Has anyone ever applied for a job post a second time after getting an email saying you’re not fit? If so, any success on getting an interview? Maybe because your resume needed to be updated?

I think it is worth a try. I am going to try with a job applied to a month ago and the role is still being advertised. Although I think trying again within a week is too soon. Maybe wait a couple more weeks before trying again.

I applied the next couple days only because I knew it was an ATS in place (and not a friendly HR person reading my resume) and I didn’t have enough keywords. I revised my resume and created a new account and applied again.

Absolutely. More experience a year or so later and you might be the right fit.

What about within a week or two after updating your resume 👀 or is that too aggressive?

I think it depends on how much you’ve updated your resume.

I think half the time they get a big pile of resumes and may have skimmed by yours so go for it! Although I guess in real estate it’s like that house that’s still on the market. You’re like “I wonder what is wrong with THAT house?! Maybe it’s haunted” lol

Depending on the ATS, you’ll possibly show as recently applying and being rejected, which will likely lead to another rejection. Most ATS’s don’t highlight key words the way they once did, so changing a few words on your resume probably won’t make a difference. We typically sort by date recvd, not key word match because let’s face it, most ad folks will have the same key words. It’s book/resume, agency, and brand that are the typical differentiators in the ad world. I’m mostly speaking for seasoned recruiters who have been properly trained and give a damn, by the way

Hi IBM sharks 🦈

So I got interviewed for a project by the IBM team. The interviewer told me that its a go ahead from their end, now the client will assess my profile and if they too are fine with it, I will be onboarded?

Is it true that we have client interview as well? If yes then after how many days of interview by IBM team, client interview takes place?

Or its just that if the IBM team is fine with it, we are selected for the project?

Any inputs on this will really help :)
