Besides submitting your resume online, any other tricks to get an interview? I usually LinkedIn message the recruiter/hiring managing for an intro. If I know somebody at the company, I’ll ask for a referral.

Anything else? I’m dying out here.

It’s so hit and mess. The reality is for one job role you’re competing with like 500 people...
just for an interview.

So I’m trying to find anything to get me in the door. 

Ideally you would ask a former colleague/friend at the company to share your resume directly with the hiring manager...

However, a low initial screen rate suggests you likely need to improve something about your resume or you are applying for non-specific roles.

Don’t think so. Many a times I get rejected for initial screening when applying directly. However, for those same very roles, I then try to get connected with hiring managers, and end up get an interview. So my two cents, don’t trust those initial screening too much. If you feel you are a fit, try to get your resume in front of hiring managers through a connection.
