Nobody is perfect, but in today’s world of talent acquisition – that is recruiting to you mere mortals – discouraged applicants, frustrated with repeated rejection, say it feels like being perfect is the only way you will get an offer – perfect with your sourcing, perfect with customizing your resume and dead-bang perfect in screening interviews. 

It is just not fair, one applicant exclaimed.   She’s right. If you are looking for fair when it comes to finding a job, you would be better off visiting Dallas in October – we call it the State Fair of Texas.

The keywords and phrases from the specific job description matter. Understanding your value proposition matters, being able to customize it for each particular job matters, and specifically relating your experience and success to the needs of the prospective employer matters. 

Everything you do for each job application matters. 

I am so sorry, but best effort and a liberal shot of hopeium will not matter.
