The trials and tribulations of finding a new role is a common theme for many job seekers. But why is it such a challenge to obtain a new role, especially when we are told that the job market is littered with open roles and anyone can walk into any position of their choosing?!
Hearing those words makes me do a combination of frustrated sighs and snickering. Why? Because I know that this is not true – yes, there are plenty of job openings, but it does not mean any job you so desire will be offered to you in a blink of an eye. No no, you have to work for it, be prepared for a number of obstacles, rejections and game changes along the way to a job offer.
But why? Why is it such an uphill battle to get a new role? Well, here are four reasons and how to overcome them.
