You remember the common love catch line “never too busy for you!” Let’s assume Mary (the girlfriend) asked if she could meet up for lunch with Peter (the boyfriend). Peter could respond – “am never too busy for you my dear” this implies that Peter can make time for Mary no matter the circumstance and this is simply because it's among his priorities likewise, if Peter is not interested in Mary, “I’m busy” would come in handy. As human beings we sometimes tend to use the “I’m busy” answer as a way out from doing something. The other scenario would be if Peter is actually busy, if he is concerned and wants to have lunch with Mary he would instead respond this way “at that time I will be meeting one of our good clients over lunch, can we do it tomorrow?” he would basically try to explain the reason why he is busy Instead of defaulting to “I’m busy” for an easy answer. The “I’m busy” response is most times a spontaneous one that people use as a filler when they don’t want to out rightly say I don’t want to do it otherwise if they did want to, they would make time maybe not at that particular moment but at the next opportune moment. You have certainly been given the “I’m busy” answer at some point or you have given it yourself as a way out of a situation at office. Everyone out there is busy when they are not working, they are attending a meeting, dealing with traffic, picking kids from school, parenting, doing house chores, maybe going to school themselves,  the list is endless. So responding that you are busy you could as well imply that the other party isn’t later on meaning that what they are talking about isn’t a priority. Remember being busy doesn’t necessarily mean being productive so do not use the “I’m busy” reason for an easy answer when confronted with a situation that requires your attention instead, talk about what you are working on that is making you busy. This will sound more professional and will be easily accepted by the other party. Everyone is busy out there someone would rather hear about how you’re managing your priorities not how your priorities are managing you. Over to you; Feel free to share your opinions in the comments for discussion, we believe that the answer to every situation is out there just that we are not expressing our opinions enough.

Employers don’t put all their eggs in one basket. They normally interview a number of candidates before choosing their best then why should you a job seeker put your eggs in one basket where you make one job application and wait. You might feel you’re the ‘perfect’ candidate for this job, there is no way anyone else would have more or better experience than you, the company would be mad not to hire you, etc. All of which may well be true from your perspective, but you have no idea what is going on the other side of the interview table. It’s usually such job seekers who end up being devastated when they’ve put a pause to their job search in anticipation of securing the job they have been interviewed for. Understand that as much as you have the best experience, education, there could be someone better so set your mind to believe that as much as you might have a good chance to take up the job there could be someone better. For this reason, you should throw as many applications out there this will increase your chances of landing more interviews and eventually a job. In so doing, you could as well end up in a situation where you have multiple offers for you to choose from. Not only is this a confidence booster but it will put you in the driving seat during your job search. Regardless of how confident you feel about a role, always keep applying to other positions. If things work out, great. If they don’t, you’ll be grateful you kept going. Many job seekers pause their job search when they get interviewed. Yes, being interviewed is a good, meaning that not only has your resume got you the interview spot, but you’ve also got the skills and experience the employer needs. What you don’t know is who they are actually looking for. You won’t be the only one interviewed-yes you read it right. The competition may have been significantly reduced by the time you are shortlisted for the interview, but there could be other candidates competing for the same job, candidate who could be better than you are. Don’t assume that since the interview seemed positive, you should merely wait for an offer of employment. Don’t feel completely self-assured that you will get the job, because you do not know who else the employer is interviewing otherwise, you may wait endlessly. The “Don’t put your eggs in one basket” moral in your job search means, until you have secured your dream job offer from an employer, don’t stop applying, attending interviews and networking. We hope this article can be useful in your future job search well, do not hesitate to share your job search experience in the comments.

More than 80% percent of applications are discarded or ignored at first glance well, we know you want your application to be part of the 20%. Here is why your application can miss being among the 20%; Use of non-standard CV formats There are normally standard CV formats, if you use the non-standard format recruiters may get confused trying to find information about you on your CV, don’t get overly creative in designing your CV simply use the standard formats. All employers are looking for is information about you, and they should be able to find this easily on your CV. Spelling, grammar and/or punctuation errors Many recruiters assume that an application filled with spelling, grammar and/or punctuation errors means the person’s work execution will likely be the same. With these kinds of mistakes your application will most likely find it’s way in the dust bin. Always try to proof read your applications and or CV before submission or ask a friend to. Unexplained gaps in your work history As long as you explain what you were doing during a time gap on your CV there isn’t as big of a deal. Maybe you went back to school for your master’s degree, then include the additional degree and related dates in your Education section. Don’t leave work history gaps that aren’t explained. Unexplained gaps in your work history can lead your applications to the bin. Lack of the minimum required years of experience and skills If the minimum number of years of experience required for a position is 5+, you might be able to get away with only three years of experience. But if you have much less than that, you should think twice before applying for the position. Lack of the minimum required years of experience and skills may get your application out rightly binned. Don’t apply for a customer relations manager positions if you are not a people person or you can’t handle customer complaints. Concentrate your applications for roles that closely match your experience and skills. We hope this helps to turn the 80%,20% figures around.  We’d love to see the day where only 20 percent of applications end up in the bin instead.
