After applying for 55 jobs 21-year-old graduate, Peter Lane, secured himself around 15 interviews – yet – never met any of his potential employers.
Lane told the BBC: “They were all video-based screening interviews – I didn’t even meet my potential employers, there was no way to tell if I’d impressed them with my answers or experience as there was no human interaction.”
And that wasn’t the end of the automation for the 21-year-old. As well as this, Lane found another issue through the form of automated rejection letters.
As he recalls that “Only 10% of potential employers have given me detailed feedback.”
“As jobseekers, we need to know where and how we can improve – whether that’s with our CVs, job experience or even personality.”
One things for sure, at Cordant we’d never leave you hanging without feedback.
