Have you ever wondered why a recruiter never called after you submitted your résumé? If so, you are not alone.
Here are nine scenarios and some advice:
Situation: Too many responses and not enough time: One advertised job can bring as many as three hundred responses in less than three days. It is logistically impossible for a recruiter to reply personally to every applicant.
Advice: Network your way into the company. This is the best way to circumvent the tidal wave of résumés recruiters face daily.
