candidate and then interview them is constantly rising plus, most employers are not looking to hire people who are currently not employed. The job market is often chasing after people who already have a job, as it is believed that they are the most qualified for the role. The problem with chasing the employed is it takes time to eventually get them on board as they expect the hiring company to match or better their current job situation.
